Heavy dirt pre-wash product?

4 posts in this topic

Which kind of a wash procedure would you recommend when you have heavy dirt, especially in the winter (snow, roadsalt), on the car? Is the only solution, go to a quick-wask and only choose the quick rinse program? What would be the Optimum way? Now I occasionally use Bilt Hamber Auto Foam using a foam-gun to pre-wash my car. Would think that a version of ONR that would be wetter and heavier could be working but there is no such a product and maybe never will be, maybe because it would be against the philosophy of Optimum car products?

Mix Power clean at 1:3 - 1:5 and wait 2-3 min...Power rinse it off and continue with your ordinary  ONR wash if you can. Use Opti seal as a drying aid so the car gets protected.

Ok, thanks! That's what I do when not "rinsing" with pump sprayer and ONR, e.g. use APC (all purpose cleaner) dilluted to save some wax and wait 1-2 min and then bombard it with foam and then power rinse.

I usually do this too if I cant hand wash it afterwards. This January was way too cold for any hand washing but I did visit a self service coin-op. I sprayed a Citrus based APC mixed 1:15 on the car, waited a few min and PW rinsed it off. The car was like night and day.  Most of the salt and muck was removed which I was satisfied with at the moment.  

 

Your way of doing it sounds as good as any.  As long as it works for you.
