This works for me:
Brush them with a cat brush. The fine wire bristles wil separate some of the micro fibers and fluff them out, enlarging the drying fiber area, and increasing absorption.

Funnily enough I did buy one of these the other day and tried it on the now working drying towel. I did make a huge difference to the feel/plushness of the towel (I don't have a tumble dryer) but it did lint a bit afterwards so need to give it another quick wash.

Big fat fail for the Silverback drying towels. Tortured them the same as the other towel but tried them out today and while the feel better (less 'slimy' if that makes sense), they still just push the water about. Mind you will make a nice final buff towel.

wash with this

Give the a very light tumble dry then comb them with a nail brush which will remove any stuck debris and they will be as good as new

I still have some towels 4 years old and they are just fine

Thanks, I’ll give this a try when my current microfibre wash has run out. I’ve spent loads of time using different detergents and heat combos to try and bring the Silverback XL’s back to life, - more for my own curiosity and maybe help someone in the future, but alas I’ve given up and bought some other towels. I’ve decided not to use potent sealants like reload as a drying aid (it was cut 1:1) and just pat dry the car from now on. Both our cars are now wearing a coat of PNS so after sheeting the water off it doesn’t really leave much to dry.
