I will say the car does look nice, BUT.... I would NEVER wash my car like that. I prefer NOT to have swirlmarks and small scratches . all the dirt and dust that is in that cloth has now been rubbed on the entire exterior of that car.... no thanks.

If that waterless car wash really worked as good as the premium car wash stuff that you use with water.... detail shops would use it. I have never seen a detail shop with a good reputation use waterless stuff. Bottom line is that you just rubbed a cloth full of dirt all over that caddy.

Speed Detailers and such are good for little spots like a bird poop, but doing the entire car like that? I'll have to agree, not a good idea for the finish, I'd rewash with water and then seal it up with a nice coat of wax, otherwise that Caddy will be suffering, and PLEASE don't do that, I love Cadillac'* (Does look nice though)

The product I use has only been out since July, and you can only get it online. If you were to see the car in persn you'd see that there are NO swirlmarks and small scratches on the car.

You use a terry cloth cause it has deeper pockets to hold the dirt so that you don't get any scratches. The stuff I use also contains carnuba wax. You know the 69 Coronet with a $8000 paint job in my garage, I use this stuff on it too.

I"ve detailed around 50 different cars for other people with this stuff and never had any complaint. Infact the guy whose corvette I did went and ordered a case for himself so he could do it on his other vehicle when he got back home to BC.

I'm not sure willwren would like it if I posted the name, afterall its from the same company that sells those pills to put in your tank for better gas milage.

But its called Eco-Sheen

Oh and thanks, I always enjoy detailing my moms cadillac, cause it always looks great when its done
