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.

Re: FW1 fast wax

i'm always interested in trying out new products especially if they make cleaning/detailing quicker and easier. when they were doing the hood of the red truck, why is his towel full of red paint. i would sh#t myself if i started wiping my jeep and layers of paint came off in my towel.

Perfectly normal... Most red paint on cars does not have a clear-coat on top, its just primer and then the base/color layer. So when you polish the paint the color will transfer to the pad/towel as you remove layers of paint.

You can't see this on your truck for example because as you polish the paint you are polishing a clear-coat which has no color to transfer as you remove layers of it. Once you go through this layer you will see the paint color transfer to the pad/towel tho - then you're in trouble!
