Only true fanatics will understand the scenario above, or the need for such a device. But those who've parked their freshly-cleaned and priceless (whether actually or just emotionally) four-wheeled spouse in their garage just to come out the next morning and find it covered in a fine haze of particles are already searching for the thing on Amazon.
Whether you fall into the former camp or the more normal group of folks that simply appreciate a clean car, the Touchless Car Cover, made by a company of the same name, offers a range of appealing features. For one thing, its makers claim you can drive into and out of it, leaving it set up like a tent. Much more convenient than wrestling with a tarp or traditional car cover twice a day.
It's also a sound investment for those without garages, because the Touchless Car Cover is UV and water resistant, offering some shelter from the color-leaching elements for the interior as well as the exterior.
But like all things automotive, there's a tradeoff. If you want effective and convenient, be prepared to pay - the Touchless Car Cover costs $299. That's a whole lot of cleaning supplies, or a nearly infinite supply of standard car covers.
