Getting ready to stock up on car care products. Boat docked today with new xiT aboard so its time to get the order in. Should CWB be on the list?

Great question!!!

I purchased the water blade a few days ago and have been trying it out on the shower glass and tiles. It seems to do a great job.

I have not been able to try it on the car as my 2002 325i had to be put into storage a few days after taking delivery. Just can't wait for the winter to be over here.

My winter car is caked in salt on the roads. Time to wash the car tomorrow!!!

I have been searching and reading up about the other cleaning products. So far from what I have read, P21S seems the way to go.

Other products purchased todate:

California car duster
Zymol shampoo

It is real difficult to purchase all the products here in Canada that are available in USA so easily. The exchange and customs clearance kills us.

CWB works fantasic on shower tiles&glass. Never tried it on the car-- I use the "ABSORBER" ! :cool:

CWB, couple Chamois or synthetic Chamois for finish up, and a good " 5 min. detail spray" applied with cotton makes your car look like you just waxed it after every wash.

Edit: I might add, use a straight nozzle on the hose, if your car is waxed, the water will sheet off and if you do it right, you won't use the CWB except for the windows.

This is my method for washing and drying a car:

1) Wash car
2) Immediately after, blow dry by driving 100mph on interstate.

I have one and NEED it too. Cleaning a black car is torturous in the summer with just a chamois.

Works great! I noticed Costco had a twin pack of CWBs for 19.99. It included the full-size one that I use on my car and a smaller one about half the size.

I've had a duster lying around for years too. Used it on the T-bird when I used to show it. Tried it recently on the 330i. As long as your just picking up light dust, it works great. A quick once-over in the morning after sitting in the garage overnight. That type of use.

I haven't tried CWB yet, but some people are very happy with it and some others have reported CWB causing swirls.

It's a squeegy type device that allows you to sweep the water off your car. Like window-washers use. Except it's made w/ medical grade silicone. Do a search on google. You'll see plenty of them.

Thanks!

Being a car washing addict for the six months of the year when it is possible to wash my cars, this looks like something to have. I wonder if anyone has seen it for sale in Europe (?).

Silcone is cool ...
