+1 I've been using this for 4-5 years now and it's still looks like new. I can dry the whole car with a single towel.

This is the best towel I've used for years.

I wouldn't use one, I feel like they scratch the car. Better with some sort of blower.

Another vote here for the Woolly Mammoth. Had it years. Also got a Mequiars towel and also the Adams Polishes one, keep going back to the mammoth though.

My advice is not to buy a brightly coloured one. I bought two yellow ones and loads of small insects were attracted to them and died. Now they are full of insect carcasses.

Big yellow gets my vote.

Wooly mammoth is good, but big yellow seems to absorb more moisture and lock it away more effectively

Big yellow 100%

Ive got a wooly mammoth and Monster large towels. Plus a dodo juice large towel, and all don't compare to the big yellow. When it's wet it still dries perfectly, unlike smearing round the car with the others.

My wooly mammoth sits in the boot as a floor matt now

Plus you don't get bits all over the car either!
