Same. Those aqua delux towels are the worst drying towel I’ve tried to date. I bought 1 about 3 years ago, it covered my car in lint every time so I sent it back to AF. They sent me another one and that was exactly the same so I gave up on them.

Ive been through quite a few towels from various manufacturers but the only towels I use now are Klin Korea. Duo’s and singles, plus the small wheel towels.

Odd, not a single bit of lint coming from mine pre or post wash.
Perhaps a bad batch or they've improved them since, when did you buy it? I got mine from Halfords about a month ago.

Same here. I have one and don't have any lint issues.

Could also be that some people aren't washing them or using them properly.

I've a variety of microfibre drying towels and waffle weaves, but I am pleased with a recent purchase from Costco.

Just right weight and soft, spot on.

I'm currently using a EZ BFT - been very pleased with this one.

Plus a couple of Halfrauds own brand ones for shuts/wheels and the wife's ****box corsa ;-)

I used to swear by the Gyeon Silkdryers... could easily dry two cars without having to wring out. Over the course of two or three years I've used it less and less instead using my pet dryer.

The Gyeon towel had over time become less absorbant (whether it was the constant washing/drying or perhaps the other half added it to a was with softener in!) it needed replaced and decided to try the new Gauntlet Microfiber Drying Towel from the Rag Company.

Different level. Haven't used the pet dryer since.
