ONR wash demo video

I have been asked by a few people to make a short video of how I do an ONR wash, so as I had a few extra minutes today I thought I'd try just that....

This short video shows how I like to use ONR, and is based on loads of tips and advice from much more experienced ONR users. I have included the additional step of using a pre-soak with ONR spray, which I would usually only use on much dirtier vehicles, but thought it useful to show. The car only has a week of light dirt on it, so its not meant to be a demonstration of how effective ONR is, but rather a demonstration in the steps of the process.

The tools:

1. Pump sprayer filled with ONR solution at wash strength - you can use stronger if you wish
2. Bucket with grit guard, and about 2 US gallons of ONR solution at 1oz per 2 gallons
3. Sponge - but you can use whatever wash media you feel comfortable with

So, in brief the process is:

1. Pre-soak the dirty panels with a strong ONR solution via a garden pressure sprayer etc
2. Wring out your wash media so it's still wet but not pouring out wash solution when you lift it from the bucket
3. Wash a panel or section of bodywork, using the lightest pressure and rinsing your wash media frequently to remove accumulated dirt. Continue washing and rinsing until the panel is 100% clean. You should wash an area about 1" bigger than the area you intend to dry.
4. Make a first drying pass with your first drying towel and leave the panel slightly damp and being careful to only make contact with your washed area of paintwork - your drying towel will be 100% clean as the paint was washed clean with the ONR solution.
5. Spray on your QD or spray wax and buff off with your second MF towel.
6. Move on to the next panel or section and repeat the above steps.

Having seen this now for real, and this video, its growing on me, seems much more viable than 'Waterless' washing anyway, as the principle of this is effectively the same as most peoples regular wash technique.

I can see it being worth its weight in gold for shows, and may have to order me some. Would there be a huge difference between using ONR, or just a weak dilution with minimum suds of a normal shampoo?

Regards,

Gaz

Perfect timing! I have just ordered some ONR and your video has given me a better idea on how to use it. Thanks

not sure Gaz - they key is the No Rinse. All shampoos I have used have left streaks if not well rinsed. You could mix up a bucket of this, put a lid on in the boot and do a full wash when you arrive at a show. Anything else would require a few gallons to fully rinse it as well. Glad its growing on you. I cant resist the process now, as it means NO water spotting at all despite my driveway being in full sun ALL day....

I will give it a try using a regular shampoo, as also if you are using a QD straight after, this should remove any streaks/watermarks left, will give it a try at some point this week to see if it works.

In theory, people use Shampoo as Clay Lube, and wipe away with a Microfibre, which is a very similar principal?

Which traders sell ONR stuff, seems ideal for summer months?

Were there any swirl marks at all?

Cheers

Thanks for sharing Damon, I'm just off out so will watch it later.

Looks good though. I had a go today and it's pretty impressive stuff tbh. Did my car in about 15 minutes!

Motorgeek sells it too...

NO swirls on my bonnet after using it today.

no swirls - been using it as my only wash for 6 months and on and off for a year. Gaz and others saw it in full sun the other week and its almost completely swirl free despite last being polished 18 months ago

Like any wash process it needs care and common sense. If the car is covered in debris at the start I would still rinse it off, but unless there is loads of particle stuff I never bother anymore. No getting the hose and PW out and clearing up saves ages every time, as well as water, product and huge run-off

I think I will have to invest in a bottle.

I don't think I would use it on customers cars but washing our cars is a nightmare with a 3 year old running round with the hosepipe.

Sounds really good, they are raving about on Autopia.
