The need for a detail spray is significant in any detailers arsenal, no matter if you are a pro or enthusiast. ONR detail spray is one of the most used items in my shop and it gets the job done while being extremely cost effective for the following uses above.
Today I am going to show how to make detail spray from the famous Optimum No Rinse.
Here is what you need to get started (Due to the many uses I stated above we are going to make a gallon of ONR Quick Detailer)
- Quick Detailer: ratio 1:16 or 8 oz/1 gallon or 240 ml to 3.84 liters for water (62.5 ml per liter)
- Clay lube: ratio 1:64 or 2 oz/1 gallon or 60 ml to 3.84 liters of water (15.6 ml per liter)
Please Note: If you do not want to make a complete gallon of ONR Quick Detail spray you here are the following dilution ratios for smaller bottles
- 16oz bottle: 15oz distilled water 1 oz ONR concentrate.
- 32oz bottle: 30oz distilled water 2oz ONR concentrate.
1 gallon of distilled water (can also be found locally at any market, Improves product performance drastically).
After you poured your distilled water into your 1 gallon container, you need to add 8oz of ONR concentrate to 120oz of distilled water. If you do not have measuring cups, you can use the cap that comes with your ONR. The cap is approximately 0.5oz so you need to add 16 0.5 caps to make 8oz.
Make sure when pouring your ONR, you do this over your gallon container to help reduce the chances of spilling any product. There is also a simple way to pour/transfer your ONR
I highly recommend using the DI Dispenser Bottles to ensure that you do not spill or waste product while mixing/adding the concentrate, as even when the tip is flipped open drips will only come out.
These bottles also make it very easy to travel with if you are doing a mobile job.
After you have poured your ONR concentrate put the cap on and shake vigorously.
Now you are ready to pour your detail spray in a bottle .
A quick tip that I recommend is to have a little 4oz Spray Bottle to keep in your car to clean bugs off the windshield or remove the dreaded bird bomb. I always keep a bottle in my car and it comes in extremely handy.
Using ONR for a detail spray is very cost effective for a pro and an enthusiast. ONR-QD is the detailers work horse for detail spray, as you can use it all day and not think twice about wasting product.
ONR detail spray might not give you the gloss and slick feel that traditional detail sprays typically leave behind, however that is not necessarily a bad thing as sometimes you just need a clean surface.
This is one of the best bang for your buck products you can buy as it has an endless list of uses.
