WW turns white and loses coconut smell?

Question

Recommended Posts

Hi friends, and indeed, the Waterless Wash is colored and scented with an organic dye, and scent. Good news: You can spray it inside the house, and breathe it in without so much as an, 'aaaahhhhhhhhh.' Bad news, the color and sometimes scent can fade away quickly.

 

Keeping it out of the sun will keep it blue for longer, and we are looking at ways to improve the longevity of the light blue spray!

 

As always, if it bugs you, take advantage of our 110% guarantee!

 

Thanks for your business, and the less blue Waterless Wash does in fact work as well as the extra blue!

That is good to know Adam! I haven't had mine turn white yet, but it does form a white ring in the plastic like what the old DS formula did. Actually the old DS turned the entire bottle white, haven't noticed it happening with the newer stuff.

I'm going to miss the coconut scent.:(

I'm going to miss my wife asking if I'm going to coconut her car. I have gallon of the gray WW that I haven't opened yet, so it should last me a while.

 

Joey,

Did you survive that hail storm in OKC? Lucky, it all broke up by the time it hit us.

I keep all of my adams stuff indoors just to be safe from heat and cold both. My WW lost its color pretty much but I used it this past weekend after doing some waxing on my gf's car. It still had the smell, and worked just like it did when it was really really blue. No issues at all. :rockon:

Yeah, it missed us by about a mile. We got lucky this week and the week before. I got a softball size hole in my roof from the week before, but amazingly, that was the only damage to the roof. So glad I keep my cars parked in the garage. Thanks for asking.

mine came out of the shipping box grey, i thought it was wierd it wasn't blue like the pics. i guess i need to shake it up and see if it changes color.

 

Same here. I tried shaking it to no avail. However, the scent is definitely there. I used it on my car last night, and the garage smelled like WCW for the next few hours. Still worked great even though it was gray.

First off, thanks for your kind words, and I apologize for the color and scent loss in the Waterless Wash.

 

We broke down the WW to find out what is causing the color to fade. BINGO! It's the coconut fragrance, which is an oil based scent.

 

So, we are now changing the scent to a non-oil based scent, which will keep the product a crispy blue color. New scent? We have found 'Green Apple' to be super nice, and most importantly, it's a non-oil-based and long lasting scent. (Hoping to make a batch shortly, and have it available in the next few weeks.)

 

I'm sure most of you realize, we are a very small company, and the learning curve applies often! As long as we have customers like you, and a forum like this to get feedback, we will continue to tweak and improve products.

 

I'll keep you posted and thanks for your kind words here!

I know this is a serious longshot here but any chance of there being a color free version? Or perhaps even DS that is clear? Reason being with the clear bra applied to the front of the car I am afraid to use the pink stuff on it for fear of staining and the grey WW made me much less nervous. It would be nice to be able to just do the entire car w/o switching products for a quick wipe down:)

Glad you came out alright!! Even though a hole in the roof can be a bad deal. Glad it was small.

There was a thread on this a few months ago. If I remember correctly it has something to do with the organtic dye and scent that sometimes changes. It works just the same. My gallon has turned gray, but works just as good and still smells the same.

Maybe its time for a color change, maybe a different color that would hold up with the chemicals better?

We played this over the course of this week. Testing extensively with faded WW versus a fresh new batch. The good news was that it made absolutely ZERO difference in the performance of the product, its purely aesthetic. I keep mine locked away in a very well insulated and dark cabinet and mine has only faded slightly. The smell has diminished slightly, but not much at all IMO.
