    That's what I don't understand... I would expect it to be 1oz for 2 gallons... But Meg's is saying that the ratio should be 1:4 for rinseless as well. So for 2 gallons of water, you have to dump 64oz of the RFEWW.. That's a lot!!! And it makes it uneconomical...

    This from AG:

    "How it works
    Meguiars Rinse Free Express Wash & Wax is incredibly easy to use. Simply add a couple ounces to a 5 gallon wash bucket, soak a wash mitt or microfiber towel, and wash the vehicle one section at a time. After you wash a section, dry it using a Cobra Waffle Weave Guzzler or a Meguiars Water Magnet Drying Towel. To use as a waterless, dilute 1:4 with water and spray a liberal amount directly onto the surface and wipe clean with a Gold Plush Jr. Microfiber Towel. Continue this method section by section until the entire vehicle is clean."

    Thanks for that info but I'll trust what Mike/Meguiar's say:

Our recommendation for use is to dilute 4:1 and use as a waterless wash, but it's also great to pour 4 gallons of water into a bucket, then essentially pour the entire gallon of D115 into that same bucket for 5 gallons of rinseless wash solution.

    Exclamation Re: Mid-Year Introduction - D115 Rinse Free Express Wash & Wax

    So in debate
    how much of a waterless and/or rinse less is represented by RFEWW formulation.....
    but wait there's hydrophobic agents in it @ what ratio is consider optimal or not.

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.

    Thanks for the notice at ADS Strife, I scored me a gallon at 45.99 which is an excellent price considering its MSRP is 79.99. Got a gallon of the new wheel cleaner too, so I'll post a couple reviews on here in the next couple weeks for those still thinking about it.

    Re: Mid-Year Introduction - D115 Rinse Free Express Wash & Wax

    Our recommendation for use is a 4:1 dilution ratio. We did this so that volume users could easily pour the gallon jug of D115 into a 5 gallon container with 4 gallons of water and be good to go. We've heard more and more feedback from early testers that D115 works equally well as a waterless wash when diluted 8:1 and used in a hand pump low pressure sprayer like those shown below:



    When used this way the cost is down to about $.067/ounce compared to Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere, which is about $.50/ounce at retail prices. UWWA is what you should really be comparing this to, not D114 or any of the ONR products. From a performance competitive standpoint, the polymer protection and gloss left behind with D115 is far superior to other brands on the market. For all the requests we had for a bulk version of UWWA, this is the answer. Now, when you consider that you could dilute this as far as 20:1 (going to be most common in high humidity areas) the cost becomes even more attractive. You will lose some gloss, however, at those extended dilutions.

    As a rinseless wash, the same 8:1 to 4:1 range is going to be recommended. This is to ensure getting the maximum out of the product - by which we mean not just maximum safe cleaning but also maximum gloss and protection. We generally don't think of a wash & wax product as being a true wax application but more just a bit of a wax boost. With D115 the protection left behind is noticeable and surprisingly durable. It's a synthetic polymer blend, and as such we actually do not recommend that you wash with this product if you intend to follow the wash with any sort of paint correction. The polymers in D115 are slick enough, and durable enough, to impede machine polishing. Just as you would not want to apply D156/UQW just before paint correction, neither do you want to apply D115. We've even seen an impediment to damp sanding following a fresh application of a durable polymer such as is found in the above mentioned products. Our competitors aren't making those sort of claims for the level of protection and gloss afforded by their similar rinseless/waterless products.

    For those of you who use the rinseless wash method that Garry Dean suggests, you know that with just 3 gallons of wash solution mixed in a bucket you can easily wash a dozen or more cars. Or in this case, wash and wax a dozen or more cars. With an 8:1 dilution ratio you can do this 4 times, which is practically enough to wash and wax a single car every week for a year. For a daily driver that you are more interested in keeping looking good and well protected (as opposed to a show car or weekend toy that you want to keep at an extremely high level) that may be almost all you need.
