Rinseless wash

I usually break out the traditional soap and water to wash my car. My buddy says he only does rinseless washes. He uses Optimum rinse less wash for the body and Meguiar's wheel brighter for the wheels and breaks/rotors. Any of you guys do rinseless washing?

Nope. Just washed my car with 2 bucket method. Washed most of the dirt off with the hose because the optiguard was as advertised. Awesome!

Gentle wash and rinse. Then waffle micro towel the car dry. Threw a coat of white carnauba on and car looks better than showroom.

Get optiguard!

I actually had opti coat applied today. I'm looking forward to washing my car next weekend.

You will love how easy dirt comes off. Extremely light pressure on your mitt or sponge, no need to press much at all. Use several mitts and clean/trade often and you will avoid scratches for years. Let us know what you think.

I use Optimum No Rinse just about every weekend on my F10. Not only is it quick and easy, it also works as advertised. Their other products are also quite effective in between washes and for small, light detailing, (e.g. bird droppings) etc.

Lakeom5, I'll definitely let you know.

Mperial, good to know. I might have to try it out.

I have been very impressed with optimum no rinse. It's extremely good for cleaning wheels too! Removes brake dust better than most soaps I've used.
