I Just Bought the new Mr. Clean Spotless Car Wash



I've seen commercials about this thing for awhile, just never got around to buying one b/c you had to do it online. Well, I went down to Advance Auto Parts to get some stuff to wash my car, and they had them for sale for $10 cheaper than online. Its supposed to take out water spots on your car. You dont have to hand dry it. I'm gonna wash my car in just a little while, so I'll let you know how it works.

Ok, after finishing my car, all I can say is WOW!!!

This thing is worth EVERY penny. When they say that the water "sheets" of the car, they arent lying. Its amazing how it just slides off. And the best part is, it wont strip your wax. The only downside is that it uses a lot of soap to wash the car once. Asdie from that, its perfect. There are NO spots on my car. The soap also gets ride of brake dust very easily. I sprayed my wheels w/ the soap, and barely had to wipe them and the dust came right off. I give it

Here are some pics of the finished job:

Its worth it. I was really happy when it was only $20 in the store. Online, it was $30.

Be careful when you have it on soap spray. It uses it really fast. The best way to do it is first, soak your sponge or whatever in the soapy spray, then spray just enough on your car to cover what you're washing, then turn it off and switch to the normal spray so if it leaks a little, it wont be leaking the soap.

Does this company have some kind of stock.... I bet it will go up, once the public starts buying this product, and it works well...

****Just realized Procter & Gamble (PG) own it, guess i'm not getting the stock....not at $100.00 a share.****

The sell it at Target.

This technology is not new. It just filter's the water using reverse osmosis (Take all the mineral out of the water that cause those nasty water-spots). Car dealerships usually use this, but they use a big machine to do the same job.

I didn't touch it w/ a towel. The only problem for now is that no one sells the replacement filters or refils on the soap...

Yes the Mr. Clean wash works great however the replacement soap cartridge will cost u more than how much you could buy for 1 container of a good wash. Its like buying a sprayer and filter along with 2 (i think) soap cartridges.

Works good if you have the money and are not willing to scrub.

However costs alot if you keep using everytime.

How do you know how much the soap costs? Where can you buy it?

I am not quite sure but I do remember seeing a post on a Car Detailing Forum.

detailcity.com

http://www.detailcity.com/forums/sho...=mr+clean+wash

It isn't exact however pretty accurate. Hope I could help. If I have time I will look later tonight.
