Now hoping on the interstate no one has told me to do, good idea lol. But I'll stick to my drying towel. I think it's called Absorber? I got it at Walmart for like 13 bucks and it holds 50% more water and I'm liking it.

I've been using the Absorber for years, but last year I picked-up one of Griot's Garage's synthentic chamois' and I'll never use anything else; in fact, I just got a new one for my birthday. They're a little on the pricey side (like a lot of Griot's stuff) at $14.99, but the work amazingly.

i use spot free rinse and let it dry on its own. on my f150, being that its black you can see everything so its the best to keep swirls down

I use one of these works pretty good. Usually I have another microfiber towel to go back over the windows and any spots.

When I'm in a hurry (which is most of the time) I use one of these:



The rest of the time, I just let it air dry & hope the birds don't poop on it before it dries.

When the paint was still nice, I'd use one of those shammies like they use at fancy high end hand car washes. Those things would hold a ton of water!
