    Also, can you use any type of wash soap in the foam cannons? Or is “specialty foam cannon soap” required?

    Maybe a Padawan...:rofl:

    You can, I would just stay away from a soap with a wax in it. Also, be sure to run clean water thru the cannon. There is a small filter in the assembly and it’s not uncommon for the soap to accumulate over time and decrease the foam. Rinse tha canister well and fill it with plain water. Hook up the cannon and run it, maybe about half a canister.
    I will also mix some APC, all purpose cleaner in the canister, run that mix thru, and then a clean water run.
    Those filters can be a bit of a pain to change....

    Thanks Steve,
    I knew you would give me straight talk! Much appreciated!

    PermaFrost,

    In looking at CarPro's website I was going to try this rectangular applicator because the round ones didn't last long as you discovered and if dropped rolled quickly away! The price is lower too!

    Great articles.
    About to try some of these products (iron x, foam cannon etc). Is clay barring after the iron x necessary?
    My truck has water bead up on it pretty nicely but I am worried about the rail dust and especially on my wife’s white 4Runner. Planning on the following process:
    1. Foam cannon
    2. Iron x
    3. Foam cannon
    4. Hand wash with meguiars caranuba wash/wax combo
    5. Spray wax.

    Previously I’ve only used a pressure washer and simple green (if really dirty) or just a garden hose for steps 1-3.

    I’m just looking to not damage anything but aware that the above process won’t yield me a show-room quality Ferrari finish.

    The Iron X spray will remove the ferrous metals that you don’t see. It won’t remove the “ road debris” so you will have a little stuff left behind. With that said, your concern about the rail dust will be primarily addressed with the Iron X. Btw, the stuff stinks and make sure you read the precautions. Wear proper protection of gloves and eye protection. Not to scare you off but I use many times and I’m normal....maybe. The odor will linger a bit.
    Other than that, your process looks like a sound plan!

    Foam cannons are awesome.
