Default for those that wash cars

I dont know if its a new thing but after washing your car instead of using a towel or whatever you call that rubber thing to dry it people are using their leaf blower. Im sure its easier on the body and arms. That way you dont touch your car drying it. Saw it on youtube.

I tried it and it didn't seem to work well....maybe the blower was not powerful enough.

It's not a new thing. People have been using leaf blowers for years.

I for one have never heard of such a thing but it sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the scoop OP.

It's easier for me to grab the silicone squeegee than plug in the leaf blower, grab my hearing protection, all that. After the squeegee it takes very little towel to finish (yes that's for you Knoog). Usually three of the small microfibers.

If you own a C4 you can use a sander.

Why would anybody want to blow leaves onto their car?

I'll have to ask "my people" down at the car wash place about this great idea.

Haha I laughed pretty good at this.


Been using the electric leaf blower method for years. I particularly like how it gets all the water out of the cracks, especially the mirrors.

And I thought letting the air dry it without any help worked pretty good.
