    I've never used ONR and the directions say to use a microfiber towel. I can just use a wash mitt right? There's a water restriction in Charlotte, NC and I can't use a hose to wash my car.

    But with ONR I just need a bucket of water, washing mitt and some microfiber towels, right?

    If so, :bowdown: Gonna wash this dirty bitch tomorrow morning.

    I haven't used ONR yet but it seems like you'd at least want to hose off the car first.

    That's why I posted this - I didn't know if I should hose it off first or what. I could sneak in a quick hose down despite the water restriction I suppose.

    I guess I should've posted this question in the detailing EDU though? :o

    If you are using ONR there is no need to hose it off first. If there is a ton of mud on a vehicle I spray that off first and then proceed with the ONR.

    no need to hose it down unless you have caked on mud. the stuff is awesome and easy as hell.

    Yeah a lot of the vehicles I do have caked on mud and it is much easier to spray all of that off first. I've used ONR on some pretty bad vehicles and it always works amazing. I also think it leaves better gloss than regular car wash.

    I never use a mit just a deep plush PakShak MF. I tried once with a sheep skin mit and that didnt work at all.

    ONR washing is amazing. I blast off the lower portions of most of my details because I live in the mountains and they are usually covered in mud. I then use the wash. I have customers swearing that I just waxed their car when I done too!
