Micro Fiber NOT all created equal

For years I have gone between Sams Club and Costco micro fiber towels. Costco towels have tags, which I guess should be cut off because they can scratch. I've also noticed that the Costco MF towels lint badly. They leave alot of fibers especially on glass. Sams Club MF towels have no tags and don't seem to leave Micro fiber lint when you wipe down with them, which is nice.

I just wonder if the Costco towels lint more because they are softer, which might not be a bad thing. Apparently micro fiber is not all the same. I read a post that the Meguiar's MF towels lint, as well. ANy thoughts on this?

I have some Meguiar's MF towels and I didn't think they lint bad at all though after I first washed my car last weekend, I noticed scratches in the clear coat. Not sure though if it were these towels, the wash mit or the waffle weave drying towel that did it though. All these products were Meguiar's BTW. I am doing the Zaino thing as I type and have since ordered and used the Zaino blonde towels. I do recommend these as they seem softer and are borderfree with no tags on them.

Whatever you do though and no matter what towels you use, wash them before using. Wash them using a liquid detergent and then dry them stopping them while they're still a little damp. Don't use any fabric softener or sheets too. Even though I did wash the blonde towels there was still some lint but nothing significant and nothing to worry about.
