I'm kinda new to the high end detailing products, so I have been trying a lot of new stuff (to me) over the last couple of months. I have a new car that I wash and use a quick detailer on a couple of times a week. I haven't done anything drastic to it yet even though it was a 2010 demo and has a lot of swirls in it.
Since I like my car CLEAN at all times I don't want to spent 2 hours washing and QDing it. Here's my routine:
Rinse (1st with water only, then Meguiar's Gold Class in one of those wash guns)
Wash (Bucket with Meguiar's and MF sponge)
QD (If I feel it needs it)
The question I have is in the drying part. I have always used a chamois (real and man made) and they always worked well for me. Quick drag across the surface and when saturated a couple of twists and I back in business. Now 1 day I'm in Manny, Moe and Jack's place and see a plush MF towel for drying. I buy and try and it works very well the first couple of times - 1 towel no wringing (I tried but it couldn't get it to release a drop of water) dryed the whole car in a jiffy. At around wash # 4 I notice it's not absorbing quite the same and leaving tiny (I mean tiny) water spots.
Next wash I get the Cobra waffle weave (brand new from AG) and the 1st pass is brilliant but as the towel become saturated (and this one I can hang wring) I notice the same teeny tiny water beads.
Oh where oh where am I gong wrong?
