  1. UV protection?

    Was wondering if OC included UV protection? Also the detail spray? Thanks
  2. Interior cleaning.

    Opticlean is my favorite as an interior detailer.
  3. Try ONRWW at 16:1 as a drying aid. Loving it so far.
  4. Thanks, Ron. I'll keep playing with this on various surfaces.
  5. If worried about dirt get a $6 pump sprayer and presoak a panel before hitting it with the BRS. This increases lubricity greatly. Could use ONRWW at the standard dilution as a drying aid if needed, but ONR is it's own drying aid.
  6. I've started using OPC for washing microfiber and am so far very impressed!
  7. The product I have phase separates very quickly. Is this normal? Also seems to be hard on sprayers if not used for a while. This product cleans plastic very well. Would the protective properties stick to hard surfaces?
  8. Does Optiseal contain UV inhibitor similar to OCW?
  9. Hey Dr. G!

    Surfactants that won't attack minerals in hard water, but still attach to dirt. Should be very useful.
  10. Gloss Enhancers?

    I like to know what I'm dealing with. One guy on AG posted about a coating not behaving like it should and it was because a soap left behind residue. A cleaning with D114 took care of this and restored the coating behavior. It's nice to know what to expect from a product.
  11. Gloss Enhancers?

    I've used Meg's Gold Class soap in the past for various things and it will alter water behavior on the surface of a panel. Tends to sheet and make the water go "flat". Supposed to help with rinsing and water spots. Not sure if that is the same chemical as a "gloss enhancer" or not. I'm not a chemist, but I've researched lubricants fairly heavily. I'm used to technical jargon.
  12. Gloss Enhancers?

    Thanks, Ron. I've been researching and couldn't find an answer to this. Hate to use the word residue but couldn't think of anything else.
  13. Gloss Enhancers?

    Does OCWC leave enhancers or other types of "residue" behind? Or is it designed to wash cleanly away? Thanks.

    Wow! Very nice work!
  15. ONR and Wheels

    The question I have is what to do about drying the barrels? Drying and cleaning seem to go hand in hand with ONR, so what, if anything, is everyone doing to get ONR out of the barrels? More or less, I use this method with ONR, but there is no way shown to mop up behind the spokes. (Just so happens to be the exact same rims that I have). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ-8YfZ_Jhg
