    Thumbs up TRCís GLASS WHOOPIN` Towel - Review

    If there’s one car care task I’m fastidious about: it’s glass care. I can’t stand dirty windows. The number of FILTHY windshields I see in other people`s vehicles always amazes me. Not to mention hazy, smudge up windows are just plain gross and dangerous. How anyone can drive around without a crystal clear view of their surroundings???



    *Bias Review Disclaimer* The Rag Company sent me this item to use and review at no charge. Ok, now that bit of housekeeping is out of the way… Onto my review!

    From TRC copy for the Glass Whoopin’ towel:
    Ready to quickly "Whoop" Your Glass into Lint-Free, Streak-Free shape. No need to grab a second towel for those small spots where an all-purpose terry would offer some additional scrubbing help.


    Construction

    Weighing in at 320GSM, this 80/20 blended towel measures 12”x16”. This is not a large towel by any means - “typical” waffle weave 16” x24” (white) and 16”x 26” (blue) towels underneath for comparison:




    However, unlike the waffle weave towels the Glass Whoopin’ towel has a dual-texture design with a grabby corduroy side on one side and a smooth finishing side on the other.


    Corduroy side + close up:


    (Stack below are both waffle weave towels and a mirafiber towel)

    Smooth side + close up:



    This combination makes for one heck of a glass cleaning towel! The corduroy side grips the glass like you can’t even believe. Even when damp, it’s hard to move quickly across a glass surface - I’m not kidding!! Once you’ve knocked off the majority of the grimy glass, flip over the towel to the smooth side and wipe up any remaining streaks.


    In action

    Using the Glass Woopin’ towel + Mother’s Re|vision glass cleaner this patch of blue tape residue on my rear windshield doesn’t stand a chance:



    The residue is gone! Lifted up and away with ZERO streaks remaining.


    Here are some doggie kisses on my passenger`s side interior glass:




    All gone using only warm water! For now anyway


    Additional before and afters:


    Before:


    After:



    Before - post-paint correction windshield complete with watermarks, splattered polish, and dust:



    After:


    After doing all of the glass surfaces inside and out I didn’t find a single spot I need to use the microfiber terry cloth corner on. The corduroy side was just that good and cleaning the glass with either a glass cleaner or just water..

    Conclusion

    I honestly think this is one of the best glass towels I’ve used. The corduroy side will give your wrist a workout due to how it well grips the glass but that’s ok - the payoff is worth it for crystal clear glass. Speaking of: this towel only cost $2.30. That`s right TWO DOLLARS AND THIRTY CENTS!!! I’m buying more - that’s for sure.


    Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this review. Thanks for reading! And a very big thanks to The Rag Company for generously introducing me to this towel!!

    Thanks for the review. Looks like a good towel. The size is a bit awkward for me. Hard to beat a good waffle weave towel like the blue one you have.

    Thanks for the close ups of the material. I was always trying to see what it looked like.

    Thanks, Guz!

    Size wise, I agree with you - it`s a hair smaller then I prefer BUT darn if it`s cleaning power doesn`t make up for it. This towel is impressive.

    Since it is on the small side. Does the Towel get saturated quickly?

    Using glass cleaner on the exterior glass not so much. It`s a densely woven towel.

    Interesting design/weaves. That corner seems odd, but whatever. Sounds like a good towel to try out. Wait...at that price, yeah, I`ll be checking it out.

    Thanks for the good review.

    My guess the corner has a "stiffener" in it to get window against the dash...... Just a guess.

    Good eye. It`s basically a triangle of low pile microfiber added to help "scrub" more stubborn spots away. Totally soft and not at all stiff.
