What do you use to dry after a truck wash
 
I have been using a Water Sprite Synthetic Chamois for years since thats what we used in the dealership. Are there better options? I have seen some use a microfiber towel. Are they better has anyone used both?

A towel.

I like the microfiber better if you are wanting to keep your paint super nice. By that i mean if you plan on doing a full clean clay bar and wax type thing or you already did that and need something for upkeep microfiber is your best bet. It traps the dirt farther from your paint and wont be as abrasive and prone to fine scratches as your chamois . If you just want something quick and aren't too worried about it the chamois would be fine. Or you could use a towel.

I use a waffle weave towel but have heard of some using an electric leaf blower followed by their favorite towel.

I use a blower followed by a Korean waffle weave micro fiber towel. I spray the truck with Mequiars Quik Was as i dry it off. Works like a charmt!

Lol. Korean micro fiber is the best. Don't use the towels made in China. They'll scratch as bad as dish towels.

Wouldn't a Mexican with a leaf blower and a Korean with a waffle weave towel be a little more diverse? #MAGA ?

A Stihl BR600 Magnum backpack blower followed up by an absorber on the painted areas and a waffle weave microfiber towel on the windows.

You want Korean microfiber and any of the bestsellers at the rag company are topnotch IMO.
