揭露無水洗車常見7大說法

 

 

文張內容大致上是說:

 1.無水洗車會刮傷車子?!
使用100%純棉布輕輕畫圓擦拭,避免太用力
要選擇含有潤滑劑的無水洗車劑
如果車太髒,有沙子或泥塊,還要先沖乾淨
擦完無水洗車劑,要用一塊乾淨的布擦亮蠟影
(意思是說達到上述要求,是不會造成刮傷的)

2.無水系列的產品對環境是不好的?!
每家品牌的汽車美容產品對環境都有一定的影響,無水洗車是影響最小的,
每次無水洗車可以減少20~50加崙水量,有經過VOC認證的無水洗車劑,是不用擔心危害地球
(意思是說無水洗車的設計本來就是環保結水,如果有VOC認證,更不用擔心)

3.所有無水洗車劑(蠟)都是一樣的?!
不一樣,有些品牌是含棕櫚蠟為主,有些是以拋光劑為主,
而且並不是所有無水洗車都符合VOC標準

4.無水洗車會傷害車漆?!
這是一個誤解,無水洗車劑會保護車漆,
如果還是會擔心,那就使用含棕櫚成份的無水洗車劑,植物性保證不傷車漆

5.無水洗車比泡沫洗車貴?!
使用無水洗車,除了會省水費,還可省下買蠟錢、上蠟綿、拋光劑,因為只要一瓶就搞定
而且,泡沫洗車精會傷車漆...(這個?!...我是照原文譯...@@")

6.無水系列產品只能用在前置作業和細部處理之間?!
無水洗車是為了取代傳統洗車的全部,雖然無水洗車不能用在太髒有泥砂結塊的車上
但可以輕度的污垢、蚊蟲、柏油、刮痕..等,
如果車子比平時髒,可以多停留幾分鐘再擦掉

7.QD和無水洗車是一樣的?!
QD是用於沒有時間洗車打蠟、漆面只有灰塵的時後,
QD是沒有清潔能力,主要是為了增加漆面光澤度,目的不在清潔

另外在另一篇
Dry Car Wash: 8 Mistakes to Avoid When Using It
裡有提到車太髒不能直接無水洗車、必須準備好幾條擦拭布、....等
換句話說....必須花更多時間和精力去小心處理清潔,不然無水洗車造成刮痕的機率比泡沫洗車來的高

無水洗車和泡沫洗車,如果在沒有條件限制下,肯定是泡沫洗車優於無水洗車,
但因為環境、時間、金錢..等環境限制下,無水洗車有的是便利性及環保性

就像24H便利商店和超市賣場,想要便利性卻必須捨棄便宜價格...

這又讓我想到爭執很久的理論:

圓圈打蠟VS直線打蠟;論無水洗車VS泡沫洗車;高壓沖車VS水管沖車

大家都在追求到底是哪個好?我想...兩派理論,各有各的利弊,沒有好與不好,只有適不適合...

Waterless Car Washes: 7 Common Myths, Debunked / by Jon C. Morris

 

Are you on the fence about using waterless car washes? If you're at all skeptical about the benefits of using waterless wash and wax products, perhaps you've fallen prey to some of the misconceptions that surround them. Below are some of the most common myths about waterless detailing products, debunked.

 

 

 

1. Waterless cleaners will scratch your car's surface
As long as you use the right techniques, a waterless wash and wax product will not scratch your car. First of all, you need to use a 100% cotton terry cloth to wipe the surface of your vehicle after you spray the formula onto it. Rub lightly and in a circular motion to remove dirt. Avoid rubbing vigorously, so you don't scratch your car.
In addition, be sure to choose a waterless formula that contains lubricants so that it allows dirt particles to glide off the surface rather than get dragged across it. Furthermore, pre-rinse your vehicle if it's caked in mud or sand because you won't be able to clean a vehicle that dirty with a waterless cleaner alone. Also, make sure you use a microfiber towel to buff the wax haze that remains after you wipe the spray off with a terry cloth.


2. Waterless detailing products aren't good for the environment
Naysayers argue that waterless wash and wax products aren't good for the environment since they contain chemicals that are released into the air and that run off of your vehicle during rainstorms. Although there's no denying that every car cleaning product has some environmental impact, the impact of using waterless car washes is minimal compared to that of the alternatives available.
Waterless wash will save you 20 to 50 gallons of water each time you wash your vehicle, and as long as you get a VOC compliant formula, you won't have to worry about the spray emitting a harmful level of VOCs. Washing your car with detergent and water in your driveway is far more damaging to the planet since all of that soapy water, along with the residue from gasoline, oil, and exhaust fumes, will eventually drain into streams and wetland areas.


3. All waterless wash and wax products are the same
There are several differences between all of the waterless car washes on the market. Some of them come in aerosol cans, while others come in bottles and separate spray pumps. Furthermore, some brands are carnauba wax-based, while others are polish-based. You also have to consider whether the product can be applied to both painted surfaces and windows, or if it can only be applied to painted surfaces.
Other factors to keep in mind when you're shopping around for a waterless wash and wax product include the product's scent and eco-friendliness. Remember: not all waterless washes are VOC compliant. Moreover, some waterless washes smell like polish, while others have a pleasant fragrance. Obviously, you'll want to choose a formula with the latter.
 

4. Waterless car washes will damage your car's paint
It's a common misconception that waterless detailing products will react with your car's paint and damage it. The truth is that waterless cleaners actually protect your vehicle's paint by sealing it with a resistant coating. If you're still worried about paint damage, use a waterless product that's made with carnauba wax, a plant by-product that is guaranteed not to react with paint.

5. Using waterless cleaners is more expensive than washing your car with water and soap
Some people think that it's cheaper to wash their cars with water and dish soap and wax it with traditional car wax, but this is far from the truth. You can save 20 to 50 gallons of water per wash if you use a waterless wash and wax, so your water bill is sure to go down. You'll also save tons of money on car care products since you won't have to invest in a bucketful of polishes, waxes, and sponges to keep your car looking immaculate. Besides, you shouldn't use dish soap to wash your car because it can damage your vehicle.

6. You can only use waterless detailing products for pre-treatment and in-between detailing
Waterless car wash isn't just for pre-treatment and in-between detailing. It is meant to replace traditional car washing altogether. While it's true that you shouldn't use waterless wash on a vehicle that's caked with mud or sand, you can still use it on moderate dirt, bugs, tar, sap, and scuff marks. If your car is dirtier than usual, simply let the formula soak for a few minutes before wiping it off with a terry cloth.


7. Quick detailers and waterless car washes are the same thing
Quick detailers maintain your car's paint when it's just lightly dusty and you don't have time to wash and wax your car. Quick detailers are not the same as waterless wash and wax products, however, because they don't have as much cleaning power. Quick detailers are only meant to add shine to your car's paint; they are not meant to clean it.
