    Yup. Use white vinegar at the start of the rinse cycle. A 1/4 of a cup should be plenty for a medium size load...

    And, you can put it in one of those Downey Balls so you don't have to wait around for the rinse cycle

    Same towels I use and you probably won't find a softer towel anywhere else. It was pointed out to me last night though, that these are cotton/microfiber towels though, so in essence you are using microfiber on your car.

    Perhaps, but it's not that store bought Microfiber towel. Those, I won't use on my finish. I have a bunch of those, I use to keep my 16x8s having that 'high-polished' shine.

    Those are the towels Zaino recommended its users to use to remove their products

    I'm surprised you guys haven't gotten any of the Zaino new "microfiber" towels yet
    They come Zaino priced at 3 for $24.98
    Zaino Blonde Borderfree Towel

    They seem to be nice towels based on what I hear from Zaino fans, but then again...
    .
    I have tried some nice towels myself. The blue ones from Griots and the blue one from Detailers Paradise and the blue one from Adams are the best ones I've ever used

    But then again, here are some testimonials from a Zaino fan(s) :
    I have underlined some of the testimonials I feel deserve a second read

    I have had a chance to use these Zaino towels now every day for over a week and I can say that I am definitely getting superior results when applying/removing Z6 & Z8. Also, the physical size is fine now that I have actually been "using" them - a larger size is not as necessary as I first anticipated. What I have noticed compared to my other MF towels:

    (1) Usually one pass with the towel removes the product(s) without streaking as opposed to multiple passes.

    (2) I am not getting any VISIBLE "fibers" left on the surface.

    Very happy with these towels!
    This quote below is from agentf1. When this guy dies, he'll ask to be buried in a casket made out of Zaino bottles...
    I have been using these microfibers for a while and love them. The thing I like the best about them is dirt does not stick to them, a quick shake or wash and any dirt comes right out. Most microfibers trap any dirt in the nap and it is impossible to get it out even after a wash. I especially hate using microfibers in the fall when the leaves are on the ground. If you drop it you might as well throw it away because the little leave particles NEVER come out.
    Not these new Zaino towels, they work great and do not trap dirt and are also very soft.
    I am just a "user", not a vendor - with a black 2001 C5.

    I switched to Zaino products several years ago.

    I own just about every high-dollar micro-fiber towel I could find - over 100 in all - from various vendors - white, orange, grey purple, blue, green - you name it. Most of these micro-fibers are great compared to what was available even a few years ago and with a couple exceptions I would have to rate most of them as "excellent".

    However, after receiving my new Zaino towels a couple weeks ago, they don't really fall in the same "class" as my previous micro-fibers. They are very unique and so far my results have been noticeably superior using these new towels in combination with Z6 or Z8. These are what I would maybe classify as a "finishing" towel for lack of a better term. With my other towels, if I picked up dust after a few passes, I would just keep folding them over exposing a clean side, but with these Zaino towels, I feel guilty even exposing them to dust!

    As you can see, we all wish Zaino went into Cancer research. Come up with a medicine, call it Zaino Cancer Cure, and most likely will cure cancer. Trust me on this one, fellows!

    Ok, on a serious note. Here's the link for the new Zaino MF Towels.

    I find this funny because I remember when all Zainonistas would only use cotton (DFTowels? )

    I'm just kiddin!

    I have seen those towels on Zaino's site but had not given a lot of thought to getting them. When I do another Zaino order later in the summer I will probably get some. Interesting comments you posted

    No one knows it yet, but Zaino is the cure for Aids, true story. I saw it in my dreams It potentially is the solution to world peace as well.
