  1. I also use both I like the fact that onr with wax gets wax into all the gaps between panels and spaces were water runs I use the foam wash mitt and squeeze it so the products run down these gaps then use the opti spray wax to dry

    First time opti seal

    Thanks I did somthing similar to that the second time but it took some time Onrww then used optimum spray wax as a drying aid then waited have hour it was only 6c outside then went over the car with opti seal nice results was looking for winter protection. But I like your idea quicker and a good layer of protection will do this at the car wash in the winter on the warmer days I like the fact that onnww gets into all the gaps around doors and windows
  3. It was 15 c today so I used my opti seal. Onr the car then dryed .then used the foam applicator it came with when it started to get grabby I used more .when I was done I used optimum spray wax. Mirror finish realy like the look . The car is gloss coated as well maybe next time will wax first Great product P

I have a few coats of spray wax and onr with wax on the car I would like to put opti sale on the car for some added protection for the winter should remove the wax or just go over top of every thing . Also what is the lowest temperature i can apply opti seal Thanks

    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
  10. I use OCW as a drying aid every wash never get any water spots maybe because of the gloss coat I am using

  14. 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
