    I currently use DP Waterless Wash. And I like it a lot. But, being a hardcore Meguiars user I am definitely picking up a bottle.

    I'd rather leave my car dirty than use a product like this. Just not for me.

    Don't knock it 'til you've tried it. Personally, I've been a fan of ONR and QEW for a while now, so I was thrilled to learn about our Rinse Free Express Wash, but wasn't too sure about this product when I first about it. To be really candid with you, I didn't think was a great idea at first. The more I used it, however, the more I grew to like it. And at this point, I'm loving the stuff! I gambled and took my weekend toy to Las Vegas (seemed fitting, right?) for SEMA and got rained on almost the whole way back. After a couple hundred miles in the rain the car was obviously a mess. I didn't have time to give it a full and proper wash before wanting to take it out the day after I got home, but a few minutes with this product and nobody but a hard core detail enthusiast would ever know that the car hadn't been bucket washed. And I'm beyond crazy about the paint on that car.

    I just don't know...it just doesn't add up in my mind to being a good idea. Plus don't you have to go through several towels in the process?..then you have to wash them immediately before use again - more work! lol.

    But I know people rave about this particular detailing product in general...so it must of course be working for lots of people.

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere

    I use a couple of chenille noodle wash mitts with ONR - the solution tends to draw the muck down to the bottom, so all you need is a bucket and grit guard (and a rinse bucket, if you really want to be sure). If I use MF towels, I only wipe with a side once, so yes, I do go through a lot of towels. I've pretty much moved almost exclusively to rinseless washes - I just find it easier and quicker than conventional washes, and not at all deficient in marring-free cleaning.

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere

    I was very leary about using ONR when i heard about it a whiles back.....but after reading sooo many great reviews....I decided to give it a shot.
    I was actually very surprised how good a job it did and how much easier it was on my hands especially during the cold months.

    My method with ONR:
    GG 6 gallon wash bucket
    1 oz ONR/ gallon of water ( i filled up 5 gallons of water)
    fill a 2nd 5 gallon bucket with clean water to rinse wash mitt or 650 GSM MF towel
    wash from top to bottom of vehicle
    wash the lower parts & rear of vehicle last.
    wash one panel at a time, pat dry with Megs water mag towel ...repeat.
    finish off with either UQD or UQW

    I have to look very very hard to find swirls on my 2005 G35....so I can say with ONR, it's great when used as directed

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere

    Definitely I will get this product.. I hope only that will come out fast here in Italy, but now I have a couple of questions for Michael:
    -do you think that with this Wash&Wax product other products like Ultimate Quick Detailer will be obsolete? Which are really the difference between these 2?
    -I've got UQD and Ultimate Quick Wax.. when I will have also Wash&Wax Anywhere.. I don't need to use UQW after I wash with W&WA, do I? Should I leave UQW only for when I bucket wash my car? And should I use UQD after UQW like a final touch or should I "clean" my "not so dirty" car with UQD and then apply UQW?

    Sorry for having so many questions but they are connected with the use that I could do with UW&WA. Thank you

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere

    Apologies for the delay in getting back to these questions. Let's see if we can address these one at a time, in red below:

    -do you think that with this Wash&Wax product other products like Ultimate Quick Detailer will be obsolete? No, this will not make those other products obsolete as they do serve different purposes as outlined in response to your next question.

    Which are really the difference between these 2? Let's look at UQD, UQW, and UW&WA in turn. UQD is really designed to add lubricity to surface so that you can safely remove light dust and fingerprints between washings. Unlike our basic Quik Detailer in the burgundy bottle, UQD adds some water repelling (hydrophobic) polymers and additional glossing agents. UQW really should only be used on a very clean surface, such as immediately following a proper wash and dry, and it's great for adding some additional gloss and protection between wax applications. The polymers in UQW are quite durable and will greatly outlast those found in UQD. UW&WA is a substitute for a bucket wash when such a washing technique is impractical or impossible. In many cases people who live in apartments don't have a garage or driveway to wash in, and a hose is not available. UW&WA is a great alternative to an automatic car wash when a thorough clean up is desired, or when the level of dust and dirt on the surface is too much for a quick detailer. It is not intended to be your sole means of washing the car every time, all the time. It's a great product to carry with you on a road trip to clean up the car after a long day on the road, again when a quick detailer may be overwhelmed. Each product has it's own place, but not everyone may have a need (or desire) for all three. At least not on a regular basis.


    -I've got UQD and Ultimate Quick Wax.. when I will have also Wash&Wax Anywhere.. I don't need to use UQW after I wash with W&WA, do I? You shouldn't need to use UQW immediately following UW&WA like many do when finishing with a traditional bucket wash. The wax in UW&WA is pretty durable in it's own right, so UQW right after might be a bit of overkill. But since you won't be using UW&WA every single time you wash the car (or at least we don't necessarily expect you to) there can still be a time and place for UQW.

    Should I leave UQW only for when I bucket wash my car? As noted just above, this is indeed the time and place for UQW.

    And should I use UQD after UQW like a final touch or should I "clean" my "not so dirty" car with UQD and then apply UQW? If by "not so dirty" you mean just the accumulated dust from a day or two of exposure, then UQD is the perfect choice for removing that light contaminant. If you then want to follow with UQW you certainly can do so, but UQD is the better choice for removing that light dust. For most people, however, the use of UQD to remove that light dust between washes is sufficient at that time, and they'll hold off on the UQW until the next bucket wash.

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere

    Hello,

    I picked up a bottle and some of the new GC premium QD Saturday night and had the opportunity to try it this morning. All I can say is wow. Please note that it also comes with a $5 mail in rebate so how can you say no

    As my car is due for some paint correction anyway, I decided to give it a shot since I've been anxiously waiting to try it out. My car was dusty and a bit dirty, too much for UQD and ready for a light wash. I've precisely wanted this capability in the hopes to save time and extend the full wash cycle... it delivered, greatly exceeded my expectations. Seems as if I used just under 1/3 of the bottle and that seems to be the application sweet spot as Meguiars claims 3 to 4 car washes per bottle.

    I started trying different application amounts panel by panel first being conservative. It cleaned up well but did not leave enough protection as I would typically feel with UQW. After a slight increase, voila. Perfect! Very easy wipe, absolutely no streaking, and good protection. I highly recommend it.

    For reference, my typical in-between wash process includes UQD with sometimes UQW. My normal washes consist of GC Wash, UQW. My full detail wash includes GC Wash, correction and polishing as required (from 105 down to swirlx), and GC paste wax topped with NXT 2.0 for durability. ( But no NXT 2.0 before shows when I would use UQD but this will now to be replaced with GC premium QD)

    Great, thanks for the review!

    Did you get a chance to try the new GC QD? How was it?

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.
