The Dry Me Crazy is the real deal! Corey, do you think Thomas would consider adding a foam core drying towel to the finest MF arsenal the world has seen?

Hey Old Tiger,
I am not sure if you meant ME with "Thomas", but I will reply to your question.

What do you exactly mean? Something like the "Guzzler HD Waffle Drying towel"? It had also a foam core coated with waffle weave microfiber. If you mean this kind of product, the Problem is, that the flexibility is completely gone when you add a foam core to a towel. Even a very thin foam doesnt help much (and at the end: Less foam means less soaking ability).

We have a big production meeting this week over here in Germany - we can discuss to make a prototype just to see how it works. Dont expect too much, in my personal opinion this wont work well - bet never say never ;-)

Thanks for the prompt response! Something like the Mothers or Guzzler HD is indeed what I Asked about.

I like a foam core to pat dry the vertical panels. I prefer Mothers to Guzzler HD. The MF does indeed not flex. This allows me to hold the towel against a vertical panel and pat dry the panels.
Thanks for the fast response!

The product in the link below should work as a "pat to dry" towel. It is microfiber with a foam core and I use them now and then. They are cheap, can be found in any discount store and they absorb a lot of water. However, you can not dry with them as usual because you must pat the panel dry, not rub. I don't use them often because I usually spray a quick wax type product as a drying aid after a wash and this requires you to rub dry more than pat dry: http://www.amazon.com/The-OriginalTM-Microfiber-Absorbent-Multipurpose/dp/B004M0P34M

I do admit that I would love a towel that you can easily hold flat against a door panel for example. That would be awesome!

Thanks for your Explanation. As said, we have tomorrow a big Meeting and I promise to discuss this idea with our production leader. Because we are sewing and cutting the DMC in Germany from now (Fabric is still Korean made) we have a good chance to make a sample towel with a core inside. Please be Patient with this Story, we have a few other very important products in development which must be finished first... but we will try to make a sample, I promise!

In the mean time, you can buy the Mothers foam core on Amazon with free shipping. It is real nice on vertical panels. I follow up with the e incomparable DMC!

Dear Friends

I was just staring at our two Dry Me Crazy towels on their hangers last night. I was admiring their awesome construction and feeling awe over how well they dry and how much water they can hold.

For anyone who's new to Dry Me Crazy, I hope you'll put the towel into a clean bucket of water and keep it there until it's fully saturated. Then pull it out and see how heavy it is.

The Mothers MF is located at -LINK REMOVED-


My review is below!This is the best MF ever for blotting! Is thick foam core allows to lay the towel out flat on horizontal or vertical panels. I hold the MF in my left hand up against the panel Im drying. I pat the towel with my right hand. Overlap patting to ensure all surface under MF gets blot dried. Next I move the MF over and repeat. No marring because the MF doesn't rub over the paint. This method works great for Rinseless or Waterless washes too. Hope this helps!

I hope MM decides to try a prototype.

I think even if they put some kind of straight wire or something in 1 side of the seam it would help to keep the towels shape when you hold it over the door panels.

We had the big production development Meeting today and as promised, we discussed about the "sponge core" for a drying towel. And what can I say... we will build one in a couple of weeks as a prototype. It was very interesting even for me, because we talked about SPONGES in General. The sponges we actually use in the Incredisponge and even in the -pad / mitt, are sponges who can HOLD much water. But there are special foams available, who can "attract" (hope this is the right word) water! That means, the sponge could work like a "magnet" when water is nearby.

My concerns are, that the fabric of the DMC towel would be too thick so it Needs too Long time till the water Comes thru and gets in contact with the sponge. For sure, we will try and if there is a demand we can create this Special towel. But first we have to try.... Needs some more weeks to go but I will Keep you informed!

Great news! I think a waffle weave MF may be better. Or maybe one side waffle and the other DMC MF!

I will certainly purchase if you decide to manufacture one!

On a different note, can you please come out with 16 x 16 yellow fellow 2.0? 16 x 24 is too big for polish removal, IMO

Terrific! Since no one else has volunteered, I will bite the bullet for this very important project and be your lab rat and official field tester. Just send me ten prototypes to try out. I can give you a fair assessment and evaluation because I am an expert on this foam-microfiber kind of towel. You see, I have been washing dishes for nearly 60 years and always use the product I linked in an earlier post (the dish drying microfiber mat which is microfiber towel with foam/sponge center). Feel free to contact me anytime and I will let you know where to send them for this very important and impartial field testing trial. PS-if you think ten towels might be a little much you can send five instead.

My Dry Me Crazy linted in the beginning pretty bad. Took about 5 or so washes to get rid of all the lint. I do indeed love it now.....I gotta get some more.


Jim, you have a good point with the foam core......I still use the Mothers towel for the same application. I believe you turned me onto those a while back.

Hi Jim, as you probably recall I spoke to Thomas about that and he provided us a lot of info on what took place. Its very rare but does happen occasionally. Sometimes there is some loose fiber but usually one wash and dry in the dryer (tumbling effect) will shake any loose fiber out and be in good shape, (sometimes maybe a couple washes) but sometimes (rarely) it can take a few washes as you found.

It happens Corey... No big deal. End result is it's a great towel(I save it for my personal vehicles) will be getting more in the future. Thanks for helping me out buddy! :DDMJ:

So today was my first opportunity to try out my DMC and I must admit, I was skeptical at first, however after today's experience, the one word I'd use to describe the DMC towel - WOW!!!

Microfiber Madness DMC towel knocked it out the park! Awesome product 10/10!!!

Totally in agreement. I bought 2 of these several months ago and I am finding that you could dry most cars with only one. All my waffle-weave towels are relegated to other duties now.

Like most products from CarPro-US.com it's hard to describe to people how awesome the DMC is. This is an edited quote from a friend who bought a DMC from me.

"that motherf*#@ers awesome. my Absorber got demoted to drying my wheels."

I can't put it any better than that. :)

I let my money do the talking - bought one large size Dry Me Crazy a month or so ago just to check it out against some others, last week ordered three more that should be here tomorrow. Nothing else to say, great product, capable of drying my Mercedes GLK350 or Mitsubishi Endeavor size vehicle by itself.
