    Anyone use the waterless products like those made by mothers, aero, and rainx? Thinking I might use it between washes or as something to use for bird droppings, or cat foot prints.

    Sarah-n-Tuned did a review on waterless car cleaning. Basically close to what SubVet has said.

    I watched the video awhile ago, if I remember right she compares waterless to watered detailing about the 9 minute mark.

    I was using Norton Liquid Ice and is cleans off the bugs, bird droppings and water marks really well and shines nice on my black Ranger but is recently I came across an amazing product called Aero Cosmetics Wash Wax All. It is amazing! A gallon costs $27.75 but I got the $37.95 amazon package deal with prime free shipping and I have never seen a more professionally packed package. Comes with 4 nice 16” by 16 “ micro fiber towels and a 16oz spray bottle. The shine and protection of this alcohol and ammonia free product is what the pros are selling for big money on YouTube commercials . Check is out, you will not be disappointed. I keep is in the silly compartments under the back seat.

    I use the Dualpolymer products. Their tire cleaner dressing is phenomenal as well. There are plenty to choose from on the market. The products from this company work for me. ;)

    I’ve been using Griot’s Garage Rinseless Wash and Wax for almost all of my washes. It does a great job. My Ranger is black and I don’t have any water spots or swirl marks. I also have some mixed with water in a spray bottle and use that for spot cleaning and removing bird droppings.

    I saw Aero Cosmetics and it is much cheaper than most $28 for a gallon. It does not clean as well as the Norton fire and ice but it sure shines and is much more affordable.

    I went with Meguiars Ceramic Spray easy to use. I post this some where :) the only issue I had was it was really easy to use to much. But not a big deal to wipe with a damp towel and polish with another towel. Glass also came out real nice. Now will see how long it last. and if it cleans up easier

    Do you have to wash first before applying?
