Best Waterless car wash

As the title says, which is the best waterless car wash? There are so many brands out there and I don't know which to choose.

The funny thing is, im using this exact product right now. I use the CA duster, use the meguiars product, then finish off with 1Z glanz wax

I gotta say man you can't beat washing it with ol' soap and water two bucket system, waterless washes increases your scratch chances substantially.

Treat your Charger like you treat yourself, nothing like good old soap and hot water for that all cleaned feeling..

Im not a fan of waterless wash UNLESS you use it in summertime and your car has been completely detailed. By that I mean washed with car washing soap, clay, compounded, polished, and lastly had a sealant put on it. As for the waterless wash, Blackfire is top notch

JGcharger, if I were you, I throw that CA duster away they increase scratches. A great place to educate yourself is autogeek.net

I've used Dri-Wash for decades now.

I have a friend who details million dollar show cars and he completely disagrees with this. He says you should never wash a car with a bucket when you can use a waterless car wash that has higher lubrication than water and soap. I am no expert on this subject, but that was what he tells me. I actually discussed it with him at a car show this last Sunday. He prefers Griot's waterless car wash. I personally use Adam's.
