I got one of those " huge thick drying cloths" when TM visited Meguiars this year - its brilliant, quick-easy and very effective. Recently bought another as halfordfs have them ( and the entire Meguiars range) at 20% off.

My tip of the day: If you have a block paving style driveway done at your house, be very careful that you don’t let any of the kiln-dried sand accidentally get onto your wash-mitt or drying cloths or you may end up with tiny swirl marks all over the wire’s car and your own windscreen.

Better still - have it sealed.

I just snow foam it, jet it off and then switch the jet wash water feed to a container of PURE water. You can buy it from fish shops for around 5p a litre and it’s sold as DIRO (de-ionised reverse osmosis). It’s what the window cleaners use and the aim is to jet off the tap water. If the tap water drys it leaves streaks, the DIRO drives without leaving a lark as there is nothing in it to get left behind. Stops those swirl marks.
