Safety on household vinyl products.

Recommended Posts

So the weather cleared up a bit, this gave me a chance to try out
Protectant Plus[PP] on the vinyl window frames and ONR at 1:128 on the
window glass.

Dusted off the dust on the frames with a fine detailing brush. Liberally
sprayed PP on to a microfiber towel. Carefully applying PP on the vinyl
window frame, as to not get much on the glass. The little of PP that did
get on the glass, cleaned up easily with ONR.

PP cleaned up the vinyl window frames well, restored the white color; a
very nice bright white color and left a very nice satin finish. Never
having a greasy feel to the touch. The vinyl widow frames looked great,
like new :)

Sprayed ONR on to a microfiber towel, about 5 shots. Using the box
method to clean the glass, then using the dry side of the microfiber
towel to remove any remaining ONR, so we leave a streak free glass.

ONR did a good job of cleaning the glass. Easy to apply and take off
with the microfiber towel; without any streaking.

ONR Wash & Shine worked really well, will try ONR Wash & Wax[ONRWW]
next. Since ONRWW would add a bit of wax protection.

What about using Optimum Car Wax[OCW} instead of PP on the vinyl window
frames? Does OCW leave a glossy shine? Considering OCW over PP, since it
would protect better than PP? Though really liked the satin finish that
PP left on the vinyl window frames.

What would be the recommended product when needing something stronger
for cleaning? Have read that Opti-Clean and Optimum Power Clean are what
most use for tougher cleaning.

What is the shelf life of most Optimum products? Have read here that for
the ONR's is about 3 to 4 years with the cap on in any weather
condition. Like stored in a shed with no ventilation. Is this correct?

Thank You

curious if you're considering using any Optimum products on a car?   Using Spray Wax on vinyl would provide UV protection and shine, but it has no cleaning ability.  For cleaning, Power Clean is our most powerful all purpose cleaner and Opti-Clean is stronger than ONR. 

Shelf life on compounds/polishes is 1 - 2 years.  Cleaning products have pretty indefinite shelf life regardless of conditions.

Yes.

Will stick to PP then for it's cleaning properties, since they both would provide the same

UV protection.

 

After reading about Opti-Seal[OS] and seeing a few videos about it.  Considering using

OS on the glass. Can OS be applied over PP? Will this affect PP in any way? Since will

most likely get some OS on the vinyl window  frames when applying OS.

Thank You

Opti-Seal is great on glass.  I don't think it will cause any problems on PP, but have never heard of anyone testing it.

Will try this out at some point then and report back.

Have read that Opti-Clean[OC] is normally used before ONR. Can OC be
used as replacement for ONR? Using OC should not affect PP, OS or any
other Optimum product?

Thank You

Opti-Clean can be used as a pre-spray or as an waterless alternative to ONR.  Opti-Clean will not remove or effect other Optimum products.

I use Opti-Clean mainly as a pre-spray in the wintertime on the car, inside the car and various use inside our house.

Alright. So some of differences between ONR Wash & Wax[ONRWW] and
Opti-Clean[OC] are:

ONRWW, is more economical, has a bit of wax, UV protection and ?

OC is a stronger cleaner, is a waterless wash and ?

Fill in the question marks above, since I probably missed something.

Which would provide more protection, ONRWW or OC?

Thank You

The major difference is ONRWW is rinseless and Opti-Clean is waterless, you don't need to over think it.  ONRWW has more protection because is has Wax...

That is what I thought, but wanted confirmation.
