Where do you guys buy your MF towels?

Im usually Detailedimage's loyal customer but i have been searching for a site with large quantities of quality MF's towels sold in packages instead of me purchasing multiple towels individually. Has anyone tried microfibertech.com?
forgot to mention, im looking for general use MF towels, Quick detailing, wiping off bird crap, polishing cloths, etc. Waffle weaves i think no one beats DI's quality.

any suggestions?

ive read bad things about the CG "chubby" microfiber on autopia. Supposidly they are thinner than the Vroom microfiber towels you can buy at target. Pakshak is the best but most expensive

Pakshak is where I got all mine. But I was thinking about checking the ones from Detailed Image, CG or seeing if Sam's Club has any.

wow, i actually use the VROOM towels for my upholstery/engine bay. They are almost thin like paper towel so these "chubby" towels must be like looseleaf. Im glad i stayed away from these when i recently purchased some stuff from the CGs website.

You can't go wrong with Ranney. He only sells the good stuff and is a very knowledgeable guy too when it comes to detailing.

Get a couple of his large WW drying towels, they're the SHIT (trust me).

They have different intended uses. Read the descriptions for each of them and it tells you what they're meant for.

Restoration Hardware is having their cleaning sale. I picked up a couple of boxes of MF sponges, 4 pack for 4 bucks. Not bad at all.
