How do you use an electric leaf blower to dry your car?

I’ve been trying to save some money by not going to the car wash every week. However, washing and drying my Ford Ranger has become a weekly chore that I now despise. My neighbor said he used to dry his car with a leaf blower. Can you tell me how to use a leaf blower to dry my car?

That’s a great way to save some extra cash! Washing and drying your car can be quite the workout! Using a leaf blower is a fast and touchless way to dry off your car. It’s always a good idea to start from the top and work your way down.
Here’s what we know about using an electric leaf blower to dry your car:
  • The most common types of leaf blowers are Handheld Corded Leaf Blowers, Gas Leaf Blowers and Battery Powered Cordless Leaf Blowers.
  • When using a leaf blower, first dry the roof then move on to the windows and windshield. Next, dry the hood and trunk. Third, dry the car doors, quarter, and rocker panels. And finally, dry the tires and wheels.
  • Pros of using a leaf blower: It’s fast and you can kiss drying towels goodbye. Cons of using a leaf blower: It’s loud, it’s heavy, and you need lots of room around your vehicle to get the job done.
  • Best practices include: Drying the tires, wheels, and engine bay if applicable, using a drying towel to get into hard-to-reach nooks, being careful not to nick your car, and not getting tangled up in the extension cord.
