Never heard of this product and so far not tried any waterless washes although I do use a rinseless wash. For very light cleaning these products are becoming more and more popular. Post your views once you have tried it

Intrigued in this waterless system but how does it not scratch paintwork.

No idea but I would never dream of just applying and wiping away............... Seems madness.

It must work as people make a living out of using this stuff.

If applied properly and car isn't filthy, it works pretty well. Probably no riskier than dragging a cheap sponge across grit and dirt.

Many cars "look clean", but will harbour damaging specks that when rubbed over, could make minute scratches. I cannot see how this can work and frankly would not use it unless I had washed and rinsed the car thoroughly first, so making it pointless in using the product at all?

See if I can describe the product.

Very milky and feels like poorboys QD.

The smell is like AG HD wax, can certainly smell the wax.

There is no way in hell and for as long as I have a hole in my face (ha you thought I was going to say something else) I will never use it on a dirty car. Shall test as a QD.

So it has been tested.......

Its in the bin............. Strips wax and removes glaze so I shall have to strip the wax off and do it all again

Oh well...

Just ordered some Dragons Breath and Z8

Just seen this used on ideal.tv and it's looks a good idea but I notice they are using it on an old 99 Vauxhall Astra not a new Alfa or Merc! I won't be risking my new ride with this as you would need a lot of cloths.

Dragons Breath is a seriously good fallout remover. I've found that you use a little more as its more of a gel than a liquid.
The best one I've found so far is Bilt Hamber Korrosol.
