Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine 128 oz.

Clean, shine, and protect in one step…without rinsing!

Optimum has done it again! They’ve developed another product that marries car care and environmental responsibility – two things that are often treated as mutually exclusive. But, in this age of VOC regulations, Optimum is finding ways to enhance the beauty of automobiles and keep the environment safe.

Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine is a true breakthrough in car care. It’s a multi-purpose product that serves as a rinseless wash, a quick detailer, and a clay lubricant, depending on how much water you add. You don’t have to be a chemist to formulate your own excellent car care products; just follow the directions on the bottle! Plus, this product does not require rinsing. You can conserve water and still get your vehicle beautifully clean!

Here’s how it works:
  • Add 1 ounce of No Rinse Wash & Shine to 2 gallons of water to make an excellent no rinse car wash. Soak a microfiber towel in the solution and wash your vehicle with the wet towel. Dry each section with another microfiber towel. There’s no need to rinse! The lubricants and substantive polymers in the formula will protect your vehicle from abrasion as it safely cleans all vehicle surfaces. The polymers encapsulate dirt and cause it to drop to the bottom of the bucket. No Rinse Wash & Shine actually cleans the wash water as it cleans your vehicle! And it leaves your vehicle super slick, like it was just waxed!

  • Add 1 ounce to wash water made with your regular car wash. No Rinse Wash & Shine’s advanced polymers and lubricants offer more surface protection and slickness than ordinary car soap alone. It acts as a water softener and conditioner to improve the quality of the water that touches your vehicle to provide the ultimate safe wash.

  • Add 2 ounces of No Rinse Wash & Shine to a gallon of water to make a super-slick clay bar lubricant. Wet the surface of your vehicle to provide a slippery protective layer beneath Opti-clay. After you’ve clayed each section, simply wipe it dry. This solution is as effective as any clay lubricant you can buy!

  • Add 8 ounces of No Rinse Wash & Shine to a gallon of water to make an excellent quick detailer. Fill up a spray bottle with this mixture and use it to clean and shine your vehicle, just as you would use a traditional detailer. The proprietary polymers bond to the paint surface to protect it from abrasion and micro-marring as you clean. The incredible formula leaves your vehicle extremely slick and glossy, like you just applied wax!

One bottle of Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine gives you 4 essential car care products! And the performance of each is as good as or better than any existing, one-purpose product. Compare for yourself!

There’s a long list of benefits to using Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine instead of traditional car washes, quick detailers, and clay lubricants:
  1. No Rinse Wash & Shine is environmentally safe. No Rinse Wash N’ Shine eliminates the run-off that occurs from rinsing a soapy car. The rinse water runs into storm drains and out to bodies of water inhabited by fish and wildlife. Water that runs into storm drains does not receive treatment at a waste water plant before reaching a body of water. All the soap, oils, and dirt that was on your car is now in the nearest lake or stream. By using No Rinse Wash N’ Shine, you are protecting the water quality because everything that was on your vehicle ends up in a towel and not in a local pond. No Rinse Wash & Shine is water-soluble, biodegradable, and meets all water usage laws established by the federal Clean Water Act and the Environmental Protection Agency.

  2. You can wash your vehicle in the winter. Since No Rinse Wash & Shine requires a minimal amount of water and there’s no need to rinse, you can wash your vehicle in your garage. This makes winter detailing practical and convenient.

  3. No Rinse Wash & Shine helps you conserve clean water. People living in beach or island communities are familiar with water restrictions. These may include putting sprinklers on timers or restricting household water usage to just a couple of hours a day. These laws are in place to conserve water where usable water is in short supply. Optimum No Rinse Wash N’ Shine allows you to conserve water while washing your vehicle because there’s no need to rinse. One gallon of water is all you need to wash your vehicle as well as any ordinary car wash. You can still enjoy a clean vehicle at home and abide by local ordinances.

  4. No Rinse Wash & Shine replaces many products that are not safe for the environment. Quick detailers were one of the first categories of products affected by VOC laws. Because most are formulated with petroleum byproducts, quick detailers have all but vanished from retailers’ shelves. No Rinse Wash & Shine is not a quick detailer but it does increase shine and slickness as well as any quick detailer on the market. With its state-of-the-art polymers and lubricants, it enhances your vehicle’s finish without releasing harmful compounds into the air.

  5. You only have one bottle to throw away. If you buy a separate quick detailer, car shampoo, and clay lubricant, you’ll have 3 bottles to throw away. If you replace all those products with one bottle of No Rinse Wash & Shine, you’ve only got one bottle to toss. Plus, all Optimum’s bottles are recyclable.

Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine just makes good sense! It’s safe and effective on your vehicle, safe for the environment, and easier on your wallet than buying multiple car care products. For a clean, shiny vehicle, No Rinse Wash & Shine is all you need!

I've been using the Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine since 2009 and is the only way I wash my vehicles, summer or winter, keeps my vehicles looking like they just came off the showroom floor.

Better than you would expect
I have been using this for a long time. It works great for car that are just dusty or lightly dirty. It will also work on a very dirty car it just requires more towels and caution not to drag sand across the paint. I love that you don't wind up with water dripping out of every crevice after you dry it like it would with a conventional wash. It also works amazing on glass. In fact this is my preferred method of doing glass inside and out.
ProsFast No water dripping from crevices Works great on Windows Great for use as a quick detailer Leaves the surface clean and residue free
ConsNot the preferred method on very dirty cars

Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine
Product works great. I washed my wife's Expedition and Mini Clubman with about 2 gallons of water total! Then I used it as a clay bar lubricant for the Expedition and finally used it as a quick detailer on my Volvo. According to product information, there are more uses too. I'll have to check into that more for engine detailer, etc. I thought the price was a bit steep at first, but it looks like it is going to last quite a while so the price is not bad at all. Very happy with this product.
ProsSAVES WATER. Versatile. Not as costly as I thought before I purchased it.
ConsNone yet.

My job wouldn't be the same!
ONR has changed the way I currently run my mobile detail business, I have been looking for a cheap and easy way to be light on water use and be EPA compliant, and this is the answer! I am able to wash inside of an apartment complex, parking garage, or an area where low water run off is only allowed! If i wouldn't have found this product with the help of fellow detailers and the rest of the Optimum products, I'd still be searching for a way to contain my water!!!

Love it, never go back, best car detailing product I have ever used
The only reason to buy a smaller bottle is if you never wash your car again. I use this on my 911 turbo, dark grey color, without hesitation and it's BETTER than the meticulous traditional method i used to use. My pros: --once you get used to it, it's faster than regular methods --less water, and can store the left-over stuff for later in a sealed 5g pail --can wash indoors in garage--cooler in the summer, more relaxed pace if desired. Can wash during rainstorms or snow, or at night! --can start/stop the project at your leisure. I wash about 1/4 of the car and then dry, and then go from there --less mess --no need for getting out hoses, moving cars around, etc --car is ready to drive faster after washing as water doesn't seep into cracks as much --easy to get into the mentality of quick touch-ups after going through a few bugs, I just grab my detail spray (made of this) and a moist towel and redo the windshield or front of the car. --I live in the desert and use about 1 gallon of water on the whole wash (I do use filtered water from my drinking tap, but this would not be required) I use 2 5g buckets, fill one with 2L of water and 1oz product, drop in 15 or more microfiber towels. I tend to use a certain color for the very dirty underpanels or wheels, and the other color for the cleaner panels. I pull out a moderately wet towel and fold in in 1/4 size, then use 1 of each of the 8 surfaces and go over the panels. If a surface of the towel gets dirty I rotate. I then drop the used towel in the empty bucket and grab a new one, so the dirty towel never goes back in the main bucket/solution. I have not noticed any concern with swirls. I don't pre-spray any panel unless it's remarkably dirty; I do pre-spray the wheels. Since my 911 is a "happy weather" extra car I don't ever let it get totally dirty, but when my other cars get caked with mud I would occasionally pre-spray with pressurized water to break off the major chunks of mud. I use the optimum no-rinse as a detailer also, as per the instructions, in a large spray bottle. I follow this up with the ultima paint guard plus wipe-on-walk-away type polish and done. The car washing takes about 30m and the polish maybe 10. Beer and music adds another 5.

Great Multi Use Product
Bought this to use as a clay bar lube, but I also plan to explore all the uses of this product. I have also used this as a Quick Detailer and it works well for that as well. Can't wait to try it as a no rinse wash.

Quick safe sponge bath
First, I made some quick detail spray by mixing an ounce of this stuff with 32 oz of distilled water, but most of all, I bought this product to speed up weekly car washes. I mix 1/2 to 3/4 oz to a gallon of water in a 3 gallon bucket, and drop in 5 - 8 microfiber rags depending on how dirty the car is, then typically use one towel per panel\section going one section at a time and drying after each one. Remember to fold your towels to get the most out of each one. Working one section at a time makes it easy to avoid water stains in the heat of the day, and since this method does NOT require dumping countless gallons of water on your car, you don't get that awkward drips from all the panel gaps, mirrors, and doors. If this wash method has a weakness, it's that it doesn't deal too well with bug massacres, brake dust or tar, so you may still have need of a traditional car wash now and then. I've done 4 washes with this product, and can clean all the paint in as little as 15 minutes, and best of all, I have not added any new swirl marks, so I'm declaring this method safe. This product gave me exacly what I wanted, a quick and easy way to clean up my car without flooding the front yard.
ProsHigh lubricity, and picks up dirt very well. Smells nice.
ConsDoesn't clean up suicidal butterflies as well as I'd like.

Awesome product
I've been using this product for over 1 year. I must say it's a year round best product i've ever seen. I use it to wash my car, use it as QD and as clay lube as well. I became ONR fan the very first time i used it. I loved the way it broke the dirt and slided it off the paint. Highly recommended... Thanks for making such an unbelievable product which made our lives easier.

Garage car wash
I have been using Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine product for over 2 years. I love being able to wash my car in the garage with just two gallons of the mixed solution and no garden hose. I use a large microfiber mitt to wash the car and a large microfiber towel to dry it. I bought both at Walmart. I don't expect anyone who has not tried this prodcut to even believe it is possible. I was skeptical at first but having a black car I had to try washing it in the garage (out of the sun). I obviously was very impressed as I am still loving this unbelievable product. Thanks!

Love it
I've been using this for over a year to hand-wash all of my vehicles. IT is slick and smooth, and does a great job of trapping dirt. It also saves you money by allowing you to make a quick-detailer in bulk vs. buying Mother's or Meguier's detailers for in-between washings, and it smells great.

OPT Wash n Shine
Used it today to wash my wifes car which had a significant amount of road salt on it. I was quite surprised at how well and easy it cleaned the vehicle. Only suggestion is to have two dry towels handy. Also works great for cleaning the windows inside and out quickly.

i've joined the Cult of ONR
yep, it works just like they say it does. 2oz in 2gal water, a few microfiber washers, and a good drying towel, and you've got a pretty clean car. 2 gallons of water was enough to wash an Audi S4 Avant (B7) with less than 1gal lost. the 128oz jug is a steal, especially since i split it with a buddy. my car gets extra dusty in my unpaved driveway, so i used a more gentle and time-consuming procedure to avoid dragging dust over washed areas: first i did a "rinse wipe": i gently wiped each section with a very wet quartered cloth (really gently, like dragged across), slightly shifting it so there was a clean leading edge every time. this cloth i would rinse and scrub really well in the wash water, which gets rid of a lot of dirt in the weave, but eventually i switched to another when the towel got pretty dirty. after the first wipe, i went over each section again with a wet wash mitt and light pressure. the ONR does seem to rinse stuff out of the microfiber towels well, but that first wipe with cheap towels gets rid of the bulk of the filth to keep the mitt from building up grunge. last, i used a waffle-weave microfiber towel to dry each panel. you really can see the ONR (and your car's wax) working at this stage, as water comes off easily and small streaks dry cleanly. drops will still leave marks, so don't get sloppy about drips and seals! i mixed up 2oz ONR and 32oz distilled water in a sprayer to try as a quick detailer. i used it on the hood and on a couple panels where drips ended up. it works well, cleaned up the drips easily, and only smells faintly sweet. (i can't dig on the cinnamon-smelling Mother's stuff that came with their clay bar kit.) it also stays fairly watery, which seems to be better-absorbed by the microfiber terry than thicker liquids. overall, the ONR worked really well to clean the dust, pollen, and smog soot off my car. it seemed to loosen a couple small spots that could have been tree drips or dirty bird droppings, but some bits needed loosening with a fingernail. it doesn't look like a serious sap and tar remover, but it works beautifully for a weekly or bi-weekly cleaning intended to remove daily grime.

Great for buffing debris
When I moved to NYC I lost all ability to wash my car as I used to. I detest having to pay some ex con to rub a rusty old rag on my car at my local car wash. That was until I found this stuff, this product is fantastic. It is also Ideal to remove compounding residue (little white dots that drive me crazy). I have been using this on my black car for 2 years and it works flawlessly.

It gives me swirl free washing on my vehicles during winter. I've also used it as a clay bar lubricant as well as a quick detailer and it gives me an amazing result.

Can't go wrong
I was very nervous to use this product at first. But after seeing the results of it, I decided to get some. I have yet to use it as a QD or clay lube, though I just know already it will perform well. As a rinseless wash I cannot get over how much easier it is to wash my car. It is a lot quicker as well! I look forward to trying more of Optimum's products now.

A "must have"!
One of the best detailing products you can own. Safe and effective, while enabling you to wash a vehicle without a hose. Great for a winter wash when you don't want to soak your garage or driveway with gallons of water, or apartment dwellers without access to a hose. Leaves a great finish, too!

Wash, QD, Clay Lube.
What can this thing not do? Optimum really makes great products, and this one is sure up there. When I first opened this, I thought "It smells so good" I know that does not matter, but it is sure a plus. With this thing being a no rinse wash, QD, AND clay lube, why would you not buy it? It's so cost efficient. The clay lube is really slick, and the no rinse wash makes you able to wash indoors during those harsh winters. I have yet to try it as a QD, but I'm sure it won't fail me. You guys really have to try this product!
