okie time to be cruel about this product hehehe...
First thought before buying it: micro fiber + dirt + wiping around the car= scratches... well i think it works kinda like a clay bar... the liquid is the lubricant and the micro fiber is the clay... the only thing is that you shouldnt rub in too hard but you can do spotting.... so the more damp the towel is the better so you wouldnt let a dry dirt glide on top of the clear coat that can scratch your car... on the side note when buffing the haze dont put too much pressure on the towel or it will leave fine scratches same thing when buffing your car using waxes... i think i cover the scratch area :P

How much did i use for the whole car? half a bottle of the sprayer so its about 4 oz and if you have a 32 oz bottle that should last you about 8 washes lets do the math here after your initial pay of xx.xx dollars the 2nd bottle of 32 oz will cost you 29.56 divide that by 8 = 3.70 + taxes and shipping about 5 dollar a wash :P now now i didnt do the tires nor the windows but i guess the used towel can clean those off :P because by the time you are done the towel will be soaked...

how long did it take for me to clean my whole car? = 30 mins :P

pros:
-its pretty good if you live in an apartment or similar housing.
-saves you money because you wouldnt use water/wax/soap
cons:
-you must be familiar on how much pressure you are putting in your towel but that should be natural if you regularly wash and wax your car.
-it can remove your cover up wax ie turtle wax magic color

Tips on how to use dri wash ultra ion
- wet your towel first with the dri wash solution just a quick coat on the micro fiber.
- do one section at a time ie door, 1/3 of the hood, half of the bumper
- dont let it dry so dont do it under the sun and windy area
- dont rub in too hard
- always give your bottle a little pump before you move to the next area
- use 4 micro fiber towel 2 for applying and 2 for buffing "do half of the car then change towel then do the next half :P"

Final word its a good product i definitely recommend it but for a very very dirty car i suggest you spray off the heavy dirt before you use this product :P
Final thought about the product: i think the 32 oz will last me a month because i think this should be use twice a week on a sat and wed :P to obtain a maximum result.
a follow up review after 3 days

question about the product
- can i use this on glass and plastic and rubber?

Glass yes, platstic and rubber no,

Now if you used half a bottle, you used way to much. Next time you can try the application with a cotton terry towel as well (thats what i use, as the microfiber grabs when its wet. When buffing off it does need a bit of time to cure the microfiber should have not much resistance at all when buffing, now in extreme heat and sun, yes small sections does work best. You can use just 2 towels if you want as well, thats all i ever use. you can fold it in 4's and just move it around as well.

Try to remember a small amount is all you need, if you do use this 2 times a week you will use less and less, after 3 coats or so you will probably be using less then an ounce (i use 1oz on my ranger) and a little less on the Versa

Also don't fill the applicator up all the way, dont fill it more then half, that gives you a little more pressure, and a finer mist allowing you to use less product.

about the pressure i didnt realize that it till im done with half of the car hehehe it was spraying blotted water instead of mist lol so i started to pump it again every section that i do :P and yeah its very hot here in cali even on a shaded area so its very good to do it per section.... Thanks for the tip :P

after a hard rain yesterday my car was a little mess this morning... so i took out the dri wash and sprayed a little on the towel then sprayed the top of the versa and i wiped off the dust lightly and it got it out quickly i guess the first coat of driwash was good... and i only used probably an ounce or two and it only took me 13 mins to do the whole car... so my bottom line if you will USE THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME i suggest you wash and dry your car before you apply your first coating then after that just use driwash its pretty awesome... first time i used this i used 4 ounces/30 mins and now i probably used 1~2 oz/13mins... so yeah try this driwash and youll be amazed i know i did hehe but only after the second coat the first coat is a mess thats why its good to wash your car first so you can have a good thin layer of driwash protection on it ^_^v
