    Well, I think I have over complicated my auto cleaning recently. I switched from the Optimum exclusive to more of the Obsessed Garage method. Now that I’ve purchased all of that and the results are great, I miss the simplicity of ONR, Power Clean and Opti Seal. I have found it a lot more time consuming to grab all the products needed to do an inside and out weekly (2 kids, it’s needed) vs ONR for inside and out a few towels and the BRS. I watched a detalks with Yvan and Levi about detailing minimalism and I think I’m getting to that point where I want to be with the above 3 OPT products. Thoughts?

    It appears with the ONR in the garden sprayer it cleaned up better. Each time I do an ONR wash I use that as a pre spray no matter how dirty it is.

    Yea, I’m definitely done with soap washing. I’ll update when I get home and do a quick wipe down with the ONR.

    I didn’t take any pics today but I’m not too impressed with with my wash I did today. The sun was out and I used the Optimum Car Wash vs ONR and dried with beadmaker. This may have been the last straw with switching between ONR and the a regular 2 bucket method. I noticed some possible water spots or just a finish I’m not happy with. So I guess I’ll stick with my tried and true ONR, BRS, and optiseal. So when I get home shortly I’m going to take my pump sprayer full of ONR spray it and wipe it down with a microfiber. On the interior side of things, I’m wrestling with PS Xpress interior cleaner vs ONR with a spray of OPT leather protectant. I think I’m happier with the Optimum method.

    Mostly I used ONR (blue or green) but once in a while I’ll use the power clean. I am trying to decide which I prefer. I like the idea of a dedicated interior cleaner which is why I made 30:1, which the rag company referred to as the dilution for that.

    This is my 2019 F-150, I started with a pressure wash off of the big stuff, wheels and tires Power Clean 3:1, ONR pre spray (256:1) in a garden pump sprayer, followed by BRS ONR wash, clay towel with OCW, then dried with Opti-Seal. Tires done with Opti Bond Tire Gel. Interior vacuumed and plastics cleaned with Power Clean 30:1 and a detail brush, glass with ONR, any spots in carpet or seats with Fabric Clean and protect 3:1.
  7. I am currently using Power Clean at 3:1 for my wheels and tires, 5:1 for weather tech mats and IK foamer pre spray (rarely), and 30:1 for interior plastics with a detail brush to make a lather. JBradt
