Default Using a pump bug sprayer for soap?

Anyone use one of those bug sprayer things for soap or anything? I was thinking about picking one up for all my soaping needs (aside from the soap bucket)

if you're thinking about using to spray down the whole car...don't bother it will take forever. but works well for small things or nooks and crannies

....some users of ONR (Optimum No Rinse) will use a sprayer as a sort of presoak prior to going over the car in the traditional fashion. For soap, (personally) I would see much more usefulness in a foam gun (that you attach to the hose) over a hand-held sprayer. I use one myself (a foam gun) on occasion.

....viewing the properties of the image, it appears it is from Poorboys. I could see using that for things like wheel wells myself.

But using it on an entire car would be painful.

Which is why there are foam cannons/guns.

Actually on the entire car its not bad at all.

I perpendicularly like to use it in the middle of a rain storm for a quick wash....then you dont have to worry too much about water spots, let it drip dry over nite

....granted, I haven't used that foam sprayer but I do have high volume sprayers. I just don't see them as efficient enough for such a task IMO. Wheels, wells, engine bay, etc. are a different story however and I could see the convenience of having one of those for those purposes. However, a gun or cannon can deliver a lot more product much faster than a spray bottle.
