Anything better than NXT Carwash?

    I only have enough NXT for one more wash and was wondering if there is anything better before I pick up another bottle of this stuff. I have really hard water by the way.

    Zaino should be the only wax you use

    :rofl:

    there are a lot of things better/as good as zaino out there. Actually, you wont find a lot of zaino love on this board. Plus i think he's talking about a wash soap (rather than wax).

    I like optimum products myself, you can see this thread for a detail i did on my car using optimum's sealant, wax, and qd. I also use their no rinse wash.

    If you like washing with a hose, pick up some Duragloss 901 at CarQuest. Inexpensive and suds like mad.

    With hard water though, I'd seriously consider using Optimum No Rinse instead. Since you are washing and drying a section at a time, you won't have a problem with water spotting. See the detailing edu for more information.

    I am going to pick up the Duragloss 901 but it does not sound as strong as the NXT. The NXT did a pretty good job of dealing with my hardwater. I hope duragloss can do the same.

    Duragloss as mentioned is a great over the counter car wash and suds like crazy as does Optimum Car Wash.

    I mainly use Optimum No Rinse in my detailing business. You won't wanna go back to conventional washing after using this!

    I thought you don't want to use no rinse stuff on really dirty cars.

    ONR works really really well. I use it on my explorer on a fairly regular basis.

    I use it on filthy cars all the time. If the car is really grimey, I may have to change the ONR solution out about halfway through the wash.

    Quick question for you guys using ONR. How does it compare to QEW? I bought 6 bottles of QEW last year when it was on sale at a local RV store and I don't want to just push it to the back of the shelf unless there's a significant difference.

    Thats safe? Curious, this no rinse stuff would allow me to carry my own water for clients then?

    Side by side, the ONR side will be slicker and have more gloss. Cleaning power is similar. Plus, you can mix 6 oz of ONR into a gallon of water and it makes a pretty decent QD and clay lube. Add in an ounce of denatured alcohol to the same mixture level and you have a gallon of really good glass cleaner.

    When I switched to ONR, I used up most of the QEW I had left on wheels and fenderwells.

    That is what I have done since 1993 (used QEW back then).

    If I was paying someone to wash my car and they used a Waterless wash I would feel kinda cheated. You never have anyone go wtf?

    Especially if they don't recognize that Chemical Guys 50/50 is far superior to all of its contemporaries.

    Optimum No Rinse is not a waterless wash. It is rinseless. Read the detailing edu.

    My customers are amazed at how clean I get their cars with a gallon of water and no hose. Several have even bought ONR for their own use.
