    Got this micro fibre cloth on Saturday from Wilkinsons it's 70cm x 70cm, so nice and big, and it's very soft, but best of all it was 2 quid !
    Used it on Sunday 1st impressions very good. :)

    I have used these for years, brilliant.

    Also their glass polishing cloths, fine
    microfibre on one side, synthetic silk type material on the other side are the best for windows I have ever used.

    They cost one third of the usual specialist prices.

    One can get 50 for £14 in Costco. Not quite that big though.

    They are far better quality than the average, also probably at least twice the size.

    Microfibres are quite long and absorb a lot more than the short fibre cloths.

    If you buy the Costco ones £14 for 50 = 28 pence... ...you can buy yourself something useful and wrap up one up for SWMBO as a quality pressie!

    Last year my missus wanted something special and kept dropping hints.
    She wanted an "i" something.
    Couldn't for the life of me think what it could be but then remembered her using an old i ron.
    It doesn't work as well as the old one did though, it keeps burning my shirts and trousers, but she seems happy with it.

    Been rocking this one for the last couple of years....really absorbent. It literally clings to the water so you could throw it dry onto the car and it will stick.

    Went to Costco on Saturday - couldn't find the micro fibre cloths in SmartAmg's post. But what they had was a pack of 36: size 16 x 16 inches = 406mm @ 11.99 + VAT= £14.39 which is 40p each so maybe the pack of 50 for £14 was a special?

    I bought a pack and the quality is good - the pack will last for ages but meanwhile, I've just gift-wrapped one for SWMBO :cool: !

    Not remotely the exceptional quality, size or thread count of the Wilko individual cloths.

    Agreed, bought another two, just in case they stop doing them.

    Gift wrapped it?
    Surely a free envelope from the tax man would do?
    Adds to the intrigue!
