I've seen that mr clean thing on the shelves but I couldn't see using a no dry item if I still have to dry the car. I prefer to use a microfiber wash mitt, and chamios to dry.
I find that I have to dry the car to get that mirror shine.
I use mostly Meguiars - gold polish wax, quick spray wax, quick interior deatiler, leather care, hot rims, deep crystal car wash (and so on) and some Black Magic items tire shine, rim brush etc.
Sorry to reply to an old post, but I do have some experience on using the Mr. Clean AutoDry.
I own a white Milan, so not many things show up to begin with, but after using it, I had little to no drying to do. It also rained that day and the water sheeted off. It still looked like it was just washed with no water spots.
If you are curious, I say give it a shot. It costs less than $20.
I bought the Mr. Clean AutoDry system over a year ago... I actually went to use it last week for the first time in probably a year... Now I see why I stopped using it on my Focus. It never fully dries my car. It leaves water streaks. And yes, I have a brand new filter and followed the directions exactly the way they're printed.
I haven't found a "good" alternative to a handwash. (If one even exists).
I tried the Zipwax car wash stuff. I didn't expect it to work very well, but holy crap, the water just beads right off after the final rinse. Pretty impressed. After Dupont car wash soap with teflon, that's the best car wash soap I've ever used. I know people will say, "what about Maguiar's and Mother's?" That stuff works really well also, but for where I live (lots and lots of bugs,grasshoppers, etc...) the Dupont shit works great at removing them without using chemicals like Goo-Gone, Turtle Wax bug and tar remover,etc... Sorrry about going off topic, No, I haven't used the Mr. Clean Autodry.
Replying to an old topic once again, but I use the Mr Clean Auto Dry system. I've used it since I had my 2002 Jetta. I just use it to spray soap on the car and rinse it off. I find that the filters are too expensive and don't last long at all. I use Meguiar's soap too. But what I've noticed that people do, is they just spray soap on the car and rinse it off then use the filtered water. Then they complain that the car is still dirty. I explain to them that they still have to use a wash mitt to get the dirt off and then they get pissed.
