Just bought one of these from Halfrauds for £20, gonna give it a try... Anyone tried it?

Meant to be really good, providing you spray off the big chunks of crud first it leaves the car dry without using a chamois...

A friend has just got one, he raved on and on about it, that was three weeks ago. used it once been in the cupboard ever since.
I believe the products to use with it in comparison to others are expensive!!!

For cleaning the bathroom floor yes?

I can't believe anybody would use a bathroom cleaner to do the car?

tried it last week on a black van - and was quite impressed with the end result.
A few streaks showed, but saved 1/2 hour.
I'll not be using it on my car though ;)

Just used it on mine, came out pretty well, better than I can do it by hand anyway, and in the same amount of time (45 mins).

Worth £20 in my opinion.

The kit gives you about 3 washes then you need the Auto Dry Deionised Filters for £4.99, but you'll also want to buy the specific Flash Shampoo which is also £4.99, good for around 10 washes.

£20 for the first 3 washes, £10 for the next 10 washes.

I guess it all comes down to how often you wash your car, for me it's usually monthly so I don't mind the cost, and I hate doing it too!!!

This made me laugh (from their website):
Q: What will happen to my old bucket and drying towels?
A: To be honest, the employment outlook for towels is rather grim. Most will end up streaked with oil before being thrown out. But buckets often find new jobs quite easily. Some will work as paint buckets or mop buckets. Most become holders of things.
