    Default Cheap leaf blower.

    Nicked from detailing world,i've been on the look out for a cheap blower to dry the car,saw on detailing world Homebase are doing a B&D 18V one for 14.99!, best things are,the battery is the same as other B&D tools and it's got a 30 day money back guarantee so you can try it and its pants (which it doesn't seem to be)you can give it back.In case you think i'm mad,how annoying is it when water runs down a dry panel from a hidden crevice and leaves a water mark.

    Always thought about using something to dry mine, keep us up to date with the results sound like a good idea.

    its mildly annoying when water drips from the mirrors but a quick wipe with the cloth sorts it. How much stuff could you use to wash & polish the car ? If I ended up with loads of kit i'd stop using half of it. I bought a rotary polisher a couple of years ago, only used it about three times.
