Default Silicon/Water blade

Is this thing available in india? Its used to remove excess water from the car's surface. the nearest I've seen is what i see people in restaurants use to wipe the tables, but I'm not sure if that can be used on a car ?
To get an idea of what I'm talking about see Wiper Supply Services - Hydra Flexi Blades - The ORIGINAL and STILL the BEST!
Anyone has any ideas where to get hold of one ?

Don't use these things. If a single particle of grit gets stuck on the blade, a seriously deep scratch will result. However, the are effective otherwise. But in our dusty and dirty surroundings, they will be too much headache.

nah, I'm kind of fed up using chamois/cloth to dry the car - This is after the 2nd or 3rd wash , and the car should be clean by then ( I wash using my bare hands - better than cloth/sponge, and cheaper and more durable than chamois )

I take the car for a small spin after washing it.
So that any stray drops of water will dry off.
