When I do this exact process, not often I do though, I just do a final rinse with de-ironised water and leave it to dry naturally

This above but TBH if I couldn't wash it then I definitely wouldn't be touching it after a pre wash at all regardless how dirty the car is.

Yes your car will probably need correcting soon as you say, but why inflict more damage to your paint doesn't make sense.

If you can get hold of deionised or distilled water for the rinse (or if you are lucky enough to be in a ludicrously soft water area) you could probably escape drying it at all.

Carplan-trade-hi-wax-rinse-5l

I live in a soft water area and I do this if its not good weather to do a 3BM wash or if I don't have time.

I rinse with Carplan-trade-hi-wax-rinse-5l. 250 ml in a watering can and pour over the car once ive rinsed of the foam with the PW.

The water just sheets of leaving a few drops of water if you get it right.

But nothing will come close to a meticulous 3 bucket wash
