    ONR is definitely a step above though. Worth ordering.

    Some Walmarts carrry QEW in the RV section.

    One of my customers did a few weeks ago. I come out to his office and wash his black ES350 a couple times a month and between my washes, he was washing it home using a hose and was constantly leaving water spots since he couldn't dry it fast enough to avoid them. Anyway, he asks me how I can wash his car in the sun and I never leave water spots. Told him about ONR and also recommended he pick up Optimum Instant Detailer.

    Called him this morning to see if he wanted me to come out on Monday to wash his car. He said he washed it yesterday with the ONR and then used OID and said it looked so good he wouldn't need me out again until the end of the week. Glad he prepays (he is a doctor so he prepays for 10 washes in advance so I don't have to wait if he is with a patient) so if he cuts back to once a month, I've already been paid anyway. :)

    Everytime I use that stuff I get this haze thats left behind. Am I using too much? I actually took the 17oz bottle and cut it 1:1 with water. I find that OCW also tends to leave this like haze. Im wondering if its the MFs Im using as they have a huge deep plush nap.

    I go way beyond just washing. I average close to $50 an hour.

    Hmmm...something is definately wrong there, Paulie. I have never had such an issue with ONR. Paint is nice and slick, with zero haze. You're using a capful for every gallon of water? Do you use it as a clay lube, too? If so, does it haze then? I wash a section with ONR and dry it right away. Instructions say to not let it dry. Maybe, just maybe...a bad batch? I dunno, just a thought.

    I've seen pics of your work before and it always looks good, so I doubt it is you. :dunno:
