  1. 1:256 will be just fine for cleaning most light dirt & accumulated dust!

    How can I clean pump sprayer?

    Opti seal dried 🤔 Thats a first...Ive had a 5 year old bottle of opti seal and it worked flawlessly. Do what Ron suggested or replace the sprayer.
  3. If you have ONR at home you can use that and clean the car with it. If you dont wait too long it should hopefully remove all water spots.
  4. ONR for cleaning and Protectant plus for UV protection will be perfectly safe both for the user and the things used on (all surfaces)!
  5. you can do a ONR wash. Its safe and wont hurt the coating... ...as for brush washes....The chemicals they use wont hurt the coating (its very pH resistant) but the brushes will scratch the heck out of the paint so I dont suggest it!
  6. Opti seal is a standard practice. Its there to protect the coating while it cures over a period of a month so you are good to go. Check out this video where the entire proces that was also made for your car is very well explained.
  7. Bead maker seems to really re-juvinates coatings and makes them just better!

    Gloss coat shelf life

    Gloss coat will last a very long time (years) if sealed properly. It comes in a sealed syringe with the screw top. It reacts with moisture so if you use it make sure to remove the exxes air out before you screw the top on (check the 9min mark in the video shown bellow). More tips in this video If by any chance the product turnes into a gel form after use then its no longer usable (air wasnt released properly and the coating started reacting and solidified inside). To answer your second question...both are good. I preper opti seal because I mainly use it as a drying aid and in that regard its fantastic, but you get better water behaviour from Car wax. Durability with both is about the same (6 - 8 weeks).
  12. Yes...ceramic tub at 3:1 and you can dillute it further for tiles.

    New Gloss-Coat not beading!

    Can you share the tips?
  14. You might send me another steamer just to compare with Lowes results 😁
  15. Fair enough. As far as I know the rumor started when Yvan talked about it in one of the early Optimum synergy podcasts. I believe it was about ONR. He did say you could use 1-2ml max inside a steamer. I did try this once (put ONR in my steamer). It didn't damage the steamer but I also didn't notice any significant benefit in using it. Thanks for the notice OPTIMA STEAMER.
