Using a chamois

How do you properly use a chamois?

When I was using a chamois to dry my car, it is not as smooth as I expected. Am I suppose to wet it? HOw wet is it suppose to be?

Yes you are supposed to wet it. The chamois has to be totally soaked, and then you squeeze it out. After you squeeze it out, you are ready to dry the car.

I just stumbled onto the "CALIFORNIA WATERBLADE".. it is a squeegie type thing that cuts drying the car time by 90%..plus it is such a soft rubber it will not harm your paint.. a freing uses it on his black 2002 F-150 Lightning... not a mark.

AWESOM!

use the synthetic chamois is cool,the one inside a plastic container, regular squeegy does the same as the brand name products,and it handles better,it takes a hr for me to wash and dry a coupe,is it slow or just normal(door sills and all)
