Holy shit, has anyone tried this? I just picked one up, I have a real sheep skin shamis, and this "absorber" thing works 10 times better.

Definately recommend it.

I have one . . . been using it for 2 years . . I love mine . .

I have the purple one.

Mine still works awesome and no tears ! ! !

Just make sure you rinse it good and don't let it dry completely. If so, make sure it dosen't crack just re-wet it.

Keep it moist.

makes cleaning your car so much easier especially if you've got a black car like me

You can literally dry a car in 5 mins without a streak left, great stuff.

I've been using the Absorber for a good 5 years now and it is the best product for drying your car out there. Pep Boy's sells it for 9$

the california water blade is not bad either although it takes some trust to believe you won't scratch the paint - bought one at cdn tire last year...

True dat, when I was drying my brother's Civic which to my knowledge has NEVER been waxed it was sorta sticking to it. Never had that problem on any other car even ones with half-assed paintcare.

Wal-mart also carries them. I think it was around $12 when I got it.

Well it was my cusins, he used it on his brand new 330ci, he was showing me cus i told him to buy it.....I tried it and it was sticky it almost fell outa my hand....didn't try it on my car thou.

I guess since its new it probably wasn't waxed, unless new cars come waxed
