EXACTLY....!
too many factors where things could go terribly wrong with some leaf blower, the cord dragging around, some 40 mph leaf-blower wind blowing crap everywhere....
not to mention all the strange looks the neighbors are giving you!

Most that can go wrong when you wipe down a car with an absorber or towel/chamois is you happen to drop the dam thing......oops....time to grab another one and keep going!
