I've always wanted to try rinseless wash and finally made the plunge. I will never go back
Quick to use less messy and less wet conserves water great shine/finish
I'm still hesitant to use it on midwest winter grime. I think I will still power wash it before using this.

Did a great job cleaning our Boxster, used the two bucket method, saved the remaining wash for future use. Used the detailer spray when wiping down, left a clean car with a good shine, no residue.
Easy to use, works as advertised.

I use this as a detail spray concentrate, a wash formula, and as a clay bar lube, and as a pre-treat before washing. This stuff is incredible. I cannot imagine doing without this product! And a bottle goes a long way! Best product in the battle against pollen!
Helps prevent scratches from pollen and dust, leaves a nice, clean surface, and does a really good job of helping to gently remove bird poo.

great alternative to bringing out the hose
April 22, 2015
We are under constant water restrictions where I live. Knowing that I can wash a dirty car without running a hose is a relief. The solution works well. I would like to see more suds, but it did the job.

Work and Time Saver
January 7, 2015
"Optimum No Rinse" is ideal for your classic car and daily driver. You can use it as a spray and wipe detailer or in a bucket of water with a microfiber rag and towel when a dirtier car makes that approach more appropriate. Use "Optimum" when the weather prohibits an outdoor wash, or you want to limit the use of water on your classic car. It does a good job and saves the labor of always hauling out all the usual material to wash your car.
Fast, Convenient, Safe.
Cannot flush underbody by it's nature.

Amazing but not for the reasons you might think..
January 7, 2015
It's an OK product, for the overall results I would actually rate it at 3 stars out of 5 at the most. The main virtues this product has (and I think anyone who likes to keep their rides clean without taking up too much time without compromising the results) is that it allows one to effectively clean their cars efficiently and be able to maintain the paint (as in maintain with a quick detailer).
Very versatile Savings on water and environmental impact A time saver
Overall results are just average Just the uneasy feeling of not having rinse, especially on really dirty, dark colored cars

Just like so many others have said, ONR is fantastic. It is a versatile product and is a useful tool for any detailer. ONR is very nice to use in the colder months to be able to wash without using a spray hose, and it is a capable quick detailer and clay lube as well. The smell is pleasant, and the final shine is good too. Great product.

Have used this a few times now. Worked after a snow with salt on the road and cleaned up really nice with no visible markings on the clear coat. I have a black car, so swirls and scratches stick out like a sore thumb. Very happy with the product. Have yet to use as a clay bar lubricant.

A key to cleaning/shining on the go
May 27, 2014
Purchased product as a test for an upcoming road trip with my Vette where taking the time to do a full cleaning won't be possible. Have been throughly pleased using this product for that purpose. EXTRA POINTS for other uses such as clay lube! Recommend product fully to those still looking.
Multi-use; excellent results

The Best!
June 15, 2013
I have been using ONR for 2 years now and it gives a deep crystal like shine to your car that is very noticeable. I washed my Ash Gold Volvo with it two weeks ago (it has rained several times) and it still appears very glossy from a distance until you get up close enough to see the dirt spots from the rain. I have several other Optimum products and they are the best in my opinion.

This wash makes my car look so great. It's as if I took hours to wax the car. Our water is hard and I use it after a conventional wash too. It eliminates the spots that used to drive me crazy. Believe the promises.

I've used this product diluted for QD spray & no rinse car wash. Both work very well, and the value for the price is hard to beat on this product I read a review to just get the 32 oz to start because the product is that good. I'd like to repeat that. If you are buying the first bottle, jump to the 32 oz bottle. I'm definitely buying again when I use up my first bottle. You will like it !!!!

Still a bit scared

A safe way to wash without a hose
May 24, 2012
Having recently received my ONR, I couldn't wait to try it out. Using a two bucket method, with 3 MF towels, I added 2oz. to 4 gallons hot water for my wash and 3 gallons for my rinse. Using my new grit-guards in both, I went about washing my "dirty" Honda Accord. It wasn't filthy, no caked on dirt or mud. Mostly dust, pollen, and a fine layer of dirt. I chose to fill a 32oz spray bottle, adding 2oz of ONR. I started top down, liberally spraying along the way. I found that I had more than enough time to dry (however, it was after the sun went down). I used 3 MF's so I could rotate as I went. It leaves a clean, slightly lubed feeling to the paint. And this is a car that is used for work, and needs it's spring wax. Overall, no complaints. Works as advertised. Just remember to keep the paint wet and don't "scrub" the paint. Lightly wipe the paint using the plush side of the MF. Spray liberally along the way. I bet you'll like your results.

ONR as a quick detailer
April 27, 2012
As a quick detailer (8 oz/gal), ONR is much better than other brands. More lubricity, better shine, and has a very pleasing aroma. This is also an excellent value, as other quick detailers cost $8 for a 16 oz bottle. You'll get 32 bottles out of the 32 oz which is around $0.50 per bottle. And that doesn't even cover it's other uses. Great product!

I haven't hand washed a car since I detailed my Honda Accord years ago and it was hit and totalled two days later. After hearing about the benefits and finally using ONR, I think I'll be washing my car every week. I've already had two people ask me to wash their car as well. Thanks for such a great product.

Very Good
February 23, 2012
I purchased the Optimum No Rinse after hearing positive reviews online. I have to say I'm very impressed, I never imagined a no-rinse car was could work so well. Is it the best carwash of any type I've ever used? No. But it's certainly the best no-rinse product I've tried. It makes washing very easy and quick especially if you live in an apartment, condo, downtown or other place where a hose and bucket aren't totally practical.

Rinseless Washing Is The Future
November 12, 2011
I delayed buying ONR for a long time as I was not convinced it was possible to wipe a panel without creating swirls. I have two regrets after buying ONR and they are, 1- I should not have waited so long before buying a bottle. 2 - I should have ordered a lager bottle as I have no intention of going back to a traditional shampoo

A must
November 10, 2011
With street parking and no hose, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to wash my car at all, let alone during the winter months. ONR solved that problem for me, and then ones I didn't even know I had! Aside from the rinseless wash, ONR advertises that it can be used as a quick detailer or clay lubricant, the latter of which I've used and will use exclusively from now on. It even smells good! It's one of the first products I picked up from Autogeek and now, I don't think I'll ever go without it.

The only ONR to have. Seems everyone has used this wash, and for good reason. The perfect way to wash your car in the garage during winter. I also add 1/2oz to my regular washes to add that extra bit of slickness. Great value, as you can use for a wash, quick detailer, and clay lube.

Optimum No Rinse is a versatile detailing solution that every car enthusiast should have on their shelf. I have used it as a rinse-less wash, which left my paint (and wheels!) sparkling clean and at no time did I feel a chance to marr the paint. I have also used it as a clay lube. I could use as much lubricant to clay, and if i were to run out, I could just run to the shelf, mix up a new brew of lubricant. It is extremely cost effective and uses less water for a wash.

I used Optimum No Rinse as a wash on my moderately dusty car using the two-bucket method with a microfiber towel. I cleaned panel per panel, drying each one right after cleaning. It did a very good job of cleaning. Does not leave water spots or streaks if you dry immediately and throughly. My car had never been that shiny since i bought it. Note that it does not produce suds and does not make the water slippery. Very light berry scent. I will definitely try it at the other dilutions. Next time i'll buy a gallon!

You have to try it to believe
May 17, 2011
I was very skeptical about this product, and admit it took a bit of trial and error to realize all of the benefits of Optimum No Rinse. I live in the Midwest, so winter time usually ment months of not being able to wash my car. ONR changed all of that. Now with a small propane heater I can fully wash my car using only a few gallons of water anytime of year. Im my experience I have found a few things that prevent any scratches or marring while using ONR. First, this is not a miracle product, if you have been mudding or have thick built up sand & salt on the car you should use a pressure washer to quickly get off the really heavy crud. Removing normal dirt and grim such as driving through rain is a perfect application for this product. First I mix up two buckets of hot water, one to rinse my mitt, one containing the ONR mix. Then I pre-soak the car by spraying some of the ONR Mix on the surface, then use the mitt to clean one pannel before rinsing the mitt in the fresh water bucket and drying the pannel. I have noticed that the wash media used will noticeably stain a dark color after a season of use, but is still usable, just discolored. I use the cobra bone with ONR, though Optimum has a dedicated purpose mitt that I will be switching to soon.

Can do it all
May 17, 2011
When I was looking for a clay lube I considered getting a dedicated product. However it was just so hard getting away from this product with its versatile ability! Why buy just a Clay Lube when you can buy a product that can also WASH, DETAIL, and be added to your wash bucket to make your shampoo even slicker? One the best product on the market today for a casual detailer who's looking to save a few.

I live in a high rise condo in downtown San Diego, and as such don't have access to water in the garage. This product allows me to get out from under the thumb of the wash it yourself places and over priced car washes. My neighbors are always astounded when they see me down there washing the car without rinsing and the job it does. Thanks for the great product!

A must-have if you're renting!
July 2, 2010
I'm renting a townhouse in an apartment complex, so I don't have access to a hose. I can say without a doubt that ONR is an excellent product to wash your car with if you're renting. I'm so glad that this product was invented. Otherwise, I don't think there would be any way to wash my car correctly. If you're renting, ONR is something that you must have if you want to keep your car's exterior clean and in top condition. It is quick, easy, and doesn't make a mess. It'll leave your car shiny and spotless as well. My drying towels are yellow. When I dry my car after using ONR, the yellow towels are completely free of dirt. It's amazing. This makes me confident that I won't damage the clearcoat in the drying process, since there's clearly no dirt left on the surface of the car. I'm also glad that ONR is environmentally friendly. The rental complex where I live is surrounded by large retaining ponds, which attract a lot of wildlife. ONR is a great way for me to clean my car without having to worry about causing any animals to be harmed or become sick. By the way, ONR also has a pleasant raspberry scent. After washing your car, both your hands and your car will smell like raspberries. Yum!

Optimum No Rinse And My First Use
October 10, 2009
I have used Meguiars Detailers edition wash for years and it works great, but after reading all the reviews and posts in forums on this product I had to see if I was missing anything. I tried it today on my 03 50th Anniversary Corvette after a WEEKS worth of Florida debrit, (AKA rain, sand and puddles from my daily commute to work) this stuff is truly AMAZING. I presoaked any typical areas on my lower fenders , wheels and wheel wells and the dried sand and dirt needed virtually no pressure to come off after a WEEK of being on the car.. Waterspots, zero, streaking zero, no hose required and best of all it works as a detail spray and clay lubricant. Do yourself a favor and buy the gallon size then do the math on how much you just saved by getting 3 EXCELLENT products in 1..

I use this product on all of my cars and absolutely love it. I wish I had had this product earlier so that I would not have swirled my last car, which was black. The traditional soaps constantly left water spots and swirls. Now, I use this on my 07 Mustang and it is unreal what a difference it makes. Even brake dust comes off with a simple wipe and dry. I highly recommend it. I've use the same 32 oz. bottle for two summers and still have 1/2 left, even though I wash at least two cars a week. It's a solid investment.

Big Pimpin' Product, For Sure!
April 30, 2009
This products outperforms 'DP Rinseless Wash & Gloss' 5 to 1. The only time I'll probably use a hose again is to do the engine compartment and undercarriage of my car. I gave samples from my 32 oz. and now I have to by the 128 oz. because I don't have enough for myself and co-workers to make it through the week. We all think this stuff is simply amazing. I can wash and dry both my cars in and around 45 minutes. I should have been using this sruff a long time ago.

(by mistake i mixed 6 and 1/2 oz to 1 gal of water) as a clay lube i just used the same mixture as the quick lube. claying with this product i seem to spray alot of lube the mixture jets off the surface too fast or i'm just too slow. over all i love this product can't wait till winter when i get to use it as a rinseless wash in my garage. get a bottle you'll be amazed.

I was skeptical of this at first, despite word of mouth props, but this stuff is just outstanding. No waterspots, I can wash the cars anywhere in the yard, I don't have to frantically hurry up and wash and rewash, then scurry around drying, saves water! I can stop midwash to take a phone call or get something out of the garage. After my first quickie try out, it left my car looking fantastic - slick and shiny, and it seems to be repelling dust.
