Detail sprays:
I like FK 425, Sonax BSD, D156, Adam's, Optimum

Drying towels:
MFM dry me crazy
Dooka Uber drying
TRC dry me a river

I'm having a lot of fun playing around with Sonax BSD, mixing it with other detailers. Only thing is it's bad to let the product soak in the towel too long, rendering it damn near useless; repelling liquid like a duck's feather. Very difficult to get the towel back to the same level of absorption again once dried in.

Dry Me Crazy is nice. I have used their Summit 800 as a wash media for rinseless and it worked quite well.

I agree with the OP, in that how we care for, and treat our Towels, will make a big difference with any linting issues.

I ONLY wash Micro Fiber Towels with Micro Fiber Towels. And I only wash the high Quality ones with my other other high quality ones.

The reason for only using the high quality ones together is, because I have a bunch of general purpose MF's from Advance Auto, Auto Zone, and Walmart. If I wipe my glass down with some of these cheaper ones, I can see lint on the window. So I wash these apart from my good ones.

I have been using 3D Towel Kleen, and it has pleased me very much with leaving no residue behind, and leaving my towels feeling soft afterwards. It's cleaning has done as well as anything else I have used.

While your intentios might be good your thread has been REPORTED twice over the weekend as this forum is for products sold on the AG store not everyone elese's products on the face of the earth.

So have some forum netiquette and think about what you post before you post it. The AutogeekOnline.net dicussion forum is not conduit for you or anyone else to promote any product you like and promote can also mean spamming our forum with other people's videos.

Here's the forum rules, please read them and abide by them. Note the one I color coded red.

Thank you in advance.

Forum Rules (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/introduce-yourself/24039-forum-rules.html)

The purpose of Autogeekonline.com is for detailing discussion, providing a place for likeminded auto "Geeks" to share knowledge and partake in fellowship.

1. The AutogeekOnline discussion forum is exclusively sponsored by Autogeek.com. Product discussion should be limited to products that are available from Autogeek.com and PBMA's family of websites.

Links, videos or recommendations to competing products and companies that are not available through Autogeek.com will be moved to the Moderators forum and offenders will be warned or simply placed into the SELF-BANNED catogary of member groups on this forum.

Repeated linking and recommendations of products not available through Autogeek.com may result in a permanent ban. Moderators have the right to edit any posts that contain links, recommendations or other information pertaining to competing companies that are not associated with Autogeek.com.

2. No arguing with Moderators or Administrators.

3. You are welcome to disagree but you must be polite.

4. No bashing any company or their products. No bashing other people. If you can't say anything nice about someone, then don't say anything at all, this also includes talking to others in a demeaning manner.

REMEMBER this forum is here for those that are new to detailing and those that have been doing this for years. We expect that you treat everyone with respect no matter what their level of detailing is. We all had to start somewhere.

5. Forum Nicknames and Avatars must be family friendly, they cannot even hint towards anything raunchy, sleazy, sexual or inappropriate. When in doubt we will err on the side of caution and ask you to choose a different Avatar or Nickname.

6. E-mail addresses cannot be used as a forum nickname.

7. If any thread gets off topic it will be at the discretion of the moderator to close and/or move it to moderators corner.

8. Keep language "G Rated", this includes insinuations. If you wouldn't say it in front of your grandparents, your parents or your children, then you shouldn't probably be posting to the AutogeekOnline forum.

9. Self-promoting clickable links are not allowed in your posts. Detailers can put a link to their company in their signature, as long as they are not selling anything but their services.

10. Moderators have the right to move any thread that does not follow within the AGO rules to moderators corner.

11. Only one account per member! The only conceivable reason for multiple accounts would be for fraudulent activity. You will be banned for this action immediately.

12. Continuously breaking the rules to disrupt the online community will result in you being banned from the forum.

13. No Commercial sales, personal sales or samples from competing companies. One post trying to promote and you will have banned yourself permanently. This is a private forum not an open forum. No links to outside companies for sales either.

14. All messages posted to AutogeekOnline become the property of Autogeek.net. and may not be deleted without first obtaining permission.

15. No personal attacks toward members or non-members will be tolerated.

We stand behind our Moderators, if our Moderators think you're causing problems for the online community they are empowered to take whatever action necessary to correct the problem.

Rule Infraction Enforcement
Everyone makes mistakes however; pushing the house rules to the limit will not be tolerated. Therefore, chronic and severe violators of AGO rules will be warned, put on a Queue (time-out), or completely banned based on the severity of the violation. We will apply rule enforcement as follows:

1st time offense - Warning: Minor rule infractions, you will be sent a PM or email by a moderator pointing out the infraction. There will be no action at this time outside of the warning.

2nd time offense - Queue: This will give you a 24 hour up to a two week forum break. This will occur after you have been warned previously or if you are involved with bashing of other members, being a hot-head, spamming, bad language, posting inappropriate materials.

3rd and last time - Banned: You will have effectively banned yourself if you are a repeat offender or if you are involved with any of the following....blatant spamming/selling, attacking forum moderators, pornography, racial/sexist/threatening posts, trolling, fraud, liable/slander, multiple accounts, shills.
