Drying

Becuase we're not sheeting the water off the car after rinsing, we can cut our drying time with the cloths by using a small battery powered blower. If you have one, quickly go over the car and try to get rid of some of the standing water to make the drying process a little easier.

In our article, we've used The Big Green Sucker with Boss Gloss on it to help the drying process. You could also use the After Glow drying aid to add more protection while you dry if you prefer this method.

The technique for using The Big Green Sucker is easy; drape The Big Green Sucker over your arm with the bulk of the towel hanging down. Holding the Boss Gloss at least 30cm to 40cm from the towel, mist 4-6 sprays of Boss Gloss straight into the towel. Flip the towel over and spray another 4-6 sprays on the other side. Then, grab each end of the towel and starting from the roof, slowly glide it across the wet surface, drying the water as you go. On the lower panels, fold the towel in half, so it cannot ever drop down and touch the ground.

If you're using After Glow, grab 2 Big Softie cloths and dampen one, then wring it out and fold it into quarters with the low pile side facing out. Spray 4-6 sprays of After Glow into the cloth and dry a section of the vehicle (a section might be half of a bonnet, a door etc). Wait for around 1 minute, then wipe off any remaining residue with a clean and dry Big Softie cloth. Wring out your first cloth, then spray 2 more sprays of After Glow into the cloth, and dry the next section - continue this method until the whole car is done.
