    Something that doesn't give up fluff as you use it.

    I would suggest using a micro fibre cloth.

    smooth linen or cotton are lint-free. A cotton bud for instance, isn't. I agree with skipkoo that microfibre is best for most uses.
    Drunk people, children and leggings always tell the truth.

    Chamois is the correct spelling though Shammy is widely used, especially in the motor trade where they are used for car cleaning.

    It was originally made from leather from the Chamois goat though other leathers are now used.

    I bought an synthetic “Shammy” for £1 in a pound shop and very good it is too.

    Real Chamois cloths start at about £5 upwards.
