If you use a wipe or light drag method, your drying towel drys better when it's slightly damp. In an ideal world rinse with Di water then blow dry. If you notice any swirls or marring you then know it's your wash routine causing it.


Thanks again

What is Di water?

- the Forensic Detailing channel is brilliant, his delivery and knowledge of products is excellent. I subscribe to his channel on YouTube, well worth watching his uploads.

Thanks guys.

I was worried that by wiping I would be causing unwanted markings to the paint.

I’ve always used a clean microfibre whether it be waffle weave or a drying towel.

I’ll use a drying aid at times to also help add be a lubricant.

Larry from Ammo NYC has recently posted a maintenance wash video where he drys the car (with his own brand of drying aid) using a drag and roll technique that is quite interesting. The basic premise is that if you just drag the towel over the surface then any particles left are picked up by the towel on the leading edge, causing a potentially damaging build up. He demonstrates how he lifts and rolls back the towel as he drags it, meaning that there is always a clean part of the towel on the surface as it is moved along. Pretty cool stuff.

Save the time of drying and potential damage by getting a DI resin vessel. I don't think I could go back to drying towels

Apply Rinse Aid, Hose of, then use petrol leaf blower.

Also gets the water out from behind number plate, wing mirrors and window surrounds.

Perfect.
