These are some great rags to help dry your vehicle. When you first receive these rags they will have tons of loose lint/bits of cloth material. You can wash these before your first use to make sure you get the cleanest wipes when you dry your car. They'll absorb a ton of moisture and you just have to ring them out a few times while fully drying a medium sized car. These rags leave just a bit of water behind as you're drying your car but that evaporates just after a few seconds. This is probably the safest and best way I've ever dried my car. I've officially moved on from my shammy's.
