Every rag I had in the house was leaving fine scratches in my wheels so I took a couple cotton balls and Mothers Billet polish and the cotton balls left no scratches cleaned up the water spots and the scratches my fine towels left behind....... Hope it helps someone...

I have found the using the inside of a sweat shirt is good. Better than the Microfiber.

In the last 40+ years I've tried everything and still find the microfiber the best. The only drawback is don't keep them around where tiny metal shavings etc might be as they pick up everything.

towels

I use Micros for everything. I have them in zip lock baggies. I tell my kid if you drop one just let me know it goes in the used pile. I actually get the ones that are thin there a little $$$ but do a great job on polishing. If you buy them make sure you wash them first with a good soap in the washer

Mothers Power Ball is great but for the hand done things you need to use microfiber towels or applicators. I do detailing for a living and this is all I use to wash, dry, wipe down and polish high end vehicles and custom motorcycles.

I guess I'm the lucky one since, as far as I can see,microfiber towels are made from the same fiber content as fleece which Tim mentioned he uses(Inside of a sweatshirt). Since I'm in the clothing industry they throw this stuff away by the barrel full when they are cutting the pieces to sew for large amounts of sweatshirts/Hoodies. I usually ask the cutter if I can take some and he gives me as much as I can fit in my car.

Why would you want to wash the new micofiber cloths, and with soap? I just tear the labels off and use them. I think washing is a waste of time and possible contamination. IMO

Who said they wash new microfiber towels before using them? Also even if they did as long as they dont mix their polishing towels with their glass towels they will be fine. A few drops of vinegar in the towel wash mix helps break up any wax or polish on them as well...
