    Looks pretty cool. Wonder how much it costs?

    I'd be deathly afraid to clean auto paint like he did though with a microfiber.

    I agree, I would not use just steam. You need to rinse off the fine gritty grains of dust, mud and sand first.

    Looks cool. The way those vapor steamers are used on a floor I thought he was going to use it that way on the paint. But he was using it on an angle with a gun, not a direct shot and nor was he keeping it on one spot for long. So I think user error could come into play here. He comes from an auto detail background, so I think he knows if it scratches paint or not. Pretty safe used the correct way.

    I thought he was going to spray Jay at one point. lol.

    Jay looked totally bored.

    I didn't mean the steamer would scratch the paint. The microfiber on the other hand scares the bejesus out of me. They hang on to the most minute particles that can potentially cause abrasions. I never wash my car with one for that reason.

    That steamer seemed to have a lot of pressure so I'm curious why he didn't use it like a hose to just wash the dirt off. If he had some kind of wide mouth nozzle to create more of a fanned out spray I bet he could 'hose' that car off in no time.

    Jay always looks like that with a lot of his videos. He's funny that way. I think he gets bored with the entire filming process. It's not organic. I am sure there are takes and retakes etc. which to me sounds extremely boring.

    I agree the microfiber would or could potentially scratch surfaces. But I think their main selling point on that machine is the environmental aspect. Less water usage and chemicals as well. California is drought country.

    He's got a big brain too so he's probably like, "Hey kid I seen this all before, pickup the pace."

    I've never seen his garage before, is that a painting behind them that looks like a train station?

    No doubt the angle was water conservation. I still think if it could produce a wide spray it it wouldn't use much more if any water. Plus he's got that thing blasting away as I remember while he's wiping with the microfiber. So if he got rid of the micro fiber step I think he could save more water there too.

    I think he was using tap water so the TDS could be high and would leave spots. The microfiber cloth helps to prevent spots by drying and wiping away the soil.

    Jay has the garage of garages. He must have so many toys in there. Truly a man cave. lol.

    It has been several years since anyone has been on this thread, but I assure you that there is nothing better for cleaning "Clean" cars then the Optima Steamer(R)

    If you are in Southern California and want to try it for yourself just shoot me a message and I will bring one out for you to try!

    We had the optima steamer but ended up selling it and wanted something better. We ended up purchasing a Lamborghini powered steamer called Fortador . Fortador is a steam machine company which the boiler system is made by Lamborghini's ac/heating division. It is diesel powered, has a touchscreen menu system, 16 bar, 200 degree, 2 chemical injection systems, option to have three techs , and comes with a vacuum set to do carpet or upholstery . You can set it to wet vapor steam or dry steam depending on your situation. We use it for clinics, indoor trampoline parks, gyms, kid play areas
