Richard's Top 3
Rinseless Washing Tips


The two-towel technique. Use one towel for removing dirt and the majority of the liquid and a second for buffing the surface completely dry. Long-nap microfiber towels like our Microfiber Plush Edgeless Towel are great for the initial wipe and PFM® are best for drying.


Straight lines. Whenever you are wiping a dirty surface, always use straight line passes in one direction. To avoid scratching do not wipe back and forth until all the dirt has been removed from the surface. It is also important to avoid using pressure. When drying it is okay to wipe back and forth since the surface is clean.


Get ahead of the game. Pre-soaking heavily soiled surfaces with a 15:1 dilution of Rinseless Wash & Wax in the dilution spray bottle will maximize the effectiveness of your rinseless washing process. The additional water used in this process helps to flush the surface more effectively than a standard waterless wash method.
