As a car enthusiast, I’m always on the lookout for the best car washing products and methods. While looking around online, I found the Chemical Guys Torq Foam Blaster 6, which connects directly to a standard garden hose. They also have the Torq Foam Cannon, but since I don’t yet have a pressure washer, I opted for the Foam Blaster instead.
The Chemical Guys kit comes with:
- The Torq Foam Blaster 6 foam gun and spray nozzle. The Foam Blaster 6 has five settings for regulating how much soap foam is produced while spraying.
- A 4½–gallon heavy-duty detailing bucket with the Chemical Guys logo
- The Cyclone dirt trap bucket insert, which fits perfectly in the bucket
- A chenille microfiber wash mitt, which features a super-soft 70/30 microfiber blend to help reduce the chances of creating scratches and swirls in your car’s paint surface.
- A 16-ounce bottle of the Chemical Guys Honeydew Snow Foam auto wash cleanser. This car wash soap has a pH-neutral formula, which makes it safe to use in direct sunlight for a spot-free wash and with whatever wax you may have previously applied to the car.
So, I decided to try out the kit on the Austin Mini, for which I previously did a seat cushion repair. The Foam Blaster 6 was pretty fun to use, and I do feel as though it helped improve the car washing process. It’s a little hard to turn the dial to select how much foam you want to produce, but once you figure out a setting, you can just leave it in place. The Honeydew soap created thick suds. However, it seemed to take a while longer to completely rinse it off the car, which really isn’t much of a problem
The Cyclone dirt trap worked pretty well. The only thing I didn’t really like about it is that it’s difficult to remove from the bucket since there isn’t anywhere to grab it besides the little cones.
