OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 14, 2003 The Armor All/STP Products Company began shipping this week new Armor All® Car Wash Wipes, a quick and easy way to clean and shine the exterior surface of your car.
Armor All Car Wash Wipes are soft, thick wipes pre-moistened with a specially designed cleaning formula that safely cleans and shines clear coats. The pre-moistened wipes effectively remove dirt and soil while leaving the car with a shine in half the time of traditional washing. With no water or bucket required, Armor All Car Wash Wipes provide an easy and convenient way to keep your car looking clean without the hassle of ordinary washes.
"Consumers have been enthusiastic about the entire line of Armor All Wipes for the interior of their cars," said Charles Mordy, Armor All brand manager. "Armor All Car Wash Wipes offer the same convenience for the outside of the car. Whether you just want a touch up or you're cleaning the entire car, the wipes make washing simple so your car can look great all the time."
Armor All developed its line of Auto Care Wipes to meet a consumer need for quick and easy solutions to car care. Last year, it launched Armor All Cleaning Wipes, Armor All Protectant Wipes, Armor All Glass Wipes and Armor All Leather Wipes. Each one is designed to address a specific car care need.
New Armor All Car Wash Wipes are available to consumers nationwide and sell for approximately $3.99 at mass merchandisers, auto supply retailers, warehouse clubs and select grocery and drug stores.
