Washing a Caravan with a Waterless Cleaner . Some time ago I purchased a waterless cleaner to wash my caravan when I was onsite. Caravan And Motorhome Clubs sites at least, don’t allow you to “wash” you caravan when on site. I only assume it’s to do with water consumption and it’s probably generally antisocial to spray a hose pipe around when other people are relaxing. At least this is what I always thought, but I can’t find any specific advice about it. Anyway a waterless wash could be ok?
What is a waterless caravan cleaner?Well, it’s exactly what it says. You get a bottle of stuff, you spray it on the caravan rub it in, then rub it off, simple. However, I’ve used these in the past on my car. Are they any good on the car? Well, it depends. It actually depends how dirty your car is. If you’ve just been rallying and the car is covered in mud, there is no way a waterless cleaner is going to be of any use at all. You’re going to need to jet wash it first. I’ve tried it. I mean I wasn’t rallying but to look at the car you might have thought I had been. Generally when I clean the car I hose it down, or jet wash it first. Then wash it with a sponge using a certain make of car shampoo. Which one I use is mainly down to which one is cheapest at Halford. I’ve tried expensive ones, and I don’t think they’re any better.
Car PolishIn my opinion wax is a different matter. Any fool shampoo can clean a car, why you could probably use Lynx and get the Ladies chasing you. (Sorry a bit sexist I know). So why is wax different? Well, I’ve used many different waxes, or polishes on the car and my favourite is Autoglym Super Resin Polish.

Was the Waterless Cleaner Any Good?Not to keep you hanging on like Simon Cowell, the answer is “I didn’t like it”. I loved it! It wasn’t as good as polish at getting real stubborn marks like tar spots off the front, but all things considered it was really good. I didn’t need to use the hose. I did use it on the roof, but that was my being a bit stupid and not thinking the bottle would last. I’d forgotten I’d bought 2. 1 litre is enough for our caravan, which is a twin axle 7.9 metre long caravan. It wouldn’t stretch to 2 washes, but I had some left.
