Eco Touch car-care products let you clean your machine, keep the Earth green
As someone who really cares about his vehicles, I'm always looking for the latest in car care products. Recently, a company called Eco Touch sent me samples of three of their car care products. With a name like Eco Touch, if you're guessing they're environmentally minded, you'd be correct. In fact, on the company's website, they state they manufacture high-performance car-care products with minimal impact on the environment through the product's life cycle. Hey, I'm all for products that minimize impact on the planet. So can you have an environmentally friendlier product that actually works well? There's only one way to find out.
First I tried the Tire Shine on my Suzuki Sidekick's 235/75/15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires. I'm not a fan of glossy, wet-looking tire products. Thankfully, Eco Touch's Tire Shine (applied with one of their applicators) offered up a low-gloss look—just what I like. The product did a nice job cleaning up the tires, taking away the tire's brown, dry look and giving the tires a freshly cleaned appearance. By the way, the tires maintained their clean look for days after the application.
Next, I hit up the wheels with Eco Touch's Metal Polish, which did a great job making my chrome wheels gleam. Plus, this product can be used on household items, too—great considering we've got two stainless-steel garbage cans that often need cleaning.
Lastly, I gave the All-Purpose Cleaner and Degreaser a shot on some tar splats located on my white Yaris' fenders. I'm happy to report Eco Touch's product make short work of the tar. Yes, it takes a bit of elbow grease to get the tar off, but the product did the job well. It worked well on bug guts, miscellaneous road grime, and other greasy bits, too.
Yes, this post might sound a bit like an infomercial, but I wouldn't write about a product if I didn't think it was worth writing about. And to come across a product that works well and isn't made from harsh chemicals is a good thing. I think if you check out these products, you'll likely come to the same conclusion.
