What dilution ratio were you using in the pressure sprayer?
thanks Russ - I mix 2-3 capfuls of the 32oz bottle into about 1.25L, so about 2 or 3 times a strong solution. Some use normal strength and some like the much stronger QD strength mix though.

Good stuff BP Whilst on Alex's site I ordered some Quick Easy Wash to give it a try, unless I've missed something, it seems to be the same sort of stuff and a few reviews on Autopia were promising, so I went for it. The van is swirltastic anyway, it's the convenience aspect that appeals to me, although I don't want to add to the swirls if I can avoid it obviously. Lack of run off is a bonus for the drains, and my feet as well. Not used it yet, but I'll post up my findings when I do.

I have some QEW and have used it a lot Mick. Its good stuff but I dont think its quite as good as the latest version of ONR - it doesnt seem to leave quite as good finish and you need a lot more of the stuff in the wash solution, but at the price Alex is clearing it out at, it makes a decent buy IMHO. I have used QEW for lots of maintenance washes on other peoples cars

Thanks for this very interesting post, just one question if i may, is it necessary to dry each panel after washing or can you go round the whole car washing then go round and dry?

Great video and demonstration. Damon.
Hope this help people and highlight the benefits of using ONR.
Terrific product in so many ways, cost effectiveness, volume of product used but most importantly is the volume of water used to clean the car. With no run off.

I have as you know been using it also for a while. Not for water spotting as this is not an issue up here. Due to the soft water. But ease of use and time spent washing and drying. Glad to see you have taken it to the next leave, in applying a protection at the same time. I am surmising that was OCW??

But thanks for taking the time and sharing a well put together video.
Gordon.

not at all, but its one of the advantages and the reason I tried it first of all. In colder weather I have done half a car and then gone back to dry.
