Shift Car Care has launched its new Shift Waterless Wash, an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional car washes.

If like me the first thing you thought of when hearing the words “waterless wash” was to panic at the thought of the grime and general crap that sits on top of your paintwork from day-to-day driving, keep reading. Shift Waterless Wash by Shift Car Care (owned by Auto Finesse), uses an advanced formula, infused with polymer technology to ensure that cleaning paintwork, vinyl, glass, trim and wheels is completely safe and scratch-free.

It works by using a simple ‘spray-on and wipe-off’ application and, in addition to fully cleansing surfaces, immediately installs a quartz-based ceramic coating to stop water and road grime from sticking. In other words, once it’s finished eating into the dirt and removing it you’re your paintwork, it leaves a hydrophobic coating on top of the paint, resulting in a surface repels water, making sure puddles of water can’t sit on the car. Clever stuff!

With an average car wash using between 75 and 200 litres of fresh water per vehicle, this zero-water solution is not only kinder to the environment, but it cleans, shines and protects all exterior surfaces with a single application.

Priced at £16.99, one 500ml bottle of Shift Waterless Wash contains enough solution to complete up to 20 cars. Shift Car Care also supplies a full range of accessories to aid the waterless wash process, a selection of cost-effective bundles, and supporting finishing products such as Shift Glass Cleaner and Shift Tyre Dressing.
