Question What kind of cloth?

Anybody have any suggestions on what type of cloth to use when waxing or cleaning your bike? Mines bike is black and I just cant get all the lint off.

get a california duster for the lint. theyre around $15-20 from pepboys. just run it across the bike after towel drying it, and it removes all the lint and dust.

I'd hope so lol, I use 100% cotton terry cloth towels.

Hello mother leopard, I have your cub, you must protect her but that will be expensive. 10,000 collanuts wraped in brown paper, midnight, behind the box, I'll be the Hyena..You'll see.

Hi rustynut-

Once the finish has been washed, glazed & sealed, and waxed with pure Carnauba the "lint issue" should virtually solve itself. My preferred brand is Mothers for my vehicles. The products are gentle, easy-to-use, and long-lasting.

Hi rustynut-

Whatever soft cloths you choose as applicators, make certain to wash them a few times to ensure there are no contaminants that could scratch the finish.
