Waterless wash for cloth convertible top?

I've become a big fan of waterless car washes and especially the Croftgate brand. But most waterless car washes also contain a wax. The wife just bought a Mini Cooper convertible, and I'm reluctant to use the Croftgate product on the cloth convertible top because of the wax. Anyone have a suggestion on what waterless car wash to use on a ragtop?

I'm a little confused and curious but why use a waterless product in the first place? My convertibles tops all except water with no issues, one is about 17 years old and still looks fine after a bazillion washes...... Tedd

HEY
So like a BENZ you have the soft fuzzy top. NOT old school vinyl???
IF so I can ask the jaguar guy.. He just put a creamy soft to on his 1969. Looks Awesome!

Happy Thanks Giving

The wife has a BMW convertible with a soft cloth top and the dealership said to wash it with regular car wash stuff. The only special instructions were to use a sealer on it every year.
