The company has created an app for car drivers to order environmentally friendly waterless carwashing services, stated the article.

After the user arranges an appointment and location in advance, reported the article, Bonshine employees will arrive to clean the exterior and interior of the user’s vehicle.

The app, available for free download, also provides online updates on the car’s status as well as credit card payment options, which includes a tip for the carwasher, continued the article.

The app user can then rate the carwash based on the level of service and satisfaction, added the article.

In the initial stage, informed the article, the waterless carwashing service will be offered in Herzliya Pituach, with plans to expand throughout Israel in the coming months.


The service will then be provided upon request when Bonshine’s nationwide expansion is completed, added the article.

The company uses a cleaning product made from plants and also five types of wax made by the Italian company Mafra, stated the article.

Bonshine will polish and cover the vehicle with a wax layer to help protect the vehicle’s paint, reported the article.

An exterior-only carwashing service costs approximately $7.71 (NIS 29), continued the article, and an interior and exterior cleaning service costs $13.29 (NIS 50).

Bonshine currently employs 40 workers in its offices in Petah Tikva, noted the article, and plans to expand into the U.S. this year and later into Australia.


“The company has reached thousands of cleanings a month,” said Glatman in the article. “We have dozens of business customers and thousands of private customers.”
