It's a great idea as long as it has a filter for the intake. Otherwise it can pickup debris and basically shoot it at your paint.

True, the shammies don't have a knap to catch any particles well, so if you drag them they could scratch if there is contaminate on the surface. What they do very well, however, is soak up large quantities of water quickly. So to use them I blot. This way your not dragging the cloth and it still removes most of the water. Follow up with the waffle drying towel and your dry in no time.
