    Hey Guys, I just wanted to offer my view, since I`m the "New Guy" I feel I`m closest to the consumer end for products such as these. I was recently turned onto this "waterless wash" via armorall. I was not late to the car show, but running behind the schedule I had mapped in my head. When I arrived my buddy suggested "just pull up front, I doubt you`ll have time for a wash, dry, & polish/wax."



    My car being black and filthy from the fresh rain-spell I was bent on cleaning it, my buddy enthusiastically handed me a bottle of waterless wash. I was like what is this stuff? a million questions later, a long story short, it preformed well, and I still use it in the Meguiar`s form currently. I use it off and on. in between washes. I feel proud when I get down to the nitty-gritty old school bucket & soap. It feels cleaner to me that way (mentally). In the issues of water conservation, an environmentally sound products I`m all for modernizing - but should I go out and by a hybrid to reduce pollution?



    My breakdown is kinda like what a shower is to mankind, can a wet wipe give you the same fresh feeling as a shower? Probably not. Would I use a wet wipe if there wasn`t any water? probably would. For days when I`m out of time, or code enforcement is floating around I`d definitely use the product in question.

    It`s a nice upsell, but one that I feel totally comfortable with because it`s just very good.

    I used DP Rinseless last season as a reduced water wash and was quite pleased with it. I decided to try ONR this season, especially with the new formula. I used it this past weekend at a car show where I gave a presentation on detailing. I was VERY impressed with the product. So much so that I stayed after and washed my own car with ONR before leaving the show. I`ll be picking up a gallon next month.



    I also bought some waterless wash from PoorBoys World to try and I`ll give that a shot this week.

    Anyone ever tried Misting the surface of the car before using ONR?



    How does one use something like IRON X with ONR?



    Mist, IRON X, then ONR?

    CroftgateUSA. I have been using their products for almost 2 years and the results still amazes me. It does not only cleans your rides quick but also protects them. I suggest get the sample pack to know the`result`of`their products that was were I started, fell in love and still using CroftgateUSA until now.

    That`s what I like to do. Wet the surface thoroughly before wiping. I really think it adds more of a safety factor into your cleaning regiment.

    Ironx x needs to be rinsed. So you`d need to add a rinse step between ix and onr

    I haven`t used a waterless wash before but I have been hearing lots of talks about this method lately.` I had issues in the past with scratches on my car by using drive-through car washes, so I am not a big fan of these.` Can anyone recommend a brand of waterless wash and possibly a location where I could buy it in Miami?

    Watch this video on how to do a rinseless wash:`http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57BDoJjZAA4


    `


    I basically do everything he is doing except my towel is damp when I use it to dry. He also put up all the links for all the products he used in the video.


    `


    As for waterless wash, spray and wipe off technique, I would not try on a moderate to heavy soiled car. Light dusting, sure.`

    That`s how I always do it. I wash my car in the garage year-round here in Wisconsin with QEW or ONR and a few gallons of warm water in a 5gal bucket (with Grit Guard). I mix up a 32oz sprayer of ONR & water & QD and liberally spray that on several panels, then go back to the first sprayed panel and begin washing. During that brief soaking time, the ONR/QD have a chance to soak into the grime and encapsulate/lubricate it before I wipe it off. I have washed filthy, salt-covered cars like this for years, and it works great. I never bother taking the car to a DIY wash to blast off the salt first, as it would triple the time needed to clean the car.
    I may go through 5-6 MFs for one car wash when the car is very dirty. As soon as the towel is dirty, I flip to a new section or grab a new towel. My rinseless wash MFs are stored and washed separately than my polishing/LSP MFs, and are thoroughly washed by hand in a bucket to get all the dirt out.
