Rinseless washing, done right, is no more harmful than a one/two bucket wash. I have rinseless washed for over five years and have not experienced any marring or scratching that so many attach to it. I have used it on white, silver, grey, dark red and black vehicles. Many top professional detailers use it on vehicles far far more expensive and exclusive than our Darts.
Great informative post :wink: Thanks for the infoRinseless washing, done right, is no more harmful than a one/two bucket wash.

My preferred method is to place one gallon of water in a bucket mixed with 1 oz. of rinseless wash. Into this I place 6 high quality microfiber towels to soak while I go out to the garage. I fill a 32 oz. pump sprayer with water and 1 oz. of rinseless wash. I start on the roof pre-spraying each panel and work my way down the vehicle top to bottom. I gently glide the mf towel across the surface using no more pressure than I would use when doing a two bucket wash. I overlap onto the next panel just for paranoia sake and then dry each panel after washing with a microfiber waffle weave towel. I fold both washing and drying towels into quarters giving me 8 separate surfaces to use. Each towel is never re-introduced back into the wash bucket after use. They go in the laundry basket for washing along with the drying towels after they become too wet to continue using for drying.
One time saver I also use is to spray each panel after washing but before drying with spray detailer or spray wax then drying and buffing.
I have used all of the following washes and can recommend each and everyone:
Adam's Rinseless Wash, my favorite
Optimum No Rinse-ONR
ONR wash and wax
Black Fire Wet Diamond Rinseless Wash
DuraGloss Rinseless Wash with Autowax
DP Rinseless Wash and Gloss
I also used to use the now discontinued Turtle Wax version. Sad it didn't make it as getting that over the counter for about $5 a bottle was nice.
Could be worse. You could be a Bears fan.Gave up watching the Lions at halftime... Will always root for my "hometown" team but sometimes enough is enough... Lol
So instead, I went out and washed, waxed, cleaned the interior, and rain-x'd the windows on my Dart. Much more productive than sitting in the house watching my team lose, AGAIN!

The Bears have won a lot of division titles and have claim to one of the greatest teams in NFL history, 1985. Bears suck now but they won't be down for long. I turned lions game off at 14-3. No one but the lions can make Alex smith look like Steve young. I went to pep boys and Home Depot to get supplies to clean my steel wheels, remove the rust, and give them a fresh coat of fresh paint for winter... But I had to postpone the project until I can go to tire store and get the valve stems and TPMS removed from wheel.Could be worse. You could be a Bears fan.
