Trying to conserve water during the drought? Check out the KozaK Auto DryWash Cloth, a specially treated cotton cloth that cleans without soap and water. It removes dirt and dust and leaves a nice shine.
Although it's not new--KozaK cloths were invented in 1926--the product is timely, considering the water shortage and, in many places, the bans on using water to wash vehicles. One cloth is good for about 50 cleanings; it will not take off tar or other sticky substances.
In Southern California, KozaK Auto DryWash Cloths are available at Fedco. You can also order them from the factory. Two cloths cost $13.95 including shipping and handling.
Write to KozaK Auto DryWash, 6 S. Lyon St., Department A, P.O. Box 910, Batavia, N.Y. 14021; or call the toll-free number, (800) 283-9274, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
