    Go through both product lists. If you have any more questions after that, post them in this thread and I'll see them.

    You'd be better off using microfiber towels to dry your car. You get anything caught under the squegee and it could scratch your paint.

    how about the Aqua Dry thingy.. it's like a chamois, but not.. you know, it comes in those plastic tubes..

    They work, but also have no nap, so if anything gets between it and the paint there is a chance it will cause scratches.

    Right now, microfiber towels work the best.
