Default My Optimum No Rinse review.

After reading alot of positive reviews about the ONR I decided to order a bottle from Detailers Domain. Today I was able to wash my Mustang using the ONR and to say the least I was thoroughly impressed with how it performed. The Mustang was not terribly dirty as it is not driven in the rain and kept in the garage but was at the point where it was too dirty to just simply wipe down with a quick detailer. The entire wash took only an hour ( thats very quick for me), this was only painted surfaces and glass no wheels. I used a 2 bucket system both treated with the ONR, all towels used were microfiber. After the wash was completed the surface of the car was thoroughly inspected for streaks, swirls etc. and NONE were found. I dont know if I would be brave enough to use ONR on an absolutely filthy car but for a car that is only driven in nice weather and only picking up light road grime and dust this is the perfect alternative to a full out wash.

If the car has more dirt on it just do a pre-soak with ONR (fertilizer sprayers work great). It can handle quite a bit of grime.

I agree...ONR is good stuff, especially with the freezing northeast temps when normal washing is just impossible.

Although I personally don't use ONR exclusively (taking place of my normal wash routine), I still managed to find a place for it in my regimen. It's a good product.

+1

it also makes a great clay lube and its SUPER cheap!

I got the bogo from autogeek and got two small bottles.

that'll turn into like 20 gallons of clay lube

edit: I havent driven my car in a few days and it looked so dirty just sitting in the garage. its raining out and i didnt feel like getting wet.

ONR to the rescue! car looks sooo clean now I didnt clean the wheels though theyre spray painted and need to be resprayed i so dont care bout them

I almost never do a regular wash these days. ONR is awesome!!
I also use it as a clay lube and quick detailer - Great results!
The gallon size will last me 2-3 years to service 2 cars.
