256 to one is the specified rate and an American gallon is 7.68 ltr's, so two capfuls in that much water.

Ive just ordered some after watching the various you tube vids but I still have two questions;

1) whats the limit of what ONR will wash? ie big lump of bird poo?
2) How do you clean the under arches, insides of wheel rims? (ive got 20" wheels with big open spokes so the insides are clearly visible and need cleaning each time)

1) For large amounts just spray the area first to lift up the poop. You could then either use a cloth to remove it or just wash with your mitt. If the poop has fully dried on, place a soaked ONR cloth over the area and leave it for a few minutes.

2) Just spray the area and wash as you would with a normal shampoo. Just be realistic with your expectations, ONR will not replace a dedicated wheel cleaner but as with a traditional shampoo it will remove light dirt and can be used with normal wheel brushes

I've just come in after having completed my 1st ONR wash, oh and my 2nd and 3rd! I bought the stuff to use when I go to a show and thought I'd give it a try on my daily so I had a good idea of what I was doing. On my daily (which was pretty clean) it was excellent. My neighbour came out to see what I was using and so we did his car which hadn't been washed in 2 months. His car came up much better than I expected but not as good as I'd have done if I had all my kit out and cracking on with a full wash. In all honesty I think that's because I'd have got the wheels done inside the barrels, a proper jet wash in the seams with all my kit which his car definitely would benefit from but none the less it was a good standard, quick wash. Just as we were finishing my Mrs came home and asked me to do hers so, myself, assisted by my neighbour, cracked on and got her car done. It hadn't been done in a couple of weeks and it too came up well. I'm really impressed. Am I going to get rid of my 2 bucket method and pressure washer, no, however I feel it has a place in my detailing arsenal. I'll certainly be using it again.

I've got some ONR on order which should be here hopefully tomorrow. My car is mainly dusty with the exception of the front end/ windscreen which is covered it dead flies. Whats the best way to deal with this? Will ONR shift them?

I use the normal 125 to 1 ratio and spray it on the dead flies and bugs, leave it on for a couple of minutes and they all seem to lift off pretty easily. I do spray the area again just to make sure I've got all the remnants too.

Any issues or considerations using this on a ceramic coated vehicle?

I use it on Gtech CS and Exo coated cars.

Nope in cleaning terms, but yes insofar as ONR lays down a later of residual polymers. These don't stick long to any decent ceramic, and are easily removed with yer QD. Next proper 2BM will flush then away, although that's not the onr point.

Great, thanks. Just thinking with this bonkers weather I might have to do a waterless or very small amount of water wash in the near future. Next 2BM wash 'resetting' things is perfect.
