Onr vs qd

I'm very new to this still so this is possibly a very dumb question!

I'm looking for a spray on wipe off kind of product that i can use possibly a week after a full wash to keep the car looking good & so i don't have to break out all the wash gear every week.

So in my head this is what quick detail is for? am i wrong?

So i started reading up & a lot of people seem to like ONR, which is fine, seems to do the job i want & looks to have great results.

So the question is, what is the difference?

Do i need ONR & a QD?

Does the QD have more of a protection element where as ONR is just a wash?

Just trying to understand what i'm actually doing, rather than just monkey see monkey do

ONR will not strip wax.

I always dry using a QD and a drying towel in any case

A quick detailer is designed to remove finger prints and very light dust. These days they seem to be packed with more and more protection. I would not use it on a car with a weeks build up of dirt.

ONR is designed as a rinseless wash product that would allow you to clean a car that is not caked in mud or particularly grubby. If used every week its a good choice for a maintenance wash if you dont have easy access to getting a pressure washer set up.

Sonax BSD may enable that duration between washes to be extended, the less touching the paint in the long term may aid the condition, so every process needs to start with a wash.

Many try to make short cut, these techniques have been developed by guys to keep the paint protected for the most reasonable time possible.

Personally I'd say a weeks worth of dirt, even if it is just dust, is too much for a detail spray to safely deal with.

I'd go for a rinseless wash with ONR followed by a detail spray while drying.

OK so am i right in thinking that

ONR followed by a Quick Detail would be similar to

ONR followed by a spray wax?

I'm just trying to plan a really easy maintenance type "wash" that I can do quite quickly

Seems like a decent strategy. Just make sure car is not filthy beforehand otherwise you will have to properly wash.

ONR is what you want, its the safest wash style for a car that isn't super dirty, if you are not getting all the buckets etc out.
Couple that with optiseal as a drying aid/maintenance sealant, it will be the quickest you ever get round a car. The optiseal means you will finish streak free on all surfaces every time
