Are you using it out of necessity? No hose?

Yes, no access to water supply or electricity.

ONR is great if you keep on top of it and not let it get too dirty. During the winter months a quick jetwash at the local garage cleans it enough so that I feel comfortable using ONR.

Wait till you get a few ONR washes done. The paintwork becomes really slick!

I just bought 20 B&Q grout sponges which should last a few years. Cheap as chip and not heart wrenching if you drop it on the wet road.
Hello mate, do you mind posting a link to the sponge you're using?

Thanks

I use the same ones as those in the OP (Kingswood's) pictures. I have found them to be great for the job, nice and soft and strong (I'm sounding like an Andrex adv!) Hold lots of water and squeeze out to just the right amount.

Everyone seems to be using sponges with their ONR but I always thought that sponges to wash the car were a big no no or is it just with the ONR it's OK to use one?

There are sponges and sponges

Your basic cheapo car wash sponge is not suitable.

I have a pressure sprayer and spray the panel with ONR first, let it dwell a minute or so then use the sponge with enough ONR solution to bathe away the dirt and constantly rinsing in the ONR as I go.

Tried various sponges but always returned to a cheap noodle mitt. Not tried the dedicated Optimum Big Red Sponge as this is beyond my budget.
