Ideas, products to make life easier:)

I just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in these products we came up with and gauge the interest to see if it would be worth the expense to have the products manufactured and/or imported.

1- Billet Towel- Many people have a problem getting their billet polished perfectly and we are working on a weave, blend and design to address this problem.

2- Scrubbing Towel- A towel that will gently scrub windows, interior, wheels, etc without the abrasiveness of polishes or scouring pads as well ass for bugs on the front.

3- Waffle Weave Towel that would be 30% heavier/thicker

4- Waffle Weave Towel that is smaller for easier handling such as 16x24 or aprox.

5- 100% Wool wash pads

Please let me know your thoughts..., just looking at making detailing even better, faster and easier with top of the line products that would be an exclusive from Waynestowels.com if there was any interest:)

#2- sounds interesting.

#3- I'm happy with the weight of the Waffleweave I have now...

#4- might be nice for smaller areas, like when I'm drying my bumper and have to fold the towel to keep from dragging on the ground.

Thank you for the reply:)

we are currently working on some new technology and I am in the process of testing it as I type..., well, not this very second, but you get the picture, LOL!!

I think everyone will be surprised at the performance, feel, quality, weaves materials, etc..., it is just soooo different and I am really excited about it.

It will be released in about 8 weeks or so and then other products will start coming in.
This is a big advancement in detailing!!

Did you recieve the polish samples?
Wax sample?

I like the idea of a thicker weave..and BIGGER! Even after I blade off the excess water, I need a second towel to dry, so as not to leave the slight water marks. If you have a sample, I'm game. I had a few friends over to detail our cars and we WILL be ordering some things soon. Everyone loved the Glanz!

Thanks for the replies:)
We are working on it..., just takes a bit of time to really test new products and technologies to find any weak points..., then back to the drawing board. LOL!!

Thanks again!!

Hello to wayne from the desert. hehe

I love the Idea of number 3. I think I told you this once befor but I would love to see a larger walffe weave towel because of the roof on the focus is huge.

Dont like number 5 cause I love the micro fiber wash mitt too much.

Billit towel is a good idea.

Im sure what ever you do come up with will be awsome and I will gladly test it for ya . Will you charge more for shipping international, I have orders to go to germany in the begining of 06 and I will need my towel fix. Well im going to go sweat out in the 120s some more take it easy Wayne.
