Where can I find Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine 8 oz in Mumbai.
I tried http://bringingbest.in/index.php?rou...&product_id=93 but it shows out of stock whereas EBAY doesn't list it.
Please help me I need to wash my Brand New Honda City to keep it shining like a Gem that it is.

May I suggest using Ultima Waterless Wash which is a slightly superior product to ONR (Green color; and miles better than ONR blue)

I got from Ultimate Detailerz (and the owner is a forum member as well) & his work & suggestions are industry's best

I am using Proklear - which is very good. Easily available on ebay.in (remember to use some ebay discount coupon).
I have been using it since October and so far, I have used about 30% of the 250 ml bottle.

Thanks Aargee for your suggestion. I had ordered a Ultima Waterless wash from Ultimate Detailerz and also a Maguiars Wash mitt from http://bringingbest.in/index.php?rou...product_id=244 and Sanjay was very particular about my order and it got delivered promptly and the transaction was smooth as well I totally recommend this seller.

Best of luck

Oh!! I should've mentioned to you before to opt for a microfiber washmitt something like this...


The one you've bought is best suited for cleaning, like to wipe the surface with Ultima Waterless wash. But the one I'm suggesting is for washing, like using car shampoo & clean the soiled surface. Pls try to get that one as well.

Thanks Aargee, I think right now I'll require the soft Wash mitt as I'll be using the Waterless Wash so this mitt will help in just wiping the surface clean.
The Mitt you suggest will work best for shampooing the car, and I haven't purchased a car shampoo yet. Buying 2 Products a month I think will be safe if I'm planning to still stay at home as my Wife and Mom are wondering why I'm investing so much in maintenance products already.

But yeah thanks for the suggestion I'll get this on my trip to Dubai in a couple of months.

Today morning while washing my ride, noticed some stubborn bird bomb remains which I couldn't remove by regular shampooing. Atempted to strip it off using Elastrofoam and to my surprise it was ineffective too. The stain is so stubborn that even after repeatedly scratching it with my fingernail (yeah, I was desperate), showed no signs of coming off. Seriously doubting whether the clear coat has been damaged. Stopped the detailing session (was intending to apply Ultima Paint Guard Plus) and trying to find solutions to remove the stain.

Can Meguiar's Ultimate Polish + Lake Country Orange CCS Pad do the trick for me?

Did a Proklear rinseless waterless wash of my car due to water scarcity in the apartment. Hence been almost 3 weeks since the car had seen water. Have to say proklear left me pretty impressed, considering I did no polishing post the wash. Let the snaps talk.

I have bought Resqtech 28 Ltrs Rechargeable Washer.

Can I use Meguiars Nxt Wash with the above washer? Or would I have to wash the car with hand manually?

Please guide me.

EDIT: -
Also which is better of two- Meguiars Water Magnet or Meguiars Supreme Shine?

EDIT2: -
The Microfibre Cloth came with the Resqtech Washer does not wipe the surface completely dry leaving water droplets on glass as well as body of our Elite and Xylo.


Can I apply Meguiars Black Wax immediately after washing on our Elite Stardust? Or does it require any surface preparation?

Can you please specify where you bought Resqtech from and how much did it cost? A brief review would be of great help.

Please refer this post Resqtech Car Washer (Buying & Using a Pressure Washer). I don't want Mods to get angry.

Water magnet is used for drying the car(after the water wash). This absorbs lot more water than the normal towel. Since it has rough surface, it is not suited for polishing/final wipe.

Supreme shine is used for the final wipe.

So should I use Supreme Shine for applying polish or wax?
