    Thoughts on using waterblades

    Wondering what all of your thoughts are of using water blades to take off
    excess water before using your towel. Is it too much touching of the paint.

    Re: Thoughts on using waterblades

    after a wash and before drying, flood rinse the car (from top to bottom) with just the hose and that will eliminate the majority of the water to dry off. if you haven't tried the PFM drying towel, i highly encourage to try one out. you can even pick one up in the outlet store for only $15.50! and save even more when there are sales going on. forced air is another option (leaf blower, etc.) as well...

    Definitely PFM towel. Save the blade for your shower door
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Re: Thoughts on using waterblades

    My order that came today included two of those PFM towels from the outlet store along with the blade.
    Guess I'll save the blade for windows and such.

    Visitor I am one step ahead of you. Lol
    Looking forward to trying them, read so much about how good they are.

    Thanks for responding guys, I appreciate it.

    I will leave marring weather you can see it or not. I saw it clearly on my black paint a few years ago after using it for a while thinking it wasn't causing marring. I caught it in the perfect lighting and saw it clearly.

    Re: Thoughts on using waterblades

    I use them on windows and glass only. I do use them on customer cars once I'm done thoroughly washing and decontaminating the vehicle. By then I know the car is perfectly clean and any marks are going to come out with the polishing work I'm about to do on them anyway so it doesn't matter.

    On my cars or vehicles that are already corrected, absolutely not.

    Re: Thoughts on using waterblades

    Hmm, I use my on my windows including moonroofs to get the standing water off the top. There’s been plenty of times I’ve continued on and did the rest of the roof out of laziness too. Hopefully didn’t mar it or degrade LSP too badly during these instances.

    The water blade does make cleaning house windows easier.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.
