Hi guys!

With the cold weather, timing is perfect for a rinseless wash tutorial video. If done properly, it's a good alternative to a standard wash if you live in places with water restrictions or don't have access to free flowing water to wash your vehicle.

Enjoy the video!

Great video Pan. I just picked up a BRS and used it the other day for the first time. I am not sure I am completely sold on the BRS over MF towels using the GDWM. I found the BRS to be kinda bulky and hard to manage in small places. I also found I used a ton more ONR solution even with a presoak over MF towels. I guess have to perfect my technique.

Iím also on the fence about whether I like my newly acquired BRS or not. Iím gonna give it a good while before I decide, but it leaves a lot of dirt to be picked up by my drying towels vs using the GDWM, which I donít like.

I'm glad I'm not the only one, just got my BRS a few weeks ago and can't seem to like it over MF towels.

Use it more often and you guys will grow the like it. Be sure to soak the BRS overnight before using it to soften it up a bit.

Iím gonna leave mine in ONR at all times, as Yvan suggests. Iím hoping as it breaks in itíll feel like it absorbs more dirt.

I love the idea of swapping to it from my towels, I just hope I can find a way to avoid trashing my towels without having to pre rinse.

I agree 100%. My drying towels are a lot more dirty than when I was using MF towels as my wash media.

If you're finding dirty towels you may need to do a second pass just like any wash media. If my car is excessively dirty I will do a panel with one side and then go back over it quickly with the other. Towels wipe clean just fine then. The BRS is my favorite wash media for ONR. I can easily do two vehicles with 4 gallons of water and the BRS and two towels. If I'm throwing some OCW on after then there's a third towel.

Bought a BRS, used it twice, threw it away. Offered me zero advantages over a MF towel for washing.

You could have probably contacted OPT if you were that unhappy with it. No reason to literally toss $20 plus shipping in the trash.

Is your first towel to soak up the bulk of the solution?

Iíve used the sponge once, on my gfs admittedly very filthy car, so I didnít expect it to be the best demonstration. A pre rinse would probably have been a good move, but Iím more of a presoak kind of guy (since a pre rinse isnít an option for me in the winter)

I'll actually soak a towel in ONR and then wring it out really well so it's slightly damp. That I'll use to make the first pass drying and get the bulk of the water off. Then I'll grab the dry one to get any remaining moisture. Often I'll give like a half spray of OCW onto the dry towel as a drying/finishing aid but not always. Just depends on my mood. Opti-Seal and Hyper Seal also work. I tend to save the Hyper Seal for after I do correction though. That stuff adds some insanely wet looking shine.

Yeah I could have but it had been over a month and I don't like to complain about stuff i buy to try out, it's a chance you take when trying anything new to you.

Ah, I gotcha. That makes perfect sense then. And that's very stand up of you to do. :xyxthumbs:

You said that Mazda had been through harsh Canadian winter, but it looked completely clean before you started... Looked like you were wiping clean paint the whole time, no dirt being wiped away. You shouldíve shown the wash bucket afterwards, I bet it was clean as a whistle.[emoji2]
