Microfiber towels are now around 40 percent of his total sales. Gartland believes the product has been so successful because manufacturers in the marketplace provide a high-quality product. “There’s a lot of good stuff out there, ” said Gartland. “I think one of the reasons why [they’re] so popular is that even a fair microfiber towel brings value to the carwash industry. ”

While these towels can add value to your carwash, it is important to take the proper maintenance steps to ensure that you get the most use out of them. Gartland and Danielle Harsip, Marketing Director at ERC Wiping Products, have some helpful advice on how to make microfiber towels last as long as possible.

The first important step is that the towels be washed before they are used. There is a finish on microfiber towels when they are sold, much like there is on clothing purchased at a store, and they should be washed before using to remove this finish. Harsip offered this warning about washing microfiber towels. “Never, ever wash your microfiber towels with your terry towels. The lint from the terry towels will cling to the microfiber, and it will be hard to remove. ” Gartland said that “microfiber is attracted to everything and won’t let it go. ” This is why it is important to keep things away from microfiber that will do it harm.

Another tip that he offered is to use a damp towel as opposed to a dry one, when cleaning water off of a vehicle. “Water is attracted to water, ” he explained. “A damp towel should always dry better than a dry towel. ”

It’s also important to find the right towel for the location and purpose. A store that has high theft, may not want to invest in expensive microfiber towels. Harsip explained one rule of thumb to test the quality of a microfiber towel. “Good microfibers will make your hands feel like they are dry. It’s actually the microscopic fibers trying to life and trap the dirt. ”

As the market for microfiber towels continues to grow, there will be more improvements. One simple innovation that Gartland explained was more towel colors. Color-coding is something that he emphasized as very important in the organizational process, and more color options can lead to a better color-coding and organization system at your carwash.
