Best current drying towel ??

Itís been a while since I bought a nice decent quality drying towel. I bought a few of the generic blue with red edges ones but they were pretty awful.

So whatís the best premium quality ones now ?

Thanks,

This is the best I've used by quite a long way https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/pures...x-drying-towel It's got a bigger brother but I've found this more than good enough .

I quite like my Chemical guys Monster Wooley or whatever it's called. It's quite large so ideal for larger vehicles

It might be worth searching the forum on drying towels as this subject comes up quite a lot. It's impossible to say what's the "best" as everyone's opinion differs based on their own personal criteria.

I use this one and I think it's fantastic - https://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/monst...er-edgeless-xl

Have a watch of these videos too if you get a spare 5 mins.

As above, there are many definitions of "best"

There are now essentially two types - the standard extra plush towel, which is generally two towels stitched together. The latest of these have zero border/borderless like the Monster XL. If you are buying one of these, there is no reason to get a bordered one any more.

The other type is 'twisted loop' - they started as single sided, and now are almost always double sided (again, two towels back to back, sewn together). Initially made famous by Klin Korea, but everyone has their own version now. These generally are quite grabby on paint, but if you're using the pat dry, or drag method of drying, you won't really notice a difference.

Size and shape comes into it - if you've been using your 24x36 towels for a long time - moving to a 24x32 may not sound like much, but you'll notice the difference. If you've always wanted something a bit smaller (but not half the size), they may suit you.

I have the twisted towels, but always go back to my 24x36 ultra plush - I can get 2 cars of one towel, whereas I seem to only get about 1.5 cars out of my twisted. But if I'm only doing one car that day, then either is fine.

I'll have to check out that Monster XL, but I also want to try the Klin Evo, which is supposed to not drag as much as the normal towel. I wouldn't entertain buying anything with a border now, regardless of how soft it's supposed to be.

Whatís best ?

The one thatís easy to use ?
The one that holds more water ?
The one that XL ?
The one that costs 4 times as much as the others ?

Everybodyís different and youíll get lots of different opinions, itís what they like and what works for them

Personally, I donít like the very large, very plush towels that hold a lot of water as I find them too heavy, also if Iím using a drying aid I find them a pain.

What do you have - what do you want to improve on - is it size, thickness, water retention etc.

Half the fun (and heartache) is finding what you like, trying other products and seeing if you like them...

Enjoy

I use the woo woo drying towel. It's just big enough for the car but I dont like those huge bath like towels that your scared drag across the ground because my 6ft 6 frame still isn't tall enough for them. I use a cheap rac drying towel for my wheels that costs £2 at BnM. Wouldn't use it on my paint.
