Stars + Stripes The ultimate touchless wash.

save time. save money. maintain your finish.

HOW IT WORKS

A 2 step wash that GETs YOUR VEHICLE 85-95% CLEAN WITH OUT USING MITTS OR BRUSHES.

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. 

No situation is the same in the world washing and 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. 

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare both soaps if using foam cannons and knock off any heavy dirt with a high PSI pre-rinse. 
  2. Foam STARS onto vehicle starting at the bottom of the vehicle and work your way up. Streaking can occur on polished aluminum if the soaps dry before they are rinsed off, so have your Stripes (step 2) ready to go.
  3. Foam STRIPES directly over Stars. Again, working from bottom to top. No need to let the soaps dwell. It's important to start rinsing while both soaps are still foamy and clinging to the surface.
  4. Rinse. Do not rush this step. The rinse is very important! Use high PSI and stay within 6"-12" of surface. Rinse left to right starting at the bottom of the foamed area. 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.

tips + tricks

  • Work in a manageable sized section.
  • 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(heating element) 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.

    Game Changing

    If you’ve ever had the experience of spending a whole Sunday washing your truck with a mutt and bucket, only to pull out into just enough rain on Monday to trash it, S&S makes it a whole lot easier to get back to clean.

    Game Changer

    I don’t think that they make it clear enough that you don’t need a high dollar wash outfit to use S&S. I held off on trying it for a while because I don’t have a big pressure washer, but I didn’t necessarily have to. Not that we’re not all saving for a wash bay and a high caliber pressure washer, but until you get there you can use a small electric one in your driveway and get great results. If you’ve ever had the experience of spending a whole Sunday with a mitt and bucket only to pull out into five miles of rain on Monday morning, this stuff makes it a lot easier to get looking right again.

    Amazing Products

    Picked up the Stars and Stripes pack and I am very impressed! The stuff works really well to easily get the road grime off both our vehicles. Will be getting the Snake Oil next to make that stuff shine even better!
