There is no way to avoid this issue completely but microfiber helps a lot. It is high tech stuff. The material is made of super thin, super soft synthetic fibers. It was first developed in the 1950s but it wasn't until 2007 that Rubbermaid introduced the first microfiber cleaning products in the USA. Microfiber holds up to eight times its weight in water, attracts and contains dust and oils and causes minimal scratches to paint. Just be careful to turn the cloth often to prevent grit that accumulates on the cloth from causing scratches to the surface being cleaned. The cloth can be washed & used over & over.
Almost Everything Autobody gave away hundreds of these cloths at the Washington High School Car Show and the Tri-City Motor Rally at Newpark Mall. They proved so popular that we are planning to give one to customers when they pick-up their cars. People have asked where we get ours--we buy in bulk from Maxim Mart.
