Mr. Clean AutoDry Carwash. Seen the commercial on TV. If it works like they say it does, it'll be great!!

I love how they create problems out of nothing and they always have the dumb oaf trying to do it the "old fashioned way". Like when they did the side by side comparison in the 120second video of the drying action vs. some guy trying to manually dry it. The manual guy is all goofy and barely trying. I like to watch infomercials on tv and watch the black and white re-enactment of the "old" way of doing whatever it is they're selling and they have some completely retarded person that can't seem to get the scrubber into the toilet bowl or whatever heh

I have hard water which leaves white spots if I dont chamios it out rightaway after rinsing. I might give this stuff a try if it works as easy as the commercials.

I have a soft brush on a pole. Usually used for RV'* or trucks. Takes me 5 minutes to wash the car. California water blade to dry it (yes, those things really work). Then a small hand-towel to finsish what the blade leaves behind.

I've been using The Absorber lately. Picks up water like you wouldnt believe.
John, take one for the team and see how that stuff works.

Used the absorber of my own for about 6 months, best damn thing ever, kicks the crap out of a shammy, doesn't mold/rot, can store wet, and is washable.

Since drying is the part I hate most about washing my car, I plan to at least get the starter set (They're mailing me my coupon). I'll pick a nice day this spring and do a wrtite up with pics to see how well it works.

And did I mention the cool looking sprayer you get?? A coat of black paint, some silver detailing, and I can shoot squirrels in style if nothing else...
