Auto Windscreens set to save £80,000 with waterless car wash

Auto Windscreens expects to save 8.3 million litres of water and around £80k a year by using Eco Touch’s waterless car wash to keep its 400-plus vehicles clean.

The waterless car wash is a blend of nontoxic and 'earth-friendly' cleaning agents and when it is sprayed on a vehicle its surfactants lift dirt from the paintwork.

The UK windscreen repair company, which is the first large-scale business to use Eco Touch, previously used forecourt car washes. The estimated saving is based on 400 litres of water being used per weekly wash per vehicle. 

Auto Windscreens’s mobile technicians will be able to clean their vans “easily anywhere and at any time”, according to Rob Clague, managing director of Eco Touch.

Russell Hall, fleet manager at Auto Windscreens, added: “It is important that our vans are clean at all times as they represent Auto Windscreens out on the roads. Now our technicians can also be content in the knowledge that they are doing something positive to support the environment as well.”
