    Detailing Efficiency Experiments

    To listen to some British guy talking about detailing efficiency on the Synergy Podcast. Or perhaps I should say 'to listen to me talking about detailing efficiency'. https://optimumsynergypodcast.libsyn.com/lean-processing-next-level-efficiency

    Do you have water spots on the car? If not then no need to use MDR. Keep it simple and this is what I would do 1. Ferrex. If the paint is not that dirty you can use that over the dry surface to not dilute the product with water. If it is too dirty wash and dry first then use Ferrex. 2. Rinse the Ferrex from the surface and proceed with your normal wash 3. Clay 4. Paint prep if you want to take an additional step after claying to remove any clay lube residue. No need for an additional wash. 5. Polish 6. Protect 7. Maintain

    Power Clean will not remove Gloss-Coat, you are safe to use it on wheels, etc. Power Clean WILL strip wax, sealant, tar, etc.

    Gunner, you're right, we're hesitant to suggest durability due to variables. I would guess you'll make it until the new year with Hyper Seal.

    Detailing Efficiency Experiments

    Great podcast...Ive just listened to it...I havent listened to the podcast in a while now and I really enjoyed yours. I dont know if I will call you Steven from now on or Leanjackson Detail Groove was a good shoutout...he talks a lot about organization and custumer care and custumer expectations. Its always interesting to look at his videos. You can learn a lot from his as well as from Darren Priest from a business point of view and efficiency at work. Yes Im from Europe (Slovenia to be exact)...I dare you to find it on a map without using google . I still use the black waffle sponge. Not from serious performance but from a local supplier (Im guessing its the same or a very similar sponge). I actually use 2 of them in my bucket now...one for the initial pass and the other for the second pass before a spritz of opti-seal to help me dry a panel or two at a time. Ive used noodle mitts and MF towels in the past...they work OK but the mitt gets very dirty really fast and therefore I dont like using it often and the MF towels (using the Garry Dean method) is fine on its own and may be the safest aproach but you really need quite a lot of towels which can be expensive and you have to wash them afterwards and I try to avoid that as much as I can. Sometime soon Ill probably buy&try the Flexipads blue waffle sponge (similar to the OPT blue waffle sponge IMO) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Flexipads-Professional-Grade-Waffle-Sponge/dp/B01EVTZO5Q or the Soft 99 egg sponge which is very soft to the touch https://www.amazon.co.uk/SOFT99-516-Smooth-Creamy-Soft-Sponge-Pieces/dp/B00BUFE7HG Both are IMO good options for rinseless washing.

    How to remove Opti Seal?

    A thorough APC wash (Power Clean is excellent) should remove Opti-Seal.

    Opti-Bond contains no petroleum distillates which are known to crack rubber and vinyl. It contains advanced UV and ozone protectants to shield surfaces from sun damage and environmental pollution. Rubber and vinyl surfaces will remain supple, flexible and retain their color with regular use of Opti-Bond.
