De-ionizing drying free car washer

Someone told me about about this product that they sell at Walmart or places like that. De-ionizing spray which doesn't leave water marks. I was skeptical from the beginning. Someone give me some feedback about the quality of these products. I like the idea of washing/drying the car without making physical contact....less damage to the clear coat.

The mr.clean system does not work well at all. You might want to try a product called CRspotless. I've been using it for a few months now and it works amazing. I use it on the final rinse and let it air dry. Not a single water spot. It's a little on the pricey side, but I'd recommend it for anyone who is meticulous about keeping their cars waterspot free.

Any other suggestions for products that work well?

Are we talking completely spotless? Windows and everything? Cause I've used de-ionized water before when cleaning off boats and they do not work well. Course i doubt the boat had a nice wax on it, but still.

I can second that - I have bought the CRSpotless and have not been using any towels since than
