Do you guys use ONR on really dirty vehicles? I'm looking into buying some but wanted to know how you guys use it? I've seen some videos but every seems to use it differently. What is your method to using it?

What's better to use for media cleaning? Mitt, towel or sponge?

Also what is a good pump sprayer to fill up with onr to prerinse the vehicle? Looking for a handheld one. Looking to purchase in store too.

Alright, thanks.

I am skeptical about using ONR on a dirty car since the dirt and what not is dragged across the surface. Do you have any problems with the paint after using this?

If you live in an apartment complex where do you wash if you don't want to do it in the parking lot?

In my thread I talked about how I used it on my wife's really dirty car, full of road salt from the IL winters and it was too dirty to do with ONR. What I've done since then in the winter months is run the cars through the local coin op car wash place and get most of that salt and dirt off the car, then pull them into the garage and do a ONR wash to get them clean. Even though there was no marring to speak of the first time, there was residue on the paint of the dirt, so it wasn't truely clean.

I guess that 2 out of the 4 replies above your thread weren't enough for you?

I prefer to use a huge, thick nap microfiber towel. It holds a ton of solution, allows a greater 'clean' surface area while washing, and when folded provides a good cushion against the surface so that dirt is whisked away rather than dragged across the paint.

Check out my rinseless washing guide I just posted,

I may not be using ONR specifically, but it would the exact same process if I had.
