A regular cloth can get stone fragments in it, in turn, scratching the body of your vehicle. Synthetic Chamois is a silky surface that absorbs water and dries your vehicle off.
The Absorber is a great brand for Synthetic Chamois. They are currently on sale at Zellers for $15.97. Also if your lucky, Zellers has a 50% of any yellow sticker products in the automotive section so you can possibly get this for $7.99! The 50% off ends April 10.
