had the exact discussion with my dear wife over the weekend when we zaino-ed our mdx... ended up using those small terry cotton towels from sam's club for everything (they came in with 36 towels in a pack, going to last for a while)... haven't noticed any swirl marks or scratches so far...DaleB said:

___FireBlade6, have you tried a leaf blower yet? I can promise you it works very well indeed.
I have not used a leaf blower yet but theoretically it may work however, I have questions in regards to the type of leaf blower it is. If it is an electric, then I don't see any problems in it but if it is a gas driven one, I would like to stay away from it simply because the air coming from the gas driven blower will also blower out evaporated two cycle gas mixture that can damage the paint.
I have an air compressor at home where I use it to blow water our of crevices such as the mirrors and engine compartment and such.

The problem is that I have to keep them from my wife; she wants them for herself instead of the MDX. I found them at my local Target store. Only the best for the ‘X.
well, i kept telling her the great success stories people have been talking about here on this board, and most importantly, how easy it should be to 'wax' the mdx with zaino... and after 4 months' of re-education she finally got so tempted trying to put a coat on herself... i consider myself a job well done...:2:xcel said:Hi Jj_mdx:
___Lastly, how did you get your wife out there to help Zaino the X anyway? Now that would earn the “Tips and tricks” of the month award
I have been using the absorber for a couple years & it's great :4:Fireblade6 said:One of the most important thing that I learned to have is the Absorber. This is a man made chamois that is excellent for a clearcoat painted car....
