Eco Touch Sustainable Car Care Products: Review & Giveaway

 

I have reviewed a good deal of eco-friendly cleaners over the past few months here on Blommi, so I was very pleased to have the opportunity to clean my car in a green manner, as well.  Eco Touch is the maker of a sustainable line of car care products.  I was sent the Waterless Car Wash, Quick Wax, All-Purpose Cleaner, Dashboard Protect and a couple microfiber towels.

It took a little time after the products arrived to get a good day to clean our vehicles, but a couple weeks ago my husband had the opportunity to try out the two interior cleaners.  He reported to me that they worked well, but since I was using our SUV at the time, he didn’t get the chance to do the interior on it.  I decided to do it myself this morning.

I immediately noticed the lack of chemical odors when I sprayed the All-Purpose cleaner onto my dashboard.  I am ashamed to admit, my dash was quite filthy, but the Eco Touch cleaner cut right through the grime.  I then applied some of the Dashboard Protect.  I didn’t notice the sheen it gave my dash until later on, when driving around doing errands, but it really had given my interior a fresh look.

I didn’t have the ambition to wash my whole SUV, nor did my daughter have the patience to wait for me to do it, but I did wash and wax half my hood, to see how the products performed.  I am now driving around with half my hood shiny and clean.  The products worked well, and were quick and easy to use.  There was no concern about getting wet, since no water was used.  I took some  photos, but they really didn’t depict how well the product worked, so I grabbed this video off the Eco Touch website.

Eco Touch car care products would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift.  Perfect for the Dad who loves both his car and the environment.  I suggest picking a few products, along with some microfiber towels.  I had the recycled plastic caddy (shown above) on hand, and I think something similar would make a great gift presentation.  Be sure to check out the deals Eco Touch has on kits. The Waterless Wash & Wax Kit is only $19.99, and they also offer a bottle each of  all six of their products, for just $49.99.
