Quick and Clean initiative: An effort to save precious ground water upto 10,000 litres per car each year
Water shortage is one of the major global problems and many countries face acute water shortage. Use of the precious potable water to wash cars add to the water shortage problems. The introduction of Mercedes-Benz Genuine ‘Quick & Clean’ offers a waterless car cleaning solution for home use.


‘Quick and Clean’ or waterless wash is an innovative initiative from Mercedes-Benz which when performed properly, gives the same or a better finish just by cleaning the vehicle with special cloth. It is an environmental friendly product which do not affect the user and the environment. When water is used for washing along with shampoo, this water is absorbed in the soil, which contaminates the minerals in the soils. Further, groundwater channel may get polluted and contaminated due to the use of alkaline solutions in shampoos. However, on the contrary, if only water is used, it leaves behind traces of minerals on the vehicles, monograms, door mouldings and in some cases, accelerates corrosion.


“Quick and Clean” offers streak free cleaning of glass as well as painted surface, rubber and plastic surface. It helps in eliminating figure prints and small residues of dirt. Being mild on skin and not harmful to health, it is biodegradable and therefore environmentally friendly. The product is approved by the material testing department of Daimler AG.
