What method does everyone use?

I purchased a Foam Cannon to attach to my pressure washer and now I don't even poor soap in a bucket! :D

What I use:

M&H Foam Gun
Mr. Pink Car Wash
Wash Mitt (Soft Wool)
Tire Cleaner

I haven't video recorded myself washing my truck, but here is an example of what I do:


I still like to take my wash mitt and go over the entire truck after I foam it, the foam really helps break down dirt on the paint, after you hand wash you rinse and dry.

I recommend this OUT of the sun, as the sun will dry the soap before you can get it rinsed off.

Enjoy, and let me know your method!

I know this is an older thread but summer is here. So maybe it's a good time to revisit.

Im pretty much OCD about keeping my vehicles clean. My once a month car cleaning weekend takes about 6 hours per vehicle.

Keeping this short and sweet. I was, poilish, and wax. Using all Ice products.

In between washes I use Amzoil Speed wax and large cotton towels.

Sometime before winter. I'll take a bottle of liquid wax and spray the entire underside and door jams of my truck. I try to get it into any area that salt or salt water might stand.

Not sure if this really helps prevent rusting much but I haven't had any rust issues.......

Off the self products, ICE makes some nice stuff. I've been buying everything online from a few different sites. ChemicalGuys.com is one, and AutoGeekOnline is another.

The spray foam is awesome to use!
