As A&J has said if it needs a rinse with the pressure washer this is absolutely fine and is what I do for dirtier cars prior to washing with ONR

So blasting dirt around a car is good practice

Anyway A&J I and many others will look forward for your thread on this
Take care mate

still works just fine - usual care needed as always.

Despite the fact that many people cannot accept it, ONR contains polymers that lift dirt away from the paint and encapsulate it so t reduces the chance of marring. That means you can work on serious muck without issues. Worth looking at some of the serious salty US/Canadian cars that people post up on the Optimum social media pages.

If my car is really filthy and its not going to freeze over night, I sometimes drag out the PW and give it a simple water rinse to remove the heavy muck. I dont foam though and just hook it up to rain water tanks.

Me again lol. Been using ONR all through the summer, love it. Reverted to 2 bucket method with winter salt about but a) im hating getting all the kit out and b) i reckon ive instilled more light swirls in 2 washes without doing onr than i did all summer with it. Is there a problem with the importing this stuff into the uk at min as its out of stock everywhere

Wanted to try it as a clay lube and quick detailer.

The more i read about ONR and other waterless type washes,the more i'm keen to give it a go.
Is ONR the best product of this type or are there other comparable products that you peeps would recommend,Meguiars do one if i remember correctly?

Cheers

Optimum ONR is the most common, but there are lots of others.

Meguiars D114 only comes in gallons and is basically discontinued in the U.K. When it's gone Megs UK won't be bringing it in again.

Find the waterless/rinseless wash thread, there are lots of tests and products in there. But start with a small bottle of ONR and see if you like the technique.
