I prefer Microfiber towels from HY Supplies Inc. They are quite absorbent and dry the surface without making lint !! So i use that cloth !!

Thanks for this cool tip! Great video. I'm always fighting water spots so I'll give this pooling technique a shot, do a leaf blower treatment then follow up with my VERY NICE Adams micro fibers. If that doesn't do it I'm gonna "throw in the towel" and just do a 110 mph dry-off.

I have to second this motion. In fact, the towels from Adamís I use on car are far superior to the ones I use on myself.

Got a set of these on prime day for $10. They are very plush. I use the rag company eagle edgeless too. Use their pluffle for detail spray. I have the bulk pack of microfiber from costco I use for the wheels. I still like the zaino towels I have. For some reason those do a really good job for removing wax even thought not as plush as some of the others.

Just tried the 28x40 carpro dhydrate towel yesterday, super impressive, quickly drag and pull across hood roof and trunk, wipe down the glass and sides of car (without pooling the water) and this towel got it done, absorbing all that water. Thanks for the recommendation Joe!

I've been using Viking final shine monster jr. Towels for polishing, I cannot believe how ultra plush these are, picked them up at a local auto parts store, they are packaged semi open so you can check out how plush they are right on the shelf, completely amazed.

Best drying towels:
Adams Ultra Plush for two bucket washes
Rag Company Twistress is my new favorite for rinseless washes (car is less wet, and one towel will dry the whole car)

Polishing
If you insist on using something fluffy: MF Madness Crazy Pile, RagCo Eagle 500, actually I find the Jay Lenoís Garage blue high pile towels to be excellent as well. Personally I am using less and less of the fluffy stuff as find they tend to lint more often and push product around more than remove it. As far as general towels go, Corba Super Plush JR and RagCo edgeless 365 are very good multi purpose towels in my view.

Glad you liked the DHydrate. As "towel junkie", I haven't tried one yet that beats it for drying.

I did try one of those Viking towels years ago, and for a towel you can buy locally, it is the best polishing towel I've found.

But it pales in comparison the the Microfiber Madness Crazy Pile. A softer towel just simply does not exist.
It also keeps removing any sealant/wax residue long after other towels are completely loaded up.
They are expensive though.

The Rag Company Eagle Edgeless are the best "bang for the buck" polishing towel I've ever bought. 4 years ago I got 10 for $30.....I don't think you can get them at this price anymore, but @ $5 or less per towel, they are still a great value.

For rinseless/waterless/detail spray, the Rag Company Everest 1100 are fantastic.

Don't ever run microfiber towels in the dryer, just let them air dry, they will last for many years this way.
