EcoSmart FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Will I scratch my vehicle without using water?

Does EcoSmart remove heavy dirt and mud?
Yes, EcoSmart will work on vehicles with light dirt contamination as well as heavy mud and soil. EcoSmart is engineered utilizing advanced hyper-surfactants that surround and capture even the heaviest dirt and contamination allowing them to be removed from the surface quickly and safely. EcoSmart pulls and removes dirt off any vehicle leaving a brilliant shine with long lasting protection.
Will EcoSmart work on black colored vehicles?
Yes! EcoSmart works great on black and dark colored vehicles. Black colored vehicles show more swirls and damage than any other color. Using EcoSmart ensures that your black colored vehicle looks as dark and rich as physically possible. Hyper efficient lubricating agents and gloss enhancers make sure that your vehicle stays swirl-free and looking great!
What is the proper way to use the EcoSmart system?
Using the EcoSmart system is quick, easy, and fun! Spray the EcoSmart solution directly onto the painted surface. Using a clean microfiber cloth, gently wipe in one direction with no pressure to remove the dirt. Once the dirt is removed, a light haze of carnauba wax will be left on the surface. Take a second clean microfiber cloth and buff off the haze to reveal a brilliant shine that is protected with the highest quality blend of carnauba wax and sealants. Detailing any vehicle has never been this easy! EcoSmart can be used in conjunction with the Eco Friendly Waterless Detailing Pod, bottle & sprayer or a Power Atomizer.
Can EcoSmart be used indoors?

EcoSmart allows the user to detail vehicles inside garages, office buildings, museums, and even private events where water is not allowed. EcoSmart opens up a whole new world of detailing. Don’t be held back by water and join the Eco-revolution!
Can EcoSmart be used in direct sunlight?
Yes. The unique emulsion characteristics of EcoSmart allow the product to be used in direct sunlight. Even in high temperatures, EcoSmart will remove dirt and contaminates leaving a perfectly clean surface with a high gloss shine that lasts. EcoSmart will give amazingly fast results in any temperature.
Can EcoSMART be used during winter months in colder climate?
EcoSMART is the ideal solution for detailing in situations with colder weather. EcoSMART can be used in colder temperatures where using traditional water systems can leave the vehicle covered in frozen ice. EcoSMART allows the user to work efficiently in any environment and offers a great way to keep your car looking great during the winter months.
Can I use EcoSmart for my business?
Yes! The EPA - Environmental Protection Agency - leads the nation's environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts. The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency is to protect human health and the environment. In California, Texas, Florida and many other states where large bodies of water exist, the EPA requires detailers and mobile detailers to be 100% compliant by containing run-off wash water or by using a waterless detailing system. Using EcoSmart to wash cars complies with this requirement.

“Two of us started with Ecosmart waterless wash. Then applied Blacklight and V7 topped with Celeste Detaglio v2. Metal Shine was used on the diamond plate. V.R.P was applied to the tire and rubber trim. Then we got a thunderstorm and well, where did I put the Ecosmart? The Metal Shine worked great with little effort. “
