Can the ECH20 be used on the interior (leather, plastic, fabric etc) as ONR can. There is no reason why it should but I am simply curious.

On (coated) leather and plastic it works well as a quick cleaner. On fabric it works well on light stains and emergency cleaning which is how I have used it many times. It obviously has limitations on carpet and fabric yet it will clean light stains. What is nice about ONR on material is it will not build up, clog or need rinsing.

ONR works well with a wet/vac and is (officially) safe in a steamer, as an aside the dedicated fabric/carpet cleaner is also safe in a steamer.

I initially thought ONR would add some gloss to the interior but it does not, the key is to use a short or relatively short nap MF cloth. Obviously it cannot compete against an APC and will not remove heavy dirt but will remove light oils and general dirt.

It would be fantastic if other products such as the CarPro could be as versatile or perhaps it can do things which ONR cannot do although maybe it is just a damn good exterior cleaner

I have given my leather and plastics the once over with Ech2o - no problems using it as a quick interior detailer.

(Basically, with my now damp extra plush towel that I used to QD the exterior and door shuts, I flipped to a clean side, sprayed it moist, and gave the interior a wipe down.)

It leaves nothing behind at all; no darkening of the plastics, and no sheen on the seats. But I found it very useful to dust down the entire interior before I followed up with a proper quick interior detailer (either Meguiars or Sonax at the moment).

Haven't tried it on cloth - I assume it would act exactly the same as ONR; I've never used ONR in that way so far.

Does Ech20 leaves any streaks to glasses?

Is there any benefit to buy both: Ech20 and ONR?

No streaks on glass but I used a fresh towel. To be honest I don't use anything other than glass cleaner any more.

Ech2o can be used waterless and rinseless; ONR is only supposed to be used rinseless. You of course can try whatever you want. I would say that Ech2o is a better QD than ONR at QD dilution ratio if you want to use it that way.

Has anyone tried this with a sponge? I use onr with a smooth egg sponge wondering if this will be similar- I don't see why not, want to give it a try
