Washing Your Car the Green Way

Published Jan 22nd 2008, 6:11pm by Jody DeVere in Featured Articles

Greenearth Have you ever thought about how much water you use when you wash your car? If you could find an environmentally-friendly way to wash your car and save water, would you try it?

Enter the Green Earth Waterless Car Wash. According to their web site, a typical car wash uses 20 - 45 gallons of water per car. If you wash your car at home, you can use up to 140 gallons! For areas with a limited water supply, that’s a lot of water. But Green Earth Waterless Car Wash hopes to change that.

Begreen The wash contains “organic soaps and surfactants” and other “organic ingredients as its base.” They claim it can clean all solid car surfaces including glass, paint, plastic, fiberglass, and chrome. And they say that the more you use Green Earth Waterless Car Wash, the less you need to wash you car. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Luckyearthgiftbag They recommend that you use their special microfiber towels to clean your car. And they sell a tire cleaner, too. If you live in the Los Angeles area, they’ll even come to you!

While I’m always skeptical of product claims without actually seeing them in action, I’m at least glad to see someone trying to produce a green car wash product. And for $39.50 you can try their car wash, tire shine, and microfiber towels. With 7-10 washes per bottle, it actually sounds fairly reasonable… and worth checking out. With a 100% money back guarantee, what’s to lose?
