Trouble with a drying towel....

....and more cleaning woes!

After watching the cleaning demo at the Annual Meet, I asked my girls for a drying towel, as used by Bert himself (he was kind enough to send me a link the the one he used), for Fathers' Day.

So, new towels in hand (the girls bought me two, bless them) I set about a full clean of the S8. Then the pressure washer packed in, needing a new on/off pressure switch. So I ordered a new one and fixed it. Then it packed in again, needing new brushes. Fixed it again. +++

Then finally got the car cleaned and started to dry it - the towel is really worth every penny, making drying very quick and getting the car really dry, so less risk of swirl marks and drying spots.

But, as you can see from the photos, I'm not the only fan of the new towel! :(

The colour will attract them, unfortunately. Never had that issue with mine, but then I don't live in one of the midge capitals of the UK :D

Well that was unexpected!

I need to get one of those towels. I was very impressed how well it worked compared to my current ones.

The towel is brilliant and, BTW, I don’t live in a midge capital anymore and these aren’t midges (which are much smaller). I think these are known locally as thunderflies and are common in the East Midlands in warm weather, often ahead of thunder storms. Usually very short lived, thankfully. :)

But The Master of Fibes towel gets really good reviews, so I also bought one of them.

I use Gyeon drying towels, never found anything better to dry well maintained paint

Have also just bought one of these as I had some Halfrauds vouchers that needed using

Only used it once so far so too early to say but seemed to do a decent job
