chamois?

Yeah, so Ive been using a chamois ever since I got my car, and its great.

However, as of late, i've been noticing these little pieces of chamois residue being left on my car. Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening, or is it time to get a new chamois?

Thanks for the help

how long have you been using the same chammy? for as long as you've own the car? shame, shame. i usually get new drying equipment every other month so that the residue that collects on it doesn't end up scratching my car. i buy a new sponge about every 3-4 washes.

you want mho, i don't even touch chammy's... i use the absorber. supposedly, it's been proven to reduce swirls and it does pic up left over residue. it's around the same price for the chamois so you wont have to bum mom and dad for cash, you can waste their money at the armani store.

The Absorber, I use the same thing, I love it. It's like 10 bucks, but it's worth the money.

the cali water blade is good too. as long as u rinse ur car really really well. there will be no scratches on the paint. i use to use chamois and there were still small amount of scratches. water blade is about 15-20 bux, but u can dry real fast once u get used to it.

Every Walmart, K-mart, Target, and Auto Zoo I've ever been in carries the Absorber. They come in a plastic storage tube and come in a bunch of colors. Looks like a chamois but it's synthetic. I've got 2 of them.

The Blade is a definite A+ product. It takes a few washes to get used to it but after that drying time is cut in half.
