    Best? Just for average jobs. Got the high dollars already for horizontal surfaces of my finest.

    Amazon too many choices.

    I get the packs when I go to Sams Club. I wouldn’t over think it.

    I’m also an Adams Polishes fan, their borderless towels are very nice.

    Make sure you only wash microfiber with microfiber towels.

      Make sure when you wash towels, any towel, you do not use dryer sheets. It prevent them from absorbing. IMHO

        I buy the bags of cotton rags at Lowe's. Never did like the microfiber.

          Best quality is chemical guys gold professional. Not cheap, but I've washed mine hundreds of times and still as plush as the day I bought them 5 years ago. Wash warm water with no other towels other than microfiber. Dryer on low heat no fabric softener.
          I bought 3 packs of 12 off eBay at the best price.

                I got a large pack, great price at Sam's Club but I seem to have a lot of lint fibers coming off of them, and the lime green color is definitely the microfiber.
                I got a pack on sale at Home Depot, but my safest best towels right now are some 100% cotton plush towel set that I got new and only use for car cleaning.
                No fabric softener, EVER on car towels, and wash by themselves.

                30 years ago I always used Kozak dry wash clothes to dust the car. Realized they're still available and ordered a couple last night on Amazon for 20 bucks.

                  You have to be careful with cotton. Even "100%" cotton might use polyester threads around the edges. Polyester can scratch horribly. I know the purist claim diapers are great, but polyester threads are used in all cloth diapers (and T shirts, etc). After repeated washing the cotton starts to wear off and you are scratching when those polyester threads start showing.

                  Griots Garage microfiber is very good, but I have found the Chemical Guys gold to be stay plush longer over repeated washes. Once upon a time Amazon use to have some dark blue premium microfiber towels that were cheap and lasted a long time. They stopped selling those about 10 years ago and I wish I knew the supplier.

                  The Costco route of use it once, or twice and dispose should work well, too, but I like a microfiber cloth that has the velour edges. ANY towel with just threads exposed around the edges is a source for scratching as it can collect dirt and not wash out there. In fact, my disposal indicator for microfiber is when that velour edge starts to degrade. Then it's back to Chemical Guys for another round of 36 towels (about 5 years).

                    What I hate is all these clothes have tags sewn to them!

                      Doesn’t matter much on the 69, swirled up old whore. The 06 Top Banana has nice paint, creamy, from the Daimler days. The 09 Hemi Orange seems much thinner, the LLC days.

                      I buy the Chemical Guys Gold as well. Really like them. I think I bought on Billccm recommendation when I had to dry wash the GTX. I then buy the cotton cloths from O'riellys. Seems to make for a good combination. I’m really picky about my paint jobs on the GTX as well as both Lexus. Money well spent. Glad this was posted cause I learned some things about care for all this stuff that I didn’t know.

                        I use these borderless towels from Zaino. They wash up nice , VERY soft, work really well for the "washless" type products on the market. You've seen my cars close up so you now know how well these guys work.
