im am now using the Mr. Clean auto dry system....i wash it with micro fiber towels. the system works GREAT if done correctly. the trick is to use the un-filtered setting to power-wash all the soap off the car when you are done scrubbing....then rinse it once more using the filtered de-ionized water setting....this does the trick. some people have been complaining about leaving a film....and thats understandable seeing that the directions tell you to rinse the car with the filter setting...and there is just not enough pressure to get the soap off with all the water going through the filter....so once more

soap it up....
scrub it up....
power rinse it....
filter rinse it....
watch your cars paint turn into a sparkling sheet of glass....

PEACE
