The only "trick" with black paint, is to not mark up the surface. If you use harsh towels to dry the car, you'll end up with swirls galore. After the years take their toll on the clearcoat, I generally smooth the surface back down with a buffer and fine machine glaze, then go back with a good hand glaze, wash the car like crazy, and then follow up with the full Zaino polish system. Looks brand new

It depends.. If they're 100% USA cotton, and you don't wash them with a fabric softener, then go ahead and use 'em. Watch out for the rolled and sewn edges though, they scratch.
