Of course if you have a car that doesn't show swirls as easily as black, you might not realize how crappy they really are. Those of us that drive darker cars really have to worry about what touches them.

    I use some I get from PepBoys. Can't remember the brand, but I think one costs $9, at least, by itself.
    I have a black car and have used the Sam's club brand for over a year now with no problems. My suggestion is to not use the towels too long and never throw them in the dryer.

    Hey yyun, You can dry them. Just don't use fabric softner or drier sheets while drying them.

    I wash mine with Tide.
    Then run another cycle with some vinegar (no detergents).

    Hang dry.

    Ya I've heard of using the vinegar before. I added some to the rinse cycle once but didn't notice any difference tho.

    I use woolite too and wash with a double rinse cycle. I put mine in the dryer as well. I have been using the same ten micro's for about a year and a half-they still look almost new.

    I try to buy them from autogeek when they have the "buy one get one free" deals.

    I heard that putting vinigar in the wash with black shirts/clothes will keep them from fading as fast as they usually do.

    I would really be careful if you have a darker car, because scratches and swirls will show up if you use crap towels. I have used towels from pep boys 3 pack for like 9.99 and they have been great. I also have a silver car, but i dont like scratches of any kind!!!!!

    With any towel (good or bad) Don't rub as though you're getting your last piece of ass.........Easy does it......
