Iam using an absorber, it works ok. Anything out there that is better?
qew and a waffle weave
I second the Waffle Weave.
I like NXT wash for normal washing.
air blower and premium terry cloth towel
where to buy waffle weave?
and where to buy nxt wash cant find it at target or walmart
You can get excellent microfiber towels (including waffle weaves) at www.pakshak.com Free shipping and Ranney is a great guy to deal with. Fast shipping even though he is in Hawaii.
Meguiars Gold Class Wash is also very good.
Pretty much any soap that says it's car soap will work well. Ditch that Absorber, they scratch paint.
But I like my NXT! It brings me back to those days I would sit on the front porch and eat Jujubes and mint at the same time.
It's the only NXT product I can say that I do like.
What about a Pittards Drysoft Chamois?
Am I the only guy that still uses one? Are they bad for the paint?
is that a fact?
The Absorber tends to grab on to small particles of dust and what not, and with no where to go but against your paint, it can cause some micro-marring. Personally, a 100% cotton towel would be better. Cotton isn't very durable, so WW microfibers are the best thing out as of now.
Of course, you can still use your absorber, just wash it every time you use it.
Does it have a smell or something?
Watch the chamois, they scratch too. There's no nap to hold anything in.
pvc chamois = absorber(tm)
mine works great until I drop it once... then it's a sprint for towels.
Jujubes and a hint of mint!
It's very lubricating, and it seems like it makes the water sheet off well.
I use properautocare.com Big Blue II drying towel, it's pricey, but it's amazing.
Also, I don't ever have much to dry. I learned a technique a few months ago that's awesome. After done washing simply let the hose run over your panels, almost all the water will sheet off if your paint is taken care of.
also guys, you can find good cheap microfiber towels at costco. 12 for 8$
I currently use a chamois and a California Water Blade. Pretty soon, I'll be switching to the waffle weave microfibers but keeping my CWB.
CWB scares the hell out of me... only has to grab one little particle of something and it etches a line alllllll the way down my hood.
db: I actually take the added precaution of cleaning and rinsing the blade to ensure there are no foreign particles on it.
For drying: Waffle Weave Microfiber Towel (www.pakshak.com or www.premiumautocare.com)
For washing: Meguiar's NXT Tech Wash (best wash to date). Its slippery as all hell, very good cleaning and sudsing action, sheets water, and is pretty cheap for the amount you use. If you could get any off the shelf car wash, this is the stuff to get.
clean and rinse between each stroke? because I got mine all nice and clean but it caught a piece of something that had fallen on the car when wet, and that was all she wrote.
try that technique I just mentioned, you'll no longer have a need for the CWB except on windows
after doing that technique I mentioned, you'll have no need for the CWB except on windows
I want to have sex in NXT wash. bwaha
Sounds like l gots to try me some NXT wash!
