Krismas,
wow 2oz. to 3 gallons of water?
I poured the 70ml to about 10 litres of water, btw is this the new or old formula? it seems that the new one is more concentrated than the old one?
If it's the new one than I may have underdiluted it.

VX55,
I think I used it at the 1oz. per gallon ratio. try it your sample NAOO!

I think you guys have the latest version. Mine is the older one, smells of coconut 059.gif
If I am not mistaken, the dilution ratio is OCWash 1:128 Water or more (weaker dilution), depending on the water quality. Since KrisMas is able to wash at 2oz per 3 gallons of water, that would be 1:192. Not bad considering that KrisMas mentioned his water supply is quite hard smile.gif

Hmmm, I just washed my car yesterday with Born To Be Mild, it is fun and slick wash smile.gif . It does cost around ~RM1 for a wash, and I am only using ~5ml (just one capful) to ~1Gal of water. Hyper concentrated stuff smile.gif . Hmmmm, should I just try out my sample of OCWash tonight? Hmmmm, decisions decisions 059.gif

Fishy ! Nice write up.

Don't mind me adding my humble point of view.

1oz to 1gal (1:128) is the recommended dilution ratio from Optimum.
However, I have manage to use 20ml to 30ml (less then 1 oz) to 7 to 8 liter of water (more or less 2 gal of water).
My practice is that water is always at the same volume and i mix OCWash depends on how much cleaning power (or foam for this matter) i would like.

So far , i wash my car once every week and if the weather has been kind (dry), i would only use 20ml. If the weather is bad (rain), i usually up to 30ml. Just for the sake of foam which it seems to never give up no matter how dirty it is. Trust me, there is alot of difference on how the shampoo react on the paint surface.

I'll try to write a review too (just being a busybody) on different dilution ratio. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Till then.
Adrian

I was thinking maybe the dilution is too strong at 70ml, as the rinse bucket foam looks strong enough to be use for another wash...... smile_big.gif
