What is Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine (ONR)?
Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine is a rinseless wash, a quick detailer, and a clay lubricant, depending on how much water you add.
Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine is popular in the detailing community because you do not need running water to wash your car. Often referred to as simply "ONR", Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine does not require rinsing. You can work without water and still get your vehicle beautifully clean!
Wash your vehicle without water in the winter
Since No Rinse Wash & Shine requires a minimal amount of water and there's no need to rinse, you can wash your vehicle in your garage. This makes winter detailing practical and convenient.
Versatile car wash product does multiple functions
One bottle of Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine gives you four essential car care products:
For a no-rinse wash, add 1 ounce of No Rinse Wash & Shine to 2 gallons of water. Soak a microfiber towel in the solution and wash your vehicle with the wet towel. Dry each section with another microfiber towel. There's no need to rinse! The lubricants and substantive polymers in the formula will protect your vehicle from abrasion as it safely cleans all vehicle surfaces. The polymers in ONR encapsulate dirt and cause it to drop to the bottom of the bucket. When you've completed your wash, the vehicle will look super slick, like it was just waxed.
For a standard wash, add 1 ounce to wash water made with your regular car wash shampoo solution. No Rinse Wash & Shine's advanced polymers and lubricants offer more surface protection and slickness than ordinary car soap alone. It acts as a water softener and conditioner to improve the quality of the water that touches your vehicle to provide the ultimate safe wash.
To use as a clay bar lubricant, add 2 ounces of No Rinse Wash & Shine to 1 gallon of water. Wet the surface of your vehicle to provide a slippery protective layer beneath the clay bar. After you've clayed each section, simply wipe it dry. This solution is as effective as any clay lubricant you can buy!
- To use as a quick detailer, add 8 ounces of No Rinse Wash & Shine to 1 gallon of water. Fill up a spray bottle with this mixture and use it to clean and shine your vehicle, just as you would use a traditional quick detailer finish spray. Spray on and wipe off. Optimum's proprietary polymers bond to the paint surface to protect it from abrasion and micro-marring as you clean. The incredible formula leaves your vehicle extremely slick and glossy, like you just applied wax!
