New Formula No Rinse Review

Recommended Posts

one more thought came up per recent Pan and Yvan comments:  if pressure washing dirt off a car can scratch the paint as they suggest it can, would it be better to (as they suggest) do a prep by low-pressure spraying the dirt with ONR solution to lubricate it before high pressure spray rinse,   or    would it be simpler to add ONR to the pressure washer  (would ONR lube the dirt quickly enough to prevent pressure scratching) ?

Best to pre-spray and let dwell for a moment and then rinse using a pressure washer. The amount of water it delivers is much more important than the pressure.

Only worry is that Pro+'s so good at beading, the pre-spray beads up and doesn't dwell on all the surface.  As an experiment  for when car's very dirty I've combined ONR with one of the better foam products to make sure ONR dwells on all the surface, then do a rinse, and then the ONR-only wash.

(New formula) No rinse works great on bugs too!

Just ONR @2561:1, Ultra Black Sponge, TRC Double Twistress and OCW as a drying aid. Just a rinseless wash, no pre-rinse, on a hot car in 25°C, fully in the sun. Most of the bugs came off with the towel.

For the rest of the car, just took it slow and worked panel for panel, came out looking great. For the wheels, which weren't that dirty, OPC @6:1, brush with TRC W&B Brush dipped in ONR, wiped with a towel. Followed by OPT Tire Shine. No streaks, smears or watermarks. Awesome!

Both of the cars washed this way:
