Well dont know who has heard of this before, but im aware of some people using a leaf blower, or compact blowers to dry their car.

Im all for using a drying towel but what i thought to be a bargain came up so i got it to see if its any good.

Below is a picture of the one i got, vacum, blower, shredder 2600w.

Its a discontiunued model so was on clearance in Homebase, prices online range from £60 to £90

Its bloody powerful, i havent tried the suction part but the blower is very powerful i reckon it will dry the car quick, it almost took my head off when my old man pointed it at me. :doublesho

I got it for the price of ?????????? well guess

As much as water coming out the gaps after polishing a car annoys me, I can't help but think what a loser I'd feel by using a leaf blower on my car

£10, tbh im not expecting much from it for drying the car, but for £10 it will probably serve its purpose in the garden.

If its shit ill get my money back on it by selling it.

Yeah...........theres a guy at wok who admitted that he dries his ass with a hair drier after being in the shower because a towel feels un-natural.

THIS IS WORSE!!!!

To be fair a hair drier on your arse does feel pretty good

And for £10 I would definetly have bought one. I drive my car to get rid of streaks but it still comes out eventually when driving along

I dry my balls and ass.

Far superior to a towel.

Colin, your missing out it seems, either that or your bald downstairs

The only one I'm vaguely contemplating purchasing is the black baron one from Polished Bliss, but it won't be till winter when drying a car is actually more tricky. £200 or whatever it is though is still difficult to justify!

some drying detailer and a good towel will do, i use dodo juice time to dry and a supernatural towel, as soon as you spray it onto the surface the water just beads off

I'd feel like a right plonker drying my car with one of those. Would be handy for blowing the water out the shut lines though. Still I just wouldn't
