Waterless Wash. Many of you may have heard this term, and some may not be familiar with it. Waterless Wash is exactly what the name implies - a method to clean the exterior of your vehicle without the use of a water source. You might be skeptical, or wonder how you can safely wash your ride without the traditional soap, water, Grit Guard or Dirt Lock, bucket, wash pad, and a hose/pressure washer; however, with the right products and technique, waterless washing is a very viable option for many scenarios. In this write-up, we’ll explain exactly “What is Waterless Wash?”, dispel any misconceptions about the technology, cover its use cases and limitations, and compare it to some of our most common spray-and-wipe products in our lineup.
Adam’s Waterless Wash is eco-friendly, and one of its main uses when being developed was to serve as an effective cleaning solution for areas with water restrictions, where you may not be permitted to use soap and water to wash your vehicle. Since there is no water involved, and the chemical is absorbed into microfiber towels, there is no worry about any chemical run-off into drainage systems, lawns, and so on. This makes Waterless Wash a perfect option for those living in an apartment complex or water-restriction areas that may not permit traditional car washing. Collector cars are another excellent use for Waterless Wash. On older and vintage vehicles, many owners do not want to use a hose and water on them, to prevent rust inside of body panels where drain channels may be clogged from decades of use. In fact, Waterless Wash is how our team safely cleans over 1,000 auction vehicles every year at the four Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions around the country!
