Yvan Lacroix says that ONR at the rinseless wash dilution doesn’t leave anything behind when dried. He uses the example of rinsing soap of your hands and tasting your fingers - you still taste the soap so something is still there. The same doesn’t happen with rinseless wash so, used at the right dilution, it shouldn’t leave anything behind. But you can panel wipe for double certainty.

Rinseless all the way for this solution. You can still do the 2 bucket method, use a pre wash in a pump sprayer, or even a rechargeable jetwash. The opportunities are endless. ONR is my go to i use a lot of it

It is something I have come around to quite recently, not sure why it has taken so long...actually I do, it’s much harder to get the pressure washer out currently so need a new method and it is pretty darn impressive how useful and versatile it is.

ah yes, meant to do this last night, d'oh!

well, I decided to have a go at this rinse less wash rigmarole, and tbh, I wasn't expecting much as I hadn't done it before, so im guessing technique will need to be mastered, but here's how dirty the car was in general.....





attacked the boot upper part first....



and was quite impressed, so continued onwards and I reckon I was over saturating the panels really, but I guess with practice I'll probably get it right at some point, but this really was all about trying it out, so not a perfect clean by any standards, think I'll invest in a Work cordless pressure sprayer and maybe a blower, and see if I can get it all done in a reasonable timescale, also have my "spotless water" account opened and now awaiting the "key", so I will be experimenting again soon I believe in rinsing without drying off after

think what I did came out ok, just got to wait and see it under the petrol station lights to see if it was successful or now in not scratching the paint badly

What rinseless product did you use? Also, did you pre soak the area with product in a pump sprayer first? That helps with encapsulating dirt like a prewash normally would. Doing the bucket and mitt, then dry method should be even safer that way.

Rinseless is also very gentle on LSP’s so should help longevity.
