    ONR to remove power clean (not rinsing)

    interesting topic i wanted to revisit would it be possible to use power clean at a 10:1 ratio to clean wheels and tires then use a sprayer with onr and the wheel brush dipped in ONR to finish the job and eliminate rinsing altogether? thanks!
  3. Hmm, that's interesting I've been leaving my MF towels to soak in the ONR solution x 1 week and then I remove them before my next wash (I wash weekly) and let them air out in the garage x1 week before using them again They are dry and I don't think I've had any usage issues but I'll have to pay attention to the smell the next time I do this

    BRS - Rinse with a hose.

    I kind of do it the other way around I mix 2 oz of ONR to 32 oz of water in the foam cannon and spray that all over the car first to start emulsifying and encapsulating dirt (knowing that as water starts propelling that mixture it will dilute it down even further) Then I rinse the car off using deionized water and bring it into the garage From there I start the traditional ONR process with the BRS. I find with that process that my car is never “too dirty” for ONR and I can come back to the wash process at a later time (e.g. pre soak and rinse while there is still light outside and then i can can resume washing the next day or later that night in the comfort of my garage after all the rug rats have gone to bed, allows me to break up the washing process into smaller pieces)

    BRS - Rinse with a hose.

    Same here, I put ONR in my foam cannon just to more easily pre-rinse the vehicle Then I do a 1 bucket ONR wash with the BRS I prefer it much more than the traditional two bucket car wash with soap (I get to work in my air-conditioned garage, I don't have to worry about the suds of the soap flying everywhere like I do with regular car shampoo/soap, and I dip a clean MF in the ONR solution before I get started to clean my interior too)

    ONR to remove power clean (not rinsing)

    If you want to play it safe you can use Opti clean instead I find that to be really helpful when there’s a persistent spot of tar or bug guts that onr can’t get rid of

    You can, I use the one bucket method personally but I would think dunking and wringing in a second rinse bucket would be easier than hosing off each time

    Power Clean on alloy wheels, is it safe ?

    Thanks I've had success using Power Clean both undiluted and at 1:3 on the tires and wheels. I've seen a YouTube video of Yvan using the wheel brush dipped in ONR to further aid lubricity when cleaning and that has worked very well for me too. I still rinse off when done and use 1 spray of Optiseal to the wheel when drying Is there a benefit to using Power Clean over a specific wheel cleaner? I would assume the benefit is the versatility of Power Clean to be used for multiple purposes but are there instances where a wheel cleaner would provide more benefit over Power Clean? Thanks

    Optimum Opti Seal over wax?

    Been playing around with 3 products as a drying aid after onrww wash and wanted to see what everyone’s experience has been? ive used optimum car wax, Opti seal, and bead maker over the last few months Anyone have a strong favorite? Thanks!

    I think that’s fine, I’ve seen people do that before on YouTube videos

    Minimalist Approach

    Thanks! what seems to be more popular? In looking on YouTube it seems like blue ONR and Opti seal as a drying aid is more commonly used but I would think the green onrww is more efficient? does anyone use onrww AND Opti seal as a drying aid?
  12. Really trying to approach car washing with a minimalist approach I'm cleaning a daily driver so if I can put in 20% of the work and get 80% of the results, I can live with it From watching videos online, I know that ONR doesn't require a drying aid. Are the polymers in ONR protective? Can I solely rely on those polymers to protect the paint especially if I'm going to be washing the car weekly with ONR?

    The Line between Opticlean and ONR

    Interesting, thanks for the tips I've been leaning that way anyways as I find ONR to be so much easier to use. What I've generally settled on is pre-rinsing with ONR, power washing if the car is really dirty, using ONR with the BRS, and then using Opti-Clean to spot clean particularly stubborn or dirty areas (tar, bugs, etc) Thanks again, this forum is a goldmine!

    The Line between Opticlean and ONR

    Sorry to drag up an old topic but I was curious. So the general recommendation is: 1) if the car is filthy, do a traditional 2 bucket wash with soap 2) if the car isn't too dirty, we can use ONR (I still typically presoak ONR using a foam cannon and pressure wash the car off before starting my ONR wash) 3) where does that leave Opti-clean? When is the best time to use Opti-clean? More for spot treatment? Would you actually use Opti-clean to clean an entire car?
