Yeah, did a real dumb thing today. Was going to use the G110 and M105 on my hood. Soon as I started the first several passes I knew something was wrong! Well, I have my Ult. Prtoectant in a Meg's bottle...and it looks a lot like my M105 sample bottle. Yeah, I buffed UP on a section of hood. Used Cleaner Wax a couple times to remove it. Then did the M105 and got great results. THEN, I marked the bottle.... :poke Some time ago I cleaned my windshield with Hot Shine tire shine cuz that bottle looks a lot like the Meg's window cleaner bottle...both clear. Live and learn....maybe.

Definitely mark those bottles :chuckle1

At least nothing bad happened.

There are lots of kids temporary markers you can get for marking bottle, if you don't want to mark it permanently. What I find works well is just a sticky note, they actually stay on much longer than you'd think. You could always add a little Scotch tape if your worried about it falling off.

Why did you have Ult. Prot. in a secondary bottle? Did the original bottle break?

I use quart size spray bottles and small squeeze bottles for products I buy in bulk. I bought 2" tall vinyl stick-on letters from an office supply store. I keep it simple: APC 4:1, APC 10:1, 2,7, 9, 80 etc. I also use foam "kan koozies" on all my aerosol products such as window cleaner so you can set them on a hood or roof without worry of sliding off.
Far from a pro, but I like to act like one.

That's clever.

The Ult. prot. bottle was a mess to use...for me anyway. Ran all over the top of the bottle, down the sides. Something wrong with that one's design me thinks.. :dunno

Thanks. A few years ago I acquired some industrial cabinets for my garage and was reorganizing my supplies. I had a bunch of koozies stuffed on a shelf near my window cleaner and it finally hit me to mate the two. I also have some of the thinner ones that I fit to the 16oz bottles of various Mirror Glaze products.
