ONR Wash&Shine 2012 vs Ultima Waterless wash plus

I have notice that there isn't so many reviews about these two products.
So I decided to do one battle against those two products.

Products are: ONR Wash&Shine 2012 and Ultima Waterless Wash Plus
Let the battle begin.

First impressions of products:

ONR Wash&Shine 2012
Color: Light blue
Scent: Mild (undefined, okay scent)

Ultima Waterless Wash Plus
Color: Light green
Scent: Very nice tropical fruit? (little bit same as Wolf's "Mean Green")

I rinsed car with using 10litre bucket of water. After that I diluted both products. 9 litre water and 30ml product. (I used same dilution rate before when I reviewed Wolf's "Mean Green" so you can see difference.)

I decided to use also prespray like before. 600 ml water 25 ml products. (Strong dilution rate.)

Wash routine was: Rinse with water. Waiting and photographing. Drivers side, half of roof, bonnet and tailgate was washed using Ultima Waterless Wash Plus. Passenger side, half of roof, bonnet and tailgate was washed using ONR Wash&Shine 2012. I used dedicated washing liquid, prespray and MF towel with both side. I used only one side of MF towel when I was drying the car so you can see the possible dirt differences what my occur after wash.
Because I used only one washmitt I decided to use only one side with each product.

Washing method: Roof, glasses, bonnet, upper part of doors, down part of doors, tailgate, front end. After washing each section I dried it straight away.
Washing temperature was +3 celsius.

Here we go:

Let see what kind of results we get

So which one was better? Hmmm.... lets see more pics

So what was my conclusion? After all there aren't so much difference. I do feel that Ultima was bit more slicker and it gives you more "feeling" that it cleans better than ONR 2012. It has also nicer scent and it leaves better surface after wash IMO.

If I should choice one rinseless product only (Wolf's Wash&Wipe "Mean Green", ONR Wash&Shine 2012 or Ultima Waterless Wash Plus) and I wouldn't have to think about money issue I would choice Ultima Waterless Wash Plus. Why? Because it feels just right; scent, color, slickness and cleaning ability was best of all. But unfortunately I must think money issues also. So my choice is still Wolf's Wash&Wipe "Mean Green". It gives best money/value ratio.

Ratings:

Ultima Waterless Wash Plus
Color:10
Scent:9
Cleaning power:9
Feeling of slickness:10
Total: 9,5

ONR Wash&Shine 2012
Color:8
Scent:8
Cleaning power 9
Feeling of slickness:8
Total: 8,25

Wolf's Wash&Wipe "Mean Green"
Color:7
Scent:8
Cleaning power:9
Feeling of slickness:9
Total:8,25 (Best value)

This test is independent and totally my opinion

Thanks for the taking the time out to do a great review for us. I think if the Ultima is easier to get hold of, I might just order it in a day or two!

Nice review , ONR always seems to attract the attention on here which is why I have it. Good to see the alternatives.
I used ONR myself recently when the car was speckled with sand from the rain. I was a concerned after drying off to see streaks of sand on the surface showing in the sunlight. That will be down to my drying but I only use a light touch after ONR and I think the dirt on your cloths supports why. I will only use it myself when the car is dusty, I just thought I would give it more of a test at the time.

Thanks for taking time to show your results.

We couldn`t really get the Ultima in this country although I bought a few bottles before it stopped,
Did you notice it smells and looks like 3D waterless wash ?
