  • I know that lately, we've gained a lot of new members which is awesome and a lot of those new members are coming from other forums that may use vBulletin and their Private Message (PM) system. Here, we use the XenForo forum software which is (IMHO) much better than vBulletin. The "Conversation" system here is the same as the PM system on vBulletin. So if you want to PM another member, just click their username in a post, and click on "Start Conversation". To see all of your PMs, click on your profile and go to Inbox. Hope this helps.

Caring for your towels is equally as important the process itself. Obviously the softer the towel the better it is for your paint...but there has to be some balance thrown in there too. If it's too soft it may leave lint or not be as absorbent.

Also, rotate your towels. If you think it's going to be bad for your paint then use it in some other capacity.

Store your towels in a plastic bag or in a covered box of some sort.

When you wash:
  • Make sure not to use bleach.
  • Use a liquid.
When you dry:
  • Don't include a dryer sheet. They can make the towel softer but also load up the fibers so that they are less absorbant.
  • Don't dry them all the way. Get them to where they are 90% dry then air dry them the rest of the way. (I have a setting on my dryer that does this for me..... so you may want to experiment with yours.)

Good advice.

Why the "no bleach" comment though?
I sometimes use bleach on my white towels to make them whiter and clean out the black stuff that gets on them.
