January 21, 2006I've heard of both, but have never tried them. I only use Poorboys Spray & Wipe for spot cleaning or as a general quick detail. In my opinion there's really no substitute for a car wash with good shampoo and lots of water.
January 21, 2006I agree Jerry...seems like you'd just be pushing dirt around rather than rinsing it off.
January 21, 2006All this stuff seams like is a quick detailer posing as a dry wash super hybrid liquid lol. You can clean yur car with this but trust me its probably not gonna pass the old, hand to paint test. You'd probably spend an hour alone on the dry wash and then rub yur hand on the paint and it'll still feel dirty!! I agree with the previous post, Nothing beats a god old fashion water and soap wash, and then a clay bar run lol best regards
January 22, 2006Poorboys Spray and Wipe really does a great job cleaning. It's not a detailer. That's all I use in the good weather. In the winter with all the sand and salt on the roads up here I spray that off first then use Spray and Wipe. You have to make sure you have clean microfiber towels though. Your truck will definitely pass the hand clean test much more so than a bucket of suds.
January 22, 2006Wow i guess ill have to pick some up and give it a wirl. Cause i think everyone knows what a good hand test feels like, and how it makes ya warm inside lol hahaha, but being able to get that without suds would be awesome.
January 22, 2006^^^
Seriously Spray and Wipe is good stuff. Give Steve a call and he can give you the details. He worked with his chemist to get the right formulation.

QEW is a great waterless wash and if used properly can leave a clean non marred surface. Here is a "How to use QEW":
Driwash - some people swear by it (99% of them distributor of DriWash) but IMO it's expensive and not worth the money
Spray and Wipe is a great in between washes but not for heavily soiled paint, though. It's used to prolong the time between washes or quick clean up...Here is a thread showing how dirty I'd use S&W for:
January 30, 2006Waterless washes may be the only way some people will be able to clean there vehicles in the future. No, i certainly wouldn't use it after off-roading or on heavy dirt as it would be a total waste of money and you'd also need a lot of towels.
You will see these used by people who live in apartments, and drought areas, as well as where the local governments are working with the EPA to prevent home washings where the run off goes into public drainage systems.
These products were originally designed for the "show" people who drove to a meet and needed a quick cleaning at the show. Many of these people also traveled to weekend shows and stayed in motels and wanted to be able to keep their rides clean at all times.
January 30, 2006Is that the man his own self? Great to see you posting here! I'm a big fan and have a shelf-full of just about every darn product you offer.
