    So after washing my car and as I dry it, this happens to most of my towels and it only happens when I'm drying the hood. I've used clay bar on it today, and it still comes up. It doesn't happen on the other panels and those are repaints. The hood is OEM.

    Ok, I've heard many ways of drying the car, but can someone clarify and explain me this. With a microfibre, people said they dab the car clean with the microfibre towel rather than dragging it.

    From what I've read, most of you blot / pat dry your cars with microfibers and other products and I have tried it. It doesn't work out very well for me though since the car starts drying & spotting way too quickly and my big blue doesn't really absorb that well even after I hose the car down w/o...

    ... you're wasting your life. I know, because I used to waste my time doing it too. But last weekend, I discovered the wonder of microfiber towels. I dried my wife's 4-door Accord and my Type-S and could've easily done two or three more cars before needing to let the towel dry. What's more...

    Hey, Just picked up a yellow shammy looking thing called "the absorber" today. Cost around 10 bucks and works wonders ---easy to use---convenient--lasts forever. Has anyone else used one of these before, also if you could give your opinion. :laughing:

    Car Washing I use 2 methods that work great! 1st Method- This "used" to be my favorite method- "The 2 bucket Method" Using 2 buckets, one for "the suds" and one for "the rinse". Wet the entire vehicle washing away anything that can be removed with water pressure. Wash one section at a time...

    Same person that told me that other tip told me this: After washing car fill a bucket with warm water, not too hot just warm. Splash it on your car and the car is much easier to dry, and needs less drying...
