it's time to replace a few items in my detail cabinet.

so it seems that the preferred wash mits (in order) are:

1) microfiber
2) sheepskin (good, available at Target & on-line but don't last)
3) chenille (available at Target & on-line )
4) synthetic (available almost anywhere)

can anyone vouch for this? what are you using?

I've been fairly satisfied using The Absorber but am looking to retire it to wiping down the interior and using something new for drying the paint. I already sheet the majority of the water off the car using a hose with low pressure and no nozzle. I won't go to a leaf blower :eek: but am seeking a new way to get the remaining water off of the car.

I'll pass on the California Waterblade.

the P21S drying towell seems to be a very popular choice.

what are you using and how do you like it?

3 wash mitts:
1 Chenille less than 2 months old (or 10 washes) for the finish above the rockers.
1 older Chenille for the bumpers, then rockers last.
1 Sheep skin for the wheels, inside wheel wells.

Californicate Water blade for 75% of the standing water left, then...
1 Synthetic Chamois (Griots) for the finish above the rockers, pick up any water not wiped off by the water blade.
1 Synthetic Chamois for the bumpers, then rockers last.

Chamois cleaner used every couple months to keep them clean.
