Foam Cannons, Buckets & Related

Did you know most scratches on cars are from people washing and drying them!  The best thing you can do is have a dongley reef like wash mitt that doesn't drag grit across the paint, a mitt slide or dirt trap to clean your wash mitt and keep the dirt you wash off at the bottom of the bucket and not in your wash water, a decent lubricating soap, and a drying towel that is not only soft and absorbent but more importantly has long ideally twisted loop fibers to not drag dirt and grit across the surface.  Wash and dry in straight lines.  Wash your microfibers with microfiber wash, no fabric softener and either hand dry them or low heat dryer (you don't want to melt the ends to make them scratchy).  If you want to step it up get 2 buckets and mitt slides/dirt traps, one with water to rinse your mitt, and the other with soap and water.  Up from there is a 3 bucket where you have a dedicated wheel bucket.  

We have a huge range, but if pressed to choose I'd go the Chemical guys clear bucket, Rockcar mitt slides, and reef like wash mitt, Citrus wash and gloss or blacklight for a black car soap, and the performer drying towel (that towel is amazing).  

I'd also use the big mouth foam cannon on a water blaster with the right adapter for whatever water blaster you have.  You don't need it, but it is fun and I feel cleans better and faster as the soap sticks to the surface longer, so it works more and you work less.  

The Mitt slides and dirt traps will fit a standard bucket, so if you want to use the bucket you already have then go for it, they will for example fit a standard Mitre 10 orange bucket perfectly.  But the clear ones from Chemical Guys are better quality and lower to make it easier to put your arm in on an angle.  And they look cool.  

Cleaning your wash mitt with a mitt slide to reduce scratching when washing the car

What's the difference between a foam gun and a foam cannon?

A Foam Cannon goes on a water blaster and gives real thick fine foam, like thick shaving cream.  Our favorite is the Big Mouth, it gives great foam, has heaps of adjustments, a wide opening to make it easy to fill without spilling soap everywhere, and has a cool clear bottle.  All the crew had older foam cannons and we all got new Big Mouths when they came out and we love them.  If You have a smaller water blaster you will probably need an adapter Click here to learn more about adapters.  If you have a very high pressure industrial water blaster you are better to go with the TORQ Pro, but for most people the Big mouth is the go.  If you are unsure what adapter you need and where it goes this blog will help Fitting Foam Cannons to water blasters: do you need an adapter? Which — lovecarsnz

Foam guns like the Blaster 6 go on a normal hose.  These are handy as they are really quick to use, you don't have to have a water blaster, but they foam differently.  You don't get the thick fine foam you get with the Big Mouth the Soap is bigger bubbles, more like bubble bath than shaving cream.
