An old towel, the one time I actually dried my truck off.

I also use a microfiber towel for spray on wipe off activities, or an old towel to dry after a wash and squeegee treatment.

For drying I use a knock off of that Sham Wow you used to see advertised on TV. Biggest reason is a guy at my local flea market sells a huge one (about 28" x 20") for like $2 bucks a piece or 3 for $5. They really do soak up a LOT of water. Matter of fact, I use them all over the house and throw them in the laundry when dirty. Cut in quarters they are perfect dish cloths.

For after detailing, always a micro fiber towel...

Microfiber wash mitt with Meguiar's wash n wax. Blow it off with a leaf blower to get the drippy stuff areas dried out, final dry and buff with clean microfiber.

If it's just lightly dirty, IE few spots here and there I hit it with Meguiar's Quik Detailer and microfiber.

If it just looks a little dull. Meguiar's Quik Wax and microfiber overall one time then another quick buffing with clean microfibers.

The latter two take about 15 20 20 min each simply due to surface area far exceeding that of a car.

Full wash, blow off and buff dry, 30-45 minutes.

I use waffle weave drying towel since it holds more water than a regular towel.
