Choosing a Great Towel for Drying Your Car

In this video, I discuss drying a car with the Pluffle waffle weave towel from The Rag Company. If you don't know anything about The Rag Company, be sure to kook at this thread.

The towel that I use in this video is not only affordable, it is very practical for watery situations. With the foundation of the towel being a waffle weave style towel, it is already absorbent. Incorporate some of the plush offered by the Eagle Blue Edgeless towel and you have combined a level of safety to coexist with all that absorbancy. Together, they are known as the "The Platinum Pluffle", a 16"x16" plush waffle weave towel that is excellent for drying your entire car.

There was always two things that bothered me about the giant drying towels that folks normally use and the first was how cumbersome they were to wring out. The second was keeping them folded once they were saturated with water. This problem is a non-issue with the Platinum Pluffle as you will see in the following video.

Enjoy!

The Junkman

If you want to do that, let me advise you to start with the playlist that I have setup for novices. That way, you will see my videos in an order that makes sense and you won't end up skipping around and watching videos that will cause confusion in your learning process, as well as watching videos in a non-productive order.

This was a hologrammed mess thanks to the dealership when I bought it a year ago.
