Lint-free cloth for staining jobs

Hello,
I'm about to apply a second coat of stain+varnish combo on a little shelf i built out of salvaged slats of pinewood.
Yesterday, I applied a first layer of varnish with a foam-tip brush, and then i tried wiping-off excess varnish with an old kitchen cloth. That was a BAD idea because the varnish had already started to set and had gotten really sticky, and the kitchen cloth released quite an amount of lint which adhered to the freshly-stained wood....
anyway, what kind of lint-free cloths do you pros use for wiping-off excess varnish? anything i can find around the household?
thanks

Home Depot sells rags in their paint section. They come in a box, I forget how much. They work well for me.

Got a significant other? Undershirts are great. Too sticky, little bit of mineral spirits.
Goodwill, St Vinnies, etc. sell t-shirt rags for next to nothing. Some, of course, are imprinted with things you wouldn't want others to see....

Jeff Jewitt suggested Viva paper towels for wiping Sherwin Williams quick dry oil varnish because they're smooth. All I've bought since are Viva.
