Default Waterless wash

At first I was a bit skeptical about this method of washing the car but after researching and seeing it in person i decided to give it a try.

The manufacturers recommend that the car be clayed and waxed prior to using it so that the contaminants cannot easily bond with the paint. The waterless wash that im using is made by pinnacle and i decided to use this product because it has a carnuba in the solution which gives it an extra shine.



These pics are of my car and it hasn't been washed for almost 2weeks.






These are the after pics and this was done with very little effort.







I'm am extremely impressed with this product.

Pros:
-Cuts down the time needed to wash the car
-No need for a spray on wax since it already has carnuba in the solution
-As long as the microfiber is clean it wont scratch the paint.
-You Can wash the car in direct sunlight and not have to worry about water spots.
-It smells good

Cons:
None so far

Well for a con I would say that since you have to make sure the car is clayed and waxed before using the product, that basically means you have to wash your car with water first to get it clean enough to be clayed and waxed. It's more like a quick wash as it can't replace a water wash in some instances. But still that looks pretty impressive, what's the price on that?

I got it on sale for 10 dollars and then I mix 1oz with 32oz of water. Tomorrow I'm going to try it on my father's car and see how well it does since his car hasn't been clayed or waxed.

So you dilute it down before spraying it? I ask because it looks like it already comes in a spray bottle ready to use.

The bottle has 16oz of fluid and then you mix 1oz with 32ozs of water. The pic is misleading of the bottle with the sprayer.
