      We are migrating! IMPORTANT - Please read   08/07/2017

      Over the past couple of years we've seen an influx of productivity and engagement across our social networking platforms. So much so, that the social realm as you may know, is overtaking the likes of websites and forums. We have been number crunching and feel it is best that we go with the flow and embrace the social media world.
      We have decided to transfer the club over to our already hugely popular Facebook Page and Facebook Group. With over 14k members on our Facebook group alone there is even more engagement with other members from across the world. If you haven't already, now is the time to give our Page a Like and join the Group for discussions.
      The website will soon become a redirect to the Facebook Page and Group. If you have anything of importance posted on the forum, now would be a great time to grab it and post it on our group.

      A further message will be sent before the switch.

Recommeded No H2O Wash & Wax Products?

4 posts in this topic

Any recommendations for wash & wax products that don't need any water to use, particularly on Emocion red?  Can't get a hose or buckets to the car easily.  I picked up a bottle of Meguiar's Wash & Wax Anywhere and some microfibre cloths in Halfords.  What do people use when hoses and buckets aren't an option?  Any favourites?

or you could try something like this https://www.shopnshine.co.uk/chemical-guys-ecosmart-ru

Thanks.  I'll check those out.  First motorway trip this past weekend with lots of spray from trucks so I think I need a good old fashioned hose wash.

There's a waterless wash and wax by Williams (F1 team) which they use on their F1 cars. I haven't used it and I stay away from waterless as i am not convinced however it's gets great reviews and I know someone who uses it and brings his vehicle up nicely.

Just search it on eBay or amazon. Don't need to use much per wash either apparently.

What you could do is take your car to a nearby jet wash, spray the worst off and then use the waterless system to ensure you don't scratch the car too much.

      I'm an avid car cleaner, the missus says I do it too much but there's nothing better than spending an hour or two on a summer's evening just as the sun is setting, washing and waxing the motor. This said, there are other times when I simply can't be bothered, hence the reason I have bought Williams Waterless Wash & Wax. After reading multiple reviews, people seem to have been blown away at how easy it is to use to get such a good result. Quick one, any body used it and how good are these results?

      Sorry for being absent for so long. 
      Looking some advice. Got a 1.4 seat ibiza sport 2006 - first time i power washed it the car immediately wouldn't start, after three or four tries over the space of half an hour or so it eventually started and i figured i'd just gotten water somewhere i shouldn't have that, when dried out the car started fine.
      Sunday just passed i power washed the car again in a bit of a hurry and was a bit careless with where i was spraying...the car started fine straight away and i moved it up the path to park, went out that night to go to work and it wouldn't start at all. 
      It is turning over fine but wont start. I am guessing i have once again gotten water somewhere i shouldn't have and it is just taking extra long to dry out because its cold wet weather here at the min (Northern Ireland).
      Anyone else have similar issues and any way i can resolve this during the washing process? May sound stupid but i was considering throwing an old duvet cover inside the bonnet when washing it from now on, any ideas??
      Thanks car budz - deadbatteriez
