DRYING-HOW TO DRY IT RIGHT

 

Q.WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DRY MY CAR?

A.
Drying is usually the number one culprit in scratching or swirling your car. Chemical Guys recommends 3 things to minimize your risk. The first thing is to keep a good, high quality wax or sealant on the paint. The second is to use a blower like the Chemical Guys blower or for true enthusiast the Metro-Vac Master Blaster Sidekick or for drying lots of cars the Master Blaster professional will get all the water out of hard to reach areas. Third we recommend a great microfiber towel of your choice for the final wipe down. These super soft towels will get your car 100% dry and are ultra plush and soft and will protect from scratches and swirls.

Q.WHAT TOWEL SHOULD I USE TO DRY?

A.
Chemical Guys has a huge variety of great towels to choose from. Many carwashes like to use a Chamois-like material for drying. Personally Chemical Guys recommends a great drying towel like a Miracle Dryer or for delicate surfaces the Woolly mammoth Drying towel. We also have a great selection of waffle weave towels that many car care enthusiast also like.


Q. COULD I USE A BLOWER TO DRY MY CAR?

A. Yes, save money and time by drying your vehicle with a professional Chemical Guys Blower. Itís by far the best way to get water out of crevices and even blow duct and dirt right out.
