I use the mr.clean deal for the past 2 yrs. and it works good but when going through the filter of the spray nozzle it has no pressure and takes longer to rinse it off.still like the way it works when it's done.

The wife and I used Kaboom that we bought at K-Fart, worked damn good. Washed boat w/ boat soap right after then waxed. good Luck, Wrink

Diluted Sno Bol = Unbelievable!!

I should have remembered, since I used it a few years back to remove some nasty deposits leaking out of my rub-rail.

Seriously, don't waste your time with anything else. This stuff wiped the spots off in one pass...

I did my Burban and my wifes black jeep liberty and both came out as good as if i spent the full time cleaning with bucket and sponge.....i will admit i missed a few spots on both trucks with this soap dispencer deal but ya cant expect perfection on this kind of work
I have a suds fetish and am convinced if its not super sudsy that I'd scratch the paint. I do use the gun for a quick coating but always use bucket too. I have never even used a sponge on either vehicles, I have a soft brush that doesn't scratch at all and cuts time in half. Its made by carrand and is made for soap and water flowing through the handle but never use that way

mix 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water and put it into a spray bottle. It should remove the water spots, but remember that it will also remove any wax that is on the boat as well.

The key to using a brush is lots of water, a car wash uses up to 50 gallons of water. A brush alone will scratch thats why the water running thru it is the best. I only use a wool mit, lots of soap and water, i spray the truck down first to remove any sand or loose dirt. I wash my truck at least once a week, if it rains even more often. On the spots I use city water but in the past, like on the boat, i use the vinegar idea and sometimes toilet bowl cleaner. 3M Perfect-it also works well. To keep it off I dry it after coming out of the water, wax will help make it easier if it dries.

I am curious to see what the filter life is. Thanks again guys..

the starter filter they include doesn't last that long, a "real filter" I'd guess 5-10 truck rinsings - As long as you don't try and rinse soap off with the filter option. The soap doesn't last that long at all, I use regular old Turtle wax soap from a bucket and Mr Clean for final rinse. NH well water is super hard and I'm sure I wear out a filter faster than most though I used it on my boat and that greatly reduced filter life.

I have been a painter for 10 yrs. Toilet bowl cleaner will work great on gel, but it will eat clear coat. The acid in the cleaner will clean great but break down the clear in the process. The only paint that can withstand acid is Emron, which is barely used at all anymore. Good Luck.

A sander or grinder work really well




Oh, did you want to keep the paint?
