Have you ever used one?

You are doing it to a just washed car, there should be no loose debris that can get picked up and scratch the paint.

Towels, microfibers, and traditional chamois are worse at holding onto particulate debris, if that is the concern.

I first saw them at a high-end auto painter, that guy swore by them and I doubt he is a fan of ruining his own work.
Truth. People who use them don't have issues with them

People who have never owned or used one are the people who complain.

I used one all the time on my BLACK Mustang and never had a problem.

They are actually really nice to have if you don't have a driveway or garden hose and have to use the coin operated wash. You can get massive amounts of water off of your car quickly while still in the bay and pull out into the sun to dry the rest.

What other people think of me is none of my business.
