My own creation of “no-rinse” car wash

Firstly, I want to clarify that I am not here to endorse any car wash products, but just want to share with readers an efficient and environmentally friendly way of washing your beloved ride.

I do my car wash once a week, on a weekend morning. As a not-so-hardworking car owner, the process of rinsing the car, soaping the car, rinsing off the soap solution plus drying really puts me off. However, if I were to use purely water, the road grime may not be removed effectively. Therefore, I decided to try a compromised method by halving the recommended car wash dosage. This way, the diluted solution would not be too soapy which means a rinse off is not required. At the same time, the diluted solution would maintain some form of cleaning capability.

I have been using the above method for the past one and a half year. I use two pail of water to wash the body of the car (including the rims) and is satisfied with the results so far. The photos below are taken after a morning car wash on 25 June 11. The last time I sent my car for a wax and sealant treatment was nearly 8 months ago. This “short-cut” method of washing maintained the shine quite well.

I understand that there are some “no-rinse” car wash products in the market but they are not readily available in common supermarkets like Giant or NTUC. You can try the above method with any car wash products – just adjust the dosage accordingly. Happy washing !!Attached Image: thumbnail.jpg

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
