If you used a regular towel 100% cotton. Would it leave swirl marks on your car after a period of time using that kind of towel. Or is there a different kind of material for it that wont leave those marks..? Any suggestions will help, thanks. Jason :cheers:

Just move in a horizontal line while waxing and buffing. Or get a random orbit polisher. (Porter Cable)

Swirl marks are more often caused by very fine grit left on the car surface. Assuring that the your car is completely clean is most important. Second when applying wax OR buffing, start at top and work down. Once you get near the bottom edge such as wheel well areas, use a new cloth if you need to come back up. This will help keep any dirt from being impregnated into your waxing or buffing cloths. :)

a rotory buffer causes and removes swirils. unless you have particles on a terry towel, it will not harm your paint. buying a 30 dollar orbital buffer though will leave you with more energy and better results.
