Dry the car immediately when washing. Many people prefer a chamois to remove the bulk of the water, others prefer a thirsty cotton (lint free) towel. However, a microfiber towel is perfect for the final wipe to remove the last of the water without streaking, especially on glass. They are also great for the intricate surfaces of chrome or aluminum wheels. When drying, work from the top down and be especially careful on glass since any streaks left behind are highly visible. Do the horizontal surfaces first because they do not drain as evenly and then the vertical areas. Finish with the wheels and tires. Don’t forget to wash the towels so they are clean and soft for the next time!
