Do you just put it into a pump sprayer?

Yes but most important your wash bucket. You put 15ml in 1l pump sprayer to pre-wash and a 1:256 mix into your wash bucket or 15-30ml to 1 or 2 gallons of water.

Spray on the pre wash to 1 panel, wait about 15-30s and wash with a wet but dripping wet sponge or mitt in straight lines. Dry the section with a microfiber towel afterwards. Move to a new section until you have completed the car.

Better to just use it as you would with a traditional shampoo i.e. in a bucket. Many will spray some ONR on the paint before washing including me. These days there seems to be quite a few alternative products to ONR so buy the one you fancy. Below is a video which gives a description of ONR and demonstration on how to use it

Can you not plumb in an outside tap? I've just done one, 30 min job and needed a £15 quid kit from b&q

I use Adams waterless wash in between washes and have never had a problem with it. Although I would never use it on the car if it looked dirty, tend to just give it a wipe if there's dust or water marks from the rain etc. If I didn't have a tap I would either do it the old fashioned way or pop down to the local jet wash.

Did this tonight with Adams waterless wash

Tried a few waterless over the years in between washes and lately I'm using and loving chemical guys ecosmart concentrated. It works out to be like £2.50 per litre if you get the concentrated version so it's quite good value for money in my opinion. The pic shows the amount I used from a brand new bottle to make 1L. It has a bit of carnauba wax in it and gives the car a nice shine (sorry about the side shot!)
