This is the plushest, most luxurious microfiber we have ever seen! Like your grandmother's bath mat, only thicker! It's 4X as absorbent as regular microfibers, because it contains 4X the material! So it picks up wax faster, easier, and with less effort, usually one or two passes. And it can be used much longer before cleaning. It's great for waterless and rinseless washing because it is super absorbent! Worth the investment!
