Quick question in a 2litre sprayer what ratio would you have in the sprayer of ONR and water?

thanks
I use 1 oz per 32 oz, which is roughly 30 ml per 900ml.
It seems to work for me.

ok thanks, going to try this. Bought some ONR, a nce sponge(still feels weird saying or writing that when washing a car!!) and some new MF's and a spray bottle. So will give it a go tomorrow.

Used this for the first time today. I think it took me longer than just using a jet wash to rinse then shampoo then dry and quick detailer. Maybe it's because I was a virgin and took it slow and carefully to be on the safe side

I had a similar issue as tigermad. My main concern was how much quicker it was going to be, I think it was quicker and perhaps slightly easier and more fun, really will take me a while to get use to a sponge and spraying water on my car then wiping it, i'm not 100% convinced.

perhaps a couple of questions and some pics to follow.


I used a 2litre pump sprayer for the pre wash and put a cap full of ONR in it. This managed to do the whole of the car apart from the wheels. In the bucket i used 8 litres and mixed two cap fulls in that. Once grouting sponge and used the same drying cloth as i used on my other two bucket methods, i did buy some MF's but didnt use them

Both cars really weren't that dirty anyway and are wearing wax at the mo. which brings me onto my first issue, when using the pre spray it just beaded and kind of stuck to the bodywork without running, when using more i could see some dirty run lines so it was definatley collecting the dirt, but rather than running off the car it was still on the paintwork. Perhaps i need to use more spray?
Next week when i try it timewise i reckon now im all setup and running i should be quicker. I reckon i could even clean the car in the garage next time with hardly any water used.

it was useless on brakedust, and had to resort to my usual wheel cleaner spray then bought another sponge and used the leftover water n the bucket from the car and this worked.

The water in the bucket from the car was very dirty, i left it a good 5 mins to dwell on the paintwork before touching it, i certainly need to keep telling myself that i need very fine pressure with the sponge...

car came up nice and its certainly not as messy as previous method.

just remember everything takes a little practise - I bet the first time you used the 2BM you took a lot longer than you do now!

You can ONR wash a car far faster when you get the hang of it, especially when you factor in all the time to get the kit sorted. Only need the pre-spray if the car is filthy and frankly I dont even use 2 buckets any more unless the car looks like its just been pulled from a swamp. Having used it almost constantly for years with virtual swirl free results, its worth its weight in gold!

Just practise the techniqu

Saw a "NEW" Gary Dean video - says it's his latest method - I thought he was just using the same method as we prescribe here for ONR

PLEASE correct me if I am wrong?

Who says you cant do a rinsless on a very dirty car? My wifes 20 year old Astra has been in the woods and came back muddy. As it is an old car i decided it is the perfect candidate to use ONR W&W on a muddy car.

It performed like a charm...here are some 50:50 shots





The lower part of the car was far most the worst as expected. I did rinse my sponge quite often (at least 5 times per door) and did at least 3 passes because it was to dirty to wipe dry.

Here is the end result





Rinsless wash does have its limitations however. I left 2 spots (1 on each side) as it was impossible to do it rinseless (too much mud). I will have to use a PW on these 2 spots.



P.S.

This was left in my rinse bucket





Of course i used a grit guard
