    Anyone seen this? Your thoughts?

    I can't find anything on it on google, but you screw it onto your hose, wash your car with their soap, then use their special rinse and it supposedly drys up on its own without streaks or spots. :dunno:

    $19.95 at Wal-Mart.

    I've seen the ads on TV but I haven't tried it yet. I plan to pick one up pretty soon though.

    It's a spray, isn't it? How could you get it just on windows, wheels and exhaust tips without getting it on paint?

    the problem way that the sponge thing would leave hairline scratches in the paint not that the chemicals were bad for paint

    I think you're the one thinking of something else, there's no sponge with this product.

    I think you should heed your own advice. "Can't hardly?" :ugh2:

    You could always take one for the team and try it yourself.

    You guys are forgetting the most important part; it has a pure water filter in the nozzle which filters out all the crap that makes water spots in the first place, so when you rinse your car, you are actually hosing it with clean water. No more feces on your car! Im going to try it in spring.

    I've got one as well.

    Very impressed, specially for the price. It works very well. Seems pretty solid (dropped it while washing it and no damage). It does use quite a bit of soap, but it seems to clean well. I've gotten a lot of comments on the car after it was washed. Drying seems to be spot free depending on if there is shit in the air or not

    I saw it work at the Auto Show. It looks to be really good, but the way the water just slides off during the mist process makes me think that there are chemicals in it. Are these chemicals harmful to the paint? Wouldn't it be easier to just buy a bottle of distilled water and pour it on your car? The water bottle is only like $.50 for 4 Litres.

    I use this product and it has pretty decent results for what it is... some hard to reach places may keep water so you can use a towel and dry it quickly.

    I used this product, personally I don't think the soap provided does a well enough job of getting the grime off so I keep a bucket of water with meguiars soap on the side to dip and rinse out my mitten. Doing this doesn't effect the soaps polymers at all and the water rolls off the same as it normally does.

    oh and if water does happen to stay on the surface no worries, since the water is filtered it evaporates clean without leaving any residue, meaning no water spots. So if you miss a spot no need to rush with a towel.

    I talked to a professional, and he said it was worthless. I tried it, and I agree.
