If you're a devoted fan of Auto Finesse and buy products from their 5 L Pro Range on a regular basis (Citrus Power, Avalanche, Lather, Imperial, Iron Out, Finale, Crystal, Verso, Dressle and Spritz) then you'll love their new Pro Range Mixing Bottle. With strong branding and a very handy measuring scale printed on the side, you'll no longer find yourself scratching your head when making up dilutions of your favourite products. And, if you wish to use your Auto Finesse Pro Range Mixing Bottle with more chemically aggressive chemicals (e.g. Auto Finesse Oblitarate), then the good news is that the supplied spray head can be easily swapped out for an Atomiza Chemical Resistant Spray Head.
The Auto Finesse Pro Range Mixing Bottle is made out of translucent high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and will thus tolerate long-term exposure to all of the chemicals currently available in the Auto Finesse 5 L Pro Range (Citrus Power, Avalanche, Lather, Imperial, Iron Out, Finale, Crystal, Verso, Dressle and Spritz). A printed measuring scale at intervals of 100 ml (from 200 ml to 800 ml) improves the ease and accuracy with which diluted solutions can be made up, while the included spray head features two spray settings (mist and stream) for maximum convenience.
Making up diluted solutions is relatively straightforward, but it is worth noting that confusion can arise from differences in the way that car care product manufacturers quote dilution ratios. Strictly speaking, dilution ratios should be quoted as the number of parts of original chemical in the total number of parts of diluted solution. Accordingly, a dilution ratio of 1:10 would be achieved by making up a solution containing one part neat chemical and nine parts water, i.e. ten parts in total (giving a dilution ratio of one in ten). However, it is far more common for manufacturers to quote dilution ratios in parts dilutant to parts original chemical. Accordingly, a dilution ratio of 10:1 would be achieved by making up a solution containing ten parts water and one part neat chemical, i.e. eleven parts in total (giving a dilution ratio of ten to one). Compared to the strict definition, this produces a slightly weaker solution, and for this reason we recommend that this latter interpretation is adopted whenever doubt about the ratio arises, as it is far safer to work with a solution that is too weak rather than one that is too strong.
