Help washing with Worx Hydroshot

Hello,

I bought a week ago the worx hydroshot power washer cordless:
https://www.worx.com/40v-hydroshot-p...ner-wg640.html

I bought this tool because I live in apartment, and I don't have the option wash the car with hose and no shade.

I tested this tool in bathroom, and its powerful and I think it will be great to wash the car with this tool.

beside this tool, I have:
- 3x Jerrycan 20L.
- wash mitt Maguire's
- uber drying towel + chemical guys mammoth drying towel + 3 meguiars
water magnet drying towel
- soap v7
- sonax brilliant shine detailer
- Gloria FM50
- Brush rims

Which method wash you recommend me with this setup?
it will helpful me if you explain the steps I should to do.

Thank you

Cool, I'm now looking to get this machine as I've just moved and have no access to outside power or hose
Look forward to hearing your feedback on a car wash with it.

I have one of these and they are great for a basic rinse. However, be aware it will empty the 20litres quicker than you think if using at full power.

I use mine now for getting rid of dust and dirt before using ONR.

This is your method?

So it will be like this? :
1. Rinse first with hydroshot and clean water
2. washing the panel with onr
3. drying\ drying with quick wax

I have been using the Hydroshot for a year.
I would add a 2 litre pump sprayer and fill it with a pre wash of your choice.

Spray the pre wash over the car and wheels.
Then Hydroshot to pressure rinse this off.
This will remove over 90% of the dirt off.

Then a 2 BM wash with the shampoo of your choice along with cleaning your rims with shampoo and a separate mitt/cloth.

Then a final rinse with the Hydroshot.

Spray your BSD onto the rinsed car as a drying aid and proceed to dry with your towel

The battery will easily cope with this , but charge it after use as it will not last another such wash process!

I think to use the foam canon that came with hydroshot for the pre-wash.
How much soap + water to mix in the bottle?

I have the problem is the water will be drying fast and leave marks, because the hot weather.
Also in 6:00 morning its getting weather warm.

what do you suggest I do?
Or maybe let the water drying, and than go with BSD + towel to remove the water marks?

Can't give any advice with the soap dispenser attachment as mine arrived broken.
As for the hot weather, the only safe thing to do is wash early morning or late evening.
Or park in the shade somewhere.
