One of the most frequent questions we get asked during the chilly winter season, is if Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash can be used. The answer is both yes and no…and here’s why.
There are a few factors which will determine whether or not it’s appropriate to use Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash in the winter.
1) Outside temperature.
2) Temperature of car panels.
3) Condition of vehicle.
Let’s start with the outdoor temperature. If it’s below freezing you’ll want to proceed with caution. Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash does not contain any alcohol, petroleum distillates, or other chemicals which would lower its freezing point. From an environmental and safety standpoint this is obviously a great thing. Unfortunately, when it gets below freezing you may find that the formula does not work as effectively, or may actually freeze on the panel. If this happens simply pull your car into a sunny location/heated garage, let it thaw out and wipe clean with a microfiber cloth.
Our preferred method of performing a waterless car wash during the winter is waiting for a sunny day and letting the car panels warm up. Before spraying the formula, do a quick check of the panel by putting the back of your hand to feel if it’s warm. If so, you’re good to continue with the waterless wash.

One other factor to consider is the dirt-level on the vehicle. Here in New England during winter, we get some very dirty cars. If you see contaminants such as heavy salt or clumps of mud/sand, be sure to pre-rinse these areas first. Then follow-up with the waterless car wash. We always recommend “common sense caution”. If you think a car is simply too dirty, pre-rinse it. It’s okay to use a little water now to assist in the cleaning process. If your car has a light-moderate coating of contaminants you can go right ahead with a normal waterless wash.
So that covers using our waterless car wash during the winter. Have a question for us? Email it to info[at]ecotouch[dot]net.
