Really, really good idea. Can't believe I never thought of it before. You could save so much money on washing supplies. And you could probably even use their paper towels to dry.

Might as well use their stuff with the gas prices being what they are!

I've seen it!

Once on the hood of a black Escapade and once on the nose of a blue Challenger. Made me wince both times.

hahahaha awesome. I heard the more ice scrapped across the car, the less swirl marks? maybe it'll be a new trend

I've seen at least two people do this, to the whole car. And squeegee it dry.

I stood in awe the first time I saw it.

I saw a guy at work with his Porsche Cayman a few weeks ago, that he regularly pays to have detailed, take a blanket out of his trunk and remove the dust from the surface. I was talking to him when he did this, but I decided not to say anything. Good thing it is red and not black.
