Don'tSink Posted December 12, 2021 Share Posted December 12, 2021 A couple of months ago I ended up buying my first car, nothing spectacular, but for me, all I need. With winter approaching I really wanted to keep my car salt free and clean but spending $15-20 everytime I wanted to wash my car was outside of my budget. Recently I found out about ONR and researched it as much as I could, prior to giving it a go. After my first wash. These are the following troubles I ran into. I've searched the webs and I haven't seen anything similar to what I experienced. For everyone asking the car in question was covered in road salt, I gave it a hosedown with a garden hose and presoak with ONR. A 5 Gal bucket (3 gallon solution)with a grit gaurd and the UBS was used. 1. The water got dirty/dark fast. Nearing the end, the water was pitch black. When applying ONR, the left over ONR on the panel was also dark in colour, I know it's encapsulated but just seems like I was washing my car with dirty water. 2. I noticed that after I went over a section (2-3 times) with ONR and let it linger for too long, there would be white streaking. I'm assuming that's the road salt drying back up. 3. When drying the car, the that was ONR left on the panels was clearly not clean and dark in colour (as mentioned in 1.). The drying towel was picking up the dirty ONR left behind on the car, After I finished drying the car and went to wash the drying towel, when I took the towel to the sick I noticed the water coming out of the towel was filthy/dark. My light grey drying towel had visible dirt in it. Not sure if I did something wrong or if this is normal. This is definitely a learning curve. The help is appreciated!
