With the need to look after water use during times of hot weather a waterless-wash-type product comes into its own and there are many available on the market.

Having used lots of them over the years, with varying degrees of success, one of the best I’ve sampled is Meguiar’s Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere, which goes on easily, wipes off fast and leaves a soft-to-the-touch silk feel to your vehicle’s bodywork while also leaving a deep gloss.

A 768ml spray bottle is good for up to around four cars and retails at £15 ENDS.
