Well then! Some interest is there for my little "Wash Island Iced Tea"

 

:lol:

 

 

That is I think a 36 oz. Chamber. Half Adam's WW, Half Adam's Car Shampoo. Shake like the dickens, then go nuts!

 

 

NOTE: The above mixture is for a Foam Cannon (attaches to a Pressure Washer). If you want a recipe for a Foam Gun (like I use at home...6 oz. Car Shampoo to the rest of the canister water. Water goes in first. Again, shake it like the dickens...

It all depends on how much fun you want to have. :rockon:

 

I still had about half the cocktail left, and could have stopped long before...but making it snow, and getting a couple photogenic shots also helped in using more than normal.

I usually use a 4oz per 32oz blend in the foam cannon and get about the same results using just Car Shampoo.....Adam's car shampoo is actually perfect for the foam cannons. 2.7/3,000 PSI gas pressure washer....my cheap electric version, not so much.

I just dump it in and go. I'm too excited to actually get to wash my vehicles to hold a measuring device still enough without making a mess.

 

Usually a quarter of the canister on the foam gun.... The rest, warm tap water and shake it till the wife offers me some fries.

When it gets warm I may try a few different ratios. I think Mook set the no expense mark for the cocktail...that is a lot of product.

 

Adding waterless wash though for even more lubrication has me thinking 4oz shampoo, 4 oz WW and the rest water per 36oz container may be more attractive for us poor folk. Do love all those suds.

If you have a cannon, that mixture is perfect. For what I was doing (and don't forget, I help Dylan with product testing and development), experimenting, the WW mixed with the Car Shampoo actually helped it "stick" to the paint.

 

Also, I believe I could have gotten easily four vehicles out of that one recipe, 32/36oz. chamber. If you compare that to what a normal two-bucket wash with foam gun would use as far as Car Shampoo goes...

 

4-6oz. of Car Shampoo in the chamber plus an additional 1-2oz. per wash pad. We are now at say 10oz. of Car Shampoo for only one car wash. I had 16oz. of Car Shampoo (maybe...on the high end now that I think about it) that could be spread out over four washes. However, WW is in there, and I know I don't go through a whole 16oz. bottle of that every time I wash, even if I am using it as a touch up for the wheels, as a drying agent, and for the door jambs, fuel door, etc.

 

So, yes, that recipe is a little expensive on the Waterless Wash side, but seems to be even money or maybe a little better (foam cannon) on the Car Shampoo side.

 

NOW, is all of this necessary to wash a car the right way (foam cannon or foam gun)....NO. Will it make life easier by adding a little bit of lubrication to the paint while allowing the Car Shampoo to stick, thus less chances of inducing car wash damage? YES.

You're welcome. :D

 

I think it's hilarious that everyone was concentrating on something we don't currently have plans to sell versus the slew of new products I was using! Helps keep my mouth shut!

 

Plus, I enjoy sharing how I do things. :thumbsup:
