There are two different solutions we are going to run through, each using different products:
- Waterless wash: uses no water
- Rinse free wash: uses a small amount of water in a bucket and does not need hosing off.
Let's learn more about each :
In this short video we show you how to waterless wash anywhere, and address common misconceptions and proper technique.
Steps to Waterless Wash:
Make sure to wash your vehicle in a shaded area and that the vehicle is cool to the touch.
Shake well, then spray the product directly onto the surface.
Watch as EcoSmart emulsifies dirt and grime.
Wipe up the EcoSmart and dirt in one direction with a clean microfiber towel.
Buff the area dry with another clean microfiber towel to reveal a high gloss shine.
Work one panel at a time to prevent the product from drying and leaving spots or streaks.
For added shine, follow up with your favorite quick detailer, wax, or sealant.
Rinse Free Wash (Hose-less Wash):
In this short video we show you how to Rinse Free Wash. Rinse free washing best practice is to use two buckets with dirt traps and a quality wash mitt and a small amount of water in the buckets to wash your car. Very little water is used, and the vehicle is not hosed off. Use lots of clean microfiber cloths like the Workhorse, roll slightly as you wipe and use cloths flat folders in quarters, flipping as they dirty to get 8 clean sides per cloth. Have plenty of cloths so you don't wipe across the paint with a dirty cloth. Using two buckets with dirt traps is even more important than normal for rinse free washing. Watch this short video to see how:
Steps to Rense Free Wash:
Shake well and add 2 - 3 oz to 5 gallon bucket.
Wash surface one panel at a time using a premium microfiber wash mitt.
Rinse dirt from mitt in second bucket of clean water, then wring mitt out on the ground or separate catch pan.
Repeat process over entire car until it is clean.
Buff residue dry with a premium microfiber towel, or add a quick detail spray for added shine and reduced chance of streaks.
