Latest video from Jon at the Forensic Detailing Channel on YT "Clean Your Car In Five Minutes" using ONR and the Big Red Sponge.

pretty basic question ... if using the sponge and bucket ... do you use a second bucket to rinse the sponge after each panel etc ?

I do it slightly differently. I first spray the car with ONR, usually one area at a time, let it dwell a couple of minutes then, with a decent mitt soaked in a bucket of ONR wipe the panels off.

Finally drying with a Purple Monster towel and then OPT Car Wax. Recently been trying the Sonax BSD mixed with Hybrid V07 as a drying and finishing step, slightly harder to buff off but results in a slightly better gloss.

Yeah but what do you do with the dirty mitt?

All fine and dandy but you end up with a dirty bucket half way through meaning you are cleaning your car with dirty water especially in winter time. I know the OPT way but and the one bucket theory (that ONR will sink the heavier dirt) but even I can think outside the box and Im not really comfortable doing it like that on a dirty car.

Of course each to his own I guess. Im not dissing the one bucket technique...Ill even use it on a lightly dusty car here and there but not on a dirty one.

Been washing with ONR for a couple of months now as have always been pleased with the results. Last night I swapped the sponges for a noodle mitt, which felt much nicer to use and looked to pick up more from the surface than the spongers were, and filled up a pump sprayer with ONR as a presoak which felt much safer on the paint as it was already lubricated.

I have to say I'm very impressed with ONR and will be using for some time to come.

I'll be trying ONR for the first time this week. Probably use an mf mitt and two buskets. What dilution of ONR are you spraying on the panels?
