I tend to go through a lot of them. This is what I use and I think they're good quality.

A short nap towel is ideal for wax/sealant removal. The best that I came across is Microfiber madness yellow fellow. 333 gsm, edge-less, tag-less, and lint free.

For sensitive paint, microfiber madness crazy pile. 500 gsm, edge-less, tag-less, and lint free.

These towels cost more but they are worth it.

By far the best bang for the buck and they offer free shipping on Fridays with no minimum (all other days require a minimum for free shipping). Very fast delivery as well. Heard about them through Junkman's videos and they do not disappoint.

I actually just bought these. Haven't tried them out yet but I've been fighting towel lint ever since I washed my dirty microfibers. Hopefully these will reduce dust/lint as I'm using them as a final wipe down towel.

I've always used griots towels with good results.

I've had the best results from Meguiar's Supreme Shine towels and more recently also started using the DI 24x16 2 sided towels. I wrote a review for both on the site for what it's worth, but both are good towels that last a while and work very well.
