    First impression: The Gloss Shop Sublime Express Wash

    A special thanks to Migue, for mentioning this new Rinseless Wash product from The Gloss Shop in another thread:



    This is a rinseless wash concentrate made for ceramic coated vehicles which leaves no gloss enhancers (or anything else) behind. Itís also fine to use on a vehicle thatís been topped with a wax or a sealant also.

    Hereís a look at the label and instructions:



    The dilution ratios are typical for most rinseless washes, at 256:1 and 128:1 for presoaking or waterless washing. Itís available directly from The Gloss Company in 16 oz. and gallon sizes (although the gallons were not available at the time of my purchase). The price for 16 oz. was $14.99, with the total price including shipping coming in at $20.99.

    Iíve used the product twice now on my C5 Corvette which has PA Cosmic installed as the LSP.

    The first time I used Sublime Express Wash I used it on itís own with no drying aid. 5 TRC Eagle Edgeless towels were soaked in two gallons of water with 1 oz. of product. I used 1 TRC Twistress towel to dry. Each panel was presoaked with the same solution that was in the wash bucket. The cleaning ability was very good. I was super impressed with how quickly and easily this product dried. It seemed as though all you needed to do was just waive the towel near the wet panel and it would dry to a streak free finish. When finished the drying towel did not even feel close to being wet. Very impressive.

    The second wash I did was using the same method, but I added a spritz or two of Angelwax Enigma QED as a drying aid. This added more lubricity to the process and left the paint with some additional protection and gloss. This combination of products worked great together and is definitely a winner.

    If you are interested in a rinseless wash which simply cleans and leaves nothing behind, The Gloss Shop Sublime Express Wash is definitely one to check out.

    Looks like another winner from The Gloss Shop, their trifecta is also very good in my opinion. As soon as I finish my current bottle of N-914 I`m going to give this a try. Thanks for the review.

    Youíre welcome.

    Enigma QED seems to be more like Cure or Reload than it does a quick detailer. Iím still learning how best to use it, but using it sparingly seems to be best. One or two spritzes per panel is all that is needed.

    I bought small pots of their Fifth Element and Enigma waxes to also try out with the QED...

    Have you purchased Trifecta yet? If not, I`ll send you my unopened bottle, gratis, free, n/c.

    Never got around to using it as I intended to and don`t do waterless/Rinseless on personal cars so have no need for it.
