    Agree filtered water is best.Why I bought the air blaster is to blow out any water that accumulates under the door sills.Everyone knows how hard it is to get to this area.
    I didn't buy a garden blower but a professional car blower with filtered tempid air twin motors.
    Don't know about anybody else but even after washing/detailing my 348 I always take her for a good 20 minute drive just to ensure no water is present before putting her back in the garage.
    Here in Sydney we really don't have a humidity problem but still never put her away without drying her down.

    It's true that it reduces the spotting on the bodywork, but it's unlikely that the final rinse with the de-ionised water will remove the "normal" water from nooks & crannies, especially from the wheel/brake areas, air blowers will do this and it also speeds up the drying process in your dehumidified garage unless your garage is at <30% RH
    The rust is caused by the oxygen in the water, the de-ionised water only has the TDS removed unless youve got one that de-oxygenates the water, but wouldn't that just leave you with hydrogen

    I'm thinking Cruella Deville style and breeding little tiny puppies (mongrel as they're cheap) and ickle baby fluffy kittens (again mongrelly ones) and using them as per the post "microfbre towels" to dry off the car.

    If you use the dryer with the built in heater then yes it will be de-humidified

    Gentlemen, we in the Antipodies have no dehumidified air sorry, just plain fresh Aussie air.Also we don't have it in cans.Still its pretty good, blower is actually American.Here I believe its the Ants Pants as far as quality is concerned.
    Washing my 348 on Sunday after church,keep you posted.
