I have been experimenting for some time to find a way to use ONR as a detailer that I actually liked as much or more than many of the commercial QD products available. I used the typical recommended mixture of 1 OZ onr to 16 oz of distilled water (and various other mixture ratios) but I wasn't happy with the results. Didn't feel slippery and lubricated when I wiped off with a microfiber cloth and not much shine to write home about either. I have to say I have some of the OQD but I don't really like it that much.
Here is how I make the stuff now:
I use an empty ONR bottle 32 oz size with a sprayer from an old QD bottle.
I put in 2 oz of ONR.
I put in 1/8 oz of optimum car wax.
I fill the rest to the top with distilled water.
This little bit of added car wax changes the entire process. Slick to wipe on and just a quick second wipe and its gone. Shine is great and it is smooth to the touch.
I'm sure other people have discovered this before, but if you haven't give it a try as it really works for me.
