Best drying tool?

Hey all, what is the best drying tool out there? Don't tell me the Absorber, or water blade either, no luck with either of these.

The problem is the color, the Molten Lave Red shows EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING. No matter how carefule or attention to detail, there are still streaks and spots afterwards.

Also, how do you keep the streaks from drying showing up a couple of days later in the form of dust gathering? I love the color, but I am to busy to be washing every other day!

HELP

Have you tried the Mr Clean car wash system? Works great... no water bucket, no drying required, no water spots.

That really works huh? Looks to good to be true, if it ever stops raining here I will try it, about to rub the paint off constantly drying and misting with the detail spray getting rid of spots and streaks!

I use the Mr. Clean also and really like it but then again I'm a lazy S.O.B. I was skeptical about it myself but I am impressed with it (that doesn't take much either). The Patriot Blue shows everything too.

If you want to know the easy way to do anything, just ask a lazy man.

Ditto on the Mr. Clean system, it really does what they advertise. Also, I keep what's called a "California Duster" in my truck for a real quick dusting, works great also.

Yup, been a fan of the Calfornia Duster for almost 15 years now. My dad was the first one to get it around here.. I use that in between my washes and quick detailing.

I use a leaf blower to dry mine off. It puts out 200+ mph wind, just like the auto dryer at the car wash. I have been using this method for a few years now. Works excellent!! You never have to worry about swirl marks or anything. I have used it on my 02' HD Fatboy and 01' Viper (when I had them).

Try it, you will love it. Takes about 5 mins. or less to completely dry your truck. Also, drys the tires real fast so you don't have to wait in order to apply tire shine.

Just my 2 cents. I'm a detail fanatic!!!
