In short...assess the situation and respond accordingly and use a wash that you are most comfortable with.

What works well in my world may always not work well in yours and vice versa
I can not see that this is a product for the Nordic market, regardless of brand.
You'll apparently be able to use it as a window cleaner, hope it works better for it.

Now, if the product is to lift and encapsulate dirt, should you then also just be able to rinse away the dirt ?

Nordic you say...tough one!

You can still use it as a cheap QD, clay lube, window cleaner, for interior wipedowns, light leather cleaner. Its still a usefull product to have.

One tip I can give you is to use the Rinseless wash to remove most of the dirt & dust and use a panel wipe when drying the car to remove road film.

Wax after that ofcourse.

Thanks for the advice, but rinseless washing does not work for Nordic conditions, we use studded tires 6-7 months a year, which means that cars are subject to very tough road grimes and dirt
We use naphtha based detergent, Cold degreaser we call it, similar or same as Panel wipe and tar remover, which is sprayed on the car, it solves soot, oil, grease, tar, asphalt and road salt, and is obviously tough for the paint protection.
First using Rinsless Wash and then panel wipe feels therefore unnecessary.

Maybe if we get a good summer, we can use Rinsless Wash for a couple of months

Once you said you live in a Nordic country I knew straight away why Rinseless washes do not work for you.

Give rinseless a try over the summer...It should be good then

Take care

I have found that lately I have enjoyed much more washing with rinseless method than normal...strange but nice.

In my case unless if it was mud (which you want to PW off first anyways) or insect poo rinseless washes always removed whatever there was on my car (even during winter).

Also if your current wash regime didnt remove it its not likely a rinseless wash will. In that case use TFR, Snow foam or APC first to soften up dirt, traffic film, let it dwell and rinse, then use rinseless wash.
When you use snow foam, after the rinse with water in order to take off the foam from the paint do you wait the water to dry? Or do you rinsless wash the paint with the paint to be wet?
Sorry for my pour english....

Sorry buddy...I diddnt see you there.

Dont wait for the water to dry as that can cause water spots. After you rinse the snow foam you can do a rinseless wash straight after.

Just caught this thread now.

I was stuck without any access to a PW, or even a basic hosepipe for about 18 months with my last car, so was forced into trying ONR, which I assumed was going to ruin my car (up until then I was a Snow foam and 2BM only kind of guy).

Suffice to say, there was very, very little marring ended up being inflicted on my car. Further to that, I ended up washing the car every week because I could have the whole thing done in 20 minutes. It took me longer to wash the wheels properly (I still used Bilberry and poured a bucket over them to rinse them) than it did to clean the rest of the car.

As already said, pre-spray from a bottle, a good noodle mitt, and a nice soft drying towel are essential.

Now that I have access to a PW again, I STILL use ONR regularly, it's my go to spray for use with clay bars, and even after a 2BM wash I sometimes spray ONR over the car to aid with drying. It always seems to make the car come out better, with far fewer water spots.

I honestly think it's one of the best products on the market.
