    Optimum Car Wash question

    The dry suds are in the wash bucket. The suds in the wash bucket don't disappear, they just dry out.
  2. I absolutely love this product! My question is, why do the suds dry out so quickly? The suds last forever but lately I've noticed the suds in my wash bucket look and feel dry even after only being there for about 15 minutes. I've never had this happen to any other car soaps I've used. It doesn't present a problem as it still works great but just curious on why it does that. Is this normal? Only reason I can think of is the sun drying it out. Any help would be appreciated.

    Optimum Opti-Bond...I think I love you!

    Yes, I'm well aware it can be diluted 1:1 but I love the durability and look of it at full strength. I just bought a gallon of it on top of the 32oz bottle so I'm set for a long time. I only maintain my car & the wife's so I'm good for a while. I'll sometimes wash my brother's car & mother-in-law's but they get the PB treatment on their tires, which is a hell of a lot better than what they use on their own cars.
  5. I have been a long time user of Poorboy's Bold n Bright tire dressing and is still one of my favorite dressings. However, I have recently replaced it with Optimum Opti-Bond and don't see me going back to PB BnB. I can't find any negative things to say about it. It's so easy to apply and my wheels have that dark sheen look to them for an entire week until I have to wash my car. It looks like it can go longer but there's no sense in it since I do weekly washes on my cars. I've also tried Optimum Tire Shine and was impressed by it as well, but I found PB BnB had a slight edge over it after a week. Opti-Bond is a whole new beast however. I ordered a 32oz bottle a few weeks ago and just recently ordered a gallon of it. Thank you, Optimum, for another great product. I am noticing more Optimum products in my collection.

    Best Applicator for Opti-Bond Tire Gel?

    This one looks good too but it looks like it would be difficult to apply on lower profile tires. Thank you for posting it though.

    Best Applicator for Opti-Bond Tire Gel?

    This applicator looks like a winner. I don't think I've ever seen it on AG or ACC. I'm going to give this a try. Thank you.
  9. Can someone recommend a great applicator for applying opti-bond tire gel? I don't dilute it so I apply it as a gel. Mine came with a blue foam applicator but it's not working out for me. What are you fellow members using to apply it?
  10. Great save. Thanks for sharing.

    Power Clean to Strip LSP

    Thanks, Chris. Will OPC 1:3 work ok as a prewash?

    Thanks for the welcome. I stocked up on Optimum products on my order today since they were on sale.

    Power Clean to Strip LSP

    Sorry to bump an old thread but can you add 1oz of OPC to a 5gal bucket of wash solution and simply do a traditional wash to remove LSP?
