Great for a multiple uses other than a rinse less wash. Watch your dilution ratios !!! Read the bottle.....

Great as a QD product
I use this more as a QD or clay lube vs a rinseless wash. The product simply works! Very slick, lifts dirt off the surface waiting to be picked up. On heavy dirt areas simply spray on more product and let it do it's magic. Overall it's a fantastic product for on the go situations.

The best
ONR is a must have product. You can use it for a rinseless wash, regular wash, dilute it down for a detail spray or clay lube. This is one of the best products out there. Highly recommend.
ProsLots of different uses.

Concentrated Polymers
Great stuff, very slick, great for rinseless washes. I've stopped using Quick Detailers in favor of ONR because it's so much slicker and easier to work with. Highly recommend getting the big red sponge (BRS) as it makes rinseless washes easier and faster.
ProsMultiple uses Extremely slick
Cons Mild cleaning strength

Is there any other product that can do some many things?!
I love this stuff! Great all around detailing product offering so many different uses. Of course there's the rinseless wash, you can use it for waterless washes, detail spray, a clay lube, in your bucket as a water softener(this does reduce suds!), glass cleaner, and interior detailer. There may be other uses, but that's all the ways I've used it and it's performed admirably. Light berry scent, not overpowering. Only downside is it can stain the wash media but I've had this with other products and may be the nature of the beast with RW/WW.
ProsToo many to list
ConsCan stain wash media!

Pleased with Results
I live in a condo without convenient access to outside water. I purchased ONR to see if it would help solve my compulsion to keep my black vehicle clean. I am very pleased with the results but it's not a time-saver-- it takes quite a bit of time to apply and dry by section on the car. Differing slightly from the directions provided by ONR, I spayed the mixed product on the intended section prior to applying additional product with the "big red" sponge. I was particularly impressed with the results on wheels and tires.
ProsMinimum water usage and it works.
ConsTime consuming

I use ONR for maintenance washes and pair it with Opti-Seal as a drying aid for ease of use and added protection. Great products!

If you haven't tried it you're missing out. I went from taking 1-1.5 hours to wash and dry my car with the 2 bucket method. A friend suggested onr so I gave it a try. Now I can wash wash and dry in 20-25 in my garage! Product has so many uses and I have multiple bottles mixed at different ratios. Love this stuff.

Optimum No Rinse
I have always hand washed my cars and have been very satisfied using this product for the past couple years. I have been so impressed that recently bought it for my college graduates, who lack access to a hose at their apartment complexes (ok, I also want to motivate them to take care of their most expensive asset). Works just as advertised, and saves the hassle of dragging the hose out every time I wash the car. Unless car is filthy, don't even need to use the two bucket method. Have also found this product works well in just below freezing temperatures (use two buckets with very warm water)- a significant benefit for those of us who avoid car washes. So far, 28 degrees is the lowest temperature I have attempted; will attempt colder temps this winter. Perhaps Optimum could come out with a winter formula (hint, hint).
Prossee review, great product
ConsNone, but it does enable my car washing addiction. i do hope they come out with a subzero formula !

Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine 👍
Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine I just can’t stop telling everyone that I know this product is amazing! It really capsulate the dirt and grime!

Used it at Mike's roadshow and it worked well even on my dirty car and saved time. Obviously not for an extremely dirty car, but for a light clean up or a restored vehicle you do not want water rusting it again this is what to use.

I am a true believer!
I really resisted the idea of rinseless washes for the longest time. I finally gave in and have to say, they work, and ONR is one of the best for sure. It is slippery and cleans the car very effectively. I'm still on the fence at how effective the ONR is at breaking up caked-on dirt. I believe ONR wash is great if your car is just a little dirty/dusty, but if there's dried on/caked-on dirt, you need to pre-treat with some kind of pre-wash to soften up the dirt. I did rinseless washes in my garage all winter, no matter how dirty the car got. I ended up using a lot of solution, and pre-treating the dirty spots, and yes, making a mess of the garage floor. I had to squeegee out the garage after washing the car. During the summer, the ONR can be used to very quickly wash the car, leaving it clean, smooth and shiny. Along with saving water, one of the great things about using ONR is that you can wash your car anytime of the day or night, regardless of the weather. No more do I have to wait for sunset to wash the car, or for a storm to pass, or whatever. I will continue to use ONR even when the weather turns nice again. Maybe occasionally do a "real" wash to get the wheel and tires really clean. Washing the car in the garage is awesome!
ProsFast, easy to use, can be used to wash your car in the garage, anytime, uses almost no water (I think I use less than 1/2 gallon of solution).
ConsStill need a "real" wash to get wheels, tires, fenderwells clean (my opinion). I know they can be cleaned with ONR, but I like a pressure washer and scrub brushes.

Works as advertised
I have only used this a couple of times now, but it seems to get the job done. On my darker colored car I feel like it may leave slight streaks, but it could have been do to temperature or dilution ratio? Overall, I am happy with this product and also plan to use it as a MUCH cheaper alternative to the detail spray for clay lube.
ProsIt gives you another option. Uses much less water than a traditional wash and is convenient. Can also be used as clay lube and a "detail" spray in a pinch.
ConsNone so far

Amazing product
I could go on and on about the washing, QD, and clay lube this product is as others have stated (and rightfully so). But what amazed me about this product was its water softening properties. I added an ounce to my wash as per the instructions and washed my truck. As I normally do after the wash, I was scrambling to blow it dry and then quickly hit it with drying towels to avoid water spots. Even working quickly, there were always a bunch (especially on the glass). After using ONR, to my surprise, after drying I had NO water spots at all!! Now THAT is worth the price of this product right there. Everything you hear about ONR is true. Just a GREAT product.
ProsEverything. Seriously.

Buyer Beware
I had a family once, wife, kids, beautiful house, garage most of you can only dream of. Then one day I saw autogeek had a sale on this stuff called Optimum No Rinse, it looked good, so I decided to give it a try. I ordered a bottle, mixed it with water and sprayed it on my dusty car. I don't know what came over me, before I knew it, it was the next morning, I had used it on my car, my wife's car, even the stove top inside. Before long I couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, and the only reason I left the house was to drive the cars to get them dirty so I could come home and wash them with ONR. My wife loves the fact that I had found a hobby, detailing, only I could care less about other products, or techniques. All I cared about was ONR. Eventually my wife got frustrated with my constant antics. Calling in sick to work to stay home and wash clean cars, eventually I got fired, the cable got shut off first, and then the water, and power. My wife had to get a job, and reluctantly left me at home with the kids. She worked two jobs to support our family, and pay for my addiction. One day I came inside to see how the stove top looked, ONR in hand, and she was packing up all of my things, things I no longer cared about. She told me she wanted a divorce, at first I didn't hear her, I thought I saw a smudge on the counter, and she slapped me. She told me she wanted me out by that night, so I left. With the clothes on my back, two bottles of ONR and a couple microfibers. I wandered all through the night through the neighborhood, washing everyone's cars with ONR and when I ran out, I realized what had happened. I lost my family and everything I ever loved or cared about to the devil that is ONR. Now I do dirty, disgusting things with my mouth to afford ONR, just so I can wash people's cars in the Walmart parking lot to afford more ONR. It's a sad existence. The part that hurts the most is that I know someday my kids will grow into adults, and they will buy cars, and I won't be around to wash them. So take it from me, use ONR at your own risk, and if you feel that you may have a problem, please get help.

I am stunned
This is the first rinseless wash that I've used, but I will definitely be using it more in the future. I decontaminated (Nanoskin sponge), cleaned (Pinnacle paint cleaner), sealed (Klasse AIO), and waxed (Pinnacle S2) my badly neglected 2004 Mazda 6 recently. I was very happy with the result especially considering this car only gets washed about once a year and never waxed. I've been trying to take better care of my vehicles now. Anyway, I did the wheels and tires a couple of weeks later and decided to do a rinseless wash with Optimum No Rinse. I used the rinseless wash mitt and a couple of microfibers from AG. Everything was going well, but I wasn't expecting it to look any different than when I waxed. I was stunned to see how much better it looked. I have no idea what is in this product, but the metallic green paint on my Mazda looked better than I have ever seen. It was shinier than ever. My wife (who never notices the difference in products I use on the Mazda) wash shocked. She said that it was hard to even tell what color the car was because it was reflecting so much. Even three days later, I couldn't take my eyes off it. I will definitely be trying this product out on some other vehicles and maybe even as an additive to two bucket washes.
ProsMade my 11 year old car shinier than I have ever seen it Very reasonably priced
ConsHaven't noticed any yet

Work and Time Saver
"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.
ProsFast, Convenient, Safe.
ConsCannot flush underbody by it's nature.

Amazing but not for the reasons you might think..
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).
ProsVery versatile Savings on water and environmental impact A time saver
ConsOverall 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.

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.

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 !!!!

A safe way to wash without a hose
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
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.

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
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
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.

No Equal
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
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
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.

Well, I'm convinced.
I was very, very skeptical of this product. The enticement of indoor washing and saving water while using more environmentally friendly products won me over. I'm glad I tried it - this is fantastic and does and excellent job of picking the dirt up to protect your paint.

Clutch product
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!
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!

Best, Hands Down
Forget paying the high prices for these special clay bar lubricants. This product makes is much more economical and works just as well. I just made up 2 one gallon batches, and don't even think twice about using this for quick detailing every day.

When water is scarce or its frigid...
ONR is the best choice I know. I have not tried others (like DP).I still like shanpoo and water!

Optimum No Rinse And My First Use
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!
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.

you can't go rong
this product does everything i used it as a water softer 2 cap full (1oz.) to my wash soap. also used it as a quick detailer 6oz. to 1 gal of water. (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.

quick, easy, beautiful slick finish
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.

love this stuff
I use this wash for the winter and can not say enough good about it. cleaning power is great and leaves the finish super slick. just dry with a soft microfiber towel and you are all done. a little of this goes a long way. it also conserves on water use.
