How much ONR do you use? Is a 2l one big enough? I have a mk5 zetec s fiesta

Do you just spray on, wipe off?
Yeah perfect, a good soak then wipe and do again if still dirty.
Try a cap full of ONR, see how it goes and adjust to suit.

I bought a bottle of the waterless Meguiar's cleaner on Sunday, partly to combat the impending hosepipe ban but also so I can clean the car when I drive up to the French Car Show in June, as I doubt there will be any water on hand.

I'll report back once I've had a chance to try it.

When i spoke to Meguiars UK about it, the said they are refusing to produce it in the UK, but speaking them and Megs in Australia, they confirmed it was pretty much based about Last Touch.....

Other alternatives are:

Dodo Juice Basic of Bling detail spray
Chemical Guys Ecosmart RU
Autogylm do one as well.....

plus the others you see on shoppin channels....

I have used Dodo Juice Time to Dry as a waterless (loose used term as there is water in the product) wash and have a video, i was using it for test purposes....and i have used Chemical Guys RU, still use Chemical Guys one for cleaning....have a look at the following vids for an insight, but as a say the DJ one was testing as i knew it can be used for that, just an expensive option....

I am very confused and surprised by this statement.

When I visited Meguiar's UK HQ three weeks ago, they were raving about the Anywhere product and how good it was, not to mention the potential for sales if a hosepipe ban was called (which it subsequently was), nothing they said suggested they were cold-shouldering it, let along refusing to manufacture it in the UK.

Yes, the stock they are currently shipping to distributors (and that I have purchased) is manufactured in the US, but that is more likely due to them wanting to gauge the size of the market for it before committing investment to a UK production and bottling run.

It was last year I spoke them, so maybe they have changed their minds since then
