Buffing Techniques

Hey guys.. i just ordered the ultimate zaino kit from their website. I wanted to ask you guys what kinds of buffing rags or towels you guys use to buff the wax off your car. On their website, they say to use "Made in USA 100% cotton" towels. I have used terry cloths in the past.

Just wondering what you guys used for the best results.

Thanks

I detail professionally and there is tons of microfiber/cotten/terry cloth materials out there. I don't like terry cloth and cotten too much because they tend to not work as well as microfiber and doesn't last as long. I also prefer microfiber because it's designed to pick up and trap the wax, not just push it around on the paint. I have to work fast and get great results so I like to invest in high quality microfiber products. Additionally microfiber touches so much of your paint that you don't want to risk scratching the paint with an inferior product. I like these microfibers http://secure.detailedimage.com/Merc...e=Dryingmainly because they work really well and they have held their stregth after numerous washes. Hope this was helpful

I'll try it again http://secure.detailedimage.com/Merc...ry_Code=Drying

If that doesn't work just go to www.DetailedImage.com and click on the microfiber section. You can call the guys there too and they'll help you out.
