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!
...and only on permeant press because nobody likes a towel with wrinkles.

Why not get this towel?

Its a bit expensive compared to the rest but it reduces swirl marks substantially. It will also last a whole lot longer than the other towels. I will be ordering one as soon as I get my jeep working. It's supposed to be the best of the best. While your at it pick up one of these washing pads and a grit guard. If you take good care of them you will never make swirls on your paint. You can buy them off amazon too. I think adams is a vendor on jeepgarage too.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help get you dialed in with the goods to use for your own vehicles, as well as some to help you "detail for dollars!"

Nick does Adams have anything like a telescoping wash mop? I used to have one and I liked it because I didn't have to get my hands wet in the bucket and I could reach easily across the roof.
