Nice write up Phil, love your use of products. How does Iron Cut compare to Iron X. I love Iron X but man does it stink.

I love your Uber towels as well, still have tons left from my big purchase last year,

iron cut isn't so bad, the biggest difference is its cheaper and does the same thing as x ; )
