Zaino Z6 + Blonde towels

Anyone else notice that when using the Zaino Blonde towels with Z6 it leaves little tiny hairs stuck to the car?

I'm doing the Zaino treatment today and when I am doing the Z6 I see tons of tiny hairs (from the towel) stuck to the car.

I dont have the blonde towels but have some high quality cotton towels and they leave the little lint debris behind as well...

I just pull out the California Car Duster when im done and do a once-over and Bye-Bye lint!!

Did you run the towels through the wash before you used them? You should , that problem then should be less

I always wash new towels prior to using them.

- Wash using no fabric softener
- Dry on low heat
- Remove from dryer while still damp, and allow to "air dry".

This will alleviate any lint.

+ 1 , NEVER use fabric softener on anything that "rubs" your paint . it will transfer from the towel to the paint.
