Careful in this hot weather though. Let it dry at your peril!
Keep it cool and out of the sun

5 litre or a 2 litre or anything that can spray the diluted solution on to the car to 'wet' the surface - beyond that you're wasting it

I've had the sunny side of the car dry and when jet washed it foams up slightly as it rinses off but no issues with any staining

I have one pump full of BH AF @10% dilution, then another full of VP Citrus Pre Wash @ 20% dilution.

The Citrus gets used after snow foam and rinse in winter, to get the real crud off.

Then it gets used before the SF in summer, in order to pre soften the bugs on front end. SF stops it drying out too soon.
