I've used Auto Foam a lot via pump sprayer, the cleaning is very good.

One that's been mentioned a few times but I've not yet tried is Auto Glanz Spritzer. That said I've been impressed with most other things I've tried from them so maybe worth a look...

Auto-foam is the best I know of. 80ml to 1920ml water is plenty for a normal sized car and the cleaning power is exceptional.

Those won't create any proper foam. There's a million brands of those, usually marketed for gardening .. they can be used to apply rim cleaner and such that profit from a fine misty spray, but it's nothing for foam. The foam sprayers look very similar, but have a special nozzle to create the foam. The system Gloria uses works best from what I tested ... the foam is generated by pushing the liquid through some sort of sponge pads inside the nozzle before spraying it out.

I (and many other forum members) use Auto Foam in a normal pump sprayer, as commonly available in garden centres etc. It doesn't generate any foam but for the purpose of a touchless pre-wash, this doesn't matter at all. You just need to wet the paint surface and leave it for ~5 minutes, then power wash off in the usual way.

Well, that is the purpose of foam. The idea is, that the stuff sticks as long as possible to soak the car, without the stuff vanishing too fast, because it was too liquid.
