The Zwipes 12x16-inch microfiber cloths are among the best value products when it comes to car detailing.

They’re also very versatile, and can be used to dry, wash, dust, or buff the paint on your car. The cloths measure 12 inches by 16 inches, and come color-coded in multi-pack rolls. If you’re into keeping your car looking pristine, these cloths should be in your assortment of car care equipment.
It may seem strange to pick up a single microfiber cloth for the price of a multi-pack, but this product from car care giant Meguiar is worth it in many ways. The cloth itself is much larger, measuring 16 inches tall by 24 inches wide. The microfiber material used is of somewhat higher quality, and therefore can absorb more water for more effective drying.
As always, this cloth can be used for other purposes such as removing dust or applying wax, though it would be better to use a smaller cloth for the latter. Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber cloths are washable and re-usable, meaning you will not have to discard them after a single use.

3M offers products for seemingly everything, including car care. The 3M Microfiber Detail Cloth works extremely well as a car care microfiber cloth, but pales in comparison to its alternatives on several points. Firstly, the cloth measures 12 inches tall by 14 inches wide as opposed to the 12 inch by 16 inch dimensions more common elsewhere. Second, these cloths come as a single pack instead of the multi-packs that others offer. Still, the 3M microfiber cloths are reasonably priced and are versatile enough to be used for just about every step of car detailing.
