Wow I’ve been using this neat as a drying aid all along. So handy - one spray per panel and dry with one wipe.

Used it neat myself on a dry car found the last time I must of used a tad to much as it left a sticky smear sort of thing .

Yea I wasn’t impressed with Sonax due to the residue left behind. This may be the answer but Hybrid is hard to beat IMO

Yip sounds like too much product. I usually use 1 spray per panel, and load the microfiber with 1 spray before I start. You need to keep shaking the bottle to mix the product.

For me cant see why youd not use hybrid

Its a godsend of ease of use and durability and the smell. And no flaff of watering down etc

Yes @davyk31 drying towels used in that way are actually quite abrasive. They cause probably the worst looking of all defects (wash marring) but luckily the easiest to fix

Thanks Pete. What about a wee video to show us how to safely dry a car. I know you do tuition days but a fair few of us likely never can get to one of those.

Like this crap. Car was previously defect free until I realised how important a proper 'safe wash' is,
