Ecosmart?

So its getting cold here and for the sake of not busting a hose or anything im wondering if the waterless car detailer ECOSMART is legit?

I would go with Optimum No Rinse instead since its a rinseless wash and not waterless wash. I dont doubt CG ECOSMART-RU cleaning ability as all the CG products I have used are great. I just feel you will get better results with No Rinse. All you need is two buckets one with 4 gallons of warm water for rinsing the other with 2.5 gallons of warm water in it and about 1 1/2 capfuls of ONR in it. Check out this article from DI. In fact ONR is still on sale for $11.69 instead of $15.99 but it ends on the 30th both links are below. He chooses to follow it up with a OPT Spray wax that is not necessary, but does add protection so thats why it took him 1 hour. You should finish washing it in like 30 to 45 minutes in your garage out outside with out using a hose at all.

Cool, but i doubt i will get it soon with my Christmas shopping and x pipe and all so it will probably be after the sale but still 15 bucks isnt bad.

Yeah I here you I am in the same boat. I just bought AG HD because it was on sale if not I would have waited. I still want to get some ONR as well because its a pita to wash your car in the cold but with X-mas on the way I am going to have to hack out regular washes.

Luckily, around 2 oclock its not that cold so thats when i usually wash it. I dont wash it as much as i use to and switched to detailer but it dosent cut it for me. I dont have the time to properly get all the streaks off the car (got lazy since i got a buffer)...

I don't really like waterless products for really washing the car. They are great for bird bombs and the like but they aren't real paint safe if the car is the slightest bit dirty. Like Danny said go with ONR and the method he described.
