Best way too wash a car without drying?

Is this even possible?

I am scared of ANY drying method that involves some sort of fabric rubbing against the paint in the hopes of drying the car!

SO I'm wondering if there is any product out there that doesnt require a wipe down...may be at most a blow dry with a blower.

I have a black sapphire metallic

Blowing is probably your only option if you want touchless. You may want to look into a filter it you have hard water where you live (will cut down on the water spots).

I have used the ABSORBER sold at Walmart to dry my cars for years. It works great and doesn't scratch

This is the best thing I have ever seen.

You just wash the car then throughly rinse it with this and just let it dry or take it round the block to dry. Won't leave any water spots and will leave a spotless finish.

Has anyone ever tried out this system ? How often does the resin need to be re-charged / replaced ?

Maguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax

Maguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere. Spray on, wipe off, dry and buff. No drying, no buckets, it works great. Just did the whole car and it worked great, even on some heaver-soiled areas.

Out of curiosity, how are you going to WASH the car without touching it?

I use our electric leaf blower. It blows the water out of the crevices and basically does a Great job!

I'd invest in some good microfiber towels though, but that's just me.
