    i got it, that shit hella works. it absorbs a whole lot of water, and is easy to ring out unlike those damn chamois. i havent got any straches with it atleast thats what i think.

    I've never seen one, mc technik seems to swear by it. I'll have to look out for it. Where can I get one?

    don't blink.
    the absorber = the best thing ever :)
    i use the california wiper blade to dry the car, & then go over it with the absorber to get the remaining water.

    you can get them at target, i don't think pep boys or places like that sell them, but they sell a similar product.

    Sounds good. There's a Target right down the street from where I'm moving in less than a month. :)

    I'll stick with my microfiber towels. Nothing against the Absorber, it's a pretty decent synthetic chamois, but since there is no nap like there is with conventional towels, any dirt or grit on it may cause scratching if you don't rinse the Absorber often.

    BTW, the easiest way to reduce drying time is once you have rinsed your car, remove the nozzle and lower the water pressure. Then run the hose from top to bottom over your car and most of the water will sheet off, leaving much of the car nearly 100% dry. It works, trust me. :big grin:

    You know, ever since I have been washing cars, I've used this technique. A guy from my Fire Department showed it to me. One day I was going to post it, too, I just always kept forgetting. It really does work. :big grin:

    Pretty much. If your wax job is not too good, it doesn't work as well.
