The SCA Microfibre Waffle Towel is the quick way to soak up spills and wash off your car, boat and around the home surfaces. The microfibre material takes this cloth to the next level. Each square centimetre is made up of thousands of fabric strands woven together, which cohesively expel pollutants from the wiped surface. This towel is machine washable and re-usable.The unique waffle-weave design ensures no streaks or smudges will remain on the cleaned surface and imbues the cloth with supreme liquid absorption powers to speed up the drying process. The towel itself will also dry out quicker as the waffle-weave texture allows air to flow through it more effectively than an ordinary rag.

Features
Super soft, absorbent microfibre
Unique weave for faster, streak free drying
For use on vehicles, boats & around the home
Machine washable
Size: 77cm x 62cm

    So what's so special about this blue waffle towel? I'll just google blue waffle to find out

    Would this do a good job cleaning computer screens?

      If this is a waffle weave towel it's generally used to soak up a large amount of water, generally used for drying the exterior of a car.

        Fyi. I have this and it's not good for drying exterior of a car as it leaves water marks. Get something with long piles like the big green sucker

          Interesting you say this because others say it’s almost as good as the big green sucker, you just need two per car if it’s larger.

          Are you sheeting the water off and drying it properly?

            @ATangk: I think it shows when you have a very good surface. i.e. I have a ceramic coated car with an additional hydrophobic coating.
            I use to use a nozzle which creates a wide laminar flow so to sheet water off first. But cant use that now use a bucket. The SCA waffle leaves "lines" if you look closely vs the green sucker.

            But I guess for general applications and uncoated cars which just need to be "dried". You wont notice much difference at 1-2m

          I have this and use it when drying my car after giving it a wash. It works really well! No streaks. I think perhaps you are not using it properly? I wet it first then wring it out very well and then dry the car. If you don't wring it out well, then obviously it won't work well. I usually only have to wring it out once when drying the car because it is so absorbent and a great size. I got a leather chamois as a gift, but it can't compete with this even after I have tried to break it in by using it a number of times. I am really happy with this microfibre cloth. I am just bummed that I paid full price for it rather than $4 (though I have used it for 3 years now and it is still going strong so I can't really complain)

            @Stan1912: To be fair I might not have used it enough to "season" it. But first time I've used same method as you mention but I do only one pass, at most two passes in a criss cross pattern and never swirling it over. Maybe I am being too pedantic as I like to detail cars and check under led lights.

              @pegasusx: Are you grabbing it into a bunch and then drying? Or opening it as a sheet and then dragging it across the surface?

              •  

                @ATangk: Ha no way bunching. Half fold for even pressure. Flat surface one section, flip other side, flick and then work on another panel. I've gone to using Bowens and Carpro drying towels only now after tring a number of towels including sca, Meguiars ax series, Costco ones and many others.

                  @pegasusx: Well, whatever works for you then, seeing as you've clearly tried many options haha. Im only washing cars that dont have significant value to me so perhaps I'm not looking as closely but it still seems clean and clear to me.

      You need one with finer hairs. Also this is pretty big.

    Good for teaming up with 70% isopropyl alcohol and cleaning a whole range of surfaces. Great for glass, aluminium and any screens.

    Might be a silly question, but would this be a suitable replacement as a sports microfibre towel like this? Great price and would be useful for hiking/camping?

    How does this compare to bunnings 1kg microfibre towels for $10

      The Bunnings one seems to be a bag of rags, while this one is one big piece of cloth, its totally different. When you dry a car, its better to have a big piece rather than rags, it would take you forever to dry it.

    Looks like its out of stock everywhere except Mt Druitt. If you choose the delivery option, it costs $9.50 via regular which makes it no longer a deal.

    UPDATE: Scratch that, looks like there's stock at SCA Bankstown. Just ordered some for pick up asap.

    $49.95 postage for me 🤔😂

  •  

    Would these be suitable for washing instead of drying? I.e. the method that uses a different cloth(s) for each panel instead of a single wash mitt.

    It's $3 if you are a club plus member
