Got my 16 oz of rinseless in the mail the other day and immediately diluted it into my old waterless bottle. All I can say is wow! It is a great alternative to waterless for those looking to save a few bucks

I agree. It's a super-versatile product.

Do rinseless and waterless work more or less the same, or do you see a difference between the two. I currently own waterless wash, and have considered purchasing rinseless, however if when diluted the rinseless is the same as the waterless is there any reason to purchase it?

I would buy the Rinseless Wash, the Rinseless Wash is made to remove more heavy stuff that doesn't quite need a 2 bucket wash. The Waterless Wash is made to remove light dust and that type off stuff with a quick wipe down.

I haven't seen very different performance in the Waterless Wash compared to the rinseless 16:1, well besides the smell! Both are awesome! And being that if you have Rinseless Wash you can dilute it to Waterless Wash or do a Rinseless Wash, that would be the best deal, plus Waterless Wash is a lot cheaper to dilute then buying the Waterless Wash.

To clarify, diluted Rinseless Wash and Waterless Wash are not exactly the same (different formulas), but they are very similar.

They're both meant to provide alternate ways to wash a car without pulling out all the stops, for whatever reason you don't want to or can't do. Waterless Wash is just that...you can clean a car that has light dust or dirt, fingerprints, etc., with just the bottle of product and some Waterless Wash towels - no water needed. Rinseless Wash is meant for dirtier cars (not caked on stuff, though), but you'll need a couple ounces of product, a bucket of water, and several Double Soft Towel (preferred). I want to say the Rinseless Wash has more shine enhancing properties than Waterless Wash, but I'll need someone else to chime in to clarify. Diluting the Rinseless Wash provides a more economical approach than does the Waterless Wash. As for the scent, I prefer the Waterless Wash quite a bit more.

Bottom line, I'd recommend you buy a bottle of Rinseless Wash, try it out, and decide for yourself if both should be in your arsenal. Adam's offers a 110% guarantee, so you don't have anything to lose. For me, I like having them both.

 

Edit: changed Waterless Wash to Rinseless Wash in the last paragraph - reread your post and realized you already have the Waterless Wash! Oops.  :wacko:

Chris pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one.

 

Rinseless wash does indeed seem to leave a slightly better shine once you are done using it vs waterless wash. Diluted rinseless 16:1 or 8:1 is definitely more economical vs Waterless, especially if you are like me and need to really cover the paint with the product. Waterless wash does indeed smell much better, I am a huge fan of the smell. 

 

I have noticed that where waterless wash does seem to perform better than rinseless diluted to Waterless Wash concentration is in paint slickness. I feel that diluted Rinseless does not leave quite as slick of a surface as Waterless.  It isn't a huge difference or something to be concerned with but I have observed that as of late.
