View Full Version : RECOMMENDED BUY : 3M Waterless Wash & Wax... It Actually Works Well

About a week ago, 3M sent me a sample of a new Waterless Wash & Wax (https://amzn.to/2sv2Q4p) they will be releasing and asked if I'd give it a try. Of course, being that we drive Jeeps that can get pretty dirty, I didn't know how useful something like this would be especially since it isn't intended for use on vehicles with "heavy dirt, mud, tar or grime" on it. But, we do own a lot of Jeeps and like any vehicle, they can get plenty dirty just from driving around town, sitting out in the driveway or even being parked in a garage for an extended period of time. This is really what their new Waterless Wash & Wax is made for and so I was happy to give it a try.

What is surprising about the 3M Waterless Wash & Wax is that even though it's made to give your paint a high gloss shine, it's also made to be used on ALL the exterior surfaces of your vehicle including the plastic trim, metals like aluminum or chrome wheels and even the rubber of your tires. All you have to do is spray it on and wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. While each can is supposed to retail for $13.95, they should be able to completely wash up to 2-3 average size vehicles.

You can now buy 3M Waterless Wash & Wax here:
https://amzn.to/2sv2Q4p

Here's a shot of what the can looks like.

Again, this product is intended for use on vehicles that are dusty or just lightly dirty. If you've got caked on mud from the trail, I wouldn't use this waterless wash & wax to clean it.
http://wayalife.com/photos/upload/2017/02/17/20170217101100-34158782.jpg

That being said, the best way to use this product is to do it in your garage or under some kind of shade. Simply shake well, spray a light mist on a small section of your Jeep.
http://wayalife.com/photos/upload/2017/02/17/20170217101103-1c151ab6.jpg

Immediately wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth until it's streak free. Fold and turn the cloth as needed and that's it.
http://wayalife.com/photos/upload/2017/02/17/20170217101105-0dbd5622.jpg

And that's all there is to it.
http://wayalife.com/photos/upload/2017/02/17/20170217101108-8d55e279.jpg

After doing a small test with the 3M Waterless Wash & Wax and seeing how well it worked, I decided to remove the decals we had on the side of our Renegade's doors and do the whole thing. Surprisingly, this stuff did a great job of shining up the paint and I think I was more impress with that then anything else. For sure, I could totally see myself picking up more of it just to keep the paint looking nice. Of course, it did a pretty good job of making everything else look good too. :crazyeyes:
http://wayalife.com/photos/upload/2017/02/17/20170217101130-a13b4153.jpg

Anyway, I just thought I'd share my experiences using this new 3M Waterless Wash & Wax for anyone who might be interested. I contacted them after the fact and was told that it should be available on Amazon and at other auto retailers soon.

UPDATE: 3M Waterless Wash & Wax is now available for sale on Amazon and you can buy it here:

Looks good. I may have to look into that. While you were using it on a dirty surface, any fears that scratching may occur or did you notice any concerns rubbing the cloth on the dirt?

I did have fears of it scratching the paint and so I initially tested it on a small area and where the dirt was more like a heavy dust rather than caked on mud. Unlike other quick detailers I've used in the past where they were just like a liquid, this 3M stuff sprayed out in a foam... kind of like Pledge wood furniture cleaner. I just wiped the foam clean and all was good.

Oh, did I mention that it smells kind of nice too LOL

That's a great question especially being that a little water and a microfiber cloth is what I have always used in the past to do a quick cleaning. The benefit of this 3M stuff is that it does a better job of cleaning up the dirt and without leaving a hazy film or streaking that I've always seen when I just used water. Once I wiped the stuff off, the paint looked and FELT like it had just been waxed. For a test, I actually cleaned an area of paint with just water and then next to it, with this 3M stuff and then I dragged my fingers across both. On the side that was just cleaned with water, my finger tips felt like they were sticking to the paint and as soon as I got to the 3M side, they glided across the paint.

I know exactly what you mean. I've used some Mothers Show & Shine before and while it looked great right after applying it, my paint just looked "pretty good" a day or two after. I applied this 3M stuff the day before yesterday and only got around to writing a review of it this morning. I just went out side to give my Renegade a look and honestly, it still looks great.

So that it isn't missed, I did get this stuff sent to me for FREE and so that I could test it out. I'm sure this may make a difference in how some of you might receive what I'm saying and I'd completely understand that. For those of you who trust me, I am simply sharing what I've seen. So far, I really like the stuff and I am under NO obligation to say as much. :cool:

This seems like such a first world problem product, but it actually makes sense for me since my JK spends the vast majority of it's life in my garage with my work travel. My wife still uses the garage while I'm away, so this might make perfect sense to use for the occasional quick clean.

Thanks for the review Eddie!

$10 can is supposed to last 2-3* vehicles.

For that price point, I think it's a great solution for the intermediary periods between wheeling. Not accounting for the nasty chemical salt that we get around here in winter. If we ever get any snow this year that is

Just because I'm intrigued, this stuff looks pretty cool... My only question is... How does it do on pine sap? I've got a beautiful pine in my front yard... (only decent tree that isn't a friggin palm on the block) only thing is this time of the year it always sheds/sprays little tiny drops(kind of like a mist) of sap all over my Jeep and the wife's Expedition. So I'm constantly having to wash and wax hers... Mine stays in the garage 90% of the time... Hers doesn't fit... Would love to know if this stuff is good enough to help with that.

Too soon to tell as to how it would hold up to pine sap falling on it but I doubt it would clean it off.

I've never really liked the quick detailers I've used before. They never seem to keep my vehicles looking clean more than a couple days, which just isn't worth the price of some. But depending on how long your Renegade stays looking good, I might have to pick up a can and try it out myself

I like the fact that you can use this on different surfaces. You won't need a bottle of wax, trim detailed, rim cleaner, etc. definitely going to pick up a can when it's released and give it a try. Will make the cleaning supply cabinet a lot neater!

I have always found that a normal wax on black plastic trim would turn into a whitish fog as soon as it dries. I did spray this stuff on everything as a test and wiped it off as instructed and so far, I see nothing like that. Granted, all it did was make the trim look "clean" but not deep and rich the way Armoral or other plastic protectant will. Needless to say, I mainly used it to make my paint look good. I'll try to take a before and after shot of what it does on one of my dirty JK fenders so that you can see what it looks like.

You definitely won't need wax and while a trim detailer isn't necessary, you may still want to use some if you're wanting a deeper and richer black look.

Okay, so I tried this 3M stuff on a mud stained JK fender flare and... it doesn't do a whole lot. At first, it made things look 100% better as you can see in the shot below.
244870

But, once it dried completely, the mud stains came back.

Like I had said earlier, the 3M stuff will make paint look great and do a good job of cleaning everything else but they won't make mud stained trim look black again.

The single best thing you can do is use some soapy water, a fine scrub brush or tooth brush and a lot of elbow grease. That'll get it back to looking like new and without the use of any chemicals. However, it's a ton of work and depressing as hell to see it go right back to the way it was before just after one run. With that said, a generous application of a plastic/vinyl protectant like Armoral or the like will do a good job as well. It may take more than one application but it'll get it looking better.

I like to use Optimum No Rinse with Wax for both rinseless and waterless washes. To do a waterless wash I use the 256:1 dilution ratio and fill my spray bottle. I then spray somewhat liberally over the panel and use an MF towel folded into quarters to wipe the dirt off. When wiping use the weight of the towel to lift the dirt away and not scratch the paint. I follow with a dry towel and buff dry. ONR with wax (green solution) or blue without wax can be used on paint, glass, vinyl, carpet, dashboards, etc.

I normally follow with Meguiars Synthetic Xpress wax, it's also safe inside and outside the vehicle, on glass, and does not turn white on the black plastic surfaces.

I detail cars for a side hustle and use this stuff all the time, for extra protection.

Another product that will work on the fenders to get that black again is Solution Finish, the product lasts for roughly 12 to 14 months, but in some of the harsher western climates it may be closer to 8 months before another application would need to be applied.

That said, the 3M product looks like it would be handy to keep in the gear bag for quick cleanup's while out at a meet and greet or car show.

Since I got my black JK Iíve been trying new methods of washing to avoid swirl marks & scratches.... (this quickly ended with all the trail pin striping Haha). But I like to hit a local self wash, spray it down, then low spot rinse and drive home fast to get the water off.... works great on my white truck but with the black it still leaves a subtle dirt haze.... so then I do a quick wipe down with an instant detailer.

Funny you would say as much. Most of my Jeeps have been white or at least a light enough color where I wouldn't have given something like this much thought. I would have loved to have this stuff back when we still had Nemo which was Sunburst Orange but after getting our red Renegade, I was really happy to have this stuff to test out. I'd love to know how it works out on black which can be one of the toughest colors to deal with for sure.

Iím curious how this 3M stuff would work in between washes.... But I have a hard time wiping any color finish without a rinse first.

When I had my black Lincoln Navigator, the California Duster was a lifesaver in-between washes.

Ive had black in the past... I'm telling you... Foam cannon, Pressure wash, and good spunges/towels for the WIN if you don't want swirls :twocents:

I here ya and will take your word for it... but busting out a pressure washer, a foam cannon and having that foamy wax all over my driveway.... is not efficient to me. I like car washes like I like my Women.... Quick & Easy (with minimal prep & cleanup)

Foamy wax?!?! just use the soap! :crazyeyes:

Fair enough! My pressure washer/foam cannon is easier to use then a garden hose with a nozzle. to each their own I suppose. :thumb:

Holy hell!! That's some mark up :shock:
Everything in Canada has a crazy Mark up. It really hurts the back pocket when buying parts from the US.

......I'd love to know how it works out on black which can be one of the toughest colors to deal with for sure.

Got it!

Did a couple Quick tests already and I Fín Love it!! When I got back from the trip last week I took the Jeep to a self wash and did a Soapy power wash and rinse only.... I never wiped it down... so itís perfect to test this stuff..

You can see the Light Dirty & Spoty Residue left behind:

Whatís Awesome about this stuff (compared to an instant detailer) is itís FAST! Spray, wipe, Done. It Cleans, then instantly feels Waxed. Where as the ďInstant detailerĒ has to be worked in more and doesnít really clean as much as cover...

Iím still going to wash the Jeep Today because there is still some Sandy Dirt Present.... but when the Jeep sits in the driveway for a week and gets a little grimy from Dew and Dust, I will definitely use this for a quick wipe down.

Awesome Product [emoji1360]
