Item Description:

The most technologically advanced car wash system!

Ability to wash in your garage during cold winter months!

The latest Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine formula for 2012 offers greater slickness, ease of use, and protection!

Optimum Dilution Ratio
Optimum No Rinse Dilution Ratios


No Rinse™ Wash & Shine is the most technologically advanced car wash system that only requires 1-2 gallons of water to wash the entire car. No Rinse™ Wash & Shine does not require rinsing since there are no soapy surfactants to wash off into the storm drains.

This unique product contains substantive polymers which bond to the paint and protect it during the wash. Therefore, No Rinse™ Wash & Shine offers greater protection and lubricity than conventional car washes leaving a sleek & glossy finish behind afterwards. The waste water in the bucket can be used to water the lawn or disposed of into a sink, where it will be treated!

Additional benefits are faster washes, ability to wash anywhere at anytime including washing inside the garage during the cold months, no messy water runoffs, and greater looking car finishes. These are some of the reasons No Rinse™ Wash & Shine is being used by many professional detailers across the country (see testimonials).

No Rinse™ Wash & Shine can also be used to wash motorhomes, motorcycles, boats, and planes.

Directions:

Add 1 oz. of Optimum No Rinse™ Wash & Shine to 2 gallons of water in a bucket. Soak a plush microfiber towel into the wash solution and wash one section at a time till it is completely clean. Dry the section using a clean plush microfiber towel.

Available in 8, 32, and 128 ounce bottles.

First Opinion
I have heard about ONR for a long time now. From what i have read and seen it is revered as possibly the best rinseless wash. I was not dissapointed with this product. It is incredibly easy to use and it takes such a small amount of product to complete the job. My car looked great after, just as good as a normal wash in my opinion.
Pros:
Ease of use A little product goes a long way Car looks great after, for lightly dirty car just as good as a normal wash Cheap Readily available Nice smell

Flexible Product
I used this on a car that stays outside (no garage) needs wax but otherwise very well kept. It's dark blue. The no rinse wash worked well but not as good as a traditional car wash. So I wound up using it when I want to quickly clean up the car but don't have time for a full on wash. It may perform better after I wax the vehicle. As a quick detailer it's outstanding. So inexpensive, great on windows too. This will be my quick detailer solution going forward. I used the same solution to remove dried coffee in the cup holders. Again, it worked great. Spritzed it on the dried mung, let it sit a minute, agitated with a soft brush and wiped it up. Left the cup holders looking wonderful. So I also tried it on the rest of the hard plastics in the interior (including the dash) and again it performed great. Haven't tried it as clay bar lube yet.
Pros:
Flexible product useful as both an interior and exterior quick detailer. Cost effective Gives a good impression of a traditional car was on an unwaxed vehicle When it gets cold outside this will be a great way to keep the car looking good
Cons:
On an unwaxed vehicle, the car wash isn't as good as a traditional wash.

Fell short of expectations
I was probably expecting too much based on all the online raving. Does it work? Yes. Is it the best thing since sliced bread? No. I was expect a much slicker surface that I was given. I poured a very generous amount of product in my water bucket and proceeded to wash my car as many videos and forum guides instructed. It worked, but didn't seem to have the glide that I would have preferred. It wasn't pulling at my towel by any means, but it certainly wasn't gliding over the surface either. I used it on a tractor with much worse paint with more favorable results. Maybe the dilution ratio needs to be increased to provide better performance.

My single most favorite detailing product!
This should be in everyone's detailing arsenal. At a low price point, you get enough dilutable product to makes gallons of what you need. I use Optimum No-Rinse as a waterless wash, as a glass cleaner, as a detailing spray, and as a spot-free drying aid. I even add an ounce to my wash bucket with any soap to help soften the water. This is probably the most versatile detailing product I use.
Pros:
Low price, makes gallons of product, many uses, smells great

Good additive for less spotting
I add a few caps full to my wash bucket and foam gun to help with water spotting with nice results. I've also tried it out a detailer and rinse-less wash with some good results however it could be better. Although for the price I can't complain too much
Pros:
Easy dilution ratios Helps with water spots Smell Price
Cons:
Not a sudsy product Not exactly perfect for its intended use

Excellent product
I almost never wash my vehicle with soap any more. ONR is incredibly affordable, and I like the finish it leaves on the paint.
Pros:
Gloss and shine. Ease of use.

Awesome stuff!!
ONR is great stuff since it can be used as a detail spray, quick rinse, and clay lubricator. Since I'm picky about swirl marks, scratches, etc. I use the Gary Dean method with ONR.
Pros:
Flexibility with product
Cons:
None

I agree with everyone else, it's great!
I wasn't a believer but I tried it and can confirm this stuff is great! It's my go to on cold winter days or if a light cleaning is needed. I haven't seen any swirl marks after using it for the last year but you got to use with caution and follow the direction like anything else. For heavy soiled cars still would use a traditional two bucket wash with shampoo if I could.... not that you could give it a go with ONR.
Pros:
Cost per gallon, slickness of solution, lots of videos from OPT and others on its use, low water consumption, can use in cold weather with hot water :)

Works well
This product is intended for a no rinse wash. But I've been using it as an aid to soften the water and avoid spots while I'm drying the car. A cap full is enough for a wash bucked. I will also use it as clay lube. Come winter, I'll give it a try as no rinse wash. I already got the big red sponge to go with it.

ONR works
Only complaint or downfall... it won't work it's way into cracks and crevices. Just means slightly more work then washing with pressurized water. Other then that, it leaves behind a very nice shine. I like to do the two bucket system with this. Your rinse water just becomes your wash water later on.

This is the only way to wash cars in drought conditions
This is an amazing product. It works as well as the "rinse, lather, repeat" methods but using a fraction of the water. The detergent is very effective at removing all oil and dirt and it leaves the car shiny like it was just waxed. Really dirty vehicles may need several buckets to get the job done, but this is still the best use of potable water for car washing that I can imagine. Washing a car during a drought is purely an elective choice. This product makes it reasonable - I use my shower warm-up water so there's absolutely no waste. Best of all, the dirty water goes down the toilet and into the sewer system for proper treatment, not down the storm drain as it would if we washed using the hose. Much better for the environment. Do the water responsible thing and use this product.
Pros:
Simple and effective. It works.
Cons:
You'll need to learn how to use this product to get best results. Lot's of clean microfiber clothes are needed, as is a step-by-step approach to washing your car. You'll have to learn to wash it in several "quadrants" instead of all at once - wash and then dry each section before moving on. Don't worry, it doesn't take any longer in total, but you will have to learn how to do it to get good results.

So Good I Bought 2 more
I ran out of my first 32 oz bottle. I bought another somewhere along the line. And then recently, I noticed they were on sale here on Autopia and bought TWO more! It's that good. KISS. Keep It Simple Simon. This stuff works. No need for anything fancy It cleans It's a budget friendly clay lube. Quick detailer. Mostly, though, it's my go-to rinseless.
Pros:
One of the best values Cleans nicely as a rinseless VERY affordable clay lube
Cons:
Can't think of any.

Pleasant Suprise
I was a little reluctant to try this product at first, I'm pretty anal about my car, but this stuff worked great! No mess in the garage, great finish when done. Definitely will buy again. Product paid for itself in the first wash!
Pros:
No mess, uses just a little water
Cons:
Probably wouldn't work on an overly dirty vehicle. You'd want to rinse it off first.

Great rinseless
Safe car wash method to use in your garage anytime. Hot days (think waterspotting), cold days, nighttime etc. Since this has no wax, I can wash, decontaminate, wash again, compound, polish, and LSP without moving the car. Great time saver.
Pros:
Safe rinseless when used with correct method.
Cons:
Does not release gunk from wash media. (I use multiple 350gsm+ microfiber towels that make this a non issue)

Game changer
This product exceeded all my expectations. I have a new car (black) and wanted to keep the factory wax job as long as possible plus conserve water. One ounce of wash in two gallons of water....you have to see it to believe it but this product only bubbles a little and the suds(?) or bubbles disappear by the time you get the bucket from the sink to the driveway. Use a microfiber mitt and apply liquid to car....watch all bug splats and bird doo go bye-bye almost instantly. Regular dirt just slides off and then you can begin to towel the liquid off. I also used a silicone squeegy to get the largest amount of liquid off before toweling...especially the windows. The wash liquid will not leave any circles, spots or water haze and my car looked showroom perfect when dry. I am so sold on this product that I have recommended it to about 6 people so far. It's a good value too. $14.99 for 32 oz and only an ounce is needed per wash = 32 car washes from one bottle. Great value.
Pros:
Perfection in a bottle
Cons:
none

Versatile product
I have been using this product for 5 years now. I'm getting back into the detail world and this product hasn't changed or failed me. This can be used as a quick detailer, lube for claying your car or a rinse less wash. If your state or county is in a drought this product is ideal for keeping your car looking perfect.

Works as advertised
I've used Optimum No Rinse mixed in a bucket with a brush and in a spray bottle using microfiber cloths. Both worked to my satisfaction. Did not use on vehicle that was excessively dirty however. Nice product for cleaning up your vehicle or travel trailer when you don't have water available.
Pros:
works without water, leaves finished surface shiny

Excellent Product
I live in the Phoenix area where it is HOT and dusty. I love the option of washing the car in the garage. Recently got stuck in a monsoon and dust storm. My black BMW was covered in dust and then rained on. Car was filthy. Mixed up some OPTIMUM NO RINSE and 20 minutes later car was clean with a brilliant shine!
Pros:
Easy to use, does not scratch the finish, small amount needed to wash multiple vehicles.
Cons:
none

So far, so good
In water conserved Los Angeles, this Optimum product has worked well the first few times I've used it. I don't allow my cars to get too dirty, so using this once a week has worked 'as advertised'.
Pros:
Saves a lot of water. Easy to use.

A great product that all detailers should have!
I've used this diluted in a 5 gallon bucket to wash my car and I've used it as a clay lube. I keep a bottle of it in my trunk as well to remove anything on the paint that could cause etching. This is one of my favorite products by far.
Pros:
Easy to use, variety of uses

Cheap at twice the price!
Would not have believed how it worked if I had not done it myself. Beautiful car wash, in my garage, without a hose. No pre-wash, I did not even knock off the mud. I have no idea how it works...it just does! This product was referred to me by a guy who makes a living detailing exotic cars. Its all he uses.
Pros:
It is what you said, and more.

Great Product
I have been using ONR for the past few months as my main rinseless wash. The smell is great, cleans well, the towel glides very easily over the paint and the high dilution ration makes a little ONR go a very long way. Highly recommend.
Pros:
Price Lubricity Cleaning Power Smell

Great for Clay Lube
Cheap alternative to be used for Clay Lube. I use this to clean my cars with a pressurized spray bottle. California duster and this would make a great combination. Could use a little more slickness on the finished product though.
Pros:
Cheap Good shine Smell
Cons:
Not too slick
