Just like regular ONR but with Optimum Spray wax!
If you like original ONR, I recommend trying this as it works just as well but with some added Optimum spray wax. Just as versatile as the original, I tend to use this a bit less frequently but always nice to have options. Scent is slightly stronger than regular ONR and maybe a watermelon scent.
ProsJust like the original but with added wax
ConsMaybe a con, stronger smelling

No Running water
If you live in a location where it snow and can use running water you need this, easy to use, easy to mix and you will have the best looking car on the road and the envy of motorists around you
ProsEasy to use, great results

Simply the best
This stuff is awesome. The best rinse less wash. With the wax, I think it is more lubricated than original ONR. I also use for interiors... It is perfect for maintenance interior cleaning and leaves a nice "finished" look.
ProsVersatile. Cost effective. Very effective cleaner

I was one that insisted that the only way to clean a vehicle was with soap, water, hose, etc. I now wipe my vehicle down with this product per the directions. The only time I will do it the previous way is if the vehicle is DIRTY.
Prosease of use. little labor required. little time required.

Using for >3 years without any harm to paint, great wash and wax
Here's my review after 3 years of use on 2 cars, washing them 1-2 times a week. I've never noticed any cumulative harm to the waxed paint. I use this with a sprayer and a costco towel, which are cheap enough to through away. I use in in direct sunlight, and on hot days I take it to a parking garage and wash it in the cool of a covered concrete building. Here's my method: 1 I keep folded microfiber costco towels soaked in Optimum in a sealed container, always ready to go, with a filled sprayer, so I can throw it in the car and wash it anywhere. I make the solution a gallon at a time. 2 If it's really dirty with drive scum, I spray down a panel at a time and let it soak for about the time to dry the previous panel. - Never let it dry, or it will leave spots. 3 Wipe it down a modified Gary Dean method of 1-4 wipes depending on how dirty each wipe makes the towel. Then refold. I easily 2x4 ft. top panel areas with one side of the the folded towel. Fewer on the lower and real panels. 4 Dry each section with a plush towel right after wiping with a circular motion, otherwise it will dry with streaks. 5 When I'm finished with the paint, I do the painted parts of inside the doors and trunk. 6 Then use the dirty towel to wash the wheels, brake calipers and inside of rims if they can be reached. I also use the dirty towel to wipe down the engine compartment. 7 Toss the costco towel, wash the plush one. I found this keeps the wife happy. 8 To make it really shine I'll spray it with a detailer's spray wax -- my favorite is Meguiars Meguiars D156 Synthetic X-press Spray Wax - I do use a sealant to wax the car every 6 months or so, when it loses that deep shine typical from washing cars. I used a quartz sealant last time and it lasted more than a year ... until I sold the car.
ProsSaves water Does not visibly harm the paint after multiple washing Can be done anywhere You can wash you 30mins or do a quick wash in 15. What you spend in costco towels you save in going to a spray car wash Saves the expense and pain waiting in line at a regular car wash Eliminates the 2-3 bucket prep, Now I use the bucket to transport everything to where I want to wash my car. You can get a yoga-esqe workout if you think about the moves. Limiting it to a gallon means you can use distilled water for the mix, so no water spots possible. I use the filtered water from my under sink faucet.
ConsNone really. After decades of washing cars, the California drought got me looking for a better way and I found this chemical and developed the method playing with it. Other than you have to do it yourself. There's no popcorn like at the real car wash.

I didn't believe at first
At first I thought no way this would work as well as a regular wash but was quickly convinced. This product leaves an amazing shine behind as well as protection.
ProsExtremely Slick Shine Protection Cost Versatility

Great car wash, but it isn't wax
Living in an apartment, I thought it would be great to wash & wax all in 1 step. My car did need waxing, water didn't bead up on the roof and part of the hood. I washed my car 2x one week apart with this product and when it rained - no difference in how the water didn't bead up. In my experience, this is the Optimum car wash with a different pigment in it.
ProsLeaves your car exceptionally shiny. Works well with the 2 bucket wash style
ConsNo wax in it - you will still have to wax your car.

I use this product a little different. I wash the car with regular highly recommended soap products. After rinsing the car, I use a cheap 2 gallon plant sprayer and spray this product on the car. I then use a microfiber 16 by 16 towel and quickly wipe the car down with ONR spray and wax from I mix in a bucket solution. This does not take long. I then dry the car with a microfiber tower. The ONR lubricates the car and enables a gentle drying phase. It also gets rid of all water spots. Works awesome and facilitates a wax between details.
ProsLubricates the drying process to prevent paint swirls. Prevents water spots.

I, like many, had my doubts about this as a lifelong gear head that only lightly breathes on my paint finishes. However, I followed the instructions and used a two bucket method and I am blown away. Not only does it work, is it gentle on the paint and smell great but this is by far the most efficient way to wash a car. Almost feel like a fool doing it the old fashioned way for my lifetime. Now, I'm not sure I would got his route for a muddy vehicle or something that is heavily soiled, but for those of us that garage and/or cover their vehicles and make use of a car duster, this is THE product. I am 100% sold on this stuff and recommend it to anyone. Here in California, the low water use is also a huge plus as it is illegal to wash your car here right now. No more dirty looks from the neighbors when I wash 5 vehicles at once! Buy it!
ProsEase of use, low water consumption, speed, cost, everything! Literally nothing but a positive experience....
ConsNot a thing negative with this stuff.

Very Nice Product
ONR green wash+wax works very well. As compared to Chemical Guys Eco Wash I prefer ONR. You use less product than Eco Smart and ONR leaves the vehicle looking and feeling cleaner than Chemical Guys ECO. However both work equally as well when mixed as a spray detail spray in my opinion.
ProsEasy to use, No streaks or haze
ConsIt is a little pricey.

Using as a detailer
So I think so far the best thing about this is the economy of it. I mixed about two ounces with water in a 32 ounce spray bottle. It didn't blow me away as compared to other products. But I can use this as a spray wash with microfiber towels and not worry about the cost of it. If you want to be impressed with a spray wax/detailer try Meguiars wash and wax. It has really worked great on my black ridgeline. I guess it has spoiled me somewhat.
ConsThe wax part is minimal.

Optimum has done it again. For my general washes ONR and ONR W&W has cut my cost and my wash time to a small fraction of what it once was.
ProsGreat product. Cuts work time to a fraction.
ConsThe smell is AWFUL. Wish it smelled like original ONR

Worked very well
Works just as good as ONR, will use a maintenance wash or even as love bug soak
ProsGet that little extra protection between washes, easy to use and no smears
ConsI think you could get better results with ONR then mist Optimum spray wax and wipe down, I would really say it has a con though

Great product for more than just washing
Great multi-use product! I use this per directions for regular washes. I also use this not-per-directions for waterless washes, as a quick detailer, for clay lubrication, for pad conditioning, and.......even as a waterless for cleaning the floors in our house. The product is not only AMAZING for what it does, it is amazing for the price. Great value.
ProsGreat cleaning abilities. Good wax and hydrophobicity / water beading. Works great for many other purposes. Effective when mixed 1 to 2 oz into a 12 to 16oz spray bottle. Tremendous value

I'm a believer
Was VERY skeptical, but works fantastically. I use combining two methods. Pre soaked towels in the solution and in a spray bottle, an a dry one to finish off with. Allows you to "wash" the car in the garage with no hose. Also leaves a water beading finish, even on the windows.
ProsEconomical when diluted. Cost effective, just buy a good quality sprayer to put it in.
ConsNone I've seen

Best Car Wash On The Market
I've purchased many car cleaning / scratch repair products on line in the past and the results never met my expectations. My son-in law told me about your product and I just had to try it out for myself; I placed an order the same day. The first time I used your No Rinse Wash & Wax I was amazed at the results. Your product actually exceeded my expectations !
ProsVery easy to use with minimal effort. It took less then half the time of the normal wash / rinse / dry.

WOW! This stuff ROCKS!!!
I thought ONR was a great product, then I bought this on a whim to see what is was all about and WOW! I was seriously impressed!!! I am a mobile detailer, and trying to find ways to save time and money is hard for us, but with this product is does both of those things easily and quickly! I am able to offer my customers a legitimate wash and wax, quickly and simplistically and they are amazed by the end result!!! I have been impressed with this product time and time again when i use it, the other night it rained after I had washed my girlfriends car and it STILL held on to the vehicle, feeling smooth and waxed after a quick rinse off of the rain water! Huge thanks to Optimum Polymer for putting this product on the market! Nothing else like it!

I'm happy with this product. After a particularly cold and harsh winter, there was no wax left on my car. In the spring I washed with this first before the weather was nice enough to do a traditional wax, and this did leave a nice layer of wax on the car. Water was beading as if I had done a traditional wax. Now that I'm washing with this product, I will reduce my traditional waxing to once in the spring and once before winter.

Great so far
Did both cars last weekend for the first time with this stuff. I was fairly skeptical, but all the reviews were so positive. It seems to work as advertised. I'm using the "Gary Dean" method, meaning a bucket of pre-soaked rags and pre-spraying the solution on the panel as well. I bought the ONR&W, Lavender colored towels and sprayer from Autogeek. Main goal is for Winter washing inside the garage.

Same greatness as ONR but with UV inhibitors! What more can you ask for. I like the smell better than the original blue stuff too. I'm a new believer in rinseless products thanks to this stuff.
