    If you think about the "waterless washing" it's like rubbing the dirt into the paint which would be much like using sandpaper. I was given a sample to try and after I read the instructions, I gave it back.

    I've used this stuff for a couple of years and it's great Griots waterless cleaner It's gentle and does a good job even on dirt that is hard,. I got the green microfiber towels to use with it and finish the job with Pledge.

    Amen in triplicate.:s I only wipe my bike immediately after washing. Once it has been on the road for even a short distance, my opinion is that there is grit on the surface. I work too hard getting the spiderwebs and swirls out of the clear coat to wipe more in.

    I have not cleaned any bikes I have had in recent history with water.

    I have a duster I run over the whole bike with first, then I lightly wipe it with a microfiber cloth, then I either use pledge or wax. I have not had any issues with paint.

    With the stuff I collect on my bike like Love bugs and road grime, I would never go waterless. I guess maybe if you rode in perfect weather all the time, only maybe. I ride everyday. Yes, everyday.

    First I use the California Duster and then Pledge orange with a microfiber clothe and that's all I need.

    Any spray on carnuba (sp?) type is good. Most auto zone type stores carry it. I also use feather duster, or blow off with compressed air, first, spray and wipe with micro-fiber cloth. I like the Turtle Wax Ice, no residue at all.
