    What do you use to wash and dry?

    Title says it,

    What Mitt or ''Towel'' do you wash with?
    Me- I use a 100% Sheep whool wash mitt, its ''ok''


    And what do you use to dry with?
    Me- A Amorall Drying Towel. And finish up with a 100% cotton towel.

    Looking to see what is more popular, i have yet to find a good drying towel. Nor wash mitt.

    Yes, but that is why I use a towel with Z6.

    The blower gets the bulk of the water off and the water in the cracks.

    Thats why you gotta be careful with it, i rinse mine off after 3-4 swipes, and only use it on the large and flat areas....i like microfiber towels too

    Why waste money on towels when you can spend $30 at home depot and get a leaf blower? Then just micro fiber the excess up. No water spots.
