    I have always used one of thoes synthetic chamois(sp?) you can get at the car section in walmart. Yea they worked alright and I was happy with them at the time, then my dad got a microfiber towel from NY Tech to dry off our cars. I don't usually endorse products because if someone gets it and hates it then they blame it on the person who suggested it, but I have to say this towel is by far the best thing I have ever used to dry off a car. I dont know if anyone else has used them, but I recomend getting out. They are only $9 from NY Tech and worth every penny. Not sure if the cheap ones at walmart are any good, but I love the one I have. www.nytechsupply.com

    I just use a bath towel, or old t shirt, or whatevers laying around.. Work just fine for me. Use old t shirts, boxers, sox's, ect to wax or polish the car too.

    On the rare occasion mine gets dirty enough to warrant a wash I use the abosrber to dry it off. BTW I tried the mr clean deal ona few cars and it works great the 1st two uses then you need a new filter.

    Damn novices! :rlaugh:
    $29.95 200MPH LEAF BLOWER @ HD or Lowes and it doesn't have to be 200. (I use a 230 mph 2 speeds)

    No water spots, no swirl marks, no drips when you drive off, no drips out of the mirrors, no water in the lug nut holes, door jams, etc..... :nice:
    Try it and I guarantee you'll love it. Been using one for about 8 years now and never dry my car by hand wiping again and nothing beats it. :D

    If you decide to get one get an electric one not a gas powered one. Cordless don't keep enough juice consistently.

    seriously, some of the best detailers use leafblowers to eliminate micro scratches and swirls. best way to do it, you dont touch the car, so no harm done.. also a T-blade to wipe away water is good. helps cut down time.
