I use microfiber towels from Harbor Freight, no lint from them and they work great.
As far as products go I use Meguires and Mothers. My wife works at an auto body shop and she says that's all the guys in the shop use to detail the cars and to avoid ever using anything made by Armor-All.

|Insaniac||I use a cheap microfiber towel and 303 Aerospace protectant on pretty much my entire interior. It leaves a clean-looking, non-greasy matte finish on every surface as well as provides SPF & UV protection to keep plastics and rubber from aging/fading/cracking.|

Meguiers seems to be one of the better off the shelf brands. Autoglym is better imo, but you pay for it.
I'm having good luck with Chemical Guys products but I have to get them shipped to me. I suggest using microfiber on everything to reduce scratch risks. I clean interior plastics with water and a bit of rubbing alcohol. Cleans the dust and whatnot. Sometimes I'll use a special interior cleaner and protectant on the plastic because the UV will overtime hurt the finish on the plastic.

For the interior I use a microfiber cloth with a really weak solution of dish soap and then I go over it with a damp microfiber cloth. After that dries I use a 50/50 solution of water & Meguiars interior detailer spray. Keeps the plastic looking black without it looking greasy. The rest of the interior is painted plastic so I just wipe it with a damp cloth.
On the exterior I use a combination of Meguiar's products and Adam's polishes.

I use mostly meguiars products for cleaning. I apply armor all with a small sponge so there is no lint left afterwards.

For towels I prefer these when it comes to my bikes and focus.
No lint and always soft enough for any surface.
For actual waxs and cleaners im really happy with the turtle wax ICE products.

-Swiffers for interior dusting
-Damp cloth for anything else, no chemicals at the moment for cleaning and try not to use anything that will make the doors or trim greasy (Armor All).
I alway's used Meguiars products, but just tried Adam's, great quality products but more expensive. Their wheel cleaner works excellent and I sealed my wheels afterwards with the Quick Sealant. Was going to try a few other recommended brands as well, but Adam's had a good sale and the bottle of wheel cleaner is 32oz which will last a while. I may try their wax down the road.
The Quick Sealant is nice, because it won't stain other surfaces that you spray it near, mainly bought it for my wheels but it's nice for other parts of the car, front fascia, hood and etc where bugs tend to land.
-Meguiars Shampoo and Wax
-Adam's Deep Wheel Cleaner
-Adam's Quick Sealant
-Adam's Microfiber Towels (no lint)

|Krizayjm||I tend to always buy Meguiars. Soap, wax, wheel cleaner, interior products. As for towels I just use the microfiber from autozone and after im finished run a duster over all the interior surfaces for the left behind dust/lint from the rags. Seems to work well for me|
