    I like Adam's Great White Drying Towel, after using the pooling method. I can usually I can do the whole car and still wipe the windows streak free.

    I have a Microfiber Madness Waverider and quite like it. I also have Phil's Uber drying towel and like it as well. I find myself using the MM Waverider more often because it doesn't leave any streaks of water left behind. I also use AMMO hydrate and I quite like it. But I'd say go with a high quality waffle weave, you won't be disappointed!

    DD's uber super drying towel is EXCELLENT. Microfiber Madness Waverider is excellent too. Some people like waffle weave, so like really fluffy ones. IMO, a drying towel is as good as the LSP present. If the surface doesn't have protection, it won't work as well as drying a freshly sealed or coated vehicle.

    I personaly do not like microfiber towels. They require careful maintanance in terms of proper washing and they are pricey as well. Try to google PVA towel. I used it for the last 6 months and it does what it should. You can throw it in washing mashine with regular detergent and it will not loose its effictiveness unlike microfiber. The only downside is it gets stiff when dry but its a matter of getting it wet again. Good luck mate:)

    Never heard of this. Microfiber is not cheap but it does its job well...

    Uber drying towel hands down the best and softest that I've used this far. I would stay away from Adams great white waffle weave. It gets caught on everything and pulls up threads during every use. I also can't justify the price for such a mediocre towel IMHO. I would suggest a leaf blower, electric of course, and the uber towel.

    I will try the PVA towel, they cost from $8 to $10 which is a third of Uber!

    If you don't have a leaf blower or master blaster, I would recommend the DD uber drying towel and DI waffle weave. I have 3 of each and they are good quality towels that won't scratch or marr. I own a 2000 honda accord, and my paint is on the soft side.

    Good luck, let us know how it works out. I've been burned before when I didn't go with a proven winner. Often "The cheap comes out expensive."

    I use the griots garage microfiber drying towel. Its large and holds a ton of water. I dried my entire mustang with no streaking and was able to do the glass as well with no streaking.

    I used water sheeting to remove as much beading as I could prior to drying and had great results.

    I uset the PVA towel and i am very satisfied with the results. I do not see a difference between microfiber and this and the price is on a low end too. I put it in the washing machine and i did not notice any difference. Since microfiber requires careful and proper washing not to ruin it this is much more practical. I know there is no magic towel out there that will not collect the smallest dust particles unless you own air blower.....

    Overall I am very satisfied and if it keeps working I will definetely stick with it.
