    Oh boy...I wish I could confess my sins here. But - I`d be banned for life for sure... All I can say is - it`s been worth it.

    Let`s see if we can steer this back to cars...

    I confess I use Mr. Clean multipurpose cleaner on interiors. It`s an awesome rinseless wash. Cheap as dirt, very concentrated and cuts grease very well. I also confess I use it on exteriors when I want squeaky clean paint.

    Re: Confessions Thread

    512Detail- Heh heh, I liked that one Never occurred to me at all!

    And yeah, I too utterly hate that particular paint...I had the GMC version of it, and NEVER AGAIN. I`d rather have straight black!

    Dan- Hey, I`ll take that and steer it right back away from cars I use the Mr. Clean Multi *every night* for a quickie on the one tile floor. It seems way too alkaline for use on any of my leather stuff though, and I find that it *does* require some degree of rinsing lest it leave a residue.

    So you don`t have to rinse it? Maybe I`m mixing it too strong...gotta admit I do it by eye.

    BUT..when I want to get that same floor *truly* clean, I use 3D`s APC instead. Simply cleans better for me. But the Mr. Clean *is* good for the daily use, and yeah..nice and cheap when you get a "extra XXoz. Free!" bottle for under $4.

    Never thought of using on a vehicle though (see, back to cars ) if only because I do better on the floor with my 3D. I gather the Mr. Clean works better for *you* than your APCs though, right?

    I miss Jerry Garcia every day
    I drink too much Merlot and love every minute of it.
    Sometimes on a long drive I pee into an empty diet coke can.
    I sometimes wonder if the 3 items above are related....
    I liked Gyeon Cure so much I purchased about a 2 year supply. As soon as it arrived I purchased a 2 year supply of TAC Systems Quartz Max just to see if I might like it better...I wonder if this was related to the merlot thing.

    Sorry man. Look on the bright side, they will get quite the shock when they see it in full blazing sun for the first time, and your phone will blow up with pics and OMGs.

    TBH, I just swapped it for tasks ONR was for. I`m with you, neither touch my leather.

    Ah, BUT...I`m using ONR on two leather seat cushions in the house! Yikes, huh?!? Eh, they`re already pretty, uhm...compromised...from the last cat, so no biggie if it turns out badly. But so far (maybe 20 cleanings) so good. Still not using it on the vehicles` leather though.

    OK, I`ll bite...noting that I have a number of silver vehicles ...why did you do something that was inevitably gonna result in additional marring and thus require the removal of additional clear?

    I`m too cheap to buy spray bottles for mixing up waterless wash ratios or APC.

    Uber, ONR, and N914 are in retired/cleaned windex spray bottles, Power Clean is in an old auto-glass cleaner spray bottle, and Griot`s Rinseless is in an old Meguiars Quick Detailer spray bottle.
