The Water Sprite Plus is a scientifically engineered super-chamois out of Holland. The improvements? High absorbency, not only of water, but acts like a sponge towards dirt and grime pulling them safely away from the car’s surface. (Works just as well on windows and other surfaces.) .Maintaining consists only of rinsing. The Water Sprite Plus can be stored wet (!) in the canister it came in, without fear of mildew or bacteria. Unlike genuine chamois, you CAN use it with household chemicals. It doesn’t contain any paper or fabric, but it’s high-tech fibers look and feel remarkably close—an upgraded twist on the traditional chamois.
