How to Start a Mobile Waterless Car Wash Busines

Mobile waterless car wash businesses help vehicles to stay cleaner without harming the environment

Starting a mobile waterless car wash business allows you to focus on helping the environment and putting money in your pocket at the same time by cleaning cars. Mobile waterless car wash businesses service individual drivers, industries, auto showrooms, automotive repair centers and companies such as taxi and limo services. If you choose to be a part of this exciting business, you can grow your business as your customer base expands and create a fleet of waterless car wash vehicles that travel around your service area.


Study other car wash companies in your area. Determine the number of car wash companies in your immediate area. Know the number of companies that use water and those that are waterless because both types will be competition for you. Consider taking your car to these competitors to test the quality of their car wash services. Find out their rates and create a list of services that have lower prices. Add any other services you think might be marketable.2

Find a supplier. Search for a source of waterless car wash products that are organic and biodegradable so you do less harm to the environment. Use these “green” products on your own car first to ensure the products do the job they claim to be able to do. Select a supplier with products that have earned certification from the Environmental Protection Agency as environmentally friendly. You will need products to clean the windows, rims, tires, solutions to treat the interior seating of the car and organic bug-removing products. Be sure to purchase a quality air-freshener to spray in the car after cleaning.

Make sure your vehicle is in good condition, clean and has a banner displaying your company information on the side to advertise your business. Remember you will be operating a business, so you need to present a professional appearance. Consider purchasing shirts with the name of your business on the front and back of the shirt and pants that are the same color as your shirt.
Market your business. Tell your friends, family and neighbors you are starting a mobile waterless car wash business. Let them know they will get a 50 percent discount off normal rates if they send you one client.

Eco Friendly Car Wash…things you dont know

Few people realize that washing our cars in our driveways is one of the most environmentally un-friendly chores we can do around the house. Unlike household waste water that enters sewers or septic systems and undergoes treatment before it is discharged into the environment, what runs off from your car goes right into storm drains — and eventually into rivers, streams, creeks and wetlands where it poisons aquatic life and wreaks other ecosystem havoc. After all, that water is loaded with a witch’s brew of gasoline, oil and residues from exhaust fumes — as well as the harsh detergents being used for the washing itself.

Commercial Car Washes Treat Waste Water
On the other hand, federal laws in both the U.S. and Canada require commercial carwash facilities to drain their wastewater into sewer systems, so it gets treated before it is discharged back into the great outdoors. And commercial car washes use computer controlled systems and high-pressure nozzles and pumps that minimize water usage. Many also recycle and re-use the rinse water.

The International Carwash Association, an industry group representing commercial car wash companies, reports that automatic car washes use less than half the water of even the most careful home car washer. According to one report, washing a car at home typically uses between 80 and 140 gallons of water, while a commercial car wash averages less than 45 gallons per car.

Think Green When Washing Your Car
If you must wash your car at home, choose a biodegradable soap specifically formulated for automotive parts, such as Simple Green’s Car Wash or Gliptone’s Wash ‘n Glow. Or you can make your own biodegradable car wash by mixing one cup of liquid dishwashing detergent and 3/4 cup of powdered laundry detergent (each should be chlorine- and phosphate-free and non-petroleum-based) with three gallons of water. This concentrate can then be used sparingly with water over exterior car surfaces.

Even when using green-friendly cleaners, it is better to avoid the driveway and instead wash your car on your lawn or over dirt so that the toxic waste water can be absorbed and neutralized in soil instead of flowing directly into storm drains or open water bodies. Also, try to sop up or disperse those sudsy puddles that remain after you’re done. They contain toxic residues and can tempt thirsty animals.

Waterless Car Wash Products are Good for Small Jobs
One way to avoid such problems altogether is to wash your car using any number of waterless formulas available, which are especially handy for spot cleaning and are applied via spray bottle and then wiped off with a cloth. Freedom Waterless Car Wash is a leading product in this growing field.

A Better Car Wash Option for Fundraising
One last caution: Kids and parents planning a fundraising car wash event should know that they might be violating clean water laws if run-off is not contained and disposed of properly. Washington’s Puget Sound Carwash Association, for one, allows fund-raisers to sell tickets redeemable at local car washes, enabling the organizations to still make money while keeping dry and keeping local waterways clean.

weduit Waterless Car Wash


I have been using weduit Waterless Car Wash products for about 2 years.  Here in south central Texas it’s been a struggle trying to keep our vehicles clean.  We have been in drought conditions and this past summer we advanced to extreme drought conditions.  We have been, and continue to be under mandatory water use restrictions.  Thankfully, with weduit Waterless Car Wash I am able to keep my families’ vehicles clean.

I use Complete Clean, DuduiTpro, Multiclean and Wheels.  My favorite is the Wheels.  I no longer have to scrub my tires in order to get them clean.  This stuff works like magic.  I spray all of my tires first, then I clean the rest of the car with the DuduiTpro by the time I’m done cleaning the care, the tires are dry and I’m ready to drive.

Everyday when I get home from work, I dust off my care with a duster and give a quick spray and wipe with the DuduiTpro

The only negative (?) comment I have is that I am no longer able to put my car cover on by myself.  The surface is so slick that the cover slides off before I can get it installed properly.  It now takes two people to put the cover on, and my wife laughs every time I ask for her help.

Too often claims are made by the manufacturer about their product only to be disappointed by the results we consumers actually receive.  It is refreshing to use a product that actually performs as it’s claimed to perform.  I would (and do) recommend weduit Waterless Car Wash products because they perform great and it’s friendly for our environment.
