    Waterless Wash

    I have a company in my building at work that does waterless car washes. I found out that the product they use is Freedom (Freedom waterless car wash).

    The product details guarantee that it will not leave scratches. I'm very skeptical.

    I was curious if anyone has ever used/heard of them?

    You can do a google search to find their website. If you go to the Education section you can read all about how it "doesn't" leave scratches.

    I'll more than likely never use it.

    Not sure about "Freedom" water-les car wash, but I know about 10 years ago my pops and I used to go airport hoppin' on the weekends in his plane, and a common airport we had gone to, had a "Water-less Car Wash" pit along their tarmac. Saw it done on a Cessna 172 one time, and I was amazed the first time I saw it! Then again I was only like 13 or so. I didn't see any scratches. But they're propoganda for it was "rust-free" results. Seeing as how they had rivets holding them together? I guess that was their main point, not sure?

    If it were me, I'd keep washing and buffing like you've been doing. If it ain't broke, don't fix it Your car, your money, do what you want man

    i use "optimum no rinse" aka "ONR" during the winter when it's far too cold for a traditional wash. it works well and does not leave swirls if used correctly. do a search on a detailing forum like autopia, it's highly praised over there by many pros. works great as a quick detailer and claybar lube as well.

    i still prefer traditional washing, but if you live in an apartment complex or it's too cold it gets the job done

    turtle wax ice?


    there's big differences between quick detail sprays, rinseless washes, and waterless washes. the stuff i mentioned was rinseless. good for moderately dirty cars. don't want to use it on a muddy or filthy car, but good for quick clean ups when its too dirty for a quick detail spray.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    I would NEVER go at a car w/out any water. (using quick detailer is a differnt story) ONR is awesome and here is a write up i did on it. I have also used it on salted cars through the winter and it's flawless.
