How Many Gallons Are Wasted by Not Washing With Waterless

One of the biggest reasons that people have for switching over to the waterless car wash is because it is extremely environmentally friendly. Using a waterless car wash, as the name implies uses no water at all which is huge as it makes a traditional car wash obsolete. Once the waterless car wash becomes the industry standard, a traditional car wash will be seen as nothing more than what it really is – a waste of water. Still though, some people need a little bit more inspiration before they actually make the jump to waterless. We thought that we would help them out by showing exactly how much water they are wasting by using water to wash their car.

According to the EPA, the average person uses (read: wastes) 116 gallons of water every time they wash their car. Can you picture how much water that is? Imagine a gallon of water bought from the store, or if you don’t buy bottled water, then bottled milk. Now imagine 116 of those. It is probably enough to fill your entire living room and then some. Now just try to imagine that every time you wash your car with water, you are just throwing that much water away. Seems a little selfish, especially because there are places around the world, even in America, suffering from water shortage.

If you are like the average person then you probably wash your car more than once a month. From talking to people the average frequency that they wash their car is every 2 weeks. That means people that are washing their car with water are wasting 232 gallons of water per month and that is if they only have one car. If they have 2 cars that number jumps to 464 gallons of water per month. That is easily enough to fill a large pool. What if someone suggested that you change you empty your pool once a month and replace the water. Wouldn’t you see it as a huge waste of water?

We understand that in some cases a bit of waste here and there is OK. Restaurants waste food when they throw away uneaten portions but it isn’t like they can just give that food to the next customer. It would be unhygienic. When it comes to washing your car though, there is a perfect solution. If you use the waterless car wash then you will never have to waste that much water ever again.

To us it really seems like a no-brainer and if you really think about it then it will seem like a no-brainer to you as well. The waterless car wash is the best solution available to helping you save water and we hope that more people are able to realize that as soon as possible. It is time for us to stop wasting water and start using the more eco-friendly options. Tell your friends, tell your family – the waterless car wash is the future of eco-friendly auto care.
