Recommend Towel Brand For Washing and Drying?

Just picked up a 2014 GC Limited (black). I'd prefer to hand wash over other methods (ie auto wash) to keep it looking fresh. I am looking for recommended towels before I go out buying something that could just be crap. I believe Micro Fiber is the way to go, but assume there are differences between different brands??? So...

What are the best towels/mit/sponge for washing?

What are the best towels (brand/type) for drying?

Thanks!

Re: Recommend Towel Brand For Washing and Drying?

Very similar I'm guessing, I have the Griots Garage yellow waffle with the pockets, and several of the microfiber thick drying towels from the local auto supply place...they supply dealers, etc, so it's not like Autozone stuff...they carry 90% of the same things as detailed image as far as pads, microfiber(all the different kinds), etc. the griots garage, I can dry off a car, hang it out and within an hour it's dry or less, I have 5 of those 5 of the thick microfiber don't go cheap on them. I use sheepskin wash mit(one for dirty spots, one only for the black car, one for the work truck)and the detailed image blue grout sponges for applying Iron X, or the fronts when it's really "buggy".

I have 2 of the Detailed Image one and 2 of the Griots Garage. Both work very well. The pockets one the Griots are a nice touch, but both work very well.

I use the Guzzler waffle weave series by Cobra. Have about 8 of them, very happy with the results. Just have to be careful that the waffle weave doesn't catch on any of the car badges.
