Rinse, AS Aquawax then open hose then Microfibre towels, followed by my screwfix Vac on blow to shift water out of the nooks and crannies (let it blow to nothing for a minute first in case any dust in the pipe - made that mistake once ) then a quick go over those areas with QD and a microfiber cloth

I was using an Autoglym Aqua Dry not so long ago as drying towels I'd previously tried left marring all over my car! I thought I'd give a drying towel one last try. I quite liked the look of the Autofinesse Aqua Deluxe, so I bought one and haven't looked back since! Excellent towel

If I've applied some Wetcoat in the last few washes I'll just rinse and dry with a drying towel.

Usually lay the towel on the paint and drag off. Usually leaves it nice and dry with a quick detailer to follow.

Nothing wrong with them used in the correct way.
Probably better than the old Y fronts I use

I use rainwater from the water butt, no need to dry, except nooks and crannies with Microfiber Madness towel.
