ONR and keeping a black Jeep clean

So you bought the black Jeep cuz it was soooo sexy on the lot.

Then you got it home and remembered how easily black vehicles show every speck and spot of dirt.

I like detailing cars, so I'm willing to indulge the inner OCD that goes with maintaining a black Jeep.

I use a couple of products on a regular basis. Optimum No Rine wash (ONR) and Optimum Spray Wax. These two work together to allow for a quick wash process and easy maintenance routine.

I started out with a regular wash, followed by a claybar. I then followed up with a layer of high gloss sealant and a layer of carnuba wax. It took the better part of a weekend to lay it all down, since each layer needs a cure time.

But it allows for quick maintenance washes afterwards:

The hood after a couple of days of the pollen onslaught


After an ONR wash





The cool part is, ONR speeds up the process. Wash with one hand, dry with the other. I can get the exterior washed and dried in less than an hour.

Anyway, thought I'd bring the discussion over here, since I couldn't resist 'jacking the other thread.

Wow she looks pretty! What brand of clay bar/sealant did you use? I should do that to my jeep. Is that a mountain btw? It just the hood decal?

Thanks! She is a COD Rubi. I guess I could have posted a full shot, too...


I use Meguiar's Claybar. ONR can be diluted to a strength that makes a great clay lube, too. Sealant is Klasse High Gloss. Caruba is Pinnacle Souveran.

I thought the only day a Jeep was supposed to be clean is the day you bought it...

It isn't recommended to do an ONR wash for anything other than "lightly soiled". If you take it Wheeling I would pressure wash it first. Ditto with road salt or gravel dust.

I usually do a quick rinse with the hose before I start.

My last two washes, however, were done with no hose at all. The pictures above are from the second one.

I also washed my wife's car after she drove down a gravel road in the rain. Rinsed with the hose then ONR'd. Worked great. Just follow the directions and it will amaze you.

My wife currently drives a '07 rabbit.
My last one was a '08 Passat Wagon. Before that i've owned 9 other dubs over the years.
