    did some research and got interested in a no rinse cleaning product to try. so i got me optimum no rinse (onr) and was skeptical even though the reviews are all positive.

    i did as directed. about 2 capfuls on a pail of water, used the mix to wipe the car with my microfiber wash thingy, and wipe with a bunch of microfiber towels. here are the results:

    it worked as promised. has some shine but not as deep as klasse aio or glaze. i did the exterior, glass, wheels, tires, door sides for about an hour (as opposed to 2 for a full wash).

    i am also using a mix on a spray bottle as a quick detailing spray. can also be used for lubricating claybar.

    i recommend it for anyone looking for a full wash alternative, a multi use product, or want to cut down on water use.

    no, not the L word.

    ive seen pics of really dirty cars cleaned with this product from autopia. some use a sprayer to mist the surface before wiping them. but since my fx is black and if it gets really dirty, i might consider rinsing the car first.

    Your car looks awesome, almost looks like Phantom black... I park in a parking deck so this would be perfect.

    thanks. the multiuse helped me deciding on this product. the quick detailing spray works great too, slicker than my former klasse based mix.

    i did another "wash" using the rain method posted on autopia and it made cleaning much easier. the fx was quite brownish from all the recent rains and i was considering doing a full wash instead. i sprayed a qd mix (onr and water) on the surface i was about to clean before wiping. i guess the spray lifted the stuff off the paint making it easier to wipe. this time the results seem better, maybe since i used more than last time, or simply due to the product previously applied already.

    I purchased a couple bottles of ONR and some waffle weave MF towels last week from eshine.ca .
    That stuff works great as a Quick Detailer also.

    I also poured a capful in my Zaino car wash detergent and washed the car normally. Wow did that work great, I was impressed with the end result.
    Those waffle weave MF really suck up the water too.
