When it comes down to waterless car wash products, most will have very similar features and cleaning results. In situations like this, I like to compare products by price. The bottom line is, “How much is it going to cost me per wash?”
Also, see additional notes below the chart on how we did our cost calculations, and which product ingredients determine the difference between “wash” and “wash & wax”.

* Cost per Wash: The amount of car wash solution that you use to clean your vehicle will vary. In this chart, I am using 4 oz amount per wash, so we get a clean cost comparison across the board. That is the amount of cleaner that I use, and I have an SUV.
** Wash & Wax: These products contain polymers or the equivalent, which add additional protection and shine to your vehicle. Unlike traditional car wax, it requires very little buffing. It also helps to repel water and keep car looking cleaners for longer.
How Waterless Car Wash Products Compare:
In short, all of the above products are good. What you may not know is that a major factor in your car washing results is the cloths that you use. Make sure you use high quality microfiber towels or mitts because they will help lift away dirt and dust as well as quickly buff your car’s surface to a vibrant shine. See more information here.
The higher quantity you get, the more money you can save.
