waffle weave drying towels

anyone know of any good stores (southern, california 909) that sell them, rather than having to order them over the net/phone. i already know alot of places that i can order them from, but would prefer to buy it in person if possible. i've tried every place possible, and nobody carries them.

Net is your best and safest bet I would say. A lot of the microfiber and towels I see in the stores are crap. I got mine from www.poorboysworld.com and love them. I bought three.

I cant get "Sonus Der Wunder ultimate drying towel" anyware except Autopia If you ordered it today instead of asking where you could buy them a local store, the mailman would be delivering them tomorrow morning.
Autopia is in CA. Heck I get my orders in three days.... I live in Massachusetts!!

i've had bad luck with ordering over the net (credit card), maybe i'll send a check or money order.

i wet the absorber & wring it out before i use it, and it works great. no problems at all. i just bought a viking microfiber drying towel (light blue) that has two different sides (one plush & the other fine) and works great as well. it has an advantage over the waffle weave, because it has two different sides for two different purposes. can't go wrong with both! http://www.autopia-carcare.com/vk-988400.html
