Best cleaning rags?

What type of material makes the best, lint-free cleaning rags? I've cut up a couple of old shirts to make rags from, but they leave a coat of lint (especially on parkerized surfaces) when I'm wiping Break-Free oil onto my guns.

If there is a fabric that works well, I will go to the local Salvation Army store and stock up.

Rick - I usually find T-Shirts do pretty well - but preferably the well worn ones that have been thru the wash a lot!! Best ones I had were old skinny type with a rather obvious weave - very lint free.

Otherwise good cotton stuff like pillow slips or even worn out cotton sheets. Cotton tho does not always seem soft enough or thick enough.

So much depends on initial mix tho as to lint aspect - I think the much washed angle helps most.
