A dumb question is one not asked.

Best towels for drying are waffle weave, IMHO. They are usually availabe in large sizes, like 24 x 36 and can be laid out flat over panels, and allowed to soak up the water.
Another important tip for drying is how you apply the rinse. If you use the hose without a nozzle and let the water flow gently, you can get most of the water to "sheet" off the panels, leaving very little water behind.
It also helps to have a blower to blow water out of the joints between panels, under trim, etc.

It really is not that complicated, but for some reason you want to make that.
I just read through all your old post and found your reasoning for not liking wax...so you don't have to explain it to me. But honestly, you have me confused with someone else. I was just asking to learn something new.

That looks like an OK drying towel. Im gonna guess that there are only a couple of mills cranking these things out for different retailers.
Chemicalguys has a good selection of pretty much every towel you'd ever want, but I'm guessing you're an Amazon shopper and they sure do make it easy, especially if you're on the "Prime"
One last tip...wash any towel you getvat leadt once or twice and then dry it on medium. If it gets too hot it can in effect melt the ends of the microfibers...and don't ever use fabric softener on towels....that goes for the ones in your house too....It'll ruin the towels ability to soak up water.
Sheesh...who would have thought there is so much to learn about a lousy towel huh!
