Waterless Wash Recommendation

Hi Guys,

Completely a noob when it comes to this sort of cleaning. Having jumped on to the private hire and reward bandwagon, will be needing to keep the exterior respectively clean.

I will give the car a normal deep wash once a week and was looking at some sort of spray system to just give it a quick spruce up.

Have looked at Meg's Wash & Wax anywhere, but it'll work out quite expensive in the long run.

Can anyone recommend something that can be diluted and used from a spray bottle or a small bucket.

Thanking you in advance.

Have a look through the ONR threads, when lightly soiled I can do my Jaguar in around 20-30 mins. You could keep a bucket handy. You could then just use any QD in between, Sonax BSD is a favourite for many with ONR.

Meguairs Wash n Wax is also available as a Pro version in 5litres which dilutes at 4:1. Not cheap, it’s around £80. I’ve used it in the past on the chauffeur e-class and it works a treat. Much more cost effective!

So I take it, it's simply a spray on and wipe off type of product? With a few mf cloths

I've been a big fan of Optimum Opti-Clean for a long time... Current version is 5:1 dilution ratio, so it's pretty economical compared to the ready-to-use products on the market. It's my go-to for waterless (Spray-on, wipe-off.) washing, when the amount of dirt isn't severe enough to warrant rinseless, or 2BM washing... Smells nice, breaks down dirt well for what it is, and works better than ONR @ QD dilution for this job (Better lubricated, flashes off easier without smearing.). Leaves behind a surprising amount of protection and gloss, and really helps to bolster the LSP...
