Only an idiot would use a brush on paintwork
I have a medium sized car, it seems to take me huge amounts of mains water to clean it properly. How many times are you going to have to fill an 8 litre sprayer to wash a "larger SUV"?

That said this would be useful to feed my hanging baskets, so long as 8l is a true capacity.

It's for wheels.
These are ideal for anyone who does a bit of MTB. Bit of muc off and a quick blast with this gets most of the loose stuff off.

Thanks OP If you do not have a Dyas store near you and are happy with just a 5 litre spray then have a look at this for £9.41 I bought one last week and you even get a spare set of rubber seals FREE POSTAGE ffx.co.uk/too…Ltr

Doesn't look like a typical wheel brush to me as they're normally more cylindrical in shape to get between the spokes etc. Anyway, i'd be surprised if 8 litres was enough for washing medium/large vehicle, other than just to spray it down afterwards.

The hot shampoo in the Morrisons pressure car wash uses a brush, plus most car shops sell long and short handle ones.

Ideal for the Romanians to grind dirt into the paintwork at my local Sainsbury's!
Is this the same as a pressure sprayer?
The sprayer is usually used for chemicals, like Traffic Film Remover (TFR)

Which cling on to grit, which then does a nice job of scratching the paint.

No, it's hand pumped to low pressure compared to the electric ones and more for spraying shampoo on, or for wheels.

Do sponges do this less? I've always used the automatic car washes but now I have a black car I worry more about scratches!

So what you do is get this sprayer, mix up a TFR or Snow Foam solution (Bilt Hamber Auto Foam is the best - dont worry about the foaming - it doesn't affect the cleaning ability) and spray it on the car and pressure wash off. That is what this type of sprayer is for. This gets 95% of the grime off. Then wash with the two bucket method with a proper high quality mitt and a good shampoo like from Dodo Juice (e.g. born to be mild).
That will minimise damaging the paint surface.

But give it a good polish and wax and the dirt won't stick as badly in the first place.

No, but if they drop on the floor, I throw them away, or just use them for wheels.

People are used to having brushes on the floor, so don't think twice about it.
this is the kind of item you'll buy...use once and then it will collect dust in a cupboard or shed or in a garage.

Whyyyy? ...because you'll find that a bucket of warm water with a squirt of fairy liquid in works fine.... this is a weed sprayer that been put in a different box...
