Turtlewax no hose wash..best product ever

Where I live the water is well water...which makes it impossible to wash the car without leaving spots...I saw this product demo'd at the chicago auto show...and finally bought some...this stuff is amazing...it takes half the time to wash the car and no water spots!

mix 4 oz of the product in 2 gal of water...apply with microfiber...dry with micro fiber...I LOVE THIS PRODUCT

Rinse Free Wash & Wax from Turtle Wax

the thing we have found on some of the detailing sites is it works well, but there are others that are far more economical nad work just as well. This is a 32 Oz for 12 bucks - that's 8 car washes per bottle,

Duragloss with carnuba rinsless is 12 oz for 10 bucks and is 1 oz per application (2 gal) in 12 oz bottles - that 12 washes per bottle - 4 more washes free.

The same with Blackfire and Optimum no rinse..more washes per bottle.

And yes, I have used all of them incl the turtle wax...and I do like it.

I will have to give it a try, I have well water and the car looks like crap after I wash it at home. I go to the "you do it" car wash that costs me about $7, and then spray with Black Detailer when I get home. It would be great to be able to just wash it and be done with it. I'm not one of those guys that enjoys washing the car all the time.

Rained alto here recently so the car is pretty dirty, would I be safer to rinse and then quickly use the rinse free wash?

yes .rinseless is only for slightly dirty cars...rinse as much as possible first -

there is a method for using rinseless that eliminates scratching the car with dirt that is called the "garry dean method" named after the "inventor" watch here:



I have used this for a year and have yet to scratch a car....I use the duragloss....

Have you tried complete rinseless washes with drying each panel after washing it? This reduces the dwell time that the water has to sit on a panel.

Interesting, thanks for posting ! This is nice for those times when your out of town for a car show, or it rains on the way to a show out of town or whatever. I know I could have used this solution last year a few times, going to Canada and Indy.

it requires you to have 10 super plush MF towels but so much worth it. My last car never saw a hose in 12 months...You don't need any two bucket crap becasue you never go back to the wash bucket with a towel....it is ingenious....yet so simple

my buddy and I do it every Sunday before football/baseball at the sports bar:

not to mention "crystal seal" - an absolute god send if you hate detailing....

Agreed ^

And super cheap, pick up a home depot bucket and gamma lid - $10 tops.

Glen where do you get microfibers from? I need to pick up a couple more but AG is just not worth it with shipping.

This is the place that sells them to most detailing houses - I probably buy 30 of these a year - they are excellent:

No I haven't, I've just always done it the traditional way. I will certainly give it a try.

I don't want to speak for him, but he hasn't been found of it in past posts.

I use ONR on light to moderate dirt on my car and it does work very well, but I wouldn't recommend it for heavy soiled surfaces.

The process goes very fast and I take a slight variation to the process and do a two bucket version rinsing the dirt out between panels. This works well since I only use it on a lightly soiled car.

There are many who insist you can use it on a dirtier car but my personal technique is to not try it on my Camaros.

I agree...this is for people like myself that keep up with thier car. If you don not wash often, then you need a flooded procedure (hose) But for me - in a condo complex - who washes weekly, it is a great way to do things. In two years both my '13 accord and my wife's 328 do not have a single imperfection on them using this method. Every time I touch the car it is with a new loaded towel so no dirt gets put back in the solution. And at the end, the remainder is poured into a jerry can to use as clay lube or another wash next time.

Coming out of the winter in the northeast with a dirty car, you'd be crazy to do this....but to be "down " on it, is shortsighted for many.

Now the one I won't do is the waterless products, these are different in that a dry MF touches your paint with a slight spray, like a QD. I don't like them either. They both microscratch, IMO. Either lots of water in a rinseless, or flooded procedure for me. In fact if I have a hose, a foam gun is attached.

Like the D101 I haven't been able to find this stuff at Auto Zone, Walmart, or the local Murray's auto parts store. Where did you find it?

why does everyone have an aversion to buying from a detailing house and have to have it local?

Never will understand that, you don't buy that often....


good stuff is not local...(usually)
