WashMist is our very own proprietary waterless wash which features hydrophobic polymer technology that delivers an incredibly high surface tension which adds protection to all surfaces. WashMist’s hydrophobic polymer technology enables it to actually repel water while maintaining water beading with every wash/wipe down. With WashMist, you will create a shinny paint surface that also adds another layer of protection over your existing sealants. It safely removes dirt and surface contaminants during washing, fortifies ceramic and wax protection, enhances shine, color, gloss, and ideal for all paint types and surfaces.
WashMist Waterless Wash
WashMist was developed with auto enthusiasts and our environment in mind. You can conveniently wash your car just about anywhere! On average it takes 30 – 75 gallons of water to wash a car at an automated car wash! 40 – 120 gallons at home with a hose! Using WashMist with our cutting edge technology, you will use less than one pint of water per wash! See why so many people are WashMist!
