    Re: The Garry Dean Wash Method... Finally...

    A very cool twist on rinseless washing, Garry.

    If we can be so bold as to perhaps add a little something to it, we'd like to. Obviously the goal here is two fold - get the car clean, and do it without scratching or otherwise marring the paint. Well, add in the third aspect of using less water, which is a good thing too, of course. But the car you showed here wasn't all that dirty so your towel wasn't getting all that dirty either. On a really dirty car we would like to suggest that when you pull the wash towel out of the bucket, make one pass across the pre-soaked panel and then flip to a clean portion of the towel for a second pass, and again for each subsequent pass on that panel. Or lift the leading edge of the towel for each pass so as to keep that line of dirt away from the paint. Something like the technique we show for using Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere on a dirty car, as shown here:

    Lift the leading edge of the towel as you move over the paint immediately next to your first swipe. This keeps the dirt you've just picked up away from the paint, allowing a clean portion of the towel to pick up the dirt in this path.


    Two passes, two stripes of removed dirt.


    With the towel rolled even further back, a third pass is made.....


    .... and a third stripe of dirt is created. (the first one is on the part of the towel being held by the thumb here)


    Obviously the dirtier the car the more care you need to use when washing. And certainly really heavy dirt will need to be hosed off first in extreme cases - like you've been off-roading in a 4x4. But this method of loading a bunch of towels in a bucket of a rinseless wash solution is very cool. With one of those gamma seal lids attached to a typical bucket anyone can transport enough material to clean several cars without need for a hose.

    Garry, please understand that we say all this not as a criticism of your process, but for all the members of MOL who might be new to rinseless washing in general. We think this is a very slick idea and applaud you for your continued creativity!!

    No worries, Mike. I agree with your point. I use this method as well. The Porsche was definitely not very dirty. Thanks for the comment.

    Re: The Garry Dean Wash Method... Finally...

    I like it, I'm going to use it too!

    Also, to make my less abundance of towels last a little longer, would it be good to flip the towel and use multiple sides since there are an available 8?

    I know you have way more towels to use than me and this method would work well for people with loads of towels. I think it would be a little more sensible for me though to flip the towels and utilize all 8 sides of the towel or at least more than one of the sides.

    I love the method though!!!!!!

    Curious. What is your dilution ratio? I know you aren't using Megs products but they are similar. Secondly, does the solution settle to the bottom of the bucket with the towels in it?

    Thanks! In my testing the towels seem to lose a lot of lubricity in drips during towel flips that could be better used on the surface of the paint.

    I generally will use between 1 and 3 of the 8 available towel sides before switching to a new towel.

    I have my own product line and I am using one of mine in the video. Its called Infinite Use Detail Juice. Essentially its a waterless/Rinseless wash concentrate, but it can be used for many other things, like dressing tires... Sounds crazy, right?

    IUDJ stays suspended in the water solution. It does not separate. 1 oz per 3-4 gallons of water is what I use. For the presoak I use my IUDJ 1/2 oz to 24 oz water.

    Thanks for the video Garry. Im gonna have to try that method.

    Curious, what would one do to clean the wheels with this method? Pull out the hose?

    Thats a fantastic question and Im glad you asked it. I am shooting the video for my bucket kits today and I will be sure to do a short video on how I recommend cleaning wheels with my method.

    Fantastic Garry. We have all done the basic rinsless wash/waterless wash and I have pulled out the hose for the wheels. I have always wondered about getting the wheels clean without the use of the hose. Looking forward to seeing your method on cleaning the wheels.

    Re: The Garry Dean Wash Method... Finally...

    I tried this today and absolutely love it. The only difference is that I used 4 sides of the towel (2 sides per panel). I found the lubricity to be good enough for me up until that 4th side and then its good to grab a fresh one.

    I used 5 towels to do my Civic with ONRv2. I really liked the method.

    I then used the same technique on the wheels just using different towels (ones I have for just wheels and tires).

    Sounds good, Shawn. Im glad you like it.

    Everyone should just remember that I did this video as a guide to my personal twist on the rinseless method. Everyone will find their own path with this method. Just use your best judgement and make sure the lubricity factor stays high and all will be well.
