washing your car
Who here uses or used that mr clean auto dry wash? Does it actually dry without spots or is it full of shit? Is it worth the 15$? Because I am starting to get sick of drying it myself now days, plus I dont always have the time.

If ur car is black, like mine, IT SUX! The water does not dry at they say it does. For just about NE other color, it's OK.

It works really good on my silver car. Dont get it if you have a black car or if you dont wash your windows with anything other than just the mr. clean. Otherwise it works great and i would recommend it thumbsup

i've used it, and my car is black. it worked great. you have to make sure the filter is good, otherwise it will leave bad spots. the starter kit filter is good for approx. 3 washes, depending on use and how hard the water really is. the water in my area is terrible, so it didn't last long. after a week, my car still looks great. the windows could use a going over with a glass cleaner or something, however, but considering the only alternative around here is an automated wash (our water will take the paint off your car, it's that hard), it's definately a bargain.

it sux, it doesnt leave spots, and makes car look fine, but if you touch the paint it leaves a residue that makes the paint very unsmooth..

... worst $20 ive ever spent

And dont forget you got to buy the refills to. I have it, and I use it, but I do get some spots on my Hood some times.


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

i have it for a red celica and i love it...it does really wel for cleaning...it makes the sponge blacker than i have ever seen and i wash it once a week...if it is hot just make sure you keep it wet until you get to the drying part then rinse all the water off and that setting for it and it will work
