I still use a leather chamois, I think most use large microfiber towels now so i'm sure my technique is a little outdated but it works. Maybe i'll switch soon.

Echo leaf blower followed by a quality Korean waffle weave towel. I love the towels from Rag Company, especially the Dry Me a River towels.

Check The Rag Company. Target sells cheap Chineese towels. Rag Company sells Korean made towels, which are superior in every category. Their prices are the cheapest I've seen anywhere.

Yes, I have about 10 of them. The absolute softest, plushest waffle weave towels I've ever used. Nothing else quite compares to them. They are in a league of their own.

I hear they recommend using unicorn tears to wash them so they keep their softness.

Use a Stihl leaf blower and an old fashion leather chamois.

I've had the same Absorber for 10 years. I need convincing it's not the best thing out there.

Garage
A Metro Master Blaster and microfiber towels. If they're sewn in China using Korean material they're GTG. I have a couple of purple 25x36 inch jobs that are great for drying the roof and hood without a lot of stretching and reaching. I have a Stihl leaf blower but I use it as a vacuum as well so it wouldn't be a good idea to use it on a vehicle.
