    Re: Has anyone use D114

    Here is a review I did of D114 over on MOL. I love this stuff. I prefer to use this combined with D156 Synthetic spray wax over ONR and UWW+. I also use D114 mixed at 1:128 to wash my house...

    Re: New house = hard water = water spots

    I use 1 gallon of distilled water, $1 at my local grocery store, and the GD method. When done, I still have plenty of solution left over to refill my 32oz spray bottle which I use to presoak.

    Re: New house = hard water = water spots

    We have very hard water here in Phoenix. Add to that, it is exceptionally dry and I have a non-metallic black car, and you have a disaster. I found that i was actually swirling my car during the...

    Re: Dilution question - Meg's D114 Express Wash

    I have yet to find a scenario where D114 streaks in either rinseless or waterless use. As I mentioned in my review, it won't even streak on a hot hood which I have cleaned many times immediately...

    Re: Dilution question - Meg's D114 Express Wash

    I've been using D114 for both waterless and rinseless for a while now and I love it. Per Mike Stoops at MOL 1:256 or 1:128 for rinseless and 1:128 for waterless. 1:10 or 1:15 will be strong enough...

    Re: I'm really starting to hate my car!

    Have you tried a rinseless wash? I have had better luck with my Black Lexus since going rinseless mixed with distilled water. Waterspots after a traditional 2BM wash are disasterous.

    Re: Waterless Wash Plus+ vs Optimum No Rinse

    I use ONR and UWW. I like UWW better as a waterless and I really didn't notice a difference between the 2 when doing rinseless. Since ONR is cheaper per gallon, ONR will continue to handle the...

    Re: california duster question

    I use a California Duster either daily or every other day on my black car. When used properly it will not scratch even very soft paint. It's all about technique.

    Re: 2006 Lexus IS 350 refresh

    Thanks guys. I have always been fond of the IS series, both the first and second gen versions. Keep in mind the car is an 2006, it was the first year of production of the 350. I picked it up on...

    2006 Lexus IS 350 refresh

    This past weekend I threw a second coat of Meguiars M26 paste on my daily driver. The car has not been polished in 6 months (thin paint), but has been treated with Poorboys Black Hole before wax. I...

    Although Arizona has yet to put out water restrictions, they are coming. It is expected in 2016 should the current western drought continue. This is one of the many reasons I have switched...

    Glazed with Poorboys Black Hole 2 weeks ago, waxed with M26 liquid immediately after, and with M26 again today. The paint is in great shape, but hardly perfect. The glaze is holding strong. For...

    Re: Meguiars 26

    I threw another coat of M26 paste on this morning and I just love this stuff. I find the paste spreads much easier than the liquid (I prefer to wax by hand) and I can get it much thinner. I applied...

    Re: Rinseless wash process

    For a black car UWW+ is the only thing you need. Buy a gallon of distilled water and mix at 1oz to 44oz of water. UWW+ is praised on this site for a reason, it's excellent. I no longer need any...

    Re: Rinseless wash process

    Ultima Waterless Wash Plus (UWW+) or Pinnacle Liquid Crystal Waterless wash with Caranuba are far better deals than the Megs product. The Megs product is very good, but a pricey in comparison.

    Re: Is a Glaze really Important???

    Not that I can tell, I never get right up to the trim so I'm not sure. I seem to be getting about a month out of Poorboys, which is fine by me since I wax monthly. My understanding is that The...

    Having a non-metallic black daily driver, PB black hole is a savior. It masks the minor imperfections and I don't have to polish. The paint is already thin enough on my car and I plan to have it...

    I use the Gary Dean method with 1 gallon of distilled water ($0.99) and 1oz of ONR. Blot dry with a waffle weave and final wipe with a dry MF towel. No streaks on a non-metallic black.

    I emailed Optimum about ONR breaking down and they replied that it will not break down. It will lose it's blue color after a while, but the solution will work the same as the day it was mixed.
