Can you add ONR to soap bucket?

Recommended Posts

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?

Yes it does slowly kill suds but add lubricity and cleaning power. Like Guz noted it also works as a water softener.

Would it be better to put it in your rinse bucket when doing  traditional two bucket wash

If you ever listened to Yvan Lacroix or if you had seen some of his videos he always says its better to put ONR into both buckets (if you are using the 2 bucket method) because the ONR in the rinse bucket will drag dirt to the bottom of the bucket.

So yes it is a good idea to do so. I normally put a capfull of ONR in the rinse bucket regardless of how much water I put inside.

I put the same wash level dilution in both buckets. I've got plenty of ONR and still loving it! Of course one has to remember that ONR is a safe way to wash and clean almost anything so it cannot have the "bite" to clean everything. If the situation demand, you have to use other cleaners (like power clean etc.).

I steal this thread a little bit, do Optimum have a relatively safe tar-remover like Auto Finesse Citrus Power, which I find is the best product against the "salt" (read tar from the road surface lifted by the wintertires) in the winter? There are many tar-removers that work, but few of them are safe in any way if you try to keep the maintaine the LSP as long as you can. Of course with Opti-Seal (it so simple!) you don't have to care about LSP longevity in the winter, but it is nice to learn about different processes.

OPT say Ferrex has a dual purpose. Not only does it remove iron contaminants but it can also remove tar spots although some testers who used it say its too weak to remove stubborn tar spots resolving them to use harsher chemicals.
