    Default Spot free?

    I'll let you know.

    I just washed the car using one of these, that I bought the other day. I'm a little sceptical as to whether it works, but it has a one year money back guarantee, so what's to lose, eh!

    For a quick 'splash and dash' they work really well - especially the spot free dry thing. The rinse setting is pants as it just sends a solid jet of water onto the car - a spraygun attachment/power washer is much better.

    One word of advice - DON'T try and polish the car straight after using it. Whatever is in the shampoo/spot free filter (deionising stuff etc) causes all the little fibres from your polishing/application cloths to stick to the body like s**t to a shovel causing untold aggro!! I found that out the hard way!!

    Drying the car........ what ever next?

    Car wash and drive home to dry, that's the way.

    Thats it mate, if your going to go to the hassle of unravling the hosepipe, getting a soapy bucket for the sponge bit, you may as well just dry the car yourself. Try using one of the rubber blade type tools that a lot of companies make now. Really helps. Also, dump your chamios (that you cant wash properly and is full of bits of fine dirt) and buy a drying towel or water magnet from Meguiars. A huge absorbant cloth. People are quite negative about them till theyve actually seen one used or tried one themself. Ive slowly got my brother converted lol now he doesnt look back.

    Its a Huge absorbant cloth that you basically just use as you would a chamois. I can do a whole car, (after ive used a rubber blade on it) without squeezing teh water out. I then shove it in the washing machine after a few uses, safe in the knowledge im not scraping fine bits of dirt over my car that have become trapped on the surface of a chamois. It all depends on how serious you are about keeping your paint in A1 condition. Things like sponges, chamios and some off the shelf polishing cloths all do their bit to creating spider webs and swirls on your car.
