ONR - Confused - Sponge

I just picked up a BRS at WaxStock

It’s softer than the Lake Country blue one, but yes, it is just a sponge with slits in it on both sides.

It feels like a big red version of a zymol sponge,...

Amazon cloths are awful, too small, too thin. Kirkland/Costco are 10x better.

I've done the same - I use my normal amount in a snow foam bottle - so for me that's about 75ml in 1L. Each snow foam lance is different, so adjust until you get the dwell time that you want.

Ceramic coating on restored headlights?

The only one that is advertised as safe for clear plastic is Nanolex Si3D Headlight (that I know of)

Others may be suitable

Everyone takes cards; I think Nanolex didn’t have their card machine last year, or it wasn’t working, otherwise, all good.

Meguiars Ultimate Quik Wax is my go-to at the moment - can get this in Gallons (Meguiars Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax) - works really well on glass, and doesn't stain trim either.

Yes you can go up in index but not down.

They should have stiffer sidewalls, It’s unlikely you will notice any difference. Then again, you may be that person who is ultra sensitive to it.

I did the same - shouldn't have to do it, but needless to say, I won't be buying any more.


I can't imagine having 5L of this stuff and having it separate before you have a chance to use it.

You can get 5L for £13 delivered - you won't find it cheaper.

Neat it's down to -63 C, so very dilutable (as you know).

Sonax make the Vauxhall/GM screenwash; don't know who makes it for BMW.

NPT is easier to work with, does not harden as fast as PNS.
