Default Re: Dry Washing cars / Waterless car-wash

I am using Ultima Waterless Wash+ (UWW+) for a while now after having done cquartz detailing on my GT TSI & I must say, it's really really good. It gives a nice shine & the surface is definitely smoother (although that could be because of my cquartz). But I have tried it on other cars & it gives excellent results. I bought the UWW+ from Ultimate Detailerz (Mr. Mohsin Khan) in Banglore alongwith CarPro Boa MF (500gsm) cloth which is brilliant IMO. Expensive, aye; but brilliant. Plus you help the environment by not using water. UWW+ lasts for really long as you need to mix 15ml in 650ml which is a crazy dilution. Do one panel at a time (divide the car in 8 panels) & one MF cloth is enough. I'm very happy with the product.

Hi Ankit, any idea how it compares to Proklear RAW extreme?. Also can such waterless wash liquids be used on alloy wheels as well?

Guys
I have been using Proclear and Crofgate waterless wash systems for quite sometime now.
Are there any more brands available in India as I would like to try them out

You can try Ultima or Optimum. Both are very good. I use the latter.

Personal opinion is to stay off Indian brands from Pidilite or fake Formula 1 etc.

From my long term experience using ONR & Ultima, I will suggest Ultima to be slightly, very slightly better than ONR because...
1. Price per usage
2. Outcome
3. Availability

BTW, I'm comparing the below ONR & Ultima

Not this, despite using this for over 2+ years

And this is what I'm using for nearly 2 years now & very satisfied & if you may ask why, ONR (Green) & Ultima has a mild wax that provides a slight shine after an application which is missing with ONR Blue.

If there's anything better than this from anyone's experience, I'm willing to try that as well.

I recently tried proklear rinseless. Looks pretty similar to the one aargee shared above but it's blue in colour. Is fuss free and gives a good shine but some buffing is required. Got it done by the washer person under supervision and my own microfibre cloth. I think I can carry this arrangement on a weekly basis and use jopasu for daily wipes.

I am using proklear currently and find it good.

Jopasu daily wipe and twice a week Proklear would be a better option or else the paint surface gets too gritty due to our dust and pollution.

I recently tried Green Duck waterless wash. I picked up a combo from amazon which had 500ml waterless wash spray with 2 micro fiber cloth made by them only. I like the product. It also has a wax hence after cleaning, it leaves a little shine on my XUV. Next time i will buy their concentrate directly from their website.

This is the one i am using rightnow

Is this spray product a ready to use diluted type,if yes it is very expensive.

Proklear 250 ml concentrate is INR 599 only
Dilution is 5ml per litre of water so 250 ml is close to 50 litres of waterless wash
