    I use a carpro one. It's grey with orang edges if I remember right.

    Have been using this recently and highly recommend it. Tried a few different brands and this is the best I’ve tried yet. I also use the Kent ones, although usually for the other smaller jobs that doesn’t involve the paintwork.

    Anything around the £15 mark will do a good job....but avoid the extra large towels as they are cumbersome to use in general ie one like the chemical guys woolly mammoth.....too large something the size of 800mm x 500mm will be ok

    Liquid Elements Silverback (get x2 of them). Had mine for a couple of years now and they’re still great. Just the right size (50 x 80cm), dual ply (mega absorbent on each side), and a reasonable price. Use the forum discount code ASNET for 10% off at in2detailing (link below). They’re a forum sponsor (nowt in it for me for plugging them!)...

    But as @Bristle Hound and @jassyo06 have already said - many good options out there. Spend c. £15 on each towel and get two of them would be my advice, and Korean microfibre (IMO) is often (but not always) better than Chinese.

    The wee little yella Kent MF’s have their place, but more for door/boot shuts than the main bodywork.

    I’ll let someone else open the waffle weave can of worms...

    car pro boa

    steer clear of cheaper ones, i had an autobrite one which was red and when washed with other items the dye transfer was unbelievably strong - so it will ruin your other cloths/towels and potentially transfer to your paintwork too

    Another vote for carpro green boa. They are super plush and pat dry really well - I prefer not to drag towels or buff.

    This. I think it's called the carpro dehydr8 or similar. I tried a load before but the large size is awesome and comfortably dries nearly 2 cars without water logging.

    I've found the Kent Extra Large MF drying towels suck up water quicker then towels I've bought that are much thicker, high GSMs.

    On a dark car, in the summer, in a very hard water area, they are invaluable.

    If you take the end off the hose to sheet rinse the car this leaves much less water to mop up

    I have 2 Klin Korea Large Duo, one dark blue and a red one. They are a brilliant drying towel, extremely absorbent and have lasted me ages, but you have to be very careful, as with all drying towels, how you clean them. There are plenty of expensive dedicated microfibre cleaning products available from the Detailing suppliers but I find the Non Bio Liquid detergent (blue measuring cap) from Aldi does a great job. It's also important that you don't use any fabric conditioner in the wash process. I also only wash my drying towels on their own and not with any other microfibre towels/cloths. They are also allowed to dry naturally and just finished off for a few minutes on a cool tumble dryer cycle to retain their softness. My Klin Korea towels were purchased from Andy at Clean Your Ride but I believe he has now started to sell his own branded towels.
