Save Water By Washing Your Car…With A Waterless Wash
Its official – “Florida is in the middle of one of the worst droughts ever recorded”, according to the South Florida Water Management District website. After years of below average rainfall and a very dry winter, Florida’s natural water sources are at record low levels. Florida water management agencies have been forced to institute water restrictions in all of Southeast Florida, including limited irrigation of lawns and, of course, car washing.

Florida is not alone. In many dry areas, such as Arizona, Las Vegas, and many coastal communities, water restrictions are common. Yet, we know there are a lot of auto enthusiasts in these areas – we ship them packages everyday! How do avid detailers keep their vehicles looking great during dry times? Waterless washes.

Waterless washes are products packed with lubricants to allow you to safely clean your vehicle without soap and water. A rinseless wash is another term for a product that dilutes in a small amount of water (about a gallon) and does not require rinsing. Waterless or rinseless washing does not entirely replace the bucket-and-hose method but it does supplement your regular washes, which are presumably less frequent when water is in short supply. A waterless or rinseless wash will remove light contamination, fresh bugs and bird droppings, and dust to keep your vehicle looking good until you can give it a traditional wash. Even if you’re not in a water-restricted area, waterless and rinseless washes are an excellent option to safely clean your vehicle between washes.

From now until the end of month, our waterless and rinseless washes are on sale!

Car Care Q & A

“Hi Autogeek,

My windows have horrible water spots! Ive tried vinegar and steal wool twice and no improvement at all. Do you have nny tips? They are on there and never get any better. Regular glass cleaners will not remove the spots. Please help.



Hi Garrett,

Diamondite has the solution that you are looking for! Take a look at the Diamondite Glass Cleaning System Kit. The Diamondite Glass Cleaning & Protection System was the first glass cleaning kit to address not just the dirt on the outside of the glass, but also the debris lodged in the glass. Using first-of-its-kind Spray Clay, this kit cleans glass deep within its microscopic channels until it is once again as smooth as glass!

A glass cleaner – even a good one – cannot remove contamination that has bonded and, in some cases, has become embedded in the glass. But the Diamondite Glass Cleaning & Protection System can.
