What’S going on, everybody Welcome to my blog in this highly requested article, I’m going to be reviewing the pns absolute renssis wash, and I’m going to be going over all the uses this product I was designed for, and I’m also going to be, comparing it with the Mykeys37 and the optimum no rinse new formula, I’m going to put them to the test and I’m going to push him to their limits and see how they Stack Up and how they compare.
So, let’s get into it. So if you’re wondering what a recess wash is – and you wanted to try this product uh if you haven’t already but don’t really understand the resistance concept I’ll give you my take and kind of tell you why I’m a huge proponent of varissa’s washes and why. I think they’re far superior to a traditional car soap now. The biggest reason for me is that this product is highly versatile and you can eliminate a lot of your existing dedicated products in Your Arsenal and replace them just with this.
And so I always say that the rinses wash is a most minimalistic approach to detailing. As the product can be diluted in many different uh, dilution ratios for many uses and eliminate and replace a lot more dedicated products in Your Arsenal, including your glass, cleaner, your clay, lubricant, your quick detailer, slash drying Aid, Interior Cleaners for mild situations and carpet upholsteries and The list goes on, the product is safe, it’s a PhD neutral, it’s a it’s a pure, cleaner, it doesn’t carry nasio2s or any type of protection, and so it won’t change your surface tension.
It won’t strip any waxes or sealants, so it is safe on coated and non-coated vehicles. You can use it on matte finishes, you can use it on your Plastics and you can use it on pretty much every surface of the vehicle and it won’t damage anything. And so that alone is very cost effective, as the bottle only cost, uh 23 dollars for 32 ounces, and so it’s a very full, affordable product and for your rinses wash with two gallons of water.
It’S only going to cost you at 70 cents at one ounce of product you’re going to need for that, so it’s very cost effective. What I also like about the rinses wash is the technology behind it. It provides crazy amounts of lubrication when you’re contact watching your vehicle and because of the formulation it also acts like a water softener, so it won’t leave any hard water stains behind. It’S always going to leave a polymer base behind. So it’s very safe, high levels of lubrication and the formula has been designed to not only emulsify the dirt on the vehicle.
It also encapsulates it so that makes it a lot safer because the media picks up the dirt with it and takes it away from the surface. So when it comes down to your drying stage, it’s it’s a lot safer for you to dry the vehicle since the products on there and you have the lubrication already the chances of mowing your vehicle are minimum. Now, if you don’t feel confident enough, you can always use the same product and a different dilution ratio and use it as a dry nade.
And so then you don’t need other dedicated products so again, very versatile and very cost effective. Now the other big thing that I prefer over the traditional car soaps, because I wash my cars indoors – I don’t like the mess that the traditional soap would make and I’ll have to clean.
After all, the suds, the rinses wash uses minimum water, it doesn’t sud and it’s a lot cleaner to work with indoors. Now. One misconception that’s out there and because of the name, maybe is that a lot of people think because it’s a rinses, washer you’re not supposed to pre-rinse your vehicle or pre-treat your vehicle, and that is kind of false information.
Uh, you think of it as the pre-treatment stage and the pre-washing stage a whole stage of its own before you get into contact wash the erisa swash is going to be your point of contact wash after your pre-treatment, so don’t think of it as a waterless wash There, where there’s no water involved, it just simply states that you don’t need to rinse after you’re done your contact wash because this product lifts up and emulsifies and encapsulates all the dirt behind left behind and you’ll, be able to after go ahead and dry the vehicle.
Without having to rinse it again, whereas the soap, the traditional soap, you would have to rinse off the vehicle because there will be residue Left Behind these products do not leave any residue behind, whereas the traditional soaps.
In most cases they do leave residue behind. So you have to give it a thorough rinse, and so this is pns’s first attempt into the recess washing world. This is their first Formula they released earlier this year and they designed it around existing rinses watch Concepts, so they have the same. Dilution ratios, as other rental swatches. We know like onr and McKees, and you can use it at a a standard 256 to 1 dilution ratio for your contact wash, which means a half ounce to one gallon of water, or also known as one capful to a gallon of water.
However, I did measure the capful and it wasn’t quite a half ounce. It was more of a 11 MLS, but it’s not a big deal. The only thing that means is that you’re gon na have to give it a heaping capful Into Your solution to get the proper dilution ratio or use a proper measuring cup. I noticed that the product here states that it has gloss enhancers and again it’s not a concern. It won’t change any of your surface tension.
It just means that it will leave a a gloss finish behind. Like I mentioned, this product does not carry any type of protection. There is no sealants or sr2s in here it’s just a purely cleaner. It comes in at 32 ounces. In a gallon, I get the 32 ounces.
I find this to be plenty for a diyer and the cost on this is 23 Canadian, which is cheaper than than the onr which comes in at about 25, Canadian and cheaper than the McKees that comes in at 28. Canadian and all these are 32 ounce bottles. So it’s very reasonably priced. I noticed that the viscosity is a lot thicker. It’S a white color, it’s a little bit thicker than the other Solutions.
It does dissolve great into the bucket wash and I did feel the lubrication when I was dissolving it. So I had no issues there. It does smell kind of like a perfume or lotion like a really good smell. It leaves a good scent behind and uh I’m going to be trying it out on all the dilution ratios here stated in the back of the bottle and I’m going to form an opinion as I’ve been using it for a couple months now for the first test. I’M using the absolute as a rinses wash at 256 to 1, and I would consider the vehicle to be borderline soiled, for instance, watch in this case uh.
Typically, I would rinse it down with a pressure washer beforehand or I would use some sort of a pre-foam wash. However, I wanted to put the absolute to the test, so I did a pre-treatment on the panels with absolute at 256 to 1 just to break down any embedded contaminants on the surface, and I use the same solution that I had in my one bucket, and so I just kind of dunked the ik sprayer into the bucket and used that same solution beforehand, and so I noticed that they’re great now.
What really impressed me was when I applied the absolute onto the panels with the ultra black sponge. I noticed how slick it was, and I’ve never experienced that with any other rinses wash. It was such a great user experience and it made me feel a lot comfortable when I was uh washing the vehicle and it almost reminded me of B maker.
It was really really slick, mind you. This product doesn’t leave any protection behind, but the thickness was amazing and the same goes when I was driving the vehicle to. I noticed how slick it was and I was very comfortable with the overall contact wash with this product, and then I also noticed when I was drawing the vehicle. The towel never picked up any dirt, and that was a good sign that the absolute does emulsify and encapsulate all the dirt from the panel, which makes it very safe. Now for the next panel, I wanted to push the boundaries and I don’t typically recommend this.
Usually, I would pre-spray a an APC oil to rinse it off with my pressure washer, but I wanted to see what the absolute could do here. So I pre-treated the panel with the same dilution at 256 to one same as the previous panels. It did look that it emulsified and encapsulated most of the surface, so I did softened up all the contaminants. I proceeded with caution when it came down to the contact wash because I didn’t know how well it would perform. But I realized that it was very slick again and I was very comfortable with it and I noticed that it didn’t leave any streaking behind.
So, typically, at this level of soil, rinseless washes kind of struggle, but the absolute did really great, and I noticed on the plastic panel that I didn’t see any signs of streaking or any dirt left behind and overall I was really happy with the user experience and I liked the gloss that I left behind so here I’m trying the absolute 256 to 1 in the spray bottle and the windshield was moderate soiled.
So I didn’t see any signs of streaking. The product did encapsulate a lot of the dirt and it was pretty easy to clean the glass. However, technique also plays a big matter here. You want to be using the right, towels and the right methods to get strictly streak free, clean glass, but overall it did a really good job on glass.
Now, when it comes down to Interior cleanings, I typically like using the rinses washes at 256 to 1. For light, Maintenance, Cleaning, nothing really heavy and what I really like using it is on Fabrics so on carpeted areas in upholstery. I really like using the rinses wash to maintain and clean any spots, and the absolute did amazing here on that, and it left a really nice scent behind now. I also tried the absolute at a dirtier panel here, and I noticed it did really good. However, if you’re going to be dealing with uh dirty Vehicles like heavy solar vehicles, I do recommend you picking up a dedicated interior cleaner for those purposes.
I find that rinse swatches are typically better for maintaining your vehicle. So if you have a clean vehicle, you just want to dust that offer give it a quick wipe down. That’S where these products are really effective, and I also noticed when I was done with cleaning all the panels, including the dash. There was no evidence of streaking. It did leave a clean finish behind and it didn’t gloss anything up.
It left it all natural and matte. Now this won’t provide you any UV protection whatsoever, but it is a good maintenance, uh cleaning product. Now, when it comes to cleaning the vehicle, I suggest you saturating your clay towel into your clean rinses wash solution beforehand and then dilute the appropriate ratio of 128 to 1 In this case, I have done my pre-measurements and uh. It was a quarter capful for one liter, which equals to the uh 128 to 1 per gallon. And again I was really impressed with the lubrication it provided.
I had no uh concerns it uh. It was a great combination between the towel and this product, so it felt really really thick on the surface and very effective. Now here, I’m trying the absolute at a 1 to 64 dilution ratio as a quick detailer. So I found some mild spots on the hood and I try to test it out again. It was really really slick.
However, I also tried the same test with a dilution ratio of 128 to 1 and I found it to be just as effective, so I kind of stuck with a 128 to 1 dilution ratio instead, and so, as you see, the hood is really clean again and Safe, no evidence of marring or evidence of damage now for the comparison test, I’m going to be going over the most popular dilution ratios, and that includes a rinses wash 256 to 1, which is going to be like your normal standard contact wash, and I don’t recommend Some of these uh demos here that I’m doing I don’t recommend you doing them to your vehicle.
These are just purely for demonstration purposes, and I just wanted to push the boundaries and see what the products are able to do, and you know see the limitations, and so I got ta say for the Restless wash all three products did equally well. I noticed they were able to pull the dirt uh really safely out of the panel and uh when I dry them with some microfiber towels. I the my keys kind of felt behind. I noticed it was a little bit uh dirt Left Behind.
However, the absolute and the onr were pretty clean, so nothing transferred onto the towels, and then I also had a control panel to show you guys how caked on the uh dirt was onto the surface and the water wasn’t able to even rinse it off for the Next test, I’m using the all three products as a waterless wash at 128 to 1, and I’m not a fan of rinses washes.
Personally, I find them not to be the safest way to proceed with a contact wash. However, all three products had great lubrication and they were able to pull again the dirt out of the surface safely and there was no evidence of a transfer of dirt onto the microfiber towels, and I also noticed that there was no vertical marring Left Behind either.
So all products removed the contamination safely. Now, when I tested all three products uh when cleaning glass, I used, the windshield was uh moderate to moderate to uh heavy contaminated, and I use all products in a spray bottle: uh 256 to 1 dilution ratio, as recommended, and I noticed that the onr was leading The way it gave me the best working time and it didn’t leave any streaking behind absolute came really close um with the RNR very similar characteristics when cleaning glass at that ratio, and surprisingly the McKees was giving me a hard time.
I noticed a lot of uh flashing and it gave me more working time to get rid of streaks now mind. You went cleaning glass like I mentioned before. It’S not just the products technique and towels are big contribution as well, but in the end all three products gave me the end result. I just thought I had to work a little bit harder for with the my keys and so on. My second test.
I use all three products at a 128 to one dilution ratio, which will be your quick detailer, slash, drying Aid. And, surprisingly enough, I noticed that at that dilution ratio, the onr and the absolute were the ones that were streaking and the McKees performed the best. In this test, uh, it didn’t leave me any streaking and was able to clean effectively the soiled glass, and this was the same windshield. I just waited a few days. The vehicle got soiled again, so I did the same test on the same glass just a few days later, and so it was a very interesting observation, uh to see a heavier dilution.
The McKees was more effective and it didn’t give me any streaking, whereas the absolute and the onr were streaking um, pretty bad, but again in the end, uh with uh the appropriate towels. I was able to achieve the streak. The streak free finish so for the next test. I tested all the three products of dilution ratio 256 to one as an interior, cleaner and wipe down, and I didn’t notice anything mind-blowing or crazy. All products cleaned the surface, uh pretty good.
It didn’t leave anything behind mind you. These products also would not provide any UV protection and they’re not going to gloss up your Interiors they’re, just gon na pretty much clean and leave a clean surface behind, and that ratio is recommended, more for mildly, soiled vehicles, and so all three products here perform the Exact same, however, on this panel here, I use the product at a 128 to one dilution ratio, kind of like a interior detailer, and just I wanted to see if it’s able to pull more dirt on a heavier soiled interior panel and again, all three products performed.
The exact same way – and I didn’t really see much of a difference, so all three cleaned the panel and mind you this panel is really scratched up and really beat up. So if you see some marks and scuffs, it’s not the cleaners, it’s just the nature of the panel, but I will recommend for heavily Interiors to get yourself a dedicated interior, cleaner or use a heavier type of chemical. You get way better results and here again at 128 to 1.
I just wanted to see. What’S it going to do on a mild lead to moderate uh soiled uh rubber floor mat. Surprisingly, all three products did really good and it didn’t leave any streaking behind any dirt marks behind. I saw that all three products again were performed equally well. However, again, if your mats are heavily soiled, an APC or another type of chemical will be more effective in these situations.
Now, for the next test, I’m using all three products as a dry nade, slash, quick detailer, and that is a 128 to 1. Again. Dilution ratio for all three products. I started off with the my keys and I had no issues with streaking with any of these products. They provided great lubrication.
I feel very confident in drawing the surfaces with it. However, for this test and this application, I’m going to give the edge to the absolute as it was, the slickest and I had the best user experience when I was wiping down the panel over the my keys and the onr, the onr came really close.
Actually, at 128 to 1 ratio, it was it felt I felt a lot of lubrication with that product as well and uh, but I got ta say when I try after I wipe down the panels and I kind of felt the panel uh. I noticed that the absolute left a little bit of uh slickness behind and here again I just uh – wanted to see on my wheel on my matte wheel, um how these products are going to perform, and I was a little bit sketchy at the beginning because I Didn’T want to scratch or contact wash these uh wheels at this level of uh soil. However, I flushed as much as I could off the surface and the products were able to encapsulate most of the dirt sitting on the surface, and this is a coated Wheel by the way so for maintenance.
These products will do great on your wheels like by drawing them or even wiping them down, if they’re, not that caked on so again, all three products came through. I didn’t see any signs of damage any signs of scratching, and I was very careful with it like. I said I did uh flush as much as I could, and then I damped the towel. I didn’t drag it to prevent it from potential scratching or damaging the surface and uh all three products again cleaned up pretty good, and so I I could say that a quick detailer for coated wheels could be ideal here. I want to show you real, quick.
Some Essentials that go well with rinse and washing that I think you should consider having in Your Arsenal, if you don’t have them already. The ultra black sponge is a great tool. It’S a high quality sponge. It won’t Mar or damage your surface. It’S been designed for rinses washing, and this is my go-to um watch media also in summertime when bugs are onto the vehicle.
I use this in my 256 to 1 dilution ratio. These are the Jersey bug scrubs from the rack company, and I just document the solution and I kind of scrub off safely the bugs when they’re fresh on there. I don’t even take cake on to the vehicle, so this is another great little Gadget and then I have the optimum clay towel. So this is safe for coated and non-coated vehicles. It’S a mild clay, media and uh.
This plays very well with the dilution ratio. As a clay Lube with rinser swatches – and I always have a couple of ik sprayers handy with me, because I always use uh distilled water and I dilute the appropriate ratios. So if I need it as a glass, cleaner or interior, cleaner or a drying Aid, I would dilute into my ik sprayer the proper dilution ratio with distilled water just to prevent it from any streaking, and I also use the ik sprayer as a pre-treatment.
Sometimes, during summer times, when the vehicle is lightly, soiled, just to add that extra cushion of lubrication on the vehicle surface before I proceed with a contact wash, so I highly recommend these little supporting essential products. It will play very well with your rinse.
This watch, and I think you should consider trying these out if you haven’t already so now. The big question is which product is best and there’s no definitive answer for that. I think that all products do a great job. I think all products will deliver and there’s no clear winner and uh. I have to say that I was impressed with the absolute uh for them for their first attempt and to the rinses wash formulas.
I think they did amazing. I think they stayed competitive and I have to give the edge in terms of slickness. So when it came down to the user experience, I did prefer the absolute over my keys or or an R because of the slickness. I felt it gave me a lot more confidence and I really enjoyed the washing and drying process. I think that they have something going on here and for their first attempt, I think they did a great job, but again all three products are just going to do.
Just fine, so it’s really personal preference. I recommend you trying all three of these products and see what works best for you. For me, I noticed in the past year before I was introduced to the absolute that I was always reaching out for the McKees over the onr, because I found that it had a little bit more of a cleaning ability when it came down to more soiled situations And my understanding is that my keys is not a polymer based like absolute or no rinse, it’s more of a sold my base, but I don’t have much information on that. So, having said that guys, I think all three products are going to do a great job here. I was really impressed with the absolute.
I wasn’t expecting much to be honest with you. I thought that it would be okay, but it really surprised me in terms of slickness and the cleaning abilities, so I think it’s a great product. I do recommend you trying it out I’ll, be using this for the majority of the time for the next while here, and I hope this article helped you guys out. I hope you found it useful.
