hag6 Posted October 30, 2010 Share Posted October 30, 2010 Overall I am impressed with the results. It cleans well and leaves a nice glossy finish. The final result is similar to ONR which I have been using for several months but wanted to try the waterless version for convenience. The car a 2007 black Mini covered in a week's worth of road dirt. I mixed up 500mls into a spray bottle (3:1 - 375mls of ionized water to 4fl oz of opti-clean). I used 2 good quality mf cloths (one side has a plush pile the other short pile) to clean the bodywork and I needed all of the 500mls to clean the bodywork. Working on one panel at a time I used the plush side of the cloths to wipe the opti-clean across the car's surface. The cloths became saturated very quickly so I used the short-pile side of the cloth to wipe across the windscreen, rear and side windows and used another dry mf to dry and buff the glass. I also used the saturated short-pile to wipe down the plastic trim. The cleaning power of opti-clean was sufficient to get the trim clean - it seemed a waste to use up any more of the solution. I had just enough of the original 500mls to lightly spray all four wheels but as they were quite dirty with dust. I needd to add a further 1oz of OC to my remaining solution to provide a bit more cleaning power. I used three more (general purpose short-pile) MF cloths to gently wipe the wheels clean. This is the same technique I use to clean the wheels when using ONR mixed up as 1.5 ltrs of water to 1oz of ONR. The end result is good but it is a more expensive option when compared to ONR as I need to use about 5oz of opti-clean for one wash. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
