Im due to buy some new cloths, sadly there is no asda near me or costco. I have purchased one or two clothes in the past from detailing store's and found they seem better at removing polish ect then the cheapo ones i get off ebay. Is it really worth spending the extra money tho as its 25p vs £3.50 in some cases? If you get your somewhere cheap and think they good please share ebay store ect.

Also i hear people going on about wiping their car down with IPA wipes
would something like this do are do i need something stronger?
100 x IPA Wipes 70% Isoropyl Alcohol Swabs NHS Quality | eBay

im stuck between these two cheap vs normal price i guess

IPA wipes should be strong enough, but you'd probably get through them quickly..
the screwfix ones aren't of very good quality, ideal for dirty jobs like engine bays, interiors, exhaust tailpipes etc.
for paintwork, i use the costco ones, which i get off ebay here means they're about twice the price of going to costco direct but i don't know anyone with a membership card and the nearest branch to me is about an hours drive each way (plus Dartford toll fee) so i'd probably end up paying more than the ebay price in the end..

From research, I'm lead to believe that using IPA neat could cause softening of the clearcoat - not a massive deal on a car with hard paint, but certainly on a Honda, the last thing you want is to soften the already "melted butter" soft clearcoat.

so would you not use it or just dilute it?
