Microfiber towels and misc

My dad just got a 2014 GMC Sierra All-Terrain Plus recently. He wants to keep it really clean and such. For father's day I'm trying to get him some microfiber towels and new cleaning things. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Buy the car that you would most like to get beat in. The other guy will always be faster.

Best value microfiber towels that are good quality come from theragcompany.com

Get him some eagle blue endless towels. They are good towels and not too expensive.

If your looking for good value car soap then optimums wash is really good. Interior cleaner would probably be Adams total interior detailer. That stuff is just amazing.

I could go on but it would turn into an expensive endeavor quick.

I second theragcompany.com and their blue endless towels, wax applicators, gloves, etc.
They are very nice.

Maybe good to focus on just one area of car care and get him the stuff he needs for that, like a good set of wash supplies, or the towels and some detail spray depending on what you think he'll use most.

We have a decent selection of kits on our site right now for fathers day that are discounted, plus you can still use your CAMARO5 discount to save another 10% off. If you're buying today you also have access to a 20% discount here

We stock the edgeless towels as well - maybe not as competitively priced as TRC (we don't have the volume in towels to compete at that level) but if you're already buying other products the savings on combined shipping might be worth it. Just an idea -

Shop Enthusiast Grade ® Kits

Edgeless Microfiber Towels - 3 colors to choose from

Ragcompany.com. Eagle blue edgeless. You won't be disappointed. Fast and free shipping. I use ultima waterless wash as detail spray with eagle blue after i wash it with Adam's car shampoo. Also like Adam's butter wax.

Best towels are Microfiber Madness. Not everyone can/chooses to afford them and so you see the recommendations you do above.

Depends what you want to spend.
