Some modern paint finishes are susceptible to marring no matter how carefully they are treated, and drying them off after washing poses two key problems. Firstly, there is always the danger when working outside that fresh airborne contaminants may settle on the car after rinsing off. Wiping the car dry with a microfibre drying towel can result in such contaminants causing marring as they are trapped by the towel and drawn across the bodywork. Secondly, as paint is dried off, all lubrication is effectively removed, meaning that the friction between the towel and the bodywork increases. This in itself can be enough to cause marring on some paint finishes. The solution to both problems outlined above is to cut out any wiping of the paint. It is possible to pat dry a car using a microfibre drying towel in only a little more time than that required to wipe it dry. By not wiping, any fresh contaminants are not moved around over the paint and towel friction is kept to a minimum. A further option that significantly reduces the need for any towel contact with the paint is to use an air blower to dry the car off. Dedicated vehicle dryers work extremely well in this respect (better than leaf blowers and vacuum cleaners with blower functions) and virtually eliminate the risk of inflicting fresh marring altogether. The final benefit of using a dryer is it can remove water from areas you simply couldn’t reach using regular drying towels such as panel gaps, wing mirror and trims. Using an air dryer forces water out of these cracks preventing drips after you’ve tried and in some cases helps prevent water build up especially on classic cars the can lead to rusting. A tool like the BLO Car Dryer RS is certainly an indulgence, but it works incredibly well and vastly reduces the risk of inflicting paint defects during the drying process. With a bit of imagination, it can serve many other useful purposes too; we use ours not only to dry our cars, but also to blast polishing dust out of door shuts and vents, and to blow dust and other detritus out of interior vents and seat runners. Combine this with the rock solid five year warranty it comes with and the smile it will put on your face every time you use it, and it becomes a priceless bit of kit to own. Who says you can't have fun when detailing your car?!

How To Use
The BLO Car Dryer is a mains-powered dryer and thus subject to a number of health and safety risks that should be fully understood from the outset; please read the supplied instructions carefully. After washing and rinsing your car, use the BLO Car Dryer to blow residual water off of the panels, starting from the top and working down, and paying particular attention to panel gaps and crevices around trims and vents. Try to work as quickly as possible, as you don't want any of the lower panels drying off naturally before you get to them. We find that keeping a PB Luxury Drying Towel to hand for localised pat drying here and there is also very helpful, as you will inevitably re-wet some panels a bit as you blast water out of panel gaps and crevices lower down the car.
