I'm not sure gizto. I know the reviews on DW are good but don't like the thought of doing a small section at a time and then trying to dry that section without getting dirt on your drying towel.

Maybe on a car thats not that dirty, just a few water marks from the rain or dust but i wouldn't use instead of shampoo. If you try let us know how it goes.

Thats what makes me dubious, the fact that i think it would scratch the paint. Tbh if i got it i would snow foam 1st i reckon. it does seem to give a wicked shine. Theres quite a few Optimum products i'd love to try!

Ive bought some of this and im waiting for 2 bottles dropping through my letterbox any minute!

Everyones going crazy for this stuff at the minute and i cant wait to try it after hearing about it a few months ago. I was apprehensive but after reading many threads and watching all the vids ive took the plunge. A guy on CYC.co.uk bought a gallon and is offering users 250ml sample bottles for 7 delivered so i bought 2.
CleanYourCar.co.uk - View topic - Optimum No Rinse (ONR) Samples
Hes running it on Detailing World aswel and as of yesterday he still had 7 bottles. Some of the guys who bought from him have already got theres next day so its all good.
Anyway back to the product, it just seems amazing and what would be classed as a miracle product. I mean 1 bucket (2 gallons) and 1 cap full and a sponge/mitt & drying towel and youre away. I'll use 2 buckets and a grit guard and before you all spit at the screen from me mentioning a sponge it'll be a Zymol one which are meant to be the nuts and what mose seem to use with this stuff.
