    Default DRY clean?

    i have heard of this product before, but has anyone actually used it?

    http://www.permaclear-carcare.co.uk/pro-dry-clean.html

    just been sent an offer through for a bottle of it, 4 microfibre cloths and a pad for £9.99 instead of £29.97, thought it was not bad, might just use it for a quick detail, but would like some reviews from REAL people, not from their website

    Never heard of it mate, but I really do struggle to understand how a waterless wash will not scratch paint work. But I have never tried any of these types of products, I am tempted to give ONR a go though.

    I have to admit I was very sceptical regarding waterless washes and there is loads of debate on DW about it. However I did buy some from go-waterless and gave it a whirl.

    I went for their mid-range product called Ultimate which was £6.95 or thereabouts. I use it more as a strong QD rather than a full waterless wash in the sense that if my veccy is pretty dirty ie after a day or two driving in the rain then it'll get a proper 2BM wash. But if it's general road dust, pollen and perhaps an overnight downpour sitting on the paint then the waterless gets used. It really is a great product and does do what it says. It's incredibly slick and you can see it pulling the dirt off of the paint.

    My method is to mist onto a panel, let it dwell for 15-20 seconds before using a clean MF to wipe it off. I then use another MF to buff off. Another panel is then misted, the MF flipped over (unless no visible dirt) and the process repeated.

    I machine polished various panels on my car recently to test the product specifically and so far there are no additional swirl marks following using the product and thats despite around 4-5 waterless washes.

    Basically I would never use it how they demonstrate IE on a filthy car. Under that dirt is bound to be larger stones that the MF simply won't be able to absorb, but as a strong QD it's fantastic and i promise once you start using it you'll wonder why didnt start sooner.

    I can't vouch for the product in the OP's post but going by the number of "new" manufacturers coming onto the scene and how they all look vastly similar i suspect that all the products are from a single supplier and simplY re-packaged.

    And if you aren't prepared to go fully waterless then the best starter product is Optimum No Rinse (ONR) which is used as a single bucket product or as a strong QD. Look it up on DW and you'll see it has loads of dedicated users, including pro-detailers!

    Use this showroom shine all the time, but i hand wash car first and dry then polish with it then apply Dodo purple haze after. Been using it for 3 years, pictured below this before Dodo is applied
