Thanks for the info!

I think the HydroFoam can be used as a carwash soap, either via foam cannon or conventional bucket wash. No need to do a regular wash first. However, I bet if you were to do a regular wash first you could apply it using much less product and a bottle would last forever. Something like 10:1 in a spray bottle or just soak a microfiber cloth and wipe the car down, then rinse.

My buddy (who is a not an enthusiast) uses Hydrofoam exclusively After I bought him some. He just dilutes it to whatever you’re supposed to dilute it to, puts it in a spray bottle, rinses/wets the car and then sprays down each panel, uses a mitt to foam it up, then hoses it off, kind of a spray-on soap…

He’s a true believer, his car always looks outstanding, and is very hydrophobic.

Apex has been doing a lot of comparison videos lately. One has the new Turtle Wax Seal and Shine, and the next has Adams 9H Spray, and there were more than a few similarities, hope he does a head to head on those two. A few years ago I really thought TW's days were numbered.

Also watch these Auto Detailing video on Adams Ceramic wash and wax as expensive and overpowered detailer. I wouldn't have thought of it, but durability results looked fantastic.

12 and a half week update...

Reload is gone. Adams is still holding up pretty well.

Adams is on the left, Reload on the right.

I wouldn't say it's gone, but Adams wins for sure.
