I water a shrub or two, depending on how much I have left over. Personally, I always mix up a fresh batch for each wash.

It's very good on tar. I've used it on the inside on my wheels a while back. Actually made a good clay lubricant too although I'm pretty sure it did start to dissolve it to some extent. You will...

Hopefully, this was tongue-in-cheek.

Gloves 100% of the time. Glasses when spraying chemicals, or I'm likely to get splatter (e.g. cleaning wheels with a brush). Not used a mask yet, but would...

However as ONR is a rinse less wash, and not a...
