Not all microfiber towels are created equal. We collected microfiber towels from Walmart, Target and K-Mart. They’re “all purpose” type terry microfiber towels. We wanted to compare them to our 16″x16″ All Purpose Microfiber Towel. We put the towels through three tests; a touch test in which we compared how the towels felt to the touch, a weigh test and an absorbency test. We made a video of the test:
