Really easy 15 minute solution. I'm extremely impressed how clean the car gets and the shine left.

It's not the same as doing a ultimate compound polish followed by multiple layers of waxes but that takes 2-3 hours. But for 15 minutes between big cleanings, I'm dumbfounded how well it works.

I am very pleased with Rinseless car washes! So far Iíve used Turtle wax (discontinued), Duragloss and now Griots. All have been very good. Thanks for the link, I wasnít aware that Optimum now has a Rinseless with UV inhibitors- thatís a plus here in Az. Iíll be trying it next, as soon as I deplete my small stash of DG and Griots.
Nice car BTW.

I enjoy using Optimum products when I can. Your car looks great for just 15 minutes of work.

Thanks! Part of it is that I'm using GLARE underneath after I did a polish.

Since Optimum has wax, I think it's a nice topper every week.

Thanks for the heads up! Your car looks great!

I was just talking/thinking about getting some car wash soap as my regular Optimum car wash is getting low. I did a quick review and seen that Meguiar's Gold Class is also a highly rated soap/wash so I did some math, to figure out which was the better deal, and based on that the Optimum still won. It's funny, I was just thinking about ordering some up when I seen your post.

I have to purchase on-line up here, as far as I know still, so I am going to see if I get this newer Optimum, wash and wax, instead.
Thanks for posting up your thoughts on it. cheers

My experience as well. All the rinseless washes are good. I do the "Garry Dean" method, which is easier to google than explain. Not particularly fast, but works really well.

Try it for yourself and see what you think. No reason to speculate. I use Ultima rinseless wash and couldn't be happier with it. I can make a 22 ounce spray bottle of waterless wash for about .50 with the concentrate.

I have never found a significant difference between Optimum No Rinse and Optimum No Rinse Wash and Wax. However, I have heard that their new Opti-coat no rinse wash is a big improvement over their current No Rinse offerings.

I looked into these wash/no rinse/wax type soaps just last Black Friday but couldn't justify the cost, especially when I seen my tried, true and tested regular Optimum wax on for 1/2 price.

Not that I won't ever try them, but it would make me a tad uncomfortable just wiping down, drying one of my vehicles without rinsing it off first. crazy

I like it because it just adds some more protection on top of the sealant when you'r doing your weekly wash.

Guess I had "wax" on the brain. I meant to say Optimum wash. I use exclusively use Collinite's 845 Insulator wax nowadays.
