Meguiar's Water Magnet Drying Towel Review
Thanks for taking the time to read our review of the Meguiar's Water Magnet Drying Towels. These are a cleaning chamois and this X2000 model or type is one of the best sellers online.
These are large sized measuring 22x30" and are a waffle weave texture towel made of microfiber. You can buy these in a pack of 2, a pack of 3 or a pack of 4.
According to the manufacturer they absorb twice as much water as standard terry towels. These are really useful for shining and polishing your vehicle, while removing and drying off excess water at the same time.
They can be used on all types of vehicles including cars, RVs, boats, motorcycles, trucks etc.
Most people will use a bucket and sponge to wash their car and to get rid of the dirt and grime that has built up over time. When you have finished washing the car and rinsed it off, then that is the best time to use these towels for best effect.
We shall look into these in more depth in our review below.

The good news with these towels is that there are quite literally thousands of buyer reviews to base our opinion on. That also shows that these sell a lot of units.

Key Features of the Meguiar's Water Magnet Towels?
These measure 22 inches by 30 inches and that is larger than most other car microfiber towels on the market. The simple fact that they are larger means they can absorb more water and do that quicker.
That of course helps speed up the drying time. It also means you do not have to wring them out as much, and that is always a good thing.
When you have rinsed and then washed your car, most people will then rinse the foam or car wash suds off with cold water. That means there is quite a lot of water on the surface of your vehicle.
Microfiber towels are great at absorbing that water and then leaving a streak free finish. This type of soft towel does not damage the paintwork either.
These are much better than other terry towel options, and there is no white dust left either.
Streaking & Spotting
Some things in life are just very irritating, and when you have dried your car, the last thing you want is a car covered by light water spotting or left with large streaks.
You certainly don't want water marks either.
Our Verdict and Opinion
- These towels are best sellers online and they do sell thousands of these
- Overall the buyer satisfaction rate is very good at 88%
- With just a little care these do last for a very long time and as long as you don't use fabric softener when cleaning them
- Most buyers say these towels do not leave spots or streaks on your car
These are very good towels from a well known car care brand and we have used these a lot. There are many hundreds of these types of towels on the market, from a whole range of brands.
They also vary a lot in price. Our advice is to simply avoid the really cheap ones as they just don't work. You also don't have to pay a fortune for this type of towel either.
These are in our opinion as good as anything else on the market, and a great deal better than most.
