A spray on wax system has been created that cleans cars without water. Its main ingredient is Carnauba wax, from a Brazilian plant, which is the same wax used to keep surfboards in peak condition.
Smartwax, the makers of Smartwax One, say that it enables you to wash and wax your vehicle “without one drop of water, regardless of how dirty.”
Car owners could save hundreds of litres of water, since cleaning a car with a hose uses more than 500 litres an hour, according to Thames Water.
