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.

Haha just started not working as well. It used to clean it right up in one swipe. Now it took a couple. Eventually I'll bite for this towel, I wasn't a fan of Adams Great White since everytime I dried threads would pop out and get caught on every crack and crevice. If it works anywhere near as well as the Cloudbuster I might as well order Microfiber Madness towels only.

That was one of my issues with it, with a drying towel I want to stick with one and prefer to not have to go back over areas and in my post above for some reason it kept popping threads which kept getting caught on emblems, corners, etc... I got sick of having to cut them off now I barely use it except for spray sealants wipedowns and such.

I just got one today. You think it's absolutely mandatory to wash it before it's first use? It feels so soft now, I just wanna try it out fresh from the baggie... any harm in that besides the possiblility of a few loose fibers coming out of the towel? I know they say wash everything first, but I swear my Adams towels never work as well after they're washed as they did when they were brand new.

Can't imagine there being any harm in it. Let me know.

Ok. Now that you have a high res video camera I can think of someone who now has serious competition.

Your paint looks AWESOME!

Time for washing, claying and polishing videos!

That said, given the music and the "vivid" sign on the background at first I was wondering just what you were going to show us! ;-)

Probably because he's not a 14 year old girl. Although I have to take some exception to labeling arguably the greatest guitar player of all time as 'porn music.' You guys must all listen to Nikki Minaj, Drake and Lil Wayne.
