A foam gum would work best, the suds would loosen the dirt to help prevent creating scratches during the wash process. Also misting your drying microfiber with some quick detailer when drying the car will help prevent scratches while drying.

I just ordered a Gilmour foam gun with some honeydew snow wash. Should be here tomorrow.

Hi I saw the CGuy Honeydew product, is it good for prewash or is it a shampoo?

Thanks for the advice

I just received my foam gun and honeydew today, after reading the bottle it is tailored more for heavy dirt and environmental contaminants and being sage for all paints as well as waxed and sealed surfaces and adding tons of foam to it hence the name honeydew snow foam I guess lol

I thought it sounded pretty good, being my car is filthy with all salt on it right now. I will be using it this weekend.
