Opti-Clean dilution ratios?

Recommended Posts

Good day,

 

I heard Chris mention on another forum that Opti-Clean could possibly be used at a 2oz/1qt ratio (1:16, same as ONR at QD strength) as a spray and wipe product. I was just wondering if I read that correctly and what other ratios members here have tried?

 

My own experiences with the 1:3 ratio were that it got a little too streaky and didnt wipe down that cleanly (probably due to the waxes/sealants on my paint). I was thinking of trying a 1:7 ratio (half strength) and see how that works out... any thoughts?

Hi!

Old thread I thought I could hijack. Which task would you recommend using which dilution ratios?

  1. Pre-spray for ONR wash.
  2. OOC wash with microfiber towles.
  3. Interior cleaning.

Please add more to the list!

Would you ever use it neat if you also got Power Clean, or another APC? The OOC spray bottle contains neat solution, doesn't it?

Well you got the concentrated version and you got the ready-to-use version which is basically diluted 1:3 compared to the concentrate. I dont think it makes a difference if you use it neat.

I also wouldnt use it to clean MF towels.

There was a thread around 2011-2012 where Dr. G stated 1:4 was a good multipurpose dilution for OptiClean, so I've been using it at that ratio ever since.

It works well for all your purposes, including pre-spray for an ONR wash, waterless exterior cleaning and all non-cloth interior surfaces, including leather and Nav screens. I carry a small spray bottle in my console and clean my tan leather steering wheel and shift knob regularly if I'm in a traffic jam.
