Auto Right Auto Wash Stick Review and Giveaway
I am a Homeright Brand Ambassador (and sooo happy about that) so they ask me to try products and let you know what I think about them. I brought this Auto Wash Stick home from Haven 2014.
I haven’t mentioned my injured shoulder in a while. Can you believe after 2 years it was finally feeling so much better, until I injured it a couple of weeks ago while I was cutting down a diseased rose bush. As I was using loppers I felt something rip, and now I’m having to rehab it all over again.
So, my point is, that I haven’t physically washed my car in 2 years—I’ve been taking it to one of those $6 automated car washes.
I was anxious to try out my new Car Wash Stick. What’s so great about this little gem, is that you load the stick with your sudsy solution. (a lot like the HomeRight Paint Stick) I don’t have a car wash bucket, so I took it to the kitchen and loaded it with some dish soap solution.
Now, being the rebel that I am, I always feel like I’m smart enough that I don’t need to read directions. Have you heard the old saying “do as I say, not as I do”?
As I’m writing this post, and reading the packaging—I see that you simply put the mitt into the bucket and load it with solution by pulling back on the handle. Duh! Those Homeright-AutoRight people are brilliant! (but of course they are filling it from a bucket outdoors, not their kitchen sink) hehehe
Even though I didn’t load it the right way, it still worked. I think I’ll need to buy me a bucket.
Now, I know that you all probably know how to wash a car, but just in case you don’t, I’ll hit the high points for you below:
Tips for washing a car:
- Gather everything you will need, including you’re HomeRight Auto Wash Stick and EZI Dry , bucket of soapy water, hose, clean towels, or a chamois for drying
- Move your vehicle to a shady spot to avoid “spotting”
- Give your vehicle a quick rinse before starting. It will help loosen dirt and debris
- Using the Wash Stick start at the top and work your way down. If your vehicle is extremely dirty, you may want to start with windows and mirrors.
- With the Wash Stick, you will be done in only 5-10 minutes tops. I suggest wetting your vehicle again (to avoid spotting) and then begin drying doing windows and mirrors first.
- Loan your Wash Stick to your neighbor across the street because he noticed how quick and easy it was to use
Yes, my neighbor walked over and was so impressed with how easy and quick I washed my car that he decided to wash his car. He really loved the AutoRight Wash Stick, and plans to pick one up for himself—or borrow mine, we’ll see!
After he was finished, he removed the synthetic lambswool mitt and rinsed it out. I left it off until everything was dry, then I stored it for next time, when I’ll follow the directions and dip the mitt into my new bucket. The only thing I would change about the Auto Wash Stick (If I were an engineer) is to make it swivel. I sort of just expected it to swivel, however it’s so lightweight and easy to maneuver, that it really works great as it is, you will seriously love washing your car.
