Default Waterless Wash & Wax.

Been hearing good reports about some of these car cleaning products so decided to give them a go, opted for this one:

Waterless Car Wash and Wax Cherry Cleaner Polish 3 x 500ml & 2 microfibre Free | eBay

A bit more expensive from Amazon:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00P806X...2d9b38c53c73_S

Anyone used them, or anything like it?

not for me unless the car isnt all that dirty to start with and you just want a bit of shine brought back.
maybe if the car has a very light dust after a rain shower or something but not after a week or so of dirt build up.

at the end of the day the dirt you are wiping off with the cloth is staying on the cloth as you wipe the car all over. unless you rinse in a bucket after every panel or half panel.

a neighbour uses waterless wash by me and it wasn't swirled when he got it but 3 or 4 month of waterless soon gave it swirls all over. uses microfibres as well.

each to their own.

Just been watching some youtube videos and it appears no worse than what you can do with a normal wash?

Washing a car you pre rinse as much dirt off as possible first with snow foam. Rinse then use 2 buckets. One to clean the dirty mitt and then get new car shampoo water mix from the other bucket.

They do make a car look decent if you don't have the time but it isn't good for the bodywork long term will produce swirls etc. Videos only really show what they want the consumer to see.

One guy (independent) been doing it for years without a problem.

Suppose i will use a mixture of the two, proper wash and waterless from time to time?

I use Optimum no rinse.
Sometimes.

Rather wash it properly to be fair, but then I like the faff

This guy on youtube has his own views on waterless washing, the scratches, the need to conserve water and so on, it's one opinion.
