I didn't see WalMart listed on the participants. I know the list says "Some" participants. You have anything stating that Wally World is in fact a participant?

Chemical Guys stuff on sale on Amazon. Clip coupon and S&S. Anyone have experience with their products? Specifically the EcoSmart waterless wash and was in one?

I personally don't like the Chemical Guys. They have bad technique when cleaning cars, and that doesn't make me feel all that great about their product research. I'm sure it's fine, but they aren't my favorite brand.

As for the waterless wash.. well.. Have you seen their video?

This makes me cringe. I feel bad for whoever's car that is. yikes.

I could never understand how the waterless system could ever be marketed successfully knowing that all the grit is being pushed around and scratching the painted surface.

It is possible to spot clean some light soiling without scratching if you use 1 pass on a microfiber towel and never use that section of towel again. That and a good surfactant, and you'll ne nearly scratchless. But to do an entire car, you'll use a full wash load of microfiber towels (if you own that many), and you'll likely mess up.

But the guy in the video is an idiot and I feel bad for his customer's car. I'd be pissed if that was my car. Then again... I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to detailing.
