Some extol the virtues of the “environmentally friendly” properties of the product, although reading up on many these mainly relate to the fact that it is saving water, rather than the make-up of the product itself.
Others talk up the cleaning properties of the waterless car wash products, although very few seem to go so far as to guarantee not to cause swirl marks on your paintwork.
So far I have resisted these products – but am I being too traditional? I admit we have always believed that for the safest wash possible as much as the dirt and grime should be washed off the vehicle with water, prior to the use of a good quality car shampoo and lambswool (or microfibre) wash mitt.
I agree that where we are talking giving the paintwork a final prep, having been driven to a show, then a good quality detailing spray and microfibre cloth will work wonders to restore the shine, but to do a regular weekly wash with a waterless product makes me a very nervous.
Many of the waterless car wash products claim to contain advanced wetting agents and emulsifiers which are meant to soften the dirt and grime on the car and encase each particle in a microscopic lubricated coating and lifting it from the surface of the paint, ready to be wiped away with microfibre towel or other suitable material.
But can such ingredients really and truly prevent the particle from swirling the surface of the paint as it is being wiped away?
Having had so many approaches I have finally succumbed to the possibility there may be something in the claims made by the manufacturers of these products and will be looking to test one or two over the winter. As soon as I have finished testing I will let you know the results in a further blog post.
