It’s Giveaway Time (there’s a review too)

24 Mar

Waaaaay back last fall I was sent a product to try, review and giveaway. Well, it was cold out, so the afore mentioned product sat under my kitchen sink for months and months. FINALLY, we had a bit of warm weather, so I broke it out and gave it a try.

I have to say I was more than skeptical about this product. I grew up in a house of cars (that’s cars not cards). My Dad always had a little something special in the garage. Exotic Porches turned in to restored classics and street rods. Besides the speciality cars that he kept in our garage, he was meticulous in the cleaning of the everyday cars. While I’ve never been that good at keeping my cars clean, it’s been ingrained in my head that you never, I repeat NEVER wash a dry car. Washing a car without water is a sacrilege where I come from.

Then Washdrops entered my life. Like I said, I was already skeptical about this product, I mean how good can something clean without water? I was down right scared to use this product, washing a dry car is a surefire way to destroy a paint job…Or is it?

The test…

While it was a beautifully warm day, it was still a little chilly for me to wash my car, so I enlisted the help of my lovely assistant (AKA my husband). As I followed him around the car with my iPhone snapping pictures I was truly amazed. Washdrops work, they REALLY work. My once filthy, disgusting, salt and road grime covered car was shining like the day we drove it off the showroom floor. When Bill was done we both just stood there looking at the car with our mouths hanging open. Bill liked it so much, he said he wanted more for his equipment at work.

So how does it work???

Using Washdrops really couldn’t be easier. Step one: Get a bucket and fill it with one (1) gallon of water. Step Two: Mix in one ounce (3 capfuls) of the Washdrops solution. Step Three: Apply with a clean sponge or cloth a section at a time. Step Four: Dry. There you have it folks, four steps and you have a clean car. No more wet tee shirt contests in your driveway. No more soggy feet. No more wrestling the hose.

Washdrops took everything I thought I knew about washing a car and threw it out the window. It left behind no scratches, no water marks, and most importantly no dirt. Not only did Washdrops make washing a car a cleaner job, it’s good for the environment too. I don’t know how many gallons of water you would use to wash your car the “traditional” way, but I know it’s A LOT more than 1. So, you’re conserving water. The Washdrops solution is solvent free, butyl free, phosphate free and ammonia free, so you’re not sending any chemicals down the driveway. When you’re done just dump to water in the lawn or flowerbed, no worries, it’s not going to kill your plant life. Saving the planet one car wash at a time!
