Or now you can just buy the dawn sprayers that shoot foam straight from bottle.
I've used Dawn dish soap (small amounts) and warm water to wash every vehicle we have owned for decades.
That shit's strong. I took some paint off a vent hood with it once.Purple Power for me. $7 a gallon a Wally World and can dilute to different strengths.
Another great way to deliver a blanket if foam of whatever the surfactant of choice is, is a hose-end fertilizer/pesticide sprayer.I’m a big fan of pump spray bottles, they are useful in many scenarios, camping and wrenching .
Dawn dish soap and the correct ratio of water agitated into a thick foam is as good a degreaser that I’ve found.
Be sure to get a thick foam with no water left in the bottle and you’re good to go. View attachment 314196

I've found this stuff to work real well in getting chain lube off the rear wheel, swingarm, center stand, etc.Please, anything that melts chain fling from spoked wheels. I'm going to try Go-Jo orange hand cleaner, no grit formula.
Castrol superclass is very good but pay attention as it too is a sodium hydroxide base.
Goo Gone is a citrus oil base. It will melt the glue on balance weights
