Default buying microfiber towels in bulk

Hey everyone, So since I have decided to start up a detailing business I started getting some new stuff. I have already got a new polisher, I ended up going with the Griots Garage 6" random orbital. Later I will upgrade to the Flex 3401. I have also got a ton of different tools such as brushes and what not. Well now it is down to microfiber towels. I have a ton of towels now that are for my car. So I am looking at getting a bunch of new towels for other peoples cars. By chance does anyone know where you can buy a bunch of MF towels in bulk?

I've got a business of my own, unrelated, but I think I can help.

If you're looking long term and high bulk, your best bet might be a Chinese supplier.
Microfiber Detailing Cloth - Buy Strong Water Absorption Microfiber Face Cloth,High Quality Microfiber Antibacterial Cloth,High Quality Microfiber Cloth In Bulk For Multi-pu Product on Alibaba.com

Its easier to work on alibaba by using Skype for communication. Use the alibaba site to relay your Skype contact info and go from there.

Sam's Club and Costco both sell a somewhat large package of Micro fiber 16"x 16" towels. There are 24 to in the package for about $12.

I figured they did, I just hadn't gone there because I don't have a membership lol. Here is a question for you guys. Is a microfiber towel a microfiber towel? and by that I mean, if I get something like that from Sam's club is it going to be the same or pretty close to the same as if I spent a little, or in some cases a lot, more for just a couple?

Well there are Ultra Plush Microfiber towels ay Sam's Club too. But all I use are the standard ones from Sam's Club and Costco on my car. Seem to be okay as far as I can tell. Cheap enough to rotate into different phases of cleaning and not worry to much about them. I bet I buy 4 to 6 packs a year. And the quality actually seems just fine for me. Does not leave swirl marks and such and I really try to keep my Monte in tip top shape.... See link below

Hey I was just looking from a business standpoint, not sure how many this guy is gonna go through. Also, pretty much EVERYTHING is made in China now, whether or not you buy it direct or not. I myself highly doubt the microfiber Costco or similar stores are US made, but hey I agree, if you can buy American. Being a business owner however, I can see that I'm in the same position as most others, manufacturing doesn't exist onshore anymore. It really doesn't.

edit:
link actually says mfg in China

If you dont have a sams club membership you can get them at walmart.com also. GarageMate Microfiber Cleaning Cloths, Pack of 40: Automotive : Walmart.com

One thing to be careful of tho is the tag. I had some cheaper ones that I picked up and they had a really still tag that could easily leave some marks.

I don't think you really need that many towels, just wash them and reuse. I only use Adam's as they source everything they can made in USA. If you go with the cheap MF towels, get a few first to try out. Some with stitched edges can cause swirls so check it out first. Here is a forum entry discussing your exact question. Many on Adam's are professional retailers so a good site to learn from. Take a look at this thread might help you out. I have tried the cheap ones and they now are for door jambs & my ATV. Good luck and remember you get what you pay for.

I always said I'd never buy adams microfiber. - Microfiber Products - Adams Forums
