With what may seem a simple task, there are most definitely right and wrong ways to dry a car. These can range from the types of products that you use to which part of your car you dry first. Below we help guide you through the best ways to dry your car and what else you might need to help do the job.

Grab the right towel

Not just any towel will do the trick, as your typical household towel will potentially scratch your car surface and worsen the look of the paint over time. The best types of towels to use are dedicated microfibre towels designed to be used for drying your car as they minimise potential damage and are highly absorbent. The MF2 Zero Scratch Microfibre Drying Towel helps minimise marring and is extra absorbent, helping you to dry your car even quicker without damaging the surface.

Start on a high

The best place to start after washing your car is at the top. This is because if you start further down and have the rest of your car completely dry, water may continue to drop from the roof and therefore water will end back up on the rest of the car meaning you spend more time drying the car than you need to.

Spot the water spots

After thoroughly washing and drying your car, you may still notice the odd water spot or mark.. One way to help combat this is by using our QD Quick Detailer. This can be used on any surface of the car to quickly and effectively remove any left over water spots or water marks.


In conclusion, there are a number of ways in which you can dry your car, but it is important to follow a few simple steps to ensure that you are able to do this properly to leave your car looking brand new.
