b.h autofoam

Hi guys and gals hope you're all well.
Tell me, if i as to apply b.h autofoam through a pump sprayer,could i rinse it off with a hose.
Basically because i'm in a terraced house and the car is on the front,so hosepipe comes through the kitchen and lounge,which i can get away with but the wife aint happy at the idea of power cables as well.

Hope someone can help.
Regards.

For sure, will be better than no pre wash. Use warm water in the sprayer, about 50c.

My mum does exactly this for her car (she doesn't have a pressure washer). It's not quite as effective but still good, as mentioned use "tap hot" water in your pressure sprayer.

Definitely the key point here is to use warm water from the tap, will help shift some of the dirt as you're not going to use a pressure washer.

Used it the other day for the first time with a pump sprayer and couldn't believe how much crud it got rid of.

Normal hose will remove winter crud after applying BH Auto Foam, as for warm water I make up 5L solution in the sprayer and use it a few times over weeks with great results every time. Defo the best out their by a margin. :-)

Nails been hit on the head pretty well already. Give the car a rinse with the hose to remove any lose stuff. Mix up some autofoam at 4% with water water in the tap and apply. Allow it to dwell 2 minutes or so then rinse. Should get decent results mate.
