NO it is not safe. After a while of cleaning, your clearcoat will be severly scratched. Use a microfiber towel "sponge towel". The microfiber towels should be damp before trying the car.

Simply so, what kind of towel should I use to dry my car?

Microfiber Dryer Towel Microfiber drying towels are the key to drying your car quickly, and without leaving any streaks. Just dampen the towel lightly before you start. Start with the roof, go over flat surfaces, and then move on to cracks and crevices.

Additionally, do I need to dry my car after washing? After washing and drying your car, consider spraying a little wax or protectant to give that extra shiny finish to your car's exterior. You do not have to do this after every car wash, that is assuming you wash and dry a few times a month.

Furthermore, what should you dry your car with?

Use a clean drying towel or synthetic chamois to dry the remainder of the car. Start at the top and work down. If you're using a large drying towel or chamois, throw it out over the flat surface areas and slowly pull it toward you across the surface of the car. Shake and turn your drying towel frequently.
