There used to be a product around here in Texas called "Posh Wash" that looked and smelled a lot like Posh Wash. Dont know what happened to it, but it was around for about 5 years or so and dissapered.

Thanks. I am just worried that without water the paint will get scratched. My car is black and the scratches show up more.

I use optimum waterless wash quite a lot. Works great, but the technique is very different. I did pro detailing for a while, and it was much nicer to do a waterless wash than to lug around some huge tank of water. If you get your technique right, it really does work.


However, if the car is saturated in mud and sand and what not, a good wash is the best medicine.

Check out autopia.org for more info.

If there isn't a huge buildup of mud, etc., you could just use a quick detailing spray to wash the car. I've done it when it rained on the way to a car show with my 300.
