How they work: You spray the liquid onto a soiled panel, the liquid then dissolves the dirt and lifts it from the paint encapsulating it within the liquid. Therefore, when you wipe over the surface with a good quality MF you are removing the product residue along with the dirt and the product also helps lubricate the panel whilst wiping. A MF cloth is essential as the fibres also help trap the dirt inside to avoid marring the paint.
Many waterless washes are filler heavy and contain a sealant. The fillers are used to minimise visible marring and protect the paint.
I'm sure as you can understand from that last comment it isn't exactly a safe way to wash a car as some marring is inevitable. Removing a coating of dust would be fine if you are careful but dirt will cause marring...
Let's just say, I wouldn't use them on corrected paint.
