Editor's Notes

June 11, 2019:

In evaluating the CarCarez Auto, it became clear that while the brush head itself tends to perform adequately, it’s not compatible with standard pole threads, which has upset many users. We took this model off the list. We also removed the Auto PDR Gun due to availability issues.

In our search for replacements, we focused on versatility, since the list already included a few specialized items. We added the Mofeez Applicator, which actually amounts to a full car wash set when you consider the add-ons included with the two brushes, including a cleaning sponge, a storage box and several cloths and towels for various applications. Given all that comes with it, users find this to be an exceptional value.

The Docazoo DocaPole made the list as well. We wanted to provide a model with an extended pole (one of the size options for this item can reach up to 24 feet in length) for use on large vehicles like RVs and for other household projects that require access to hard-to-reach areas. One aspect users appreciate is the ability of the head to be rotated at an angle, which allows you to get into corners and around curves more effectively than you could with a fixed head.

Special Honors

Adam’s Truck Combo It’s not intended for use on show vehicles, but if you’re looking for a workmanlike model to maintain your everyday car or truck’s fresh appearance, give this one some consideration. It utilizes long, soft nylon bristles for deep cleaning, and it’s simple to lock the handle length into place with the push of a button.
