after reading through most of this material offered on this detailing site, i still am unclear about one thing. I use the normal chamois that i have had for awhile. I wash them after every use. BUT on this site, they mention Waffle Weave drying towels, and i was wondering if they produce better results than the chamois i use. After washing my girlfriends black vehicle, i notice water marks still left after i chamois the car, i may be just going to fast to get it done and miss over, but i am wondering if these Waffle Weave towels are a good buy.
Im also going to buy a grit guard or 2, along with another waffle weave towel or 2 if they have produced great results to anyone here or whatnot.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: if you have used any of the products on this site, or any product in general (mitts, towels, shampoo) , that produces good results and you are happy with please tell me!
I just recently spent a lot of money on new detailing equipment over at detailedimage.com and one of my purchases was a new drying towel, waffle weave. I have dried my car, also being black, several times and noticed the same thing you are with your chamois, a few water spots. Investing in a new waffle weave, personally, wouldn't be a bad investment. I have converted from a chamois quite a few years ago and never looked back. I think the waffle weave towel has less potential to scratch and add micro marring to the paint if there is debris in the towel.
Usually, I will quick detail my car shortly after I wash to get all the water spots off. Mine sits in the garage so the water spots will not etch into the paint but I would advise to keep it in the shade until you can completely dry it.
Also, the grit guard is a great buy. I bought one of those also. I do the 2 bucket wash but only use one grit guard in the rinse bucket.
more knowledge the better. Looks like im gonna buy a grit guard and a waffle weave drying towel. I wash my car, then right after i pull it into my garage to dry it to reduce the water spots. I would like to be able to wash my car in the garage, but have to many electronic things and things that cant get wet in there or i would do that.
