    Has anyone got a recommendation for a good drying towel? I've bought the bright turquoise autofinesse one but when I went to dry my car with it it just dragged and wasn't smooth on the paint at all. I've heard good things about klinkorea ones but the size I'd want is never in stock anywhere.

    Having just spent £800 on a heavy paint correction and ceramic coating I'd rather avoid sandpapering my paint with a sketchy draggy towel!

    I use The Rag Company towels THE DOUBLE TWISTRESS but also just use a dog dryer to blow off all the water (£50 from Amazon)

    I've been trying to find one of these but they're always out of stock or only in a small size :(

    I'd love a drying machine but the neighbors probably think I'm mad as it is washing the car as often as I do, god knows what they'd think if they saw me hoovering the alloys

    Could go for the EVO edition:

    They are expensive, but save so much time! Also, you don't have to wring it out. It actually works better when it's absorbed a lot of water (heavier) you don't press on it, literally just drag it across the car.

    plush ones off of amazon for about £6 have been great and cause no harm to paintwork

    Put an order in for one today, hoping it'll be here for the weekend and that the rain goes by then too, if it keeps raining like this I might be selling a limited edition submarine Leon soon.

    You won't be disappointed (except by the weather). You don't need to put pressure on it. I just drag it lightly across all the flat surfaces. Then fold it into quarters and run it once in the same direction across all the side surfaces.

    I use the "Cleanyourcar Huge Fluffy Drying Towels" and have found them good for absorption and softness.
