Default Drying Your 6thgen

Source Credit: http://350z-tech.com

We all know that a clean car is a happy car. You probably have a routine you follow when washing, but what about drying your car? There is a way to minimize the amount of water left on your vehicle by using the hose.

Procedure

What you need to do is to remove the nozzle from the hose after washing and rinsing have been done. Low pressure, high volume water, direct the water flow towards the roof of your car (this can be used on any vehicle) You will see it start to sheet off. Move the hose down to "feed" the sheet as it flows down the car - this will keep the sheet wide and it will carry away more water that way. (i.e., feed the wet part, not the dry part.) Do this for all sides, it may take a few passes to get the hang of feeding the sheet. You will see that the water literally sheets off the vehicle, leaving only a few beads. (If you are using the sprayer to final rinse your vehicle you will notice water beading over the entire vehicle) Use your usual drying towel (mf, terry or absorber type) and just blot these spots away.

This will greatly decrease the number of passes you make with your towel and decrease the chances of marring the paint.

Beads of water left on the surface of a car when leaving the nozzle on the hose:
