I met up with KC today to purchase ONR and try it out myself. Met up with him in town by the roadside. Really nice chap, explained everything in detail and did a full demo on how to use the product on my car by the roadside. Thats how this product works, u can basiclly wash ur car wherever you are, as long as u have ONR and Water. Went back home n tried it myself and my comments are below:-
- Great washing solution, you can just wash an entire car with one bucket of water. Very low risk of scratches/swirl marks from washing.
- Very mild washing solution , protects the paint in a way, but doesnt remove hard stains. My car was black , so cant see the dirt. But my dads car, silver color, dirt still can be seen on the paintwork. According to KC, need another product to clean heavily stained dirt.
-Has water beading effect , and gives a smoother touch for the paintwork. Deeper shine can be seen.
Conclusion: If you have restricted space to wash (condo), no running water, and want to keep the car clean often...this is the only solution for u. Perfect for me. I can wash my car twice a week now , keep it more clean. Saves you lotsa time too.

What is A Waterless Car Wash?
Waterless Car Washes are one-step products meant to clean and protect your car. They literally need no water to clean the dirt off your car. These waterless wash products vary in strength and effectivity but most of them can handle a week’s build up of road dust and grime pretty well.
Most if not all of them are eco friendly in two ways. First, they conserve precious water lost while hosing down a car. Second, they can be discarded on the lawn or garden and used to water the plants.
As much as 100 gallons (400 litres) of water can be consumed during a thorough hose down of a vehicle. This includes hosing down dirt and dust, washing with soap and rinsing. Pressure washers make consumption even higher. With millions of people washing their cars weekly this could cause an ecological problem. That is why waterless car washes are eco friendly.
Second most waterless car wash products extend the eco friendliness by using ingredients that are gentler to the environment than traditional car shampoos. Furthermore, a few of them are even marketed as containing plant derived materials.
Waterless Car Wash Products are the new “green” products in automotive car care.
There are several advantages to waterless car washes over normal car shampoo.
1. Waterless Car Wash Products are “green”
As discussed above, washing your car with these products saves the environment in several ways. Since green is in right now you’ll be proud of yourself into caring for our polluted planet.
2. Waterless Car Wash Products are light on the wallet
The first thing people think about green products is that they are expensive. You’d be surprised at how much you can save by completely switching your car care products to a waterless car wash system.
3. Waterless Car Washing equals times save
Washing your car with waterless car washes simply saves time. You don’t have to untangle your garden hose and roll it back up after you are done. You do not have buckets to deal with and water to dispose off. A typical complete wash down, shampoo, rinse, dry process will take an hour. This can reduced to fifteen minutes using a waterless car wash.
4. Waterless Washing is convenient
Because most waterless products do not require water think of how convenient it would be for you. Think Hard. No Water. That means that you can get to “wash” your car without being wet! You can wash your car anywhere! You can even park it in your living room and waterless wash it without having to worry about flooding the house.
This convenience is probably the number 1 reason why waterless washing has become so popular. You can do it everywhere and if does not take up much of your time. Think about making your car go from drab to fab just in the time it takes for you to finish a cigarette!
5. Waterless Carwash is a 4-step process rolled into 1
Because the method on which waterless washing relies on is but a single step you save so much time. What traditionally was a four step system of hose down, car shampoo, rinse and dry will be a one step wipe with these products. Do they work? Yes! And they work very well.
Best Waterless Car Wash Brands

Technically not a purely waterless washOptimum No Rinse is quite popular among car detailers. You do need water with it but you need so little. An Optimum No Rinsebath requires only 2 ounce to 2 gallons of water compared to the 50 to 100 gallons it takes to hose down a vehicle.
