    Hello everyone,
    After several failed attempts to find something on the internet for an answer to this topic, I figured this might be a great place to go for a response and feedback. So after a long NJ winter and plenty of rinse-less washes with ONR, I have plenty of solution left over. I finally got around to doing a traditional 2 bucket wash with the incorporation of the foam cannon (it was great to be above 40 degrees). After cleaning up, It then crossed my mind what the effect would be if I mixed 1 oz of ONR to my foam cannon along with 3-4 oz of any high foaming soap in regards to increased lubricity? After long searches and no findings I wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this? I am going to get around to trying it out on my personal car but wanted to see everyone's thoughts n this?

    i usually add ONR to my buckets (rinse and soapy) to increase lubricity. It certainly cant hurt to add it to your foam cannon. the more lube the better!

    it's also great to condition hard water.

    I also was searching around for this about 2 weeks ago and couldn't find anything. I might try it today in a mtm foam cannon, 2oz of ONR and the rest hot water and just see what happens lol.

    Zerix,I am more interested as the ONR being a supplement product in the foam cannon not a stand-alone product in the foam cannon. But let all of us know how the ONR works as a stand alone product !

    It will probably reduce the amount of foam. When I add it to my soap bucket, the suds disappear.

    Yeah I don't expect ONR to foam much if at all but just curious how it will react plus see the cleaning power

    TEST IT!! In theory I see how it could be a great pre rinse solution. If you don't I will next month I am due for a new LSP either way then so... Update us please.

    Well tried it out yesterday and it was pretty much a failure. I tried it on a car with Sonax PNS on it and I put 2 oz of ONR and filled the rest with hot water, turned it on full foam and it basically just comes out as water lol. The ONR/water mixture just runs off the surface too quickly and beads up from the PNS.

    Okay so i did try using the ONR and about lower diution rate of soap about 2 ounces in the mtm foam cannon and it did make the panel feel a little slicker but not by leaps and bounds. Would be interesting to see other ways that ONR can be used in part of the washing process? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated !
