Dirty Blades? Clean them up! With your (new) blade towel now shipping with (new) #MatrixBlades & #ApexBlades!

Competing with Reidell's super-shiny Eclipse blades?  Think it's just a microfiber towel or a polishing cloth?

Looks like abbreviated instructions to me. Must be a small towel.

The post had characters that truncated my cut-and-paste, sorry.  Edited to correct.

I think the Eclipse cloths are about the size of eyeglass wiping cloths. Maybe this is the same?

Gee, I wonder if this magic towel will work on lesser Ultima blades like my Aspires?

Sounds just like a gift with purchase freebie. Microfiber towels probably cost less than $1 wholesale.

I use no longer made anymore car detailing cotton cloths. Sweet! Better than microfiber, so I stocked up.

My Eclipse Auroras came with an ~11.5" X 10" polishing cloth.  At first I thought it was silly.  But it turns out to be very absorbent (don't know for sure, but I suspect it's microfiber).  Since it's thin and flexible, it's very handy for drying around the mounting plates.
