Optimum No Rinse as a waterless wash

Is anyone using Optimum No Rinse as a waterless wash? If so what is the water to concentrate mix?

The ONR sites I looked at mentioned clay lube and detail spray only.

I believe it's recommended at 12 oz per gallon for waterless washes

I use Opt-Clean for waterless washes and Chemical Guys Eco-Smart. Both are great products. I figured when Dr.G made ONR and Opt-Clean as different products he must know what he was doing .

Yeah ONR is not a great waterless wash as compared to the other specific brands but it will work in a pinch. 12 oz per gallon.
I prefer Pinnacle Waterless Wash w/ Carnuba

I use it only for when the car is slightly dirty (dust, water spots; not mud, etc). I mix it in a spray bottle though, about 1 oz per 32 oz bottle. And use plenty to get the microfiber towel wet.

Or a cheap home department store bucket and a gamma lid. $9 and air/water tight.

Yes, their buckets are actually one of the few hardware goods they sell that aren't priced obscenely (see extension cords, tape, hoses, and fittings ). $20 for a bucket, grit guard, wash pad and shampoo is an awesome deal. I mean, hell, they charge $10 for just the shampoo usually.

I just wish their buckets were slightly larger. Maybe one more gallon.
