    I just ordered the Foam King gun from Ebay for $23. Any suggestions for the best product to use in it? Thanks!

    Any chemical guy soaps, I use auto workz gloss booster, citrus clean, extreme clean and wax (?) it’s purple. All their soaps smell really good too. Anyways they have a ton of soaps that sud up really well in the foam gun. I usually fill it up with water and add up 4-5 squirts of soap and keep my fail setting at a 3 and then after I’ve gone through once or twice I dial it down to 1 or 0 and get a ton of suds.

    I just got my foam cannon and the honeydew. How much soap do you put in the bottle? 4 to 5 squirts does not seem much. Are they long squirts?

    I just use Meguiars Gold Class in mine. Anywhere from 2.5 to 5 ozs works great and throws a thick foam.
    I have a pic of it posted somewhere here, just don't remember where.

    This is my personal favorite soap that I’ve tried so far. F35E02BE-8E50-43AA-A9F0-B7F1721524EF.jpg

    I always use chemical guys, right now I have the honeydew snow foam soap. I bought a gallon and really like it especially on my wife's black 4runner!

    For the money, you can not go wrong with Honeydew Snow Foam. One of the CG guys (forget his name) is now with Mastersons Car Care. They have a snow foam (Mystic) of their own which, based on the reviews that I've read, is every bit as good as honeydew, but currently is only available in 16oz bottles. I've been told that they're going to start selling it in gallons in July, so maybe then it will be economical enough to buy. There are some reviews/comparisons of the Mystic snow foam on youtube, too.
