How would this compare to the Nanoskin towel. Notice everyone is jumping on the "nano" terminology to the point where its like "turbo"
NANOSKIN Autoscrub 6 inch Pad - Better and Faster than Claying
Wow is all I can say about this new tool and new technology. I believe this will change the way most pro detailers and DIYers will prep their cars. This is truly a time saver and will pay for itself after a couple detail jobs. We have spent in some cases 1-2 hours claying and prepping a midsize sedan (in rough shape) we recently tested the AutoScrub on an Audi S8 and we were finished in about 15 minutes! You really won't believe this until you try it yourself. The AutoScrub will make you leave your clay bar behind.
NANOSKIN AutoScrub works fast and achieves professional results with the new advanced rubber polymer technology, which replaces the use of clay bars.
A dual action orbital polisher is required. AutoScrub will safely and easily removes paint over spray, water spots, tree sap, rail dust and other bonded surface contaminants from the surface of automotive paint, glass, moldings and plastic.
AutoScrub works great with your favorite detail spray or clay lubricant. Unlike the clay bar, the AutoScrub can be cleaned by simply rinsing off the accumulated contaminates with water. If you drop the AutoScrub on the ground, no worries, just rinse the sponge pad clean and you're ready to keep using it.
AutoScrub allows for sturdy and controlled handling, unlike clay bars where constant reshaping is required.
- Lasts up to 4 times longer than clay bars
- Glides on & off easily for a slick finish
- If inadvertently dropped on shop floor, simply rinse clean
- Up to 50-60 uses before you need to replace it
1. Thoroughly wash vehicle free of dust, sand, and dirt.
2. Mist sufficient detail spray or clay lubricant onto the surface evenly.
3. Polish the surface with dual action orbital polisher using light pressure (Low Speed).
4. Wipe off residue and move on to compound and polishing or even go straight to your last step.
- Sufficient lubrication is crucial to the AUTOSCRUB application.
- DO NOT use water
- DO NOT use with rotary polisher.

I would love to see a before and after shot of an in need of prep black panel and a before and after of an already perfected black panel.
Then come back and let us know which is faster. I can see the larger one on a pc being faster but the 3" on a complete car ... not buying it.
My take would be the smaller one is made for getting into the areas the larger one won't get into.
The 3" pad, while not ideal for a whole car, is still about the same surface area as a piece of clay in hand. So all in all I'd bet the pad is still faster.
Still lovin the towel BTW.
So far so good, only caveat is I'm using more detailing spray than usual w/ a claybar but the time saved is worth it. Sucks having no steady shade so I'm working around the sun.
The adams detail spray smells awesome, rivals Duragloss carwash.
how does this thing do with bugs?
im not talking like a bumper caked full of bugs without prep work.
like the couple splatters that are still there after bug sponge/initial prep wash.
i usually find myself going over the front bumper mirrors hood and windshield even after prep/decon to get bugs that are stuck good.
im def willing to try this product. im normally in 1.5hours of prep/decon at work on cars that arent very hammered. most of the time spent is de bugging/claying rail dust hard water sap poop marks
id love t cut that time in half
i think ill order one tomorrow.
did you say this will work on a flex? i have the 5.5 inch backing plate and use 6" pads all the time.
oh and does anyone have any expierence with mold spores???
little black dots that kinda look like tar but its not.
ALL of our cars at work get mold spores i think because of our landscaping.
huuuge pita and can really only come off with clay
if this new product can tackle those little bastard dots i will switch over to it no questions.

oh well, it still looks WAY better than before and i'm not willing to put in the time right now to go back over the whole car.
but the nanoskin worked great!
great to hear the feedback.
as for the bugs on the mirrors etc, it does well on them clearing out what's left after you remove most with a bug and tar remover.
Last weekend was the first time I was able to use the Autoscrub on the full car. I used it on the windshield and it did wonders there. I couldn't believe how easy and quick it was to do the whole car. Took less than 20 minutes and the paint felt like glass after being Autoscrubbed.
I couldn't be happier with the results. Sorry clay, but you will only see the light of day when I have to take care of the hard to reach spots.
