Swirl Marks in Paint

Hey Everyone, I was just wondering if anyone had any advice for me on how i could avoid putting swirl marks in my paint after i get done washing it and drying it. I have a black ss/sc and man does it show every little mark. What my question is, is what do most of you fellow black cobalt owner recommend(products)for drying it. No lie i've tried just about everything. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

For drying use a quality schammy..(spelling?) or a microfiber drying towl. The idea is to slowly remove the moisture of the paint. Your still going to get swirl marks because the paint quality is shit. But like that Gab dude said the Maguires three step pulls them out pretty well. Or if you got skills use a wheel. So bascially if your using any other fabric to dry the car, You're scratching it.

Be careful how you wash it too... If you wash in a circular motion with anything slightly abrasive then the same results occur... If you wash from front to back and no other direction, you'll get some pretty cool looking lines that go straight back... not terribly visible though... trust me, I used to wash cars for a living for a rental car company

^^^That will work well if you dont have well water. It works best if you have a city water, or a well with a good filtration system.

if you wash your car you will get swirls.. no 2 butts about it, what u should do is get a good swirl mark remover and an electric buffer and buff the marks out every 2 months or so

i have laser blue

my car has zero hair line scratches in it. its mint. i wash it with soft hand mit. DONT USE A BUFFER THAT WILL SURELY SCRATCH IT. i use a drying towel its like 8 bucks and its blue at auto zone. i use 2 of them cuz you have to ring them out and go over the car till all water is gone. and wipe off some of the spots. my car is mint everytime i wash it. looks better then the dealership washed it too. if you need anything else ask me thanks.

no buffing

no if you buff the car with buffer it will put more scratches in it no matter if you use swirl mark remover anyway. it doesnt work.
