Does anybody have experience using the waterless carwash products:

Chemicalguys.com: http://www.chemicalguys.com/Waterles...wash_s/215.htm
Go clean: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows...=en#product_aa

Less water utilising:
Optimum car wash & wax: http://www.eshine.ca/optimum_no_rins...650.php?cat=15

I am looking to find a product that I can utilize every 1-2 weeks to keep the car clean and shiny in between the 2 yearly full detailing.

I tried the optimum once a few years ago on a silver car. I could not see any new scratches, but I did not find the lubricity to be that good. For my winter routine I settled on the touchless laser wash 4000 (found at some former Sunoco stations - drive in, park car, and apparatus moves around and does the cleaning). For spring/summer, I do a traditional two bucket wash.

Hot tap water or gentle use of a seamer and then a shop vac to vacuum out the carpet. All you want to do is melt and disolve the salt and remove the salty water.

Worked great for me on 25 year old E30 carpet.
