for the cd test of the m/f towels, how should you do this test? just gently wipe across the cd? Give a little muscle behind it as if you were cleaning windows? A back and forth motion? Just trying to get an accurate idea for the test.

Wipe with similar effert to what you would wipe your car, whether it be for drying or buffing. I would think that more oomph would give a truer test of the abrasiveness of the towels.

if you're planning on using a towel, wash mitt, etc., on your car, test it on a CD first and make sure it doesn't scratch the CD. If it will scratch your CD, it will scratch your car.

I heard somewhere where a leaf blower dries a car well; can't remember where (must be getting old). Haven't tried it yet though.

I use my shop vac (cleaned out) on the blower port and it works very well also!

really helps push the water out of crevices! Just be sure where you aim the nozzle, if aimed at the ground by mistake you will blow dust back on a freshly washed car! angry-hitselfonhead.gif Start at the top of the car work your way down!

Good Point CC!

I did not think the vac had that much blow power as the leaf blower (which I assume the leaf blower had more).

Another thing I've done is raise the car on jackstands and pressure-wash the undercarriage; preferably before washing the car. Make sure you don't remove the undercoating. If you don't have some undercoat, it would be a good idea to get some put on.

You're right! The leaf blower will be more powerful, but the shop vac gets the job done without being over powered!

It all helps!

Then perhaps an air compressor would be a useful alternative to get to the crevices!

Always trying to give another reason to use my air compressor. rofl.gif Not sure if I will try that though. Although I have considered it to help blow away water on the engine if I get bold enough to tackle that.
