"Use our waterless car wash almost anywhere, anytime as long as the paint surface is not excessively soiled, muddy or caked with sand"

If it's none of the above, my car is clean...

They do have a 100% money back guarantee, I guess you could give it a shot. Looks more like a quick detailer rather than much else, 23$ for a quick detailer seems pretty steep, but I don't know how that stuff works so I can't really say.

I dispute both it's efficacy and it's benefits to the environment. Water is environmentally friendly

Except your paint.

And what do you do with the towels you use to apply/wipe off the stuff? You have to wash those, using water as well.

Looks like some good old fashioned detail spray, repackaged to highlight its environmental credentials.

I put my car on the lawn. Wash it using only water 99% of the time and the lawn stays green.



How much more eco friendly can you get?

Probably only by using biodegradable home-made of old garbage soap using rain water to rinse?.. Ohh and scrub using your own hair

No I just use a wash mit. It is simple to do small things like wash your car on the lawn once a week to water it in the evening. I use a bit of dish soap if my car is salty, otherwise water works a treat if you wax your car every 3 months.
