    Yep, if done correctly, a rinse-less wash is no more likely to cause damage than a standard wash. The only time I wouldn't use it, without at least a power wash first, is if the car were caked in a lot of mud.

      It won't scratch if you do it correctly. You can get scratches from traditional washing incorrectly too. The video below is what prompted me to try waterless wash 10 years ago, and since then I've been using waterless wash on my daily driver once a week for that long (since 2013). That car only sees a 'real' wash once a year or so if the crevices or wheel wheels get dirty and need to be rinsed you. I still use the Chemical Guys Ecosmart waterless wash (concentrated 16oz makes two gallons which lasts for months) in addition to the Wash Wax All for our other vehicles, as it's more economical.

      If you think that waterless wash can't be used on anything but dust, this video will surprise you:

      Using a waterless wash is so much more convenient as I can do it inside the garage, and it doesn't take long (10-15 mins). No need to pull the car out of the garage, set up the hose, buckets, dry the car etc. I like to keep my car clean on a weekly basis, and waterless wash allows me to do that very easily. I'll also follow up with detail spray or wax/sealant etc occasionally (every few months).
      That video was impressive. Now you got me thinking about it again. I do plan to do more long distance traveling in my C8, this looks like a solution to keeping her clean and presentable along the way when needed. Just have to have a supply of micro fiber towels for sure! Thanks!

        So if we take a step back and ask ourselves, why do we want to be careful when washing a car, why do we use water at all and then ask ourselves if we really truly believe waterless is safe, we also need to define what “safe” really is…

        Why do we take care when we wash a car in the first place?
        As we all know, particles on the paint of the car will cause scratches if they are dragged against the paint, because the paint is softer than the particles (sand and what have you).
        You literally drag the cloth against the paint, so the way you use waterless/rinseless is less safe than touchless. Just think about it, guys. Your sand particles do not magically disappear by spraying it with a green liquid.

        Why do we use water when washing a car?
        Water is used to pre-rinse very dirty areas, soak dirt to make it non-solid so it will more easily come off and to lessen friction….

        As waterless does not have a rinse off function for the dirt that will just come off by spraying water, waterless is an inferior product when the car is dirty.

        Waterless will, however, be able to soak dirt, as it is a liquid. So probably equal to a normal wash on this single point.

        Waterless is again inferior to regular water wash when it comes to friction as you use much, much less liquid.

        Is it safe? Yes, if you don’t mind scratches building up.

        It might be a good product if your car is dirty and you have no way of washing it properly. But as a real substitute… this is tye finest snake oil you will come by😁

        Just my opinion using the products many times.

        Watch some reviews from people with no bias who are not sponsored. I found no person who recommends this over a proper wash.
