Hi Guys, am using a traditional leather to dry the exterior of the car and not getting the results I want with mater marks left behind and little pieces of leather. Can someone recommend a suitable exterior bodywork drying product please? TIA.

Lots of options, I like drying towels. Wash leathers are hard work.

I use these:

http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalog/I ... wel_1.html

and these:

http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalog/I ... ack_1.html

which you can get from most detailing websites.

If you go to http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/ you can probably find a discount code to reduce the price by 7%

P.S. I like to clean cars too which is the only reason I know about them. For my sins I've just bought myself a dual action polisher. Oh happy days. :D

Drying towels are the way to do it.Most polish manufacturers and suppliers have some in their range and any car accessory shop will have some,although you can usually pick them up cheaper at shows. :)

These are brilliant and cheap. I think the reviews says it all. Sometimes, Amazon sells them for a little bit over £2.
