questionswhat is the best microfiber towel for drying your…


I bought a synthetic chamois (similar to a ShamWow) in 1999 at AutoZone and it is still in perfect condition. It is the best thing I've ever seen for drying my car. Sorry, I don't know the brand name but it came rolled in a plastic tube that you use to store it.


For drying? I use an absorber, you can get them at Wal-Mart locally, not microfiber, but works great.

I would never let a sham wow touch my paint, but I do use them in cleaning the wheels.


I use this one,

they are nice enough to use as bath towels in your home. The site has some of the best products out there. And they have different towels for different needs. Even throw away ones.

I say no to the Scam Wow's and imitation sham's because they trap dirt and debris which can scratch the paint. And if you do not have a custom drying towel use only 100% cotton and do a burn test to make sure there is no nylon thread used because that will scratch as well. Burn test is, take a lighter to a thread if it curls up in a hard little ball it is not 100% cotton, cotton will just burn up.

Good luck with your search, hope this helps.


@joscott87: Yes, this is what I have and I love it. (The Absorber) Works great and lasts forever.


This is what you really need:

The professionals don't recommend touching your car to dry it!


the one I used as a bathtowel til it got all raggedy.
