hi all just wanted your opinions on this really....
i have always used a standard chamois to dry my car, but everyone always goes on about super terry towels (megs) so i thought i'd give it a go...
my results - my car ended with some fluffy bits, which obviously never happened with the old chamy...

so what do you guys use, and whats advised to protect paint...
am i using the terry wrong for it to leave bits of fluff?
ta
andy

Terry towel no good for drying. I use it for removing polish. Wash mitt for washing.

Will be purchasing waffle weave drying towel soon. Shafe.

Yep, nothing can touch a waffle weave drying towel for drying :)

Terry towels are okay for general product removal or folded, they can be used as an aggressive application for products with cut.
