Get Your Car Squeaky Green


Unfortunately, my hometown of Los Angeles is best known for Hollywood, Malibu, Beverly Hills and traffic. Most of us own cars out of necessity, because it’s virtually impossible to get around without one.

As a result, there’s a car wash on almost every corner and you dare not drive if your car isn’t glossy. Just look! We Angelenos wash our cars so often it could be labeled an obsession, which makes the green in me scream what about all that water? Is a clean car really all that crucial anyway?

If car cleanliness is high up on your list (right after go green, of course), there’s a way to keep it squeaky green without using any water at all. The answer comes in a 32 oz. spray bottle from Lucky Earth.

The Waterless Car Wash is a natural product, free of fragrance, dyes or chemicals. Lucky Earth claims it will keep your car cleaner longer, as well as protect the paint from pollutants and other harsh elements. And at $16.99 and 7-10 washes per bottle, the price can’t be beat. It’s a small, simple way to green up your lifestyle.

Did you drive to the office dirty today? Take a bottle to the parking garage during your lunch break, spray it on, wipe it off and be back to the office in no time at all. Your drive home will be sparkling clean…that is, until the traffic.
