Ease of use
Permaclear Pro Dry Clean produced a fine mist, which was easy to rub in, and it buffed up well. It didn't feel as premium as the other waterless cleaners we tested, but was just as straightforward to use.

Surface dirt came away immediately, and while heavy scrubbing didn't remove all black spots, paintwork was left sparkling if a little less glossy than the other waterless washes.

Value for money
Not as good value for money as the waterless Ultimate Finish, but this product does work a treat.
