drying problems

whenever i dry my car w/ a chamois i keep getting cloth stuff on it, so i try to wash it off (making it wet again)... it's a nonstop process that won't end, have any ideas for drying off w/o getting swirl marks?

RedDragon333 will become famous soon enough
Try the absorber it works great...no marks and no streaks......if you dry it like your supposed to you shouldnt have to worry about swirl marks dry it and wash it in straight lines...like up and dwon on the hood and trunk and left to right on the side panels

If you REALLY want to get your car dry, fork over $30 for a Super Absorber. I work at a detailing shop, and I've been able to dry off things like Yukon Denalis and Navigators without even wringing the thing out.

The absorber does work great, you could also use a metro blow n' vac to blow all the water off too with out touching the car.

yeah shammy's (myspelling) suck cause they leave that residue everywhere. Absorber; get one and don't look back.
