    Nice day in Toronto 8 degrees So I did a nice car wash today and used onr with wax first time of courses I have to use it in my own way Rinse car Foam gun with soap ( just love using this thing) Wash with My one bucket wash method (6 washmits in soapy water when one gets dirty grab a clean one ) Rinse car Then get clean wash mitt with bucket of onr with wax wash panal then dry with waffle weave towel I guess like super drying aid . It sound like extra time but just grabbing a new wash Mitt instead of going to rinse bucket is a little quicker can't understand why you want to put your wash mitt in dirty water that's just me Very nice shine The best thing is that nobody has talked about is the fact that this liquid wax is running in all the gaps and openings covering with wax great protection will use this every third wash great for door jams wax getting every were Then I went fishing next day muddy roads car covered in mud lol Took a hose and washed of mud nice beading and washed lower part of car with onr For sure the durability of spray wax is better but they both have there uses the car is gloss coated as well Thanks love opti products
  2. I use OCW as a drying aid every wash never get any water spots maybe because of the gloss coat I am using

  6. My new system of washing car is Rinse car garden hose Use Foam gun with otimum car soap let sit on car if not sunny Fill bucket with couple of gallons of water with two ounces of onr another with water Use wash mitt and dip in onr wash a panal ring out wash mitt Realy a two bucket wash then rinse car and dry with Opti spray wax there is no way you can scratch car I wash my car every week so realy the same amount of dirt One observation is that there is more dirt on my wash mitt when I rinse it then with the soap method??? And the car is very glossy and clean more money yes More water yes but wow

    ONR on polisher pad

    Instead of buying a pad washer just use the money to buy more pads use three or four when rhere dirty put them in some ONR then stop polishing and clean them and start again what do you think?
  12. Maybe I am turning to the dark side Rinsed my car Then put onr in the foam cannon and soaked car then two bucket wash with soap kills the suds a bit but man the car was clean car is gloss coated
