Waterless Wash & Wax Car Wash services for Cambridge, also known as dry wash or ONR.

Updated: Aug 22, 2022

With the current climate of prolonged hot weather and the possibility of hosepipe bans, here at Ultimate Valet, we have the best waterless wash and wax solution, for cleaning and valeting your vehicle, regardless of restrictions. So how do we offer ultimate valet services with limited water you ask?

Ultimate Valet and my sister company Ultimate Detail, are Opti-Coat approved detailers, giving access to Optimum Polymer Technology products. Having been authorised for over 10 years, Ultimate Valet has been aware of and been using ONR (Optimum No Rinse) for years. Developed in the US, where cleaning products and advances in technology come to market first, this little known product in the UK has been part of my arsenal for many years. So what is it and what does it do?

Before Optimum No Rinse Wash (ONR), there was no choice other than to use regular car wash shampoos that impact on water restrictions, and in many areas these shampoos are simply no longer allowed (US only). No more! Optimum offer the only alternative product that cleans AND protects your vehicle and protects the environment to. It will reduce the water usage to a fraction of a conventional car wash/valet. No Rinse Wash & Shine is the most technologically advanced car wash system to date, that requires just a single bucket of water to wash an entire car. Optimum No Rinse & Shine (as the name suggests) does not require rinsing with a hose since there are no soapy surfactants to wash off into the storm drains.

This unique product contains substantive polymers that bond to the paint and protect it from abrasion during the wash. These polymers offer greater protection and lubrication than conventional car washes and leave a slick and glossy finish behind afterwards. The waste water in the bucket can be used to water the lawn or disposed of into a sink, where it will be treated. Other additional benefits of No Rinse Wash & Shine are faster washes, the ability to wash anywhere at anytime including washing inside the garage during winter, underground car parks, no messy runoffs, and a better looking finish. These are just some of the reasons No Rinse Wash & Shine is being used by many people across the world, saving millions of litres of water every year.

Is ONR safe for my car?

The last thing any car owner wants to do is damage their paint, which is why many people ask whether a waterless wash is safe.

If you use a high-quality waterless wash, they are safe for cars. In fact, many professional car detailers recommend them and switching to them. Here at Ultimate Valet, we will be considering moving over to waterless, should the industry change.

Waterless wash products just require minimal water and plush microfibre towels for cleaning and drying to ensure a safe wash.

Is a waterless car valet safe for my ceramic coating?

Absolutely, ONR works well on properly maintained ceramic coatings! It even enhances the ceramic coating due to its ingredients, no silcones or sodium chloride like most average car shampoos.

Is waterless wash & wax any good?

Yes, it's the Ultimate product for rinseless washes. I wouldnt be using it otherwise.

All mobile valeting services as per the website can be switched, to using the Optimum No Rinse & Shine product, currently at the same price. Subject to change anytime.
