Gleamfire is a car-washing gadget that eliminates the need to rinse a sponge or cloth. The design idea came from John Lohavichan. Instead of rinsing in a bucket, Gleamfire uses a micro-fiber mitt and a plastic tube and pump system. This system uses powerful jets to blast dirty water off of a sponge. Gleamfire uses 1.5 gallons of water per wash compared to the average car wash that uses between 25 and 100 gallons.

This system not only blasts off dirty water, it also removes tiny dirt and rock pieces that can result in scratches on the vehicle being washed. The pump system continuously ensures that the micro-fiber mitt has suds on it which ultimately uses less soap.

This handy car-washing gadget eliminates the need to reach into a dirty bucket of water and it can also be used in the winter in a garage. As it continuously blasts away dirt and old water there is no need to do laundry or throw away rags and sponges.
