Question ONR's Arrived

Hi All

Well I'm about to try the ONR route with the potential of a hose pipe ban and in this current weather the car is hardly dirty just dusty i'm enquiring as to a good starting point for dilution rates

My water hardness/softness stands at 180ppm

For a prespray is 30ml per ltr and 30ml for 9ltr of wash solution correct, just doesn't seem the correct dilution 30ml for 1lt and 9ltr?

Also how much would be appropriate for a wash solution for a large saloon car as I don't fancy having a bucket of unused solution hanging around.

Cheers

Bruce

There is a thread somewhere with the dilutions, I've washed my car with ONR for the first time in almost a year, I've got the 32oz bottle and I have used 4 capfuls, around 2oz to around 4 gallon of water, this seems to have worked well for me and I filled my spray bottle from the bucket so had the same dilution

Yes. think it's this thread

Unless I'm reading it wrong that's where I arrived at my dilution ratios, it makes more sense that the dilution would be the same for the prespray as the wash solution and not stronger.

I make up two US gallons and use a grit guard. That's enough to wash an SUV and the level is still above the grit guard.
I leave the solution in the bucket afterwards and pull a plastic bag over it to stop evaporation, next time out I just top it up with one US gallon of solution.

Make up a new batch usually after three washes.

Just no way I want to lug two buckets about

Yes never understand why the US have never adopted the Ml and Ltrs, it makes much more sense, as does the metric mm and metres, i've never got to grips with kilograms and Kilos though, still a pounds and stones man.

I just fill up my spray bottle from the bucket with diluted ONR. For those working in the sun, if the solution dries on the paint, simply re-wet it to remove the dried polymer spots. If it is very hot, just wash and dry each panel as you go
