    T.A.R. Remover

    Sorry, should have been Power Clean. No Opti Clean used this time.
  2. Meant to say Power Clean instead of Opti Clean....
  3. Sorry, have to "spam" this also here for everyone to see, so I tried using T.A.R. on my car with now rough sides thanks to "salt" (or whatever it is in Finland). Result was excellent! Did this as a test between 2 products: Washed both front doors with ONR (new formula) using the Big Red Sponge and dryed the panels. Sprayed T.A.R. on one of the doors and Power Clean (1:3) on the other door (not at the same time). Let dwell for 2 minutes and agitated gently with a microfiber towel (separate towels for each product). The T.A.R. towel was much dirtier than the Opti Clean. Washed again (2 times) with ONR and the Big Red Sponge and dryed the panel. Did only one test-side at a time e.g. one product at a time, after each other. The Opti Clean side still felt rough but the T.A.R. side was smooth like a babys bottom! Added Opti-Clean on top. Question: Could there be a danger with the T.A.R. or Opti Clean if one couldn't get everything cleaned off using BRS and ONR? Did wash inside the doors also with just ONR. @Ron@Optimum Same thing written also in this other thread, sorry, too happy!

    Luckily I didn't "believe" you so I tried using T.A.R. on my car with now rough sides thanks to "salt" (or whatever it is in Finland). Result was excellent!

    New Formula No Rinse

    I now have new ONR here in Europe coming my way tomorrow!

    Opti-Seal as Drying aid

    No, but now there is a new product on the market for cleaning the towels P&S (or The Rag Company) Rags To Riches. It is probably worth to check out!?

    Opti seal chalked my plastic trim?

    Same here! 🤔 Opti-Sealed almost everything in our household without problems. I also have black mirrors on my new car.

    New Formula No Rinse

    Do we have it in Europe already? You could keep us posted! 🙂

    Yvan Retiring?

    Even this current version of ONR is working like magic so use it and enjoy using it because it rocks!

    New Formula No Rinse

    I assume the protection part is still quite light so the usage of the product stays as flexible it has always been? It probably doesn’t affect protective products applied on top?

    New Formula No Rinse

    ...but will it foam!? 🤗 Good news, haven't stopped using ONR after I started even if there are some great competitors in the market. I just trust, and know, what I can achieve using ONR.

    Opti-clean as a wheel cleaner

    Yes it can, if used very often. Doesn’t take care of everything, especially not indeed barrels but handles the surface good enough for my taste. Test and see how you like it? Opti-Clean is a great product but has its limitation and strengths, like any other product. Like the citrus smell!

    Opti-Seal as Drying aid

    Yep, wrung our towels.

    Opti-Seal as Drying aid

    I put them straight into a bucket of ONR and they come out fine after washing. Of course I soak the drying towels in ONR before starting drying the next time.

    Protection duration several products

    ONR W&W, went through whole summer using this, seems to “layer” because I’ve seen the protection the whole time. Never had time to protect this particular car “for real”. 😝

    Alcantara Cleaning & Protection

    What about a product that would protect Alcantara?
  17. No Soap

    Alcantara Cleaning & Protection

    How much of the protection is there? Could/should I use it as the first thing in a brand new car?
  18. I think so but The Rag Company now has it.

    Tweaked ONR

    Give us some hints how to identify the newest version, please! 🤗
  20. It is not the ONR! It has to be something else that is on there! Can you take more pictures?

    The Line between Opticlean and ONR

    Would dare to answer that no, there isn't any.
  22. Just to be sure, you are talking about Optimum No-Rinse (ONR) and not some other product? ONR can't damage anything if you ask me.
  23. Just go over again with some damp ONR towels...AND after that with dry towels? That is what I do, don't think ONR could hurt the plastics in the gauge cluster...

    Power Clean Testing

    Yeah, it will be about twice the price in gallon size in Europe. Expensive to transport liquids...

    Power Clean Testing

    Why would you recommend Powerclean instead of Bilt Hamber Surfex HD? Is Powerclean among the safest products for the user (remember that from somewhere)?
