foam cannon wash

whats everyone use to wash their trucks that use foam cannons? a buddy of mine picked up a wax + wash combo kit that attaches to your water hose through that's "Reflection" brand.

I've always used the hands on soap/bucket/water combo but looking at something along these lines to do often during the crappy Illinois winter.

whats everyone using?

I have a cannon for the pressure washer, but more often times than not, it just ends up streaking dirt because you can cover it in soap so quickly that it dries before you can scrub it. I've been using a $10 ag sprayer for the water hose since. Spray a section, scrub, rinse.

I do not own or have ever used a foam cannon. And I donít see how you remove road grime from a rocker panel without scrubbing.

Just water hose and a hand mitt for me. Anything else is just sanding the clear coat without constant rinse. Though our winters are not the same as yours.

I use all adams products. I use the foam cannon and a bucket with soap and water in it. Normally rinse the truck, spray the foam cannon, and then scrub with a mit, then rinse. I use the mega foam from adams but any of there soap products will work. I've never just used the foam cannon and not scrubbed. Do believe the adamas products won't cause damage if it does dry on the paint.
