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?

I just use a sponge or microfiber towel for washing (with Zaino wash). Then the drying process is the Water Blade followed up by a microfiber towel or The Absorber to get the spots that were missed.

I wash and dry the car in sections starting with the top and finishing with the wheel. My wheels are a friggin *****!!! Nothing but the remainder of my car wash, a sponge, and a wheel brush by OXO to do the wheels.

Just finished doing it a few minutes ago before heading out on the bimmers first road trip. DC -> NYC -> FL -> DC
