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.


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.

ONR = best
August 25, 2021
I have used ONR since it was introduced. It absolutely is the best wash I've used. The easiest wash. And the most cost effective wash. I follow the two bucket method with grit guards. Never had an issue. I also use this as a clay lubricant.

Just buy it. You will never go back to regular washing.

Note: This review is for the older formula. Excited to try the new and improved formula!
  • Excellent wash results
  • Rapidly decreased wash time
  • Ease of use
  • Clay lubricant
  • Price
  • Still need to rinse a medium to heavily soiled vehicle before using IMHO.

Best washing aid

Bought to assist in weekly washes. The product performs fantastic. My wash bucket water never looked so clean while washing the dirt just sinks to the bottom. Amazing...

Great on the road
August 1, 2020
I bought ONR primarily for a trip I was taking. Using it on the road was great for an easy wash in a remote area on a coated truck. Paired with The Big Red Sponge, this cleaning system has no problem removing the road grime, pollen, finger prints and bugs from the trip. I was surprised it worked pretty well on glass too, little effort drying, and would leave a pretty streak free finish.
  • Uses 2 gal water to wash a crew cab pickup.
  • Uses very little product.
  • Easy to pack along on a trip.
  • Leaves behind a nice shiny finish.
  • If you're extremely picky about your glass, follow with a dedicated glass cleaner.

Perfect product for a beginner
June 20, 2020
I got this product as It was recommended by many people online. I used it as a wash, clay lube, and quick detail. It smells great, and did everything I hoped it would with no issues. I barely used any product, so this is going to last me a long time. I'm very excited

Priced right, highly versatile

There is plenty to be said that has already been said. I use it for clay lube and winter washes and it lasts a long time, especially at the price point it is at. Highly versatile.

Great Product
March 16, 2020
I used this for the first time on my dirty, slightly salt stained car. The temperature outside was right around 40 degrees. It is very easy to apply and after removing the product and then lightly buffing with another microfiber towel my car looked like it had just been waxed. I'm amazed at how well this product works. I will always have it on hand to use and am sure I will be using it a lot. Very convenient way to clean a car and get a great result.

Great all-around versatile product
January 16, 2020
I've been using ONR for several months now on a weekly basis to wash my truck and I am thoroughly impressed with it. It makes easy work of washing. It can be used for many different things depending on how you dilute it. I've also used it for glass, interior, clay lube, and a quick detailer.
  • Cuts washing time down
  • Can be diluted differently for different purposes
  • Smells great
By Justin
Favorite product by far
May 1, 2019
I use ONR for just about everything. Works great for clay lube, detail spray, additive for a steamer, and the all important winter washes. I had a truck that had several big dry mud chunks over the sides. I sprayed it down with ONR and majority of the mud came off before I could rinse it.
  • Easy to use
  • No scratching
  • Use for anything
  • Reduces cleaning time
  • You?ll go through a lot as you use it for everything

Game changer!
March 18, 2019
This product is a game changer! What can be said that hasn’t been said? It’s so good it’s hard to believe, I honestly have washed cars that you’d think would be too dirty for a rinseless wash and yet ONR knocked it outta the park! Pair with Opti-seal or the Instant Detailer for an extra pop of shine and protection!
  • Allows you to wash your car in freezing temps!
  • None!

First Opinion
December 4, 2018
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.
  • 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
September 5, 2018
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.
  • 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
  • On an unwaxed vehicle, the car wash isn't as good as a traditional wash.

Fell short of expectations
August 9, 2018
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!
July 18, 2018
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.
  • Low price, makes gallons of product, many uses, smells great

Good additive for less spotting
May 11, 2018
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
  • Easy dilution ratios
  • Helps with water spots
  • Smell
  • Price
  • Not a sudsy product
  • Not exactly perfect for its intended use

Excellent product
December 26, 2017
I almost never wash my vehicle with soap any more. ONR is incredibly affordable, and I like the finish it leaves on the paint.
  • Gloss and shine.
  • Ease of use.
Awesome stuff!!
July 29, 2017
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.
  • Flexibility with product
  • None
Scottsville, NY
I agree with everyone else, it's great!
June 23, 2017
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.
  • 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 :)
By BSoares
Works well
May 15, 2017
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
March 30, 2017
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
October 19, 2016
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.
  • Simple and effective. It works.
  • 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
October 18, 2016
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.
  • One of the best values
  • Cleans nicely as a rinseless
  • VERY affordable clay lube
  • Can't think of any.

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!
  • No mess, uses just a little water
  • Probably wouldn't work on an overly dirty vehicle. You'd want to rinse it off first.
