Black Magic
The Black Magic (800/416-1600, www.blackmagiccarcare.com) wheel brush is made from a combination of non-slip matte rubber and high-gloss red plastic. The grip area allows you to hold the brush directly over the bristle area for more torque and cleaning power, while the soft, feathered bristles delicately clean your wheels, preventing scratches. The Black Magic wheel brush is also designed to be rested on its back when not in use, so that the bristles will not become contaminated with dirt.

Absorber
The Absorber (available at most auto parts retailers) is a synthetic drying chamois made of high-tech PVA material that has a unique open cell structure to maximize water absorption. The Absorber absorbs water three times faster and holds 50 percent more water than a regular towel or chamois. Its tough, durable construction is resistant to most chemicals and detergents, is unharmed by grease, oil, and solvents, resists tearing or shredding, will never flake apart, will not rot or mildew, can be machine washed, and lasts years with normal use. Yet its soft material is gentle and will not harm even the most delicate surfaces. Comes in a handy storage tube to keep out dirt and contaminants.
