Brian, Yvan covered this at waxstock live on stage. He recommends if you use the 2 bucket method with ONR, then you should put ONR in the rinse bucket Aswell. He also said that people need to evaluate the condition of their car, if you would pre wash your car whilst using a standard 2 bucket wash, then you should pre wash whilst using ONR Aswell. He advised pre spraying the car with ONR and pressure washing off prior to contact. My opinion is its a no rinse shampoo and should be used as such

Excuse my ignorance, but if you're going to be using a pressure washer then why would you be using ONR...??

Well that is upto the user to decide, your still using less water, it would be over 20ltrs less for me, with the 2nd bucket and a final rinse.Over 20ltrs that havent been 'wasted'. The whole of detailing is just opinions.some will say ONR is safer and more lubricated than a standard shampoo. Like I said, this is what Yvan stated.

Resurrecting this, but used ONR for the 1st time yesterday on my motorbike. Superb results. Quick prewash rinse with BH AF at 4% on lower half. 2 bucket method with ONR in both, soft wash mit and deionised water (super hard water here and loads of black plastic on the bike). Quick prespray with ONR at 1:16, wipe with noodle mit, dry with drying towel. Looks like a great, clean, swirl free result.

I think this, minus the deionised water, will also be my new method for the car now as well. Saves at least one power rinse down.....

Any thoughts or observations from those using ONR?

Cheers.

The pre wash needs to be a stronger mix. I use 30ml of ONR to make 1ltr of solution. Spray on and leave to dwell for a minute or two before washing with mix the bucket, 30ml to make 5ltr solution, 60 for 10, etc.

The Gary Dean method looks to be the best approach as you never put dirt back into the wash mix. For other results use a grouting sponge or the big red overpriced sponge.
Exactly this method ^^
