I received the foaming thing yesterday and used it on the Jeep. Usually, when I wash the Jeep you have to take a wash mitt/sponge to it even if you visit a high pressure car wash. If you don't you will still be left with what I am going to call the road dirt. I used this thing and it removed 80% of that road dirt. I am sure if I went over it a 2nd time it would have removed the rest of it. We'll still have to see how it does on a dirty Wildcat.

Okay, I used the foaming thing on the Arctic Cat after the Jan 1st ride and the only thing I can say is that unless you want to use this on your personal vehicle... save your money. It's gray for foaming up my Jeep, brushing the Jeep with one of those long handle soft bristle brush and then hosing it off. But, the foaming action magically lifting the dirt off so you don't have to scrub...NOPE! As far as the Wildcat, the easiest way to clean it is still to pressure wash all of the dirt away and then get in there with a bucket of soap and water and a sponge and get to work. The Cleaning spray that Andy pointed out to me that you can get at the dollar store is also great stuff for spray the underside of the Wildcat to hose away the dirt/grime!

I used to get some stuff called Leather and Plastic cleaner from the car cleanup supply shop near my home , Like your stuff it did not do a great job of cleaning , but I did notice that if I cleaned it with the stuff when it was clean , then it put the nice static feel when the plastic is new , and it cleaned up much easier the next time . Your stuff might work the same to use it like a coating , not a cleaner.

Yeah, I think you're right. There is no short cut or when it comes to cleaning these things. If you want it clean and you want to do it right you just need to get in there and get it done.

I had high hopes in that soap canon. I spray some stuff called Maxima sc1 silicone spray all over my RZR before riding and it makes cleaning easier.

So did I, looks like we need to keep doing it the old fashion way. Cleaning is not really that bad! I start with an overall pressure washing to get off the mud, then I will use soap and water and a sponge on about everything I can get my hands on and clean that. Then I spray the everything underneath with the cleaner Andy steered me too. Let that sit for a few and wash that off. Then it's the cleaning of the cab, windshield and all the little areas that still need a little extra love.

That mud from the other day is like cement.  Hardest it's ever been to clean up.  It's always bad in the winter when the ground thaws out, but it sure is fun getting it muddy.

I spent $5 at the carwash on the way home, and my inner fenders are still packed.  Gonna bust that stuff out from under the flares with a screwdriver and try again.

I think it's all that little pea sized gravel in it.  Stuff kinda hits and gets embeded or something.

I ran into the same thing when I went to clean it yesterday after having let it sit for over a day. It took several passed with the pressure washer to get the mud to loosen up enough to drop off. My wife reminded me that they built houses out of mud in some countries.
