Mr. Clean Auto Dry Possible??

I think the only benefit is the filtered rinse water. Can you use regular soap and use the Mr. Clean sysem and get a spot free rinse?

I use shower water in buckets to rinse and get almost no spots when it dries. I think soft water (with little metal/mineral content) won't cause spotting.

Exactly, I use it to rinse the car off not wash the car. The only good thing about that system is the rinse, it leaves no spots with a regular wash.

You'll notice, after a few days of using the Mr. Clean Auto Dry product, that there is a thin film all over your car. It will be most noticeable on the headlights and windows (rainbow effect).

I'll stick to my absorber. I prefer to hand wash and scrub off the dirt and hand dry. Let's me go over the car from head to toe checking for problems, dings, etc.

If I wanna quickie, Ill goto the car wash and use their spot free crap and absorber it to dry it anyhoo.

The only thing I like about it is the water sprayer. The rest is crap! Even the auto-dry thing -- leaves a film all over my sheit. Waste of money!

You DO still have to wash your ride with a wash mitt or a sponge, with the Autodry. It's just a big gizmo that holds the soap and filter and has a 3-way selector on top.
