the touchless foam cannon kit

Chem-X Stars + Stripes when combined on the vehicle surface create the ultimate touchless wash. These formulas are designed for everything from the most high end show trucks and trailers to cars, motorcycles, hot rods, RV's, buses to construction equipment. 


Stars + Stripes

When Stars+Stripes mix on the vehicle surface, a resulting pH shock will activate the cleaning reaction. This dual stage process breaks the static bond of dirt and road film from the surface, allowing the high psi rinse to remove more grime than any single stage application and also results in a neutral pH. This process saves the user up to 80% of the time it would normally take to do a mitt wash. Using two soaps also lets us tackle more grime by allowing us to use a wider range of surfactants that help with many different types of grime. 

MTM PF22.2 Foam Cannons - 2 Pack

The Innovation of the PF22.2 Foam Cannon lies in the nozzle. This foam cannon offers adjustable fan blades & adjustable spray pattern (vertically or horizontally) as it throws thick foam onto your vehicle, house, fence, sidewalk, roof or other washable items.

Every foam cannon now includes 2 extra replacement Foam Agitator Pads, which are an easy replacement part that can occasionally clog on foam cannons, you'll be glad you have them later!


Before you start...

No situation is the same in the world washing & degreasing. Different seasons, paint conditions, power washers, etc all play a huge role in how you wash.

STARS + STRIPES arrives SUPER concentrated. Stretch it out or go a little heavier. This is up to you. Wash a small section and adjust your soaps if needed. Use this technique when ever starting a new wash.  


1. Fill both foamer bottles with 800 milliliters of water.

2. In one of the foamers, fill remaining with Stars.

3. In the other foamer, fill the remaining with Stripes.

4. Set adjustment knob on top of foamers to minimum, this will conserve soap usage and frequency of refills. If needed tighten knob toward plus to increase foam thickness and performance for extra dirty jobs or road film that has baked on for a long period of time.


1. Knock off any heavy build up with a high PSI pre-rinse.

2. Foam STARS onto vehicle, working from bottom to top. Work in a manageable sized section. Streaking can occur on polished aluminum if the soaps dry before they are rinsed off.

3. Foam STRIPES directly over Stars working from bottom to top. Do not let the soap dwell. It's important to start rinsing while both soaps are still foamy and clinging to the surface.

4. Rinse left to right starting at the bottom of the foamed area. Use high PSI and stay within 12" of surface. Doing this creates a line in the foam and lets you keep track of where you have not rinsed yet. Missing a section while rinsing will leave behind road film.  

*When vehicle's surface temperature is hot, pre-cool with cold water rinse before soap application.


  • Try not to wash in direct sunlight as this will greatly accelerate drying. When washing mirror polished aluminum always make sure aluminum is cool to the touch before applying soap and never let soaps dry. If it's too hot to touch we recommend a cold water pre-rinse.
  • Two things that help get an effective touchless wash is good soft water and also heated water no more than 140 degrees if available.
  • Ideal strength of soap is determined after seeing the results of the first section you wash. The goal is to use as little soap as possible while getting a great wash.
  • The coil in hot water machines create scale build up. This is normal but it can clog up your foamers. Avoid this by running your machine in rinse mode for 30-60 seconds before the first wash of the day. Basically you're just flushing out the line.



  • Foams well between 1,100-5,000 PSI 
  • Will work on 1.4-5.3 GPM power washers
  • Rated up to 140℉ water

      Does everything it says it does

      I use this on my truck and on my RZR after the trips to the Oregon dunes. My neighbor uses it, my brother uses it: once you see it in action, you will want to use it too.

      So far so good

      I just received my stars/stripes quarts and snake oil. I used it on my 2003 Ford F-250 and it worked great and saved me a lot of time as it’s a full size truck with an 8’ bed. As I own my own auto detailing business all of my vehicles are ceramic coated but this definitely did the job. I will be buying these again.



      Makes my day to hear that especially from a detailer thank you for using my stuff Darren!❌

      Excellent Product/Kit

      Purchased the Stars and Stripes Kit as well as snake oil. I have a big family so I am very time limited. With the S&S kit I was able to wash my car and my wife’s car in no time. There is a bit of a learning curve using the cannon, but that is to be expected. Overall very satisfied.



      I'm glad to hear it Juan thank you for the review!❌
