    I really, really, really need to wash my car in my driveway. There's one problem: I have no water source. I vaguely remember that you have some sort of waterless setup. How is this possible? Also, I would greatly appreciate the exact name of the products you use. Don't worry, it's just for me - I'm not going into the business. :p Also, I apologize if this question is beneath you, but you are the only guy that can give me a real answer.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    don't blink.

    fill up a bucket with water in your house....bring it outside & use a sponge & the water to clean your car. then use a cleaner wax.
    i did that for a while, since i can't get my car in my driveway anymore cause of the height. heh.

    i do it in the parking lot at hotel's before shows. the afternoon before. then wax & whatnot when it gets dark out. then i'm good to go for the show the next day.

    this is my car in the parking lot before a show after i did that. you can't see much of it, but you can see how reflective the little bit of the fender & fascia you can see are...

    Click on the link to their Quick and Easy Wash. It isn't waterless, but only uses a gallon of water and there is no need to rinse. It will not scratch your car-I've been using it nearly 9 years on mine and my customer's cars.

    Here is some techinical information about it:

    The answers are from a Champion (the manufacturer of the product) representative:

    Where does the dirt go?

    The best answer I can give you is "into the towel or wash mitt and then into the bucket." The agents in Quick & Easy Wash are a blend of Surfactants, surface active agents in lay persons terms. These agents are already in use, and have been, in traditional car washing products used in both, hand wash and line wash systems. So the science is not new or unique, just the application. What sets our product apart from the crowd is mostly the lack of SUDS, amongst other and various and sundry other subtleties.

    Suds are an unnecessary byproduct of soap. When Quick & Easy Wash is used in the washing process the suds are eliminated and the surfactants do the work. Part of the work they do is to envelope or suffocate the surface. Two things happen, the electrostatic or chemical bond between the dirt solids and or hydrocarbon solids (this covers most of the soils found on cars) is broken. Next, these soils are enveloped or wrapped and trapped into the surfactant and then into the washing media such as a towel or wash mitt. At rinse time, the towel is plunged into either a clean bucket of water ( using the two bucket method ) or back into the Quick & Easy Wash. In either case the same is true, the dirt solids succumb to the rinsing motion and use gravity to fall out of the washing media and fall to the bottom of the bucket. You can see this if you look into your bucket after doing a wash job.

    Definately true-I've wondered why there was always dirt at the bottom of the bucket when I finished, now I know!


    How come it doesn't scratch?

    In order to address potential scratching, the product contains a element that crosses the lines between polymers, lubricants, and waxes. It is true that if you bear down on a wet cloth over a dirty surface you will get scratches. However, our products make up will help to minimize the occurrence. So don't press down hard, with any washing product. Let's face it, scratching can occur even on a totally clean surface with a poor selection of washing media. Chose and dedicate washing cloths or mitts to a specific task and use them for nothing else. My current best pick for washing media is material called Microfiber, it is easy to find and we are working presently with an importer/manufacturer to bring it to our line of products, but that's another topic for another time.


    Additional information:

    The link should take you to another link that will direct you to a distributer in your area. A 16 oz bottle is about $10 and will wash your car 16 times. I pay $35 for a gallon.

    You just wash a section at a time, then remove most excess water with one towel, then finish drying with another. Just a caveat-it will take 2-3 times using it to really get the hang of it.

    Thanks Scott, but that company is extremely old fashioned. They dump you off to other places to buy their product and I can't drive 60 miles just to buy this.

    :sad2:

    I might just fill up 4 buckets of water and try it that way..

    I am trying to work a deal with them to provide samples of the wash and their protectant. If they can set something up, I will send you some.

    In any event, if you want to try the product, e-mail me at [email protected] and I can pick some up and send it to you.
