Well its been a good few months now with using the eagle edgless, they are the best microfiber towels that I have ever used for sure.

However, the linting and also the grabbing it does is peeing me off. At first I thought perhaps it was the way I washed them so I took note on what I was doing to share with you guys. Since, out of the box before washing them they appear to be fine, little to no grabbing and also little to no linting ( is that even a word?) But it all changes after washing.

I used Tide ( HE type ) washing machine liquid soap as well as Member Mark Sams club own brand HE type washing machine liquid soap. I wash all my my Eagle Edgless towels soley on their own. Set the temp to warm, hot or even tap cold ( makes no difference ) use no softner although used it once made it worse I think .
Once washed I set them to dry at room temp. Once dried, they feel really soft and deep piled and plush. However if I spray a panel with Meguiares ( I dont clean the whole car like this ) Quik Detailer, it drags like a biatch. If I also use it to buff off wax residue like a sealent from meguires primarily names NXT G2, it drags and leaves small tiny pieces of lint that almost look like clear coat scratches, but are not.

As it stands they work flawless for me out of the box prior the wash, once washed I seem to fubar them up some how.

Trouble-shooting 101 states that if something was working before you made the change, then the problem obviously lies where you made the change. In this case, the change is your washing process.

First off, you should be using some type of "free and clear" type soap. That's the soap with NO anything in it but soap. No scents, dyes, softeners or anything else that could screw up the towel. So there's where I would start. Change the soap you are using. Another thing to do is to MAKE SURE that you are using the correct AMOUNT of soap. It sounds like you are using way to much and the towels are not coming clean. You are probably using towels that are still dirty because they still contain soap and that really screws up the fibers. I outline all of this along with my washing process in this video.
