A bit like white goods. I don't see anywhere making significant discounts on anything.

If that sponge is £30 then it will be that every place +/- £1 or 2. No-one in particular is ripping you off except maybe Optimum. They set the starting price with their selling price.

It looks like you are going to be paying around £20 plus delivery for the bottle of ONR.

The difference in price between 32oz (US) and 1 US gallon is so large I would go for the 1 US gallon.

Go for the UBS (Ultra Black Sponge) from the rag company instead of the big red one. Much nicer to use and better foam. Clean and shiny do both, not sure if they have them in stock atm.

Defiently no to the sponge, a noodle wash mitt/pad is the way to go. The noodle mitts/pads are objectively the safest wash media. I use a £6 noodle was pad myself it cleans well, releases the dirt well and holds plenty of solution.

How is it possible to use only "a" noodle mitt or pad with respect to ONR?.
Surely you must use several or is there a method I'm not aware of?.

People use one sponge,i personally wouldn't do this

Rather interesting video by Pan the Organiser put out in relation to no wash cleaning. I'll carry on using my gear regardless as I don't think I would gain that much anyway.

When I wanted to polish my car I gave it a good shampoo wash and called it a day. The next day it looked a little dirty and this is where ONR comes into its own in my opinion. It might of rained in the night and dried.
