No Scratchy Mitt
California Car Duster Company has taken advantage of micro-fiber technology to develop a mitt that can be used to wash and dust any vehicle. The MicroMitt can absorb 7 to 10 times its weight in water, which provides more suds reducing washing time. When dry and clean, the MicroMitt can be used to dust vehicles. The ultra-soft fibers have angled edges that effectively pull in dust and dirt. After use, the Mitt can be washed and rinsed.

Free All deep-penetrating oil will spread into rusted or frozen parts, freeing them in seconds with ease. Free All is more than a lubricant because it has special ingredients that actually eat rust all in a silicone-free formula. You can buy it in 12-, 6-, and 2-ounce cans, and the company claims it won't damage painted surfaces.
