"Wash" your car during a water shortage by wiping it down with a soft cloth (microfiber works well), while there is dew on it in the morning. A lot of grime comes off with the moisture.

CAUTION: When you rub a cloth across your car and there is grit on the car, it can cause light scratches on the surface. Better to rinse the grit off with running water.
Most full service car washes use "reclaim" water or in other words they recycle their water. It actually is much better to take your car to a car wash than to wash on your driveway and waste lots of water and to rinse all of the chemicals into the storm drains.
