    Lint free rags/tissues

    Time to rebuild my fork again. Last time I ended up with fuzzies everywhere. Which lint free rags or tissues do you use and where can you get them?

    If you want something disposable, try Kimwipes:

    I haven't used them on a bike, but we use them at work.

    Last time I did fork work I just used normal disposable shop towels, and didn't notice any fuzzies, or whatever, left behind.

    Maybe I'm just not picky enough.

    I've been using the rolls of blue shop towels that they sell everywhere for over 20 years. Started using them as a diesel mechanic and I still use them today for bikes.
    I've rolled a couple onto a long pair of needle nose pliers to clean out the insides of the fork legs.
    I like turtles
