    Got my ONR products in yesterday and was gonna head to Pep Boys and grab some microfiber towels. Are they all the same or should I go for a certain brand?

    Try to stick with good Korean microfibers on paint, and leave the Chinese ones for doorjambs, wheels, etc.

    But anything you find at Pepboys is usually Chinese.

    Target orange Vroom towels. I use an orange one to wipe the ONR on, then the waffle weave kitchen microfibers from wal-mart to dry. works well for me. I use 2 towels, one towel per side of the car.

    I use the orange Target Vroom towels too. The grey ones are really good too.

    I'll have to check those Vroom towels out. It's been awhile since I've purchased something from a local store since I get everything for free.

    I buy the bulk pack from Costco. They seem to hold up better than the target MF towels.

    Yep, those are the ones. They have held their shape even after 3 years. My Target ones get all curled on the ends and won't lie flat. Dunno why.

    I've got some of the blue and green ones. The green seem a bit plusher than the blue. :dunno:

    Costco 24 pack ones are the best I have used so far. Sure you could use green for one use and orange for another and yellow for another but that is just nuts. Stick to the yellow 24 pack from Costco. I just use terry!
