Foam Cannon and Car Wash

I have ceramic pro on my car and wondering which of the Chemical Guys car wash soaps would be best? I will be purchasing their foam cannon and ideally would like not to have to drag anything across the car as it's black.

Input is appreciated....even the sarcastic ones.

You're still going to have to use a microfiber mitt or something to remove the dirt/grime even after you've turned your car into a foam covered car.

Chemical Guys lists all the best uses for their car shampoos. Took me a while to sort though what would be best for my infrequently washed daily driver when I picked out my last bottle. Do some combing through all their different versions and I'm sure there's one for your specific situation.

Yeah, they have a cubic butt-ton of different varieties. I ended up with one that smells like bubble gum. My wife hates it.

I alternate between Mr. Pink, V07, and Honeydew. They all do just fine in the cannon.

Their Vitalize wash works great, and I believe it was developed specifically for protective coatings (e.g. ceramic)

Iv'e been using this in the foam cannon, then washing with CarPro Reset shampoo. Very happy with them both so far.

I wonder if there is a Mrs. Pink? Way too many choices and my ADD kicks in after looking at very few of them.



Thanks for the recommendations.
