OCWash = Optimum Car Wash
OCWax = Optimum Car Wax
ONR = Optimum No Rinse Car Wash

DGXXX = Duragloss (product number)
TPP = Total Performance Polish DG105

If other forummers have come across other acronyms, please feel free to add.

Even product specific also can. Because we won't know what some of the numbers refer to anyway.
e.g.
DG105 = Duragloss TPP = Duragloss Total Performance Polish
M105 = Meguiars Professional Ultra-Cut Compound
