Cleaning Question...

Hey Guys, I have a question about washing my truck. Is there anything I could use to wash my truck without water? Im sure Im not the only one in this situation but we here in Georgia have a total outside watering ban. We are not allowed to use any water outside. I still want to be able to clean my truck but due to the watering ban, I cant wash it like I normally would. I dont feel like taking it somewere and washing it there. I have the interior taken care of due to some cleaning wipes.
If anyone knows of something that I could use, Please let me know.
Lata,
Jonathan

I just use a rag or an old shirt (I normally use the old cotton tee, Black in color so its easier to wash )
The dust just wipes right off.

Try This from Chemical Guys.

I use this on my black truck and I love it. It will not induce paint marring like some of the other products do.
Use good microfiber towels when you use this. Keep the towel turned over on a regular basis. I usually go thru a few towels per application. "One" also has a good carnuba wax with it to help protect the paint finish.

What's the difference between the Classic and Ultra Ion? I just had my hood repainted, so that's relatively fresh. But the rest of the truck has the original paint. Which one should I use?

Ultra-Ion is the way to go, it leaves it a slight bit shinier, but leaves it slicker so it stay cleaner longer, and its cheaper

I hate car washes, as they recycle the water, and if the ph balance is not right the acid in the water can hurt the clear coat after a while
