QD why, how, when

Hi, never used a quick detailer before, the car was polished, cleansed and waxed last week, going to give it a wash and dry later, where and how does a QD come into the equation
Thanks

for help when drying , it helps disperse water droplets and leaves a great finish

or just wiping up finger prints etc on a freshly cleaned car

So to aid drying, once rinsed off, what do I do? Spray on and then what? Dry as normal or rinse again then dry

open hose pipe the car so its rinsed clean , mist a panel at a time and pat dry , as you mist it on you will see the water disperse

It can be used as a rinse aid and popular with many, in my case I am not a fan of doing that. No further FT on that.

Once the car is dried off, even better if given a blow with compressed air to get that water that is impossible to get to get rid of places and left to dry. If left it will deposit calcium.
Then QD all you want. It's very therapeutic.

I've used a few, now QD with KC FSE after every wash and it does leave a really good slick surface. Being a minimum weekly routine water spots are a thing of the past. Did this on two cars earlier and looking good.
You will get a million "I use", but whatever you buy will last for several months before you can try another, so crack on as you are and try another later.
In short, QD as often as you like, just make sure surface is clean and use clean MF's to apply and light buff off.

Using a QD as a drying aid, in my opinion, is a waste of good money
Use it after washing and drying off would be my recommendation

Got agree with above. Never used it as a drying aid. Dry the car as normal then give it a coat of qd to top up the protection.

Always use a QD as a drying aid. Koch Chemie FSE works a treat on my black car

My 2p worth, I use my QD after I've dried my car, just gives it that final touch.
