What is waterless car wash?

Definition borrowed from Wikipedia.com
A technique used to wash a vehicle without the use of water (also called a waterless car wash). This technique uses a product that contains many different ingredients, including wetting agents , lubricants and protectants. The detergents and wetting agents in the product combine to soften and emulsify surface grime, while a specific blend of fluids and lubricants attach a microscopic layer of protectant to the surface. The protectant is often an extremely rare (and expensive) substance which provides a bonded layer of protection against any remaining abrasive not broken down by the detergents and wetting agents. The protectant often contains extensive cross linked polymers , which make it extremely effective as a car wax or glaze . The product often contains a complex mixture of cleaning elements along with the glaze ingredients. With proper application, the product lifts dirt from the vehicle by emulsification. The product surrounds dirt molecules, lifting them from the paint surface, before you start to wipe. At the same time, the application process initiates the cross chain polymer linking process that results in an extremely shiny, highly protective glaze finish. All this happens very rapidly due to the balance of ingredients within the product itself. The application process does not involve high pressure nor extensive rubbing. The application process also does not require “soaking” – using a high volume of product. When used in compliance with its “directions for use,” the vehicle will shine and water will bead on it.

Why go waterless car wash?

There are many reasons why using a “waterless car wash” product to clean your car, boat, motorcycle and RV is a good idea. Here are a few here:

1. Save Water: According to the EPA, the average person will waste 116 gallons of water while cleaning their car in their driveway. The average stand-alone “car wash” will use over 40 gallons of water per car. This is a lot of soapy grey/ contaminated water going down the storm drain and into the environment. It only takes 2-4 ounces of the Freedom Waterless Car Wash product to clean the average size car. The soiled towels are cleaned in the washing machine and only take a few ounces of soap & water per towel.
2. Save Time: Cleaning your car in your driveway or at the car wash with water takes a lot of time. To Drive to, wait in line, wash and dry will range from 30-60 minutes. Using Freedom Waterless Car Wash, you don’t have to wait in line or drive somewhere to clean it. It can be easily cleaned virtually anywhere/ any time. It is fast. Just spray on, rub in and wipe off. The first time you use it, you will probably use too much product and it may take you 20-40 minutes. After your first couple of uses, it will go faster.

5. Keep the value of your vehicle: These days cars cost are much more than ever and the economic downturn has forced people to keep for a longer period of time.
