Foam cannons are amazing

My whale shark hadn't had a bath since Hurricane Laura hit. Crazy busy and had the guys that wash my other cars get this thing cleaned up. Hooooly crap. I never knew how awesome these car cleaning products and foam cannons are.

Ok... I was slow to get it at first. Yep. The textured wrap holds dirt badly and this pic makes it look clean compared to what it looked in person.

Yeah, prior owner had them on without the rubber buffer behind. The interesting thing is how much a wrap exaggerates imperfections.

I gave up on the Cannon and started using a garden sprayer. I had trouble actually having time to scrub before the sudz would disappear.

My wife runs through the auto wash once a week to keep the Jeep lookin shiny, but it still isn't as thorough as a good scrubbing. I might look into a cannon because I'm old and gradually getting more and more lazy.

Extendible brush here. My truck is typical 95 dodge paint and loses a lot during washing so I don’t get to fancy.

Now them 17’s I keep clean.
