When I was first contacted by Eco Touch to see if I was interested in doing a product review of their waterless car wash, I have to admit I was a bit of a skeptic. After all, waterless car wash? I consider myself fairly up to date with the new green products coming out, and I’d never even heard of it.
Intrigued I said yes, in my mind thinking “It’s going to streak, it’s going to be sticky, and it’s probably going to take a ton of the stuff to get my car clean.”
Well, I’m very happy to say I was wrong on all counts. The Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash works great, and my little Honda Civic looks like the silver bullet she used to.
Why We Shouldn’t Wash Our Cars With Water…
Have you ever thought about how many gallons of water get used when you wash your car?
According to Scientific American, a home car wash goes through 80-140 gallons of water. And that’s every time you wash your car.
And all that sudsy water has to go somewhere, right? It sure does. All the chemicals from the soap you used go down the storm drain, and into area rivers and streams.
Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash
This is where Eco Touch comes in. One bottle of their waterless car wash saves up to 800 gallons of water.
And, the stuff really works.
Here’s what you do: you spray the concentrate on a microfiber towel, and rub the dirt off your car. Then you use a second microfiber towel to dry and shine. That’s it. No water involved.
Now, I never wash my car (because I hate wasting the water). So, you can only imagine how dirty it was when I washed it this weekend with the Eco Touch.
Was I impressed?
You bet I was. The dirt and grime came right off. There were no streaks at all, and the towel didn’t scratch my paint in the slightest.
It was amazing. And I didn’t have to use a drop of water to get my car clean.
Now, each bottle should last for 4-6 washes. And, I can say with confidence that this is true. I was surprised at how little I used to wash my car this weekend. Granted, my car is small, but still. Once the microfiber towel got wet with the concentrate, I needed to use even less.
So, if we say that one bottle will last for 4 washes, this means we’re paying $2.50 per wash (each bottle is $9.99).
Is there anything I didn’t like about the Eco Touch waterless car wash?
Well, no. I did have to work harder to get the bugs off the front of the car (verses using water, which I think helps soften them up so they come off). But, I think this is a good thing because I got a great arm workout.
I’m happy to say that I was completely proven wrong with the Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash. It’s a great product that saves a ton of water and keeps chemicals out of our local watersheds.
Plus, per wash the price isn’t bad, especially compared to what you pay at a commercial wash.
My vote? Five out of five stars.
