Ways To Dry A Car

Even a casual detailing enthusiast understands that the equipment used to wash a car can have either a positive or negative effect on the car’s surface. It is very important to use materials that will minimize the chances of scratching or swirling the paint when washing it. However, what most people overlook when detailing their cars is the final, and most crucial step when it comes to avoiding scratching and swirling: drying your car.

Drying your car with the wrong materials or equipment can reverse the hard work you put in to meticulously cleaning and coating your vehicle. Understandably, drying your car can be a time-consuming step in the process, especially when you want to beat dripping water streaking up the surface. Dust and debris floating in the air will also seek the wet and shiny surface immediately.

One of the most common ways to dry a car is by allowing it to air dry naturally.

Dust and debris will also setting into the surface, giving the car a dull and grimy look.

Using a high-quality  Q2M Silk Dryer or Twist N Shout Drying Towel, is the most popular way of drying cars responsibly. Be sure to use something designed specifically for drying cars. There are more fibers making contact with the surface of your car, so it is more absorbent than an everyday towel. Keep in mind that there are trade-offs when it comes to hand-drying, even with a high-quality towel. 

For one thing, it takes time to remove every drop of moisture and not to miss any spots. With that said, it is especially difficult to reach tight spots. And in order to make sure drying won’t leave scratches or swirls, they need to be thoroughly washed or replaced to prevent the build-up of harmful mineral deposits and debris.
