    Ultima ACRYLIC Waterless Wash Review

    I would like to start off by thanking Corey for the Ultima ACRYLIC Waterless Wash, I thought I would get a sample but he sent a whole concentration bottle and an empty spray bottle. Per the instructions I put 1 oz of UAWW into the bottle and filled the rest with distilled water (directions does not mention to use distilled water).

    I started with the trunk as you can see there are water spots from the previous washing.

    I sprayed UAWW and then wiped with a long nap MF towel and dried with the short nap. The dirt instantly got trapped in the first wipe and no dirt was on the drying towel.

    It even removed the water spots.

    Continued (due to 5 picture limit):

    I taped the hood to compare UAWW to CG Clay Luber (it was the only QD I had at the moment, I rarely perform waterless or rinseless washes, I mostly use QD for Nanoscrub lubricant)

    It cleans similarly but it felt that the UAWW absorbed into the towel better, like it wanted to be taken off the paint (I used new towel on the Luber side).

    It looks like UAWW does some filling, because on the Luber side you can see some swirls.

    After going over the Luber side with UAWW, the swirls are gone.

    To do a whole body minus the wheels and windows I used almost ½ (10oz) the spray bottle and it would have taken me 15 min if I didn’t stop to do testing and take pictures.

    Conclusion:
    1. I wouldn’t use it on a real dirty car (my car was washed 5 day ago but it gets parked outside at work and at home). Even the directions say remove heavy dirt or sand first before UAWW. Use it in between washes before the car gets too dirty to keep the car always clean.
    2. It is FAST and I don’t need to worry about constant water drips from a full on car wash.
    3. It pays for itself where there are water restrictions; a little goes a long way.
    4. I used other QD and Quick Waxes that got pushed around when trying to wipe it dry but UUAW is attracted to the towel.
    5. Leaves a nice shine on the car while lightly filling in swirls.
    6. One thing I noticed that is different from a washed or waxed car is that UUAW tends to attract dust; it might be the static build up from the MF towels. Maybe it can use some of the anti-static components from Carpro Eraser.

    Thanks Homer!

    I'm trying to do my review but after my Windows 10 update last night, my computer is running like molasses on a cold day.

    I did both the bottle and a bucket wash.

    Why do you have to fill with distilled water yet it's waterless?

    I use distilled water in my rinseless and waterless washes because of what people who have a strong understanding of how those products works explain how they work to me. According to them, those products are able to clean without marring the paint because of how the molecules in the solution encapsulate the dirt and debris on your paint and loosen that dirt and debris to it can removed safely.

    If what I was told does not sound correct, please reply.

    Oops, I now see that was four and a half years ago. Oh well, if anyone has something to add, please do.

    Have you ever faced challenges or concerns regarding water restrictions, and if so, did you find waterless wash solutions like UUAW to be effective alternatives for maintaining a clean car?
