Let's start with the obvious.Heavy mud, salt and sand should not be taken on with a Waterless Car Wash. While in theory it is possible, you will go through numerous microfiber towels to do this safely and effectively. However, there may be times when the vehicle is "borderline" where you're not sure if you should attempt the Waterless Car Wash method. We've tried to illustrate in the photos below when it is suitable (and not) to go with this style of washing.
MicroFiber Towels (MFT)
In this last photo we clearly see a car that is beyond the capability of a Waterless Car Wash. There are visible chunks of mud which would need to be removed before application. A quick pre-rinse followed by the Waterless Car Wash would be a good method to move forward.

One of the most frequent questions we get asked here is, "when is my car too dirty to perform a waterless car wash"?
In this photo the user should take more caution. This would be the upper limit of what a Waterless Car Wash is capable of handling. The user would want to have plenty of microfiber towels on hand and apply more formula than usual. A Waterless Car Wash can still be utilized, but just take their time.

Examples of Road Grime In the first two examples we look at a car that has light to moderate road grime. The first photo clearly shows a vehicle that has been frequently cleaned and can certainly utilize a Waterless Car Wash method. The second photo has some contaminants on the surface, but is still a great candidate for a Waterless Wash.
MFTs are superior to soft cotton towels and are a key component of the waterless car wash system.
MFTs are much more efficient at removing dirt and grime while protecting the surface of your car. At EZ Mobile Detailing we use three MFT colors to clean cars;
MFT Color coding is very Important - After use, we wash each color separately to ensure we don't contaminate the MFT materials with the different cleaning formulas we use.
