Mr Clean Autodry

My first experience with the autodry thing by Mr Clean was way better than i expected. I was expecting some spots at least, or a halfass wash job. It was awesome as hell though, really works! If you're lazy, like me, i'd recommend spending $18 and getting it. Just figured i'd post about it since it was so surprising to me that it worked. lol.

It works well. There was no film or oil or whatever on my car. There were still a few spots I had to dry by hand but no where near like before. The windows were spotless. I highly reccomend. Especially if you have hard water in your area.

I used it and it seemed to work pretty well, but you still have to wash the car. A lot of people think that all you do is spray this stuff on the car and let it dry, you still have to wipe it down with soap. But when you rinse it wth this stuff, it works very well, no spots for me.

Nice, now all I need to do is get a hose and place with a spigot to use the damn thing.

Seriously, thanks for the info, it will be on my "to get" list soon!

To avoid oily film, don't over-use filter. Its only good for about 3 washes. Kinda expensive but worth it IMO.

Your better off just buying an inline water filter and using meguiars gold class or nxt car wash. I got to demo it, and it still spots no matter what you do.

clean kit

it comes with the handheld thing, a bottle of starter sopa and a filter thats good for about 3 washes, after that you can buy new filters that work for up to 10 washes, they are really easy to find even in grocrey stores here, also the soap is easy to find also. the filters and soap run around 6 bucks each, not bad considerind thats 10 washes.

it's badass! i love it! i'd recommend it to anyone. i bought mine a couple months ago, saves a ton of time. i had at most, 1-2 places i had to hand dry, and that's because i probably missed spraying it with the filter.

I have mad problems with mine and i think i have read the instructions a dozen times. I dont always get it in the shade which might be a big problem but even when I put the car in the shade it still leaves soo many watermarks and i have to end up using some quick detailer.

I just bought the kit yesterday .. but then found out it's only 3 washes !!! I was thinking after using up the filter i'll just use that little nozzle thing as a normal hose but ppl say it leaves an oily film on the car??? is that for sure what will happen if i overuse the filter?? (i don't care for watermarks I can handdry it)
