Watching a car being hand-washed might seem like a boring proposition, but Dubai-based EcowashME makes it interesting by cleaning three Lexus LFAs without using any water:
To satisfy my curiosity, I took a look at the EcowashME website to see how it’s possible can clean a car without water:
How is it possible to wash a dirty car without water?
Our products contain 47 ingredients, including wetting agents, lubricants and protectants which have never been used by the car care industry. These ingredients combine to soften and emulsify surface grime, while a specific blend of polymeroxane fluids and hydrophenolic lubricants attach a microscopic layer of exclusive PolyGuard-3. to the surface.
Will it scratch my car?
No. Our washing process is 100% scratch free. an ecowash is totally scratch free. Our products have been regularly used to clean and protect many luxury cars such as Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz and Ferrari. The unique polymer in the product encapsulates the dirt and lifts it from the surface of your paint, it is then safely removed with a clean cloth.
Nice to know that there’s actual science behind the process, though I think I’d still be worried if it was my LFA they were washing.
(There’s nothing quite like that white LFA with the unpainted carbon fiber roof & rear wing that’s featured in this video — what a great look. I wonder if the exposed carbon fiber is available to LFA buyers?)
