I personally wouldnt, the cloths are 40x40 and not very deep pile, they are more of a multi-purpose cloth for cleaning and buffing. Get a dedicated drying towel for drying, i use the 'Liquid Elements Silverback XL drying towel'.

For run of the mill microfibres, you can't go wrong with the amazon basics pack http://amzn.to/2E44y5j or grab one of the value packs in Costco. For drying the car though, as already mentioned they aren't really thick or large enough. The 24+3 pack has 3 of the ultra thick larger towels for a cheap price http://amzn.to/2sdhwbl

The amazon basics are ok for dirty jobs like door shuts or wheels. I bought a pile of them when on offer and paid about 30p each. That is about what they are worth and definitely not worth any more.

Try paragon microfiber for better quality general purpose cheap cloths.

On aliexpress you can get pretty decent edgeless 380gsm cloths for £1.46 delivered free from China and these are pretty good (certainly great for paint).

Or the Costco Kirkland are good value

The Kirkland ones are fine mate the only reason some people are a bit iffy with them is because a youtuber (a respected one mind) said he does not like them and sheep follow.
I purchased a pack of 36 and they have been great for everything, the only exception is i would not dry a car with them
