Dry Me Crazy Towel Demo

Made a quick demo for anybody on the fence about buying one of these amazing towels. Hopefully this will clear up any confusion about which is the best drying towel to have ever existed, ever.

Bare with me, I don't have Roshan's cocoa complexion, but I'm doing my best

Watch in 1080p!

Nice video, that towel definitely soaks up the water pretty good!

On a side note, does spraying some detailer spray (prior to drying) help with removing dried water spots while towel drying the car?

Dried water spots prior to drying? Help me understand your question a little better..

It seems that occasionally before I can start drying my wet car, there are already water spots (black car) or water that has already started drying..

Hmm. When was the last time you clayed? Sounds like you have some water deposits or minor etching perhaps that is evident when the car is wet.

Detail spray couldn't hurt to try, but you'll likely need to clay or polish those out, I would guess.

No. My facial hair pattern is straight up trailer park. It just looks weird unless I pair it with a mustard-stained wife beater and jorts.

And I wore that outfit yesterday, so I had to shave.

If he gets what I get, there will actually be parts of the car already dry and water spotting before I get to those points. Granted it's minor and takes just a little agitation to remove.

Towel looks great though, my Guzzler HD was disappointing me today, may have to look in to boiling it or picking up one of these.

Oh ok, yes then the detail spray might be a good option for you guys. I think it's a good thing to do, regardless of if you're having problems or not.

In time your Guzzler HD and your Guzzlers will disappoint you. Both towels suck

Thanks. Definitely will keep it in mind for when I get around to ordering more detail products. For now I'm using Adams great white towel and while they have been good for me they so get soaked pretty easily even with using the sheet rinsing technique. I usually use two towels since I have two.
