Pressure washer and foam cannon

I bought myself some Christmas presents and decided to test it out. It's a portable electric pressure washer and a foam cannon. This works great for removing caked on dirt and road grime. Just spray the foam on, let it sit for 5 minutes or so, wash it off, then hand wash your truck like usual. This method of washing reduces scratches on your paint because the majority of the dirt is already removed from the foam soap and pressure washer. It's kind of hard to see the foam because my truck is already white, but it's awesome!

Works good, but you still need to agitate the surface in order to get it totally clean. It helps a lot to remove the majority of the dirt and grime though.

Nice stuff man! if y'all dont want to use the foam cannon and pressure washer setup you can always just go with a foam gun. just plug into your water hose and achieve the same thing!

The foam is an excellent tool.
However, I would not pressure wash the foam off. Pressuring that dirt and mud into your paint can and will scratch it.
After foam, remove with a light spray and then move it up to medium pressure.

You should be gently removing contaminants, not forcing them into the paint
