  1. No Soap, I own a Metro master blaster.
  2. I still prefer a conventional wash but I cannot wash my car in my current community. I still cannot get myself to do a ONR wash without first rinsing. I grab my hose and quickly rinse car pull my car into garage and do a ONR wash. My question is I own an air dryer can I do a ONR wash and use my air dryer to get the ONR wash off vs drying. I like to touch the paint as least possible?
  3. Thanks again Ron, Can you use opti clean as a weekly wash (1x a week)? I know there are many factors but for a daily driver garaged every night do you think I can wash my car once a week going to local coin op and rinsing with a power washer then spraying opti clean and wiping with MF towels to finish cleaning the caronce a week?
  4. Does it help to add ONR to soap bucket when doing a convential wash with OCWC? I though I read somewhere not to do this as it eliminates soap suds?
  5. My conventional wash process now that I discovered Optimum products: I use a coin op which has compressed air to dry. 1. Before initial pressure washer rinse I use a pump sprayer to pre soak the dry-dirty car with ONR. 2. Rinse with pressure washer. 3. Use a BRS with OCWC to wash using the two buckets with grid guards. 4. Final rinse with pressure washer. 5. Dry using compressed air. 6. Use a pluffle to pat dry any remaining water. Can I use another ONR pre soak before doing the wash pass for added lubrication? Looking to replace my drying towels with EDGELESS drying towels. Any thoughts I have only found CG edgeless drying towels? Thanks!
  6. BRS

    Can I use the BRS in a traditional wash?
  7. Thanks again Bill, I am sure you know I am new to ONR and have been washing my cars the old fashioned way for about 24 years . I now live a condo where I have to do my washing inside my garage and I am having a hard time not doing a traditional wash.(feel that rinseless or waterless washing will lead to scratches, and swirls. I was thinking if I missed some dirt with BRS I could spray opti clean when drying to clean anything I missed and to lubricate finish further for the pass with the drying towel. Also our new co do has new appliances and my wife says no washing car towels full of chemicals in our brand new washer! I wash my MF towels in a bucket but feel this doesn't clean them well not to mention quite a bit of extra work which to be hones I don't have time for. Thanks
  8. How dirty

    How to determine if a car is too dirty to use opti clean?
  9. I am new to ONR and was wondering to protect the finish can I use Opti clean as a drying aid to an ONR wash?
  10. It's probably unnecessary , can I use opti clean as a drying aid to an ONR wash?
  11. Thank you guys for clarifying. How does OC differ from ONR? Same concept just more polymers to encapsukare dirt and protect paint in abscense of water?
  12. Preparing to do my second ONR wash this weekend but I am still terrified. I am old school, I have been washing my cars with a wash mitt and drying with a S.M. Arnold synthetic chamios for over 20 years. After doing research I was hoping you guys could enlighten me. I have learned that ONR and BRS are used to just coat the panel with ONR then you come with your drying towel to pick up encapsulated dirt that was left behind as well as drying. I am not of fan of seeing a bunch of dirt on my MF drying towels. If I give a second pass with the other side of BRS might this pick up dirt left behind with the first pass? Second I use to read everywhere not to use a sponge due it traps dirt and you could drag it across the paint, what has changed the technoloigy such as the polymers in ONR? Lastly so much talk about edgeless MF towels to protect finish from edge scratching so why are drying MF towels not edgeless? Thank again
  13. Can I clean my BRS and store it dry? Do I really need to store in a bucket with ONR at all times it's not in use?
  14. Thank you to everybody for posting great advise. I did my first ONR wash Saturday, it was scary I am so use to washing the car the old fashion way but After first ONR wash I have to say it was imoressive. I used MF Towels which left me with a bunch of towels to clean and my technique is not good yet towels are difficult to keep in folded square. I will use BRS next. I understand how ONR has properties to protect the finish but what happen to the belief that sponges scratch due to the fact they dont have nap to trap dirt and debris? Any thoughts on best way to ONR wheels? Does anyone have stains on garage floor from ONR washing or ONR $& OC presoaks? Thanks
