Eco Drift - mobile car wash & valet...

Some people at work have arranged a "charity" event where these guys Eco Drift - Waterless car wash & valeting services UK. Car park hand car wash, Mobile valeting and fleet car cleaning services in Hampshire, Portsmouth, Hayling Island, Porchester, Fareham will be coming in and cleaning cars... I don't really trust waterless systems but I find it hard to explain to other people why... is it that bad?

Will they be ok?

I'm still not convinced about waterless systems.

I think waterless wash has vastly improved over the last couple of years and should be safe, if done by a professional that is.

Some people get caught out by thinking that quick detailers are waterless washes so the results and the damage to the paint put them off.

It all boils down to what you feel comfortable with though

I wouldn't let one near my car.
I've read up as much as I can about them and nothing has yet convinced me that they're safe, especially on soft paints like the stuff they use on Alfa's.

I wouldnt mind one near my car, but thats up to personal choice. Used to use waterless wash without any more damage than normal washing
