How to Waterless Wash & Wax Helicopters
Fold some towels in half twice to form a square, wet them, and then wring them out so they are only damp. Also fold some dry towels in the same manner and have them available. (See Note: Towels) waterless helicopter wash and wax
Start at the highest point you plan to clean. Clean upwind of the dirty areas so the spray mist will only land on areas that have not been cleaned.
Spray an area you can comfortably clean before the Wash Wax ALL dries.
Take the damp towel and wipe the area you just sprayed with Wash Wax ALL. (If the helicopter is not very dirty, you can skip this step.)
Dry the area with a dry towel before the Wash Wax ALL dries.
Continue using steps 3 through 5 for the rest of the Helicopter, unfolding and re-folding the towels to expose new clean sides.
Work your way down to the lower portions of the Helicopter. We recommend cleaning the windows last. 
The process is the same throughout the entire Helicopter; spray on and wipe off. Replace the towels as needed when they become dirty. For hard to reach areas, we recommend using the Wash Wax Mop.
For areas of the Helicopter that have dried on bugs, we recommend you pre-spray the area with Wash Wax ALL (Blue) and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. After it has soaked in, re-spray the area and use the Aero Scrubber to break up the bugs. Then, use a towel to dry and clean the area before the Wash Wax ALL dries.
  • The damp towel may not be necessary to clean the Helicopter if the surface is cool and not very dirty.
  • If spot cleaning, one towel is usually sufficient. Use one side to clean and one side to dry. You may want to dampen the cleaning side of the towel with a few sprays of Wash Wax ALL when first using the one towel method.
  • Use only good quality soft absorbent microfiber or cotton towels.
  • Your towels should be washed regularly, inspected for foreign material, and stored in a sealed container or bag, free of any dirt. (See: How to clean & care for your Towels & Pads)
Getting the most out of your towels
The towel you use to apply the Wash Wax ALL is going to get dirty first. When you are ready to replace that towel, replace it with the drying towel. It will already be slightly damp by that time so there will be no need to dampen it with water or prime it with Wash Wax ALL. Also use this procedure when using the Wash Wax Mop.
  • The highest points of the Helicopter may require a ladder, lift, stairs, or scaffolding when using the hand application method. Consider using the Wash Wax Mop for these hard to reach areas instead. 
  • If the air and or surface temperatures are high, you may have to clean smaller areas at a time. If the temperature is cool and humid, you can clean larger areas at a time. It is important to dry the Wash Wax ALL before it dries on its own to avoid streaking.

"I have to tell you how much I love your product. I recently purchased a 31 foot motor home. I was horrified to discover how long it took to clean the outside on my own. After a few months of blood, sweat and tears, I did a bit of exploring on the internet and came across your product. I bit the bullet and purchased your internet special.WOW, wow, wow!! In just over an hour my RV was cleaner than it’s ever been and I didn’t use nearly as much product as I thought I was going to need. It is truly amazing Buying your Internet special was the best cleaning investment I could have ever made for my Motor home. My only regret was that I waited as long as I did to be a lifelong Wash Wax ALL user!"
