I used stuff like it. Forget the exact name something like 'showroom shine' but similar idea and similar bottle.

As far as waterless - you do really need to hose down the car at least before hand.

And you need to work the wax but give it a good rub. But it does shine up real nice, got the Honda good and purple.

Wouldn't use it too much on glass, use windowlene or something.

I used newspaper and some pink chemical stuff to clean the windows of the house we rented when we were leaving (and looking our deposit back), but found the newspaper streaked a lot with the ink.

Prefer a good chamois.
