What is Waterless??
Definition borrowed from Wikipedia.com A technique used to wash a vehicle without the use of water (also called a waterless car wash). This technique uses a product that contains many different ingredients, including wetting agents , lubricants and protectants. The detergents and wetting agents in the product combine to soften and emulsify surface grime, while a specific blend of fluids and lubricants attach a microscopic layer of protectant to the surface. The protectant is often an extremely rare (and expensive) substance which provides a bonded layer of protection against any remaining abrasive not broken down by the detergents and wetting agents. The protectant often contains extensive cross linked polymers , which make it extremely effective as a car wax or glaze . The product often contains a complex mixture of cleaning elements along with the glaze ingredients. With proper application, the product lifts dirt from the vehicle by emulsification. The product surrounds dirt molecules, lifting them from the paint surface, before you start to wipe. At the same time, the application process initiates the cross chain polymer linking process that results in an extremely shiny, highly protective glaze finish. All this happens very rapidly due to the balance of ingredients within the product itself. The application process does not involve high pressure nor extensive rubbing. The application process also does not require “soaking” – using a high volume of product. When used in compliance with its “directions for use,” the vehicle will shine and water will bead on it. Waterless Car Washes have been designed as a high-end car-care product for use on any car, truck, bike, boat or plane. It is made with the finest ingredients available. Our waterless car wash product s allows you the ability to clean without using soaps, buckets and water hoses. All you need is two towels and a bottle of our product.

Why should I have my vehicle detailed?
We believe that your car takes care of you so let us take care of your car. The exterior finish of your car under goes a daily and harsh assault from radiant and ultraviolet energy, acid rain, salt, pollution, insect fluids and bird droppings. The Detailing Knights combat these elements, bringing back your cars original and luxurious finish. The interior of your car also takes a beating with crumbs left behind by kids, spilt drinks, pet hair and constant wear and tear. Detailing Knights battle this with care to leave the inside of your car looking, feeling and smelling like new.
Why go waterless?
There are many reasons why using a “waterless car wash” product to clean your car, boat, motorcycle and RV is a good idea. Here are a few here: 1. Save Water: According to the EPA, the average person will waste 116 gallons of water while cleaning their car in their driveway. The average stand-alone “car wash” will use over 40 gallons of water per car. This is a lot of soapy grey/ contaminated water going down the storm drain and into the environment. It only takes 2-4 ounces of the Waterless Car Wash product to clean the average size car. The soiled towels are cleaned in the washing machine and only take a few ounces of soap & water per towel.
2. Save Time: Cleaning your car in your driveway or at the car wash with water takes a lot of time. To Drive to, wait in line, wash and dry will range from 30-60 minutes. Using a Mobile Waterless Car Wash service or product on your own, you don’t have to wait in line or drive somewhere to clean it. It can be easily cleaned virtually anywhere/ any time. It is fast. Just spray on, rub in and wipe off. The first time you use it, you will probably use too much product and it may take you 20-40 minutes. After your first couple of uses, it will go faster. You will also notice the surface will be super slick and the anti-static properties will bounce the dirt off for weeks. This means you will clean your car less times per month and your car will great at all times. Touch up is very easy and even quicker.
3. Saves Effort: Waterless Car Wash products are very easy to use. Yes, easy on and easy off, resulting in a brilliant velvety shine. It requires no heavy buffing to wear your arm out.
4. Value: You can easily clean 5-10 vehicles with one 32 oz bottle.
5. Keep the value of your vehicle: These days cars cost are much more than ever and the economic downturn has forced people to keep for a longer period of time. It is our opinion that if you take good care of your car and clean and polish it regularly, you will have a higher resale value than if you let it go or run it through the “car wash” regularly.

We recommend detailing the exterior at least once a month and the interior once after winter and once before winter.
How long does it take to complete?
A job takes between an hour to 4 hours depending on the size of the vehicle and what needs to be done.
How long will the car stay clean??
The exterior will stay clean for 2-4 weeks. The washes actually repel the dirt away from the car this dust can simply be wiped away with a suck wiping using the microfiber towel. The interior can be dusted with a microfibre cloth peridocially, but every 3-6 months is the normal time to have the interior cleaned again.
