Suffice to say, there was very, very little marring ended up being inflicted on my car. Further to that, I ended up washing the car every week because I could have the whole thing done in 20 minutes. It took me longer to wash the wheels properly (I still used Bilberry and poured a bucket over them to rinse them) than it did to clean the rest of the car.

As already said, pre-spray from a bottle, a good noodle mitt, and a nice soft drying towel are essential.

Now that I have access to a PW again, I STILL use ONR regularly, it's my go to spray for use with clay bars, and even after a 2BM wash I sometimes spray ONR over the car to aid with drying. It always seems to make the car come out better, with far fewer water spots.

I honestly think it's one of the best products on the market.
As I said in a previous thread, I don't have access to water or electric as I have an allocated plot in our private car park and it's some way away from the house.
Having discovered ONR it's been a godsend and being elderly it takes so much effort out of the process of cleaning the car which I love.

All that said I do go to my daughters and use their drive twice a year to do the necessary detailing where I can access all services.

Just wondering if I could put this out there for comments. I am new to ONR but have used it 4 times now and I'm a definite convert. I'm lucky in that my low mileage means heavy accumulations of dirt are a rarity.

That said, another of my favourite products is Autoglym Aqua Wax which I used regularly - in fact I still use it if I get the hose, 2 buckets and all the rest of the gear out from time to time.

Could this be used with the ONR? I would use it as per the instructions so 2 or 3 squirts per panel on the vehicle after it had been washed with ONR but NOT DRIED - so on the wet car with the ONR solution still sitting on it.

Am I going to do any damage?

That’s fine, Aqua Wax is supposed to be used on a wet car. There is so little protection in the ONR (blue), it won’t affect the aqua wax.

I've been doing that since I started using ONR, never had any problems with Aqua Wax as a drying aid.

Yes you can. Mix ONR at 1:64 mix (15 ml per 1liter).

I am so glad more and more people are at least willing to give this a try. In a world where people find problems to solutions, it seems just getting people to test stuff properly is becoming more and more difficult.
