    Default Drying towel recommendations

    I have about £20 to spend. I've been through chamois and I have an AG waffley synthetic thing that was about a tenner but isn't great.

    I've seen ones like the CG big yellow plush looking one and the sonus waffle towel etc but tbh I'd prefer a recommendation rather than buying one, and then the other and then something else.

    Help me out please!

    Chemical Guys do a very good drying towel. One of the best I have come across. It is called Chemical Guys miracle dryer. It costs £13.95 from www.elitecarcare.co.uk

    Thanks for the help guys, but it's definitely a towel I'm after. Used chamois and synthetics before and I'm sure their must be something better. It's a towel in the detailing sticky - suspiciously like a CG one!

    I have everything else from paint cleaner to wax, just need a great drying towel as the performance (synthetics) or the danger (chamois) of the others is disappointing.

    And if the wife doesn't find out the cost in relation to the last set of bath sheets we bought, all the better lol.

    I use one of these too and I have the CG version and all of them came from Autobrite. Give Mark a shout and he will sort you out with what you need matey
