Anyone have any experience with this , think it's made by turtle wax . It's sort of a nozzle with a filter and a special soap .

i haven't used that brand but i have the mr clean spotfree system, it works as long as the filter is new and has maybe less than 5 or 6 uses (maybe my tap water is junk.) I tried it on my black 03 hd crew cab and i must say it worked well, you have to use the soap that is specified otherwise it doesn't work well.

I have the Mr Clean and it works well but I have not found a nozzle that does not leak all over the place.

Thanks for the feed back. Guess I'll give it a try , I need something for those quick winter washes so I remember what color it is .

Spots are minerals contained in the water that is left behind after the water has evaporated. Rinsing with rain water works for me. I catch a 300 gal tank at a time behind my shop and pour in a bottle of Jet Dry (for dishwashers) for that squeaky clean, spot free shine. :grd:

The only problem with the Mr. Clean is that you have to make 100% sure you rinse the unfiltered water off with the filtered water and that can take some time on these big trucks. You're not going to get a good quality wash in 10 minutes.

I found them to be a waste of time and money.
The "spotless" rinse at the handwash place works good for a quickee, but the Mr.Clean just didn't cut it.

I use the Mr. Clean system on my black crew cab dually. No spots at all, I won't wash it without one, great product.

:exactly: I bought one of the original ones and it took forever to wash my truck the correct way with it. The filtered spray was just a trickle so I had to hold it on each section for minutes at a time to completely wash away all the unfiltered water. I finally got fed up with it and threw it away and went back to hand drying. IMHO hand drying was quicker. It did leave a spot free shine, but was very time consuming. The new one's may have a better spray now, but I thought the original one was junk! Just my 2 pennies! :)

Received one as a Christmas present. Haven't tried it yet. Currently use Blue Coral or other automotive detergent. Bought a big soft bristle push broom and use it for scrubbing down the vehicle. Works great and takes about one-third the time to wash the whole thing. Let it air dry for a bit and then chamois. A little apprehensive about all the car wash devices but will try the Mr. Clean once or twice and see how it works. May be something to add to local landfill.

I too had one of the originals. The rinse took forever and I didn't like the residue it left on my paint. Went back to hand washing and drying. I'm sure they have improved some what since they were introduced. :)

In winter if it gets so bad I can't stand it anymore I'll stop at the quarter fed spray wash then dry it off in the garage, hit it with a little Meguiar's Quick Detailer and I'm good.

jet dry works great just put it in your wash bucket and wash and then spray it off but the best way to get a spot free wash is to not use a nozzle and the water just sheets of and makes drying a breeze

That's a good tip that I'll have to try next time.

My Mr. Clean worked great last summer if I pulled the truck out of the sun to let it dry. I'll have to try the Jet Dry trick this year...

Mr. Clean, don't wash without it! Seriously, I have not dried a vehicle in a year, but the soap and filter are the keys. It has been a great product.
