I really need to look into the fully ONR offering as currently no hose option as inbetween houses.

My fortnightly wash method involves the local Tesco jetwash:

- Snow foam user my hand Foamer and Bilt Hamber AF and Korrosol on the wheels
- Rinse with pressure/cold shampoo
- Hot foam brush - don't touch the car but drip this over so the whole car covered in shampoo
- Wash mitt hand wash
- Cold rinse
- Dry using Aquawax and microfibres

Works pretty well and can manage it with 2 or sometimes 3 £1 credits in the machine  :smiley:

Washed mine this morning using ONR and will continue to do so throughout the winter albeit with a pre-wash using Bilt Hamber AF. I've become quite confident in the product and technique now and I'm convinced its no less harmful than using the traditional 2BM - id even go as far as saying it works better.

It's good knowing I'm saving the planet too in using less water  :grin:
