Nikki, I've used the absorber for years with my old car. It works great, but you have to "wipe" and not "blot". I've also read on these forums that wiping can create scratches. Blotting with the absorber doesn't work well and leaves these weird marks. Have you ever had any scratches wiping with the absorber?

I've never scratched the car. My technique is to fold it in half and wipe towards you in lines.
