    Default Don't buy this shietttttt! fuuuu



    went to xcargo and ended up buying this shammy imitator (Zorbeez) bc it was like $10 and I got hooked by billy mays ! IT SHEDS SO MUCH ORANGE AND YELLOW FLUFF while I dry my car and then its like stuck on there... arg (should i throw it in the wash and see if its gonna stop shedding?)


    i need new drying towel.. any recommendations?

    Micro fibre one? (the one make it shine is selling)
    Real Shamwow - does it suck too?
    any other alternatives... i was gonna pick something up at canadian tire tomorrow before i wash my car

    Please do not even buy ShamWow... utter waste of my hard-earned $20 as it leaves streaks and orange/blue fibres all over the car.

    I heard the Absorber is good.

    definitely a +1 on the dehydrator towels! those are by far the best.

    i would advise using the california blade with caution, personally i wouldn't even use it on anything but the windows because if even a tiny spec of something gets trapped under the blade, you would be dragging it along the entire car leaving marks in the clear coat.

    Simoniz has a fancy synthetic one
    can't remember what it's called though.
    I remember it came in blue and pink (?) and also it came in it's own re-useable pkging

    works amazing

    ArmorAll Shammy - you can get it at Walmart. It's decent.
    Absorber is also good, but more expensive.

    -100000 Shamwow or Zorbeez

    The dehydrator towel on eShine is amazing.
    The edges are sewn and rounded and the towel is tagless to prevent scratching the paint.
