I use a micro fibre cloth! Even though mark says its crap, if you use the right one there 100x better than a leather!

i clean my paintwork after every journey and i know what you mean about dust but i dont let this stay on mine for to long

once youve got yer car looking clean why not keep it that way, i find it so much easier to clean when its not been left for weeks and weeks

totally agree with you jono,

the thing is a chamois is actually quite rare and expensive,
they dont actually sell the real thing in halfords lol

hence they fall apart etc

i've currently got a megs drying towel and is loads better,
.

thats what i mean. you go to Halfords and buy a chamois ( i used to try and get a bigger one ) cost yer £13 or so and it would last less than a year

i have 2 Autoglym Aqua Dry cloths but they are no match for my latest purchase in the drying stakes.
I washed the missus's KA the other day in the sunlight i might add but had no problems with streaking, watermarks etc.... i could actually get it all dry before the sun did

gets rid of all the muck
