Details below the fold.
Anywhoo, I decided to try out Optimum No Rinse Wash, Optimum Poli-Seal, and Optimum Opti-Seal from Optimum Polymer Technologies. I purchased these from a Canadian distributor, www.eshine.ca.
- >Optimum No Rinse Wash (ONR): I followed the recommended dilution, 1 oz. (approx. 29 mL) ONR in 2 gal. (approx. 7.6 L). The R was slightly to moderately dirty, probably more slightly than moderately. I washed one section at a time, from top to bottom, with a MF mitt until clean, then dried with a MF towel before moving to the next section. This worked quite well. I'm not sure how it would work on a really dirty car, but I'd be willing to give it a cautious try, after a quick rinse at the DIY. I didn't notice any new scratches or anything from using ONR.
