    I have a Kombi as well. That and my Kubota are two of my favorite "tools"! That blower kicks *ss for a variety of uses.

    Do you guys (and gals) was the Rag Co. towels before using them? They just arrived and look good--although the waffle pattern towels look a bit strange.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    I use an Air Force Master Blaster. I normally only have to use one rag to catch any drops after using it. And the rags
    I use are these from the Rag Company. My wife likes them so much for use around the house I gave half to her.

    I personally don't wash any of mine before I use them. The Rag Company suggest that you do, however, I haven't had any issues. This is an old thread so my information has changed since I last posted in it. The waffle weave towels may look different to you but believe me, they are the ones to have and use. I swear by them. Have you watched my Rag Company video?

    After watching your great video MONTHS ago at least, I bought a ton of the blue towels and love them but don't remember you signing off on the waffle weave at that time?

    Yep, I distinctly talk about both the waffle weave and the edgeless blue towels together. I don't know how you could have missed it.

    With the edgeless blue towels from the Rag company I am now getting tons of shiny specs in the paint and also when using them on glass. No hard wiping either and using a top rated detail spray too. Even when new or after washing with just Woolite and no detergent or softner. New ones are doing the same thing for some reason and on my black paint I have to use a polish to remove the shiny spec marks. ???

    Can't recommend anything but I can say that I bot the most expensive, soft white bath towells they had at some high end department store and they were a complete disasterthey covered the car with white lint! (something I have NEVER seen happen with a cotton towel over the 45 years I've been towelling off cars) I think the towels were a cut pile - I think maybe if you use towels they have to have the loops.
