There's only one problem with a chamios: it's smooth.

Why's that a problem? Well, look at your standard terry cloth towel. See all those dangling threads? Those hold on to the dirt, like a chamios will, but since you're moving the towel in many different directions, they overlap and dirt never sees your paint.

The chamios is what a lot of people use. But it's not the best. If you miss any dirt, even the smallest amount, you'll basically be dragging sandpaper across your paint.

I forgot to mention this in my long 'scpeel': Rinse off the car REALLY good before you start washing. Gets the stuff that's not on there really good off. Keeps your towels cleaner.

Again, this is my take. If you choose against it, that's your opinion. But at least try it. It really does give EXCELENT results.
