    Default Microfibre cloths

    Hi all, did a clean polish wax with meguiars yesterday. Nice results, but..... can't seem to get a good drying result with a microfibre cloth, it just seemed to move the water around, and smear it. Ended up digging out the chamois which worked perfectly. Am I missing something? Cheers.

    What sort of Microfibre were you using.... need a 'waffle' type towel like a Megs Water magnet. ALso, best results are gained by getting most of the water off first with a silicone 'blade' type squeegee.

    As above, also I recommend when you have removed most of the watr, spritzing it with some Megs last touch, this elimnates any watermarks and leaves it nice and slick ready for what ever treatment you have in mind after.

    Just a 'normal' microfibre cloth, similar to the Meguiars supreme shine microfibre, no waffle !

    That will work, but will fill up with water very quickly... best to get a Water Magnet, and a silicone blade.... and as Marty says, use a bit of Last Touch or Quik Detailer while drying, to help lubricate the panel and remove water marks.

    Are you useing a micro fibre cloth that you polish the car with to acctually dry it, As you would be better off useing a micro fibre Drying Towel to dry your motor. There is a difference between the two types of cloth,s.

    That's the ones I'm using.

    No, I'm not drying with the polishing cloth

    Tip, Rinse your car with a watering can with the end taken off or open hose pipe (flooding method). The water will just sheet off leaving very little on the car, then just pull a waffle microfiber over the car and it will be dry. A good clean paint surface (clayed and waxed) will hardly need drying, just draging a cloth over the hole car in one go will do.
