Default Waterless Wash-n-wax

We have a Vehicle that we only take out on dry days, once a fortnight on average.

It does need a clean after a few trips out and I had thought about one of these waterless Wash & Guard potions that you spray on and polish up with a couple of Micro-fibre cloths.

It has been some years since I used this stuff and it always made the car look good, if only for a few days.

Any thoughts? for and against?

I don't understand the technological goings on with that stuff, but logic tells me that any dirt grit will be spread about and leave scratches (or at least swirls) .
IMHO, You can't beat the old fashioned way and a bit of elbow grease for proper pretection

I've used rapid detailer for several years and use it as s quick wipe down when a car is essentially clean but may have the off finger mark etc , seems ok
