No, they are not microfiber, just get some don't worry about the color, and wash them in hot water and use a little bleach. Then you will have no worries.

Thanks for the suggestions about the unlocatable white microfiber rags. Yellow ones are everywhere!

I have seen them on line but the shipping was 3x the cost of the towels in many cases.

What are the odds of convincing DW that this will be such a fun filled task that she should do it all by herself?

[QUOTE=Davdeb1;1092418]As for the white cloths, just go buy the lightest color you can find, wash them, and use some bleach. They won't stain the RV. I used yellow ones that had been used for a while and the left nothing./QUOTE]

From my own experience. DO NOT bleach a microfiber towel. It will no longer absorb the way it used to, if at all. Also do not use drier sheets either. It is just best to wash them with regular laundry detergent and hang them on the line to dry.

Amazon.com has free shipping for orders $25 or over of items Amazon stocks in its own warehouses. I maintain a wish list for items I want to get but I'm in no hurry for (books, DVDs, etc.) so, if I order something that I want immediately but it costs less than $25, I can "pad" the order to get it up to $25+ without having order something I don't really want or need.

Somewhere between fat and slim.

Its not hard, just a little tedious. No doubt the DW would do a much better job than yourself.

Doing the prep work will take far longer and is much more boring than actually applying the Red Max.

Don't skip it though, or you risk entombing all that dirt and crud underneath a gleaming coat of RMP.

Remember, the first coat of RMP looks awful, the 2nd not much better, by the third you're smiling and the 5th you're asking neighbors to come over and look at your shine.

Take before and after pictures for full enjoyment.

I'm trying to figure out why you guys want microfiber? It doesn't do any better than cloth diapers... and yes, they still make them. I just bought a pack to wax/buff the cars come spring...

Probably because your can buy them for less expense at all the wholesale clubs, and they are a great cloth.
The microfiber cloths have many uses, and last longer than most cotton cloths.
