I purchased these cloths a few days ago and followed the instructions on washing them and drying them on low. So far they leave very fine strains of lint behind when i wipe down my car. Its very visible on black paint. They are pretty soft towel however, but the small lint fibers that are left behind ruin the reason for purchasing them. Update: At the moment it is now december 13 2019 and after a few washes they still leave behind very find microfiber strands. I'm not sure if its just this batch of cloth but i would not buy this specific model again. atleast for washing a car in a detailed manor.
