    Hey,

    I'm blackntan at autopia, btw...

    reading your thread on washing your car...

    Have you switched entirely to the no rinse?

    How's the optimum compare to QEW?

    Can't comment on what Scott is using, but ONRWS leaves the finish slightly slicker, and doesn't streak on windows as bad.

    Nice.

    Thats good to hear!

    How is it with dirt retention? I was impressed with QEW, but have heard great things about optimum...

    Would you use it after a winter full of road salt?

    I don't hardly ever use a hose anymore. I use No Rinse about 90% of the time. If a car is muddy I spray off the mud and then proceed to the ONR. I live in Illinois so there is a lot of salt from the roads and the ONR still works excellent. Totally a great product.

    ONR is noticably better than QEW. Cleans at least as well and better on glass, leaves the paint slicker and side by side, the ONR side has better gloss. What I had left of QEW sits on a shelf in my storage room.
