Adam's Waterless Wash

I'm just so happy Adam's waterless wash system that I had to start this thread. If this is a redundant topic then I apologize.

I bought the Adam's waterless wash kit for myself an early father day gift and the funny thing is that I received it yesterday just as I was finishing a 2 hour detailing of my BRM 13 2SS.

I had to take a 2 hour trip afterwards so when I returned home I decided to try out the waterless wash system. It took me all of 15 minutes and I was AMAZED at how good of a job it did, the car wasn't muddy or anything, but it did have road grime and bug guts from the 2 hour turnpike trip and it looked FANTASTIC when I was finished.

If anyone is on the fence on a waterless wash system I can't say enough of how happy I am with the Adam's system, it's going to save allot of cleaning time because it's so quick and easy. Thanks for listening.

Paul

I don't think Adam's offers a bad product at all to be honest.

DUDE!!!!

I love Adam's WW! I was going to order some when I didn't get any in my Mystery Box, but I found a brand NEW UNOPENED BOTTLE under the sink!!!!

My husband had hidden it there to use on his truck!

Great product!!! Good enough to hide from your wife.

At what point do you decide to go with a waterless wash? I currently use the optimum rinse-less wash, and while I'm happy with it, there are swirl marks (getting a detail soon to remove them). I am looking to getting a water-less wash but I don't know if it will be enough as the car is my daily driver.

Waterless Wash is best suited for removing light dust, perhaps a few water spots and if a bird decides to use your car as it's bathroom to soften the bomb before removing it. Products like the Optima Rinseless Wash, or Adam's Rinseless Wash are more for washing your vehicle. I can't speak for the Optima, but Adam's Rinseless Wash can be mixed 1oz product to 15oz distilled water to make Waterless Wash.

Rinseless Wash has more lubricating properties than Waterless wash, so is safer for a bit more than just light dust, water spots, etc... It won't replace a two bucket wash if the car's dirty.

I do spray the front of my vehicles down with Adam's Waterless Wash to help soften bugs before my traditional two bucket wash.

I personally use Waterless Wash after every drive in my GTO, (unless I get caught in the rain) even after a 3 or 4 hour road trip.
The dirtier it gets, dust, bugs etc...the more product & MF waterless wash towels I use. Just use common sense start at the top of the car and do the very bottom front & rear last, and you will be fine. Actually I do the front fascia very last so I won't grind in the bug guts into the rest of the paint.

I'd have to stay with Adam Pitale's recommendation. For cars with light garage dust, or that have been driven briefly as the one in the video, collecting light dust/pollen.

Great, Thanks for all the answers. I use a 2 bucket rinseless wash method, which works great however I was hoping this would be the new move. So it seems like as long as the vehicle isn't too dirty, the adam's is the way to go. Anything more and I'll use the rinseless.

I live in an apartment so I don't have access to a hose, however there is a touchless wash near work that I can go to to get the hard stuff off, then hit it with the Adam's Waterless when I get home. <<<< This may be the best move actually.

The swirls came with the car unfortunately, but I'm pretty sure that I haven't helped. After I get the detail and correction I am planning on keeping them off as long as possible.

I too am an Adams fanboy, I've not had a bad experience with any of their products. I still plan on doing the regular washes when she gets really dirty but I've been using the waterless wash everyday now when I come home from work and it does a fantastic job, it only takes a few minutes and leaves the finish clean and shiny.

After the race Friday and the drive back I could've used a gallon of the waterless wash by that point. It's a great product but it starts disappearing quickly and always wonder where it goes lol.
