Difference between MF drying and polishing towels

Apart from the size is there any difference between polishing and drying microfibres towels? I use my towels for both, is this wrong?

thank you

yes one is for drying the car and will absorb water/detail sprays as its usually fluffier and the other usually has more bite and is for removing wax/polish

As above, unless funds are very tight just get the correct ones for the job.

If you go to YouTube and type in ammo car cleaning (American) and look through his tons of videos you'll find one about microfibres towels and how to look after them ect ect.

I can't quite remember without looking at it again but it's about the materials it's made from. Usually it's a 70/30 which is what you mainly find in a drying towel.

I will be corrected on this but it's down to what materials is used and the ratio used at.

Hope this kinda helps.
