Pretty much the gold standard (maybe the only standard). Anyway, I am pretty sure no one makes a product designed to be used immediately after you wash a rope, but you can apply this stuff anytime you want. However, dry treatments are kind of a gimmick, their lifespan is compete crap. Even the most advanced dry treated ropes will soak up water like a sponge within a few weeks of heavy use. Most "dry" ropes only stay dry for a rather limited portion of their life.
