2nd, I will use another dry towel and lightly drag across

3rd, I will use the remaining towels to wipe the excess water and dry it completely. Non of these shed, or shrink.

Had my car for 4 months and I look very close at all my towels to make sure there are no residue in the fibers before each wipe down. No matter what angles I look at on my car, there are absolutely no micro scratches or swirls on my car. Granted its ashen gray, I guess if I had a black car I would probably go to the ones you guys are talking about.

So far these work great.
Thing is. You are saying so far. 4 months isn't much. Personally I didn't see any swirls until almost 2 and half years. But now that I can see them it bugs me sooo.. Trying to reduce them as much as possible when you can( new car) is better than having to polish and all that to remove them. Th less you polish, the more clear coat ull have in the long run

So yesterday I went to auto zone to buy some stuff.. Stop by the towel section, and I think we need to be clear on what towels we talking about. They have some towels that seems alright. Kinda plush and fluffly.. Obviously not as much as the good ones... But I can see how the member whose cars are new and using those, won't see scratches or swirls right away...
