If washing your vehicle is the first step in maintaining your vehicle’s paint finish, then drying is the second. Gently drying your vehicle with the proper towel is the only way to prevent water spots and thereby keep your paint looking its best.
Water spots are actually mineral deposits that remain on the paint after water evaporates. They can etch the paint and cause permanent damage. Preventing water spots is as easy as towel-drying your vehicle after every wash!
A microfiber waffle weave towel or a soft, leather chamois will safely dry your vehicle without causing swirl marks or scratches. For added protection, keep your drying towels separate from the rest of your detailing towels. This will prevent cross-contamination and keep your vehicle’s paint finish shiny and smooth.
