Quick Review: CarPro Fast Glass Towel

So I don't know about you but interior windows are horrible to clean for me. I feel with microfibers you can never clean the base of the dash and if you have anything mounted to the windshield, like a radar detector, and everything gets in the way. It's also harder to make sure no smudges or streaks exist without getting out of the car and checking. Well here's a different way of doing the interior windows.

In comes the Fast Glass Towel





So first impressions. Is this a paper towel? No, and I tried ripping it, not going to happen. It kind of reminds me of a thick dryer sheet but it can't be ripped. To use this product all you need to do is soak it in hot water, then wring it out.



You don't want this product to be dripping wet when you use it so try to get as much water out of it as you can. Just a dampness is more than enough, after wiping a window you don't want water left behind to prevent water spotting.

Here is a quick results of some fingerprinting on the inside of the windshield.




Results:

Pros:
Awesome for interior windows
No more glass cleaner inside!
Price: $5.65 for 1 $8.70 for 2 from CarPro-US.com

Cons:
Can't use it on exterior windows (I tried it on a small spot and it just doesn't respond well to heavily soiling)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Interesting. So it has to be hot water?

It just says to use water. CarPro recommends warm water for the first use, but from other reviews it's been recommended to use warm water exclusively.

Depending on how bad the interior windows are, which usually aren't bad at all. I'd say multiple times and I'd expect at least a year of use if not more. There was barely any noticeable dirt on the towel after wiping down the windows after the first use.

I think the hardest thing is wringing out enough water, the first time there was way too much left in the towel. You want it where the first wipe leaves some water and wiping back over it removes any water. But there's absolutely no streaking at all.

Edit: Had to rant about the exterior windows, this is no joke less than 24 hours of sitting outside. I'll let the picture do the talking.



This is taken after cleaning 1/2 the windshield.
