I have one and use it.... It's all about how clean you get the car before you do the final rinse... water spots usually are caused by minerals in the water. The filter in the Mr. Clean helps take a lot of that out, but if you don't get the car really really clean before you rinse it you will see the left over dirt, and if your water is really mineral laden the filter might not be able to trap all of them.

I have one, the dries by itself is complete BS. Now I still use it for the filtered water to rinse my car, but I don't like the fact their soap does not allow the water to bead up.

I have one and it works to a certain extent. The fact that you can mix the water and soap together is cool and time saving. The filter works pretty well. It doesn't hurt to check on it, cause it takes a while for it to dry. I go out and dry whatever water accumulates.

I got one too and was disappointed. It's convenient, but that's about it. It doesn't put out enough pressure to blast away dirt and road grime. I avoid the water spots by hitting my car with Quick Mist auto detailer after drying. It only takes a couple more minutes and the difference is noticeable.

Another good one is Turtle Wax ICE quick detailer...works like a charm for waterspots, but doesn't really put a sheen on the finish.

i use it for the water filter but the "drying" chemical is utter BS it kinda works but when it hits your rotors at all you get a lot of surface rust too... not horrible but not great at the same time.. plus mine kinda leaks a lot for $30 what the hell... i useit for the filter mostly
