Lucky Earth

Best Green Car Wash, July 2008

These days we may be more green minded when buying a car, but when it comes to washing it, we’re still in the dark ages. There is, however, a homegrown, guilt-free way to spiff up dirty autos: the do-it yourself waterless car wash products from the Santa Monica-based Lucky Earth. Spray the degradable cleaner on a microfi ber towel, apply it to your car’s interior, exterior, and windows, then buff with another towel. No water required . A 32-ounce, $17 bottle is good for seven to ten applications. The growing brand includes nontoxic sprays for cleaning tires and car upholstery. If you’d prefer leaving the elbow grease to someone else, Lucky Earth makes house (and parking structure) calls for a minimum of eight vehicles.
