Lucky Earth Waterless Car Wash


Great product, saves a lot of water.  You definitely have to use some elbow grease though.


Pros: Works awesome, no toxic chemicals, saves water, seemingly ethical company

Cons: Time intensive

Lucky Earth “Waterless” Car Wash is Lucky Earth’s signature car care product and it's a great green way to wash your car without excess water. 

It’s a pretty natural solution made with water, natural surfactants (the cleaner) derived from coconut, and silicone. According to Lucky Earth, “The surfactants break up and lift the dirt from the vehicle’s surface, while the silicone allows the dirt to be easily whisked away without scratching.  The silicone leaves a smooth feel and glossy shine on automobiles, boats, and all types of motorsports and watercraft.” View the MSDS product sheet (pdf) which notes no toxic ingredients.

I have a 32 oz. spray bottle of “Waterless” Car Wash which says that it provides enough product to wash your car about 7-10 times. After using it once it looks like I'll get about 8-9 washes out of it. My car isn't huge. The wash doubles as an interior car cleaner which you can use on the dashboard, leather seats, doors, and any other non-fabric surfaces. You do have to use this product with microfiber towels.

The directions were posted on the bottle and were very simple to follow. Basically spray, wipe, buff. EASY. They also note lightly spraying super soiled areas with water first, but I didn't. 


  • It worked. My car looked clean, and better yet extra shiny both inside and out. 
  • It didn’t scratch, stain, or otherwise harm my car’s exterior or interior.
  • If it's windy outside you don't have to be worried when some of the cleaner sprays on you because it's non-toxic and zero VOC.
  • I’d suggest you get three to four towels per normal sized car, because I had two I believe, and could have used a third but they worked well, are reusable, and you can hang them to dry.
  • All packaging is recyclable.
  • $15 for 7-10 washes is a super good deal over water use costs or commercial drive-to car washes.
  • The company donates 1% of net profits to Heal the Bay.


  • My hubcaps took forever to clean.This is one area you should use a little water on first then wash.
  • If you do a good job it should take about 1 hour to wash a small car; 1.5 hours to do an excellent job. I don't mind the time, because I like free arm exercises and the time to think, but I know time is a big deal to some, so I'm putting this as a con.
  • This wash does not clean windows or fabric so you'll need two more car cleaning products. Even adding those in, this is still a good deal $ wise I think.

I think Lucky Earth has far more pros than cons. I'd recommend it as useful and eco-friendly product to my pals.

If I were you, I’d get the Starter Kit which comes with “Waterless” Car Wash  32 oz., Tire Shine  16 oz., and 4 Microfiber Towels. As noted, you can’t wash your fabric or car window with any of this so you might also want to get the Upholstery & Carpet Spot Cleaner from Lucky Earth. They don’t offer a glass cleaner, but I like Ruby Grapefruit & Herb Seventh Generation Natural Glass and Surface Cleaner
