    Been at least 18 months since this truck has had anything other than ONR washes once or twice a month. Had to wash it conventionally this time since he went off road and got mud all over the bottom third.

    I really like Optimum products, have some ONR on the way! Does the regular Optimum car wash have the same properties?

    good question. if it doesn't I was thinking I'd do a pressure wash to take of the heavy stuff and then go back with onr

    I didn't notice any similar protection with the regular version of Optimum Car Wash. What I did notice is how well it suds up with only 1 oz of product.

    no rinsing required. I would highly reccomend it as well. I started off just like you i had it but never really used it and then i started using it when it got cold out to try not getting myself wet and never stopped.

    I've been using rinseless washes for 15 years now, first Quick and Easy Wash and now Optimum No Rinse. Saves time and IMO, gives superior results. No suds to get in the way so it is easier to see what you are washing and to make sure you don't miss anything. I have several ONR videos uploaded on youtube, just do a search with ONR + Scottwax.

    My wash process for rough vehicles and trucks here in the mountains.....
    • ZEP Industrial Degreaser 20:1 on wheels, tires, and wells.
    • (A strong degreaser but cut 20:1, perfect and cost effective. Awesome on brake dust.)
    • Foam dirty vehicle with Chemical Guys Citrus Clear Wash
    • (The Gloss was was a waste. This wash is just to break down and release dirt and bugs that are caked on. This is removed after 4 minutes with the pressure washer.)
    • I use 2oz. of ONR per 2.5 gallons of water now while the vehicle is wet. I use a blue MF dog bone pad and Cobra Guzzler. Wash and dry in one swoop!
    *I skip the foaming part IF the vehicle warrants it. This is only about 1 out of 3 vehicles I see.

    Think about it. By using ONR, I used half the water that I normally would since there is no rinse cycle. The look is better also. I've had customers tell me "I told you not to wax it!". Oh yeah, when I'm done, I use the old ONR to do the door jams! I can do the entire exterior and jams on a F-250 Crew Cab in 20 minutes........with no water spots.

    Since you are in California, I'd suggest www.exceldetail.com since that would be the fastest shipping. His prices are very competitive too.
