So I moved my car out of the garage last weekend (2nd and 3rd) to work on a Nissan XTerra (piece of junk). It sat out side all week and across the weekend. It got snowed on and now it is getting rained on. To make a long story short the Nissan is done and out of my garage now I have to clean the floor from all the leaks it had. I am trying to push the season and start driving it this week but it is dirty. I washed it in Jan and dried it with regular bath towels and they did all right. I used to use a shammy to dry my trucks but they are in bad shape now and they left white water spots . What is the best way to dry it in cool weather 45 or so degrees and not get the water spots? With this Deep Impact Blue I am going to have to figure this out soon.

Get some microfiber towels that are like 30% cotton and 70% polyester. Also if you are doing it in the sun the water will dry quick and leave some spots. But with the microfiber towels you shouldn't have a problem with spots.

Do NOT use a Gas powered blower (JUST DON"T)

A good electric powered lief blower does an excellent job and the air that comes out of it is clean and dry.
A gas powered lief blower can have a slight mist of Oil and crap come out and get all over the nice just washed car. Do NOT used a gas powered blower.

I use a two speed electric blower that the high speed is supposed to be 250MPH and it works perfect. I discovered this method about 40 years ago on my Harley Davidson motorcycles. I have been using my blower on all of my vehicles since.

Thanks for all the reply's. It is snowing again so the car is stuck in the garage so much for pushing the season. I will have to get an electric leaf blower for this job. When it gets warmer out I will be washing and waxing it and figuring out how to just plain keep it looking good while using it as a DD for the summer.

Thanks

spring cleaning isnt that bad, good way to get the car 100% clean and ready, leaf blowers help but they wont fully dry the car, I would recommend some good super soft 100% cotton towels to final dry (not cheap ones, the ones you buy for home use and ones without embroidery etc just a normal towel with no crap on them)

Thankfully I keep mine dry and never have to wash with soap/water (aka no water spots ever!) lol
