    Hi guys,

    My car sits outside, so it's often exposed to the dust, dirt, rain, poop etc..

    Hoping to get some recommendations on an inexpensive, budget oriented, weekend warrior - Quick Detailer / Waterless wash, maybe something with the ability to remove water spots too, just so I can spray on and wipe off any areas that need it.

    I've read about ONR, but you apply that to a bucket of water, then wash the car... then I read about the opti-clean... which seems similar. It all adds up and gets confusing to be honest, many companies with very similar products that do things very similar to each other

    Thoughts ?

    Thanks in advance

    Or do what I do !!! (sometimes)

    Premix a small batch of ONR (say 2 or 3 litres) and keep in a small sealed bucket. I do make it a little more concentrated for the application. Come time soak a clean fluffy MF and apply to the whole panel needing attention, dry with a drying towel. Easy as and takes only a few minutes. Seal unused ONR for the next time. I do refresh the ONR after about a month if need be.

    Thanks guys . So you can use ONR as a Quick Detailer to spray and wipe? How is that different to using a dedicated 'QD' ?

    AusAbarth: So you pre-mix a batch of ONR/Water then store it? Would't the water go stagnant ?

    Thanks

    Never tried ONR as a QD – cannot comment, but I would rather use a dedicated QD

    Fair point about the stagnate premix ONR, however I use a little 5 litre bucket to store the ONR (10ml in 2litres). By the time you use it a few times then you need to top up so really no chance to get stagnant. If I have not used it for a month – I chuck it

    HTH

    Thanks AusAbarth . Yeh, I was looking at specific QD's as It's my understand they have lubrication? Whereas, ONR uses water and the ONR holds the dirty to be pulled off, then use a drying towel to dry? Gets rather confusing, lol.

    Curious also. My understand is you use that with 'light' dirt (or is that something for QD's?) ? How does one determine if a car is too dirty to use ONR or a QD, and therfor may need a pre-rinse before using a QD/ONR ?

    Recently got some onr, onqd and oww. I was planning on using the qd as normal ie qd spray.

    The other two i am a little confused also, but was thinking that if the car has driven in rain for a few days its probably too dirty. A few days after a 2bw and not being able to garage my(daily) new ford ranger (skyline and boat live in the garage), it is exposed to elements and may not need a 2bw so i would use the onr or oww then i guess, depending on things like time i can spend, accessibility to full a bucket with the diluted solution of onr.

    I was going to premix a sprayer with oww to keep in my vehicles "quick detail" kit

    That's another thing Ill have to look into... getting a nice fluffy drying towel.

    At this stage, by the looks of it, I think my car might get too dirty to use normal QD. What other option might there be for a Rinse-less wash other than ONR ? I had a couple of people tell me McKees makes a good one (though can't find them available in Aus), aswell as Wolfgang ... thoughts?
