For light "summer" dirt/dust: maybe. For "winter" grime/salt/whatever: No Way, need flowing water and detergent to get that stuff off safely. IMO. :thumb:

I've never used them but these types of products have been around since the 70's.

I would be concerned about trying this on an extremely dirty finish because it would probably scratch the clearcoat. If you had just dust and maybe a lightly dirty vehicle it would probably be OK.

I use the quick detailer sprays on my vehicles when I want to get rid of extremely light soiling or dust. They are supposed to do basically the same thing as NoWet - suspend the dirt in the liquid so that it won't scratch the clearcoat. I use a clean towel after the first wipe removes the dirt.

It takes Water to remove Dirt and Dust as far as I'm concerned, and ofcourse, Detergent. I've seen Beautiful Cars with little Spider Web scratches on them. I try to avoid that and so far, with success. The only shortcut I take is ...when drying the Vehicle, I use the California Water Blade. And it works !!

I use the California Water Blade also, and have for several years, & I think it works great. Then use a towel for the areas the blade won't reach.

That's exactly what I do and it works great, and certainly cuts down on drying time.
I've had mine approx.,10 Years.

The water blade scares me a bit. On missed grain of dirt/sand and you stand the chance of scratching the finish. If you've got a good coat of wax on the car put an ounce of Optima No Rinse http://www.autogeek.net/optimum-no-rinse.html in your wash water, then after rinsing hit the car with an electric leaf blower. No chance of scratches and car comes out spotless. Neighbors may look at you a little strange :eek:

I always use a leaf-blower or the exhaust of a shop-vac to dry my Harley. Works really well and no spots.

I sure am. I've traveled extensively, and lived quite a number of places, but the ATL is Home. Are you from this Area ?
It's growing like crazy down here but very seldom do I see an Enclave. 8)

Good advice to anyone visiting, however, there are many many more places in the area to visit,e.g., Downtown has a population of about (Est.) 500,000 and ATL Metro area has approx 4,000,000 people.Traffic is terrible.
