The Big Green Sucker - the cloth that really sucks!
For years, we’ve wanted to have a microfibre drying towel in our range, but we were never able to find the right towel that satisfied our deeper wants and needs. So we set about creating our own version, based on the criteria of being easy to use, a decent size, huge GSM/super absorbent, long lasting and most importantly, be very plush to minimise the chance of grit and grime induced swirls and scratches from ever occurring. What we ended up with is something we are very proud of, which we named .
The Big Green Sucker is a perfect 40cm x 70cm in size with a huge surface area for water to reside in, but also a large contact area as you run over your car. As it's so absorbant, you can pretty much do a whole regular sized car without wringing it out. I can tell you that these attributes make drying a hell of a lot quicker!! Its final size came from much trial and error, as we found there is such a thing as having too much towel. With this final size not being too difficult to handle around the car.
Why does it suck so much?
The Big Green Sucker has been specially designed with a thicker, 1200 GSM split microfibre that had the tips of the fibre “flagged" to aid in faster water absorbency. It can hold over 2.5 litres of liquid in the fibres, which is some serious sucking! This high quality material ensures a far better drying experiance than any waffle weave drying towel or traditional chamois could hope to give.
So soft and plush
The build quality of The Big Green Sucker also ensures the towel is both extremely strong, yet gentle on your automotive friend, as well. The material is incredibly soft and super plush, to minimise the chance of adding extra swirls and micro scratches when drying your car.
These marks occur if you've missed a section when washing (usually on the doors or sides) and the dirt and grime is still there. The extra "give" in this plush material means you wont be pushing that dirt and grime back into the paint, thus eliminating those swirl marks from ever occurring. Something the chamois and less plush Waffle Weave towels cannot do!
The great "micro-soft" edges and recessed stitching in them further ensure it will never scratch or mark your delicate paint or brightwork.
It's good to be green
The bright green colour is to help you to see any dirt or grime you may pick up in the towel, so you can flip it to a clean side and not wipe it back into the paint, again minimising the chance of further swirls and fine micro scratches occurring.
Using the Sucker with Boss Gloss
Convertible soft tops
Soft tops require a different approach that is just awesome for. , as the materials will fight each other. Instead, simply open it up and lie it down on the surface and gently pat the towels surface to "blot" all the water into the towel. Lift it up and turn to the other side of the towel for the next section, and continue this pat and turn method around the roof till all the water is mopped up into it.
All microfibre over time will start to age and become less effective, and The Big Green Sucker is no different. Washing it with our Microfibre Wash with warm water after every use and tumble drying on the cool setting on your dyer is a really good way to care for and prolong the life of your Sucker, but eventually it will come time to replace it.
Boss Gloss is fine to use in the Sucker as a drying aid to help dry your vehicle, but using any hydrophobic type spray with a protective polymer in it with the cloth will adversely affect the cloth's ability to absorb water. This is why we don't recommend to use anything like After Glow, Fully Slick or Bead Machine with your Big Green Sucker.
If your Big Green Sucker starts to become less effective and is not absorbing water well anymore, put it in a bucket (6-8L or so) of warm water with 40ml of Microfibre Wash in it, and leave it to soak overnight. Next day, put the cloth into a normal machine cycle with warm water and 20ml of Microfibre Wash, then put it into the dryer for 30-40 mins on the cool setting. This will fix 99% of the problems with the cloth if it's not soaking up water how it should anymore.
