Brief Review: Sm Arnold Speedy Surface Prep Towel

Good Evening,

I had the opportunity of testing out a Sm Arnold Speedy Surface Prep Towel before they hit the market. Thanks to Rick at Auto Detailing Solutions. I came to Rick for additional supplies and mentioned a car which I was about to clay and polish. I was intrigued with the product and figured it was worth a shot, let me tell you - it was a great decision. I took the prep towel home and tested it on my own vehicles, simply put it was efficient. The prep towel is designed to take the place of the clay bar process. The polymerized rubber worked better than I anticipated. I used Meguiar's Quick Detailing spray for the lube on my first vehicle and Griots Speed Shine on the second, both worked well for moving the towel across the surface. After a few passes I rinsed the towel to remove the contaminates. I was able to achieve a similar result to clay in one third of the time. A few notable benefits:

-Dropping the towel doesn't ruin it (simply rinse in warm water and ring out)
-Molding the towel isn't required
-Fewer passes than clay
-Longer lasting than clay
-Easy to store and carry

You can find the product here:
