Costco towels are cheap but you get what you pay for. They are a pretty bad blend of materials for mircofiber towels. I think someone did a side by side test using a brand new costco (or similar towel) and a high quality microfiber towel and rubbed them on a CD. The costco towel scratched the CD the other one didnt. I also think they put a fabric softener on them from the factory which can leave a very light streak on windows which drives me crazy. I work at costco and have used plenty in the past so I have some experience with them. Ive slowly been building up my microfiber arsenal over the last year or two from Adams and GlimmerGlass. I absolutely love the great white drying towel from adams for drying and I use their double/single soft towels along with various towels from glimmerglass for removing polishes/waxes and stuff like that. I just waited for the Adams microfiber towel set to go on special to get the best bang for the buck but they have been worth it. My costco towels have been set aside for jobs I dont mind tossing towels away if they get ruined like door jambs, under the hood, wheel wells, stuff like that. Hope that helps but im sure more experienced people will chime in.

I think someone said 80/20 was the minumum, so that should be even better I think? I got some at walmart that were like 15 for $10 in like 4 different colors 80/20 was the material.

Look for the 70/30's on the Chemical Guys website cause they are there as I have bought quite a few in the last 6 months.The prices will blow anyone away and you dont need a code or wait for a holiday to come up to get a good deal.

Adam's towels are by far the best in the business! You get what you pay for in microfiber. Whats the sense in spending the time and money on pricey polishes/washes if all you're doing is scratching your finish with the microfiber you're using. Don't skimp on microfiber. Not if you really care about your finish. You'll be able to FEEL the difference in an Adam's microfiber and virtually ANY other brand out there. I've tried em all. Can't beat MADE IN THE USA and the best customer service in the industry.

Besides.....I don't know of ANY other company who will give a 110% guarantee on their products. If you don't like them or they don't perform as they should. They'll pay YOU to return them. Now tell me if the "Guys who know Chemicals" will do that for you!

Don't mind Jason... he'll recommend pretty much anything else ever since we caught him trolling our forum under an assumed female identity. :LOL:

I just got mine in from chemicalguys last night. I got the 70/30 regular towels. Less than 2 bux a piece for a dozen of them. Haven't had a chance to use them yey, but I'll let you know. have to wash them first too.

I have all Adams towels. Then a couple cheap ones I use in my wheel wells and shit like that. But all the ones that touch my paint or wheels are Adams. Best ones I've used by far. Havent used the Chemical guys ones so I cant comment on those.

Another bonus is Adam's has the best customer service I have ever seen. If you have a question or problem they will have it resolved ASAP.

couldnt have said it better. i use the costco ones for really dirty stuff like wheels wells.
As for the Adams towels, it seems like you could never have enough, i must have like at least three of each towel they carry. and i still want more:)
