Best DRYING cloth for vinyl?


I have been cleaning my LP's w/ my VPI 16.5, and choosing to cloth dry them. I have been satisfied with the Spin-Clean wipes, which are machine washable. I have found after a few washes, they start to shed some some fabric, which does easily dust off. I then put my LP's in a drying rack, which I bought from staples. This wasn't made for LP's, but it's the perfect size, was $14.00, and holds 10 LP's. Any thoughts on a better cloth, or leave well enough alone? The Spin Clean cloths are available for $15 through Acoustic Sounds, as well as some other retailers.

In my experience, the best drying cloth for vinyl is no drying cloth at all. If you wash vinyl with distilled water, you can just let it air dry.
Unreal. Why in the world are you choosing to hand-dry LPs when the VPI 16.5 will do it automatically and leave zero lint? Too much time on one's hands?
I use one from Autozone for buffing treated with anti-static spray.
I agree with Goheelz . Any type of cloth or contact risks
pushing the any residue back into the record . Isn't that
why we use a vacuum ?

**I use either Audio Intelligent #6 one step, or on some, a combo of #6 and distilled water. I dry them VERY gently, while the VPI is spinning. Then of course, they are air dried in the drying rack. **

**Yes- STATIC. One of the few reasons I am running the VPI 16 sans Vacuum. The other is I do it at a time when I can't have the noise of the VPI.**

** This certainly makes sense, but the water is immediately absorbed with the linen/diaper like SC cloth. I'm certainly no guru on the subject, so I will seek out more advice on this. FWIW, I have been very pleased with the results using this process. Cheer -Don
I have a 16.5 as well and I use the Spin Clean cloths with great results. I find the vacuum doesn't always get it completely dry.
I use an eyeglass cleaning cloth every now and then when using my Audio Desk.
