Is there a car wash solution that suds up real good ? I know the suds don't help clean any better, but the visual effects are pleasing. I'm using a wash brush which probably doesn't help with the production of suds. You guys are probably using sponges or wash mitts I would assume.

I have a foam cannon. Makes all the suds.

But yes, a wash mit will produce more suds than a wash brush. More gentle on your finish too. Unless the brush is natural, like boars hair, I'd recommend you stop using it entirely. Synthetic and stiff bristle brushes are for tires and wheel wells.

Every kind I have used suds like crazy if I put it in the bucket first, then add the water fast. Usually to much suds.
And I use a brush also. My old back doesn't reach down to the rocker panels so good anymore.

you have to make sure the water splash really good for that sudsy effect...
a garden hose shower head will double the amount...

Merk,

Please don't laugh, but the rose/bubble gum smelly bath from Walmart's brand will do that like crazy....

+1 I love my foam cannon. Use it with a Ryobi electric pressure washer.

Well I learned something today. I had never heard of a foam cannon until now. I never really needed a pressure washer--but the foam cannon adds an incentive to getting one.

I also have an el cheapo one that I use for cleaning my siding. Lets the soap have a nice long soak and keeps the harsh chemicals off my car's paint by avoiding using my pressure washers's built in tank.

Look up foam cannon videos on YouTube. Oddly satisfying crackmeup

They're like $16 on Amazon. They're all the same though.

Chemical guys citrus wash and gloss! I do think Megs Gold Class is top notch but not as many suds.

I also use Meguars Gold Class and like it. It's not to expensive and readily available. It makes more bubbles for me than the cheap soap. There may be something out there that makes even more bubbles, but I'm satisfied.
