    so i checked out this site

    http://www.ecocarcare.net/no-rinse-wash-shine.php

    now is this stuff great to use ALL the time? or only when the car is slightly dirty??

    does it just dry up?

    i know you pro detailers swear by this stuff? is it really that good??

    or is it just good for the mobile detailing business where you can wash car without alot of water....??

    I love this stuff! I wash and dry one panel at a time every easy to use. The big thing for me is my city has very strict water usage by-laws so I cant bring out the hose when ever i want so having the ability to wash cars with just a bucket is great!

    It should be pretty obvious which side was washed with Optimum No Rinse in both half/half shots...

    Just a wash job but it turned out pretty damn good.

    ^ dayUM! I like it, but it always feels weird when i'm washing my car cause it seems like i'm just using water. The car ends up clean though, even after washing my car after a 600 mile drive

    dumb question about this ONR stuff.

    I read the sticky and there is no mention of rinsing the car first. Aren't you just grinding dirt into the paint if you dont rinse to get all the loose stuff off? Do you really just dump your wash mitt in the bucket and apply to a dry car? :dunno:

    Optimum NO RINSE means no rinsing. It works, I wouldn't use it on my customer's cars if it didn't. Use it just as described in the detailing EDU.

    Just to clarify, most people use a wash bucket (with ONR in it) and a rinse bucket, to keep from putting the dirty sponge into a clean ONR bucket.
