What is it:
A synthetic chamoismicrofibre hybrid drying towel, described by Autoglym as; A rapid drying, incredibly absorbent, easy to wring out, PVA impregnated cloth.
How we tested it:
Autoglym provided us with several of their towels to put to the test and we have done so on a range of vehicles, observing of most importance obviously the drying capability. Also of interest to us is paintwork safety, ease of use and quality of the product.
We Didn't Like:
We heard about the Insta-dry towels before they were released and were intrigued as were built up with high praise pre-launch. We never like to be critical but in all honesty, we don't really see a place for the towel. With prices ranging from £8-£12 for the towel, there are rivals on the market in the same price point that offer 2-3 times the drying power whilst having 700gsm+ of softness for your paintwork and much easier to use and store. We compared the towel side by side to another drying towel we have on test on a Mini Cooper and whilst the rival towel was slightly damp after drying, the car was dry in one hit. With the Insta-dry, we were stopping to wring the towel out and had to call upon a second towel to finish up anywhere near as quickly. Sorry, not one for us.
