Green Earth's Waterless Car Wash

Did you know that that average car wash place uses about 20-45 gallons of water per car? I know. The numbers alone are staggering. But wait! A home car washing uses between 80 and 140 gallons of water and none of that is being recycled. All those products are running off your car and into the environment. It makes me shiver just thinking about it.

“There are approximately 240 million vehicles in the U.S. If even half of those cars used Green Earth Waterless Carwash, once a month for one year, we would save 28 billion gallons of water. This is the equivalent of 40,000 Olympic size pools or 560 million baths.”

There has to be a better alternative. There is. Green Earth Waterless Car Wash. When I found this product it was in the middle of a very bad drought for the DC area this summer. This product was like manna from heaven. I couldn’t resist checking it out and ordering some up. It is environmentally friendly, VOC free, dye free, fragrance and paraben free, as well as being biodegradable. It just doesn’t get any better than that. Oh wait. It does. Green Earth’s product cleans really well. I used it on my Pathfinder (no small vehicle) and my car looked beautiful afterwards. Not only that but it wasn’t the typical wet, soggy towel annoyance that washing my car usually turns out to be. This is the number one reason why I rarely wash my car. The organic soaps and surfactants in Green Earth work on all solid surfaces from glass to paint, fiberglass and plastic this waterless car wash cleans them! I did the inside of my car and the outside with no problem. It works on dry or wet surfaces too. I loved that even while I cleaned the inside there was no toxic smell making me cough. I could breathe freely. The job was done quickly and it works incredibly well on the tough stuff on the grill of the car. You know all the dead bugs and bird poop. It cleans bird poop with ease. My car was so shiny and new looking and I swear the paint job looked better. I love this product!

I have to admit I was skeptical at first too. I read the FAQs on the website and thought it sounded too good to be true. I didn’t believe that one bottle would actually clean my car and there would be more than enough left over to do 6-10 more washes but it is true. I didn’t believe it was fragrance free either. Yet I sniffed and sniffed and sprayed it into the air like I was testing perfume and found nothing. Even when the sun was beating down as I sprayed it on the rag and car I couldn’t smell a thing. All I noticed was the massive amounts of dirt and grime being easily cleaned off my car. Two weeks later the inside is still clean. Despite rain and snow my car is still shiny. How is that possible? Green Earth’s wash actually creates a non-stick surface on your car and it seems to repel dirt. I still have lots left over in the spray bottle too.

This product more than lives up to its claims and has impressed me quite a bit. Even my husband, a neat freak with anal tendencies when it comes to cleaning, was surprised and impressed. For $23 for a 32 oz bottle (which includes shipping and handling) you just cannot beat Green Earth’s Waterless Car Wash. That price alone is the cost to clean your car at car wash place in my area. The 100% money back guarantee shows you have nothing to lose too.

Yes, it’s late in the season but this is one seriously great gift (and deal!) for the car lover, Dad, your brother in law, boss, whoever you know that loves their car/”baby”. If not for Christmas it makes a perfect birthday or Father’s Day gift as well. Plus shipping is included in the price. You just can’t beat that. Green Earth also sells microfiber towels for optimum cleaning and tire shine. You can check out all the products here.
