Do products from infomercials really work?

As part of a series "As Seen On TV," "The Early Show"'s Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, Russ Mitchell and Dave Price picked their favorite ones and put them to the test.

Smith chose "Fix It Pro," which promises to fix scratches, knicks and dings on any car.

Price chose the "Windshield Wonder," which is supposed to make cleaning windshields and side and rear windows faster and easier.

Smith and Price demonstrated the products on a New York City tour bus as well as a beat-up car in the plaza.
