    I would be very surprised if Eco Wash landed at Repco. From what I can tell, the only rinse-less wash concentrate sold at a big box store in Australia is Bowden's Own Dry Spell, and I can almost guarantee that it's not a strong seller. Australia is not a big rinse-less market, both from need and from a lack of education on the subject. The average guy or girl entering Repco/Supercheap/Autobarn is probably not looking for a rinse-less wash, or even what to do with one. I don't mean that to be rude, it's just my observation.

    I also note that Koch Chemie RRW is missing in action despite it having gone on sale elsewhere earlier this year. I don't think RRW is a priority for the local importer. In fact, the Gyeon Eco Wash is only available at the official distributor (CCP), at this stage the rest of the Gyeon retailers have ignored it, which is very strange considering how new Gyeon products are seen as hot property.

    I get what you mean by that the average customer at an auto chain store not being the type to be looking for that sort of product, but with a name like Eco Wash it can be targeted at a certain market. They are good for when we have water restrictions, which is why I originally bought ONR.

    I just had a great idea, they could market it as a wash for both electric and hybrid vehicles, it would really work well with the self righteousness that the owners sometimes exude. The same reason they often option their vehicles with vegan leather, so they have something else they can talk at you about.

    MTM order



    6 hose quick Connects. These are super nice and fluid. Wish I woulda ordered my PW QC from them now.



    Some more wide bottom bottles. The standard (not wide mouth) bottles are on sale (clearance) for really cheap. Since I have always use
    D a 2oz mini measuring cup I see no value on wide mouth.

    Also like the fact they have lids so I can store different liquids



    Lastly in trying to ease up my wash process I like to pre foam before rinsless but lugging out the PW can be a pain and I feel BHAF, touchless ans Labo Primus removes dirt better with pressure.

    Hoping this will work connected to my hose (hence investing in Quick disconnects.




    Hoping pre foam with IK E foam pro 12. Dwell. Rinse with Hydroshot. 710 PSi (guessing itís max) should be enough. Then rinseless with sponge.

    Weíll seeÖ

    I am super curious to see your results

    What you said above that I bolded is most likely spot on and I didn't take it into consideration when I was talking yesterday about using those chemicals and just trying to follow them up and remove them with a rinseless wash in the winter

    I don't spray those on an agitate or wipe them off during the summer so why would I assume I could do that in the winter, even using a rinseless wash

    It is hard to take high pressure water out of the equation when talking about road film, especially winter crap

    Edited to add: I am jealous of your super nice MTM hose connects

    I looked at the same sale, I'm still deciding whether to place an order, but I've been using less product recently, I think it's a combination of the weather and having both vehicles protected by the NV twins, and Boost V2.
