Question Washing: Micro Fiber or 100% Cotton Chenille

I've never really been into car care...my last truck I hadn't washed in over 6 years (other than the times I went for oil changes..they washed it for me )

What do you recommend I use to wash my new WRX? I did searches but didn't come up with much. Cotton or Micro fiber? Any other suggestions? I know Micro fiber is good for waxing/polishing (from the posts I've read) that is why I figured it would also be good to wash?

Thanks!

Check out this site:
www.properautocare.com
Under information.

They have a bunch of info/tips you can read and decide for yourself. I dry my car with an "Absorber" towel, and I use Microfiber towels when I wax/detail it, or if I use that quick spray cleaner to get dust/grime off the car.

Here you go:

Washing:

Drying:

E-mail them too. They use/try just about everything, and are very honest in my opinion. I never feel like I'm getting a sales pitch.
