By sprayers do you mean something like



Viton seals work well against corrosive chemicals that tend to eat seals and gaskets. If you're a hobbyist, don't store chemicals in your sprayer for a long time. Transfer extra product to a cheap bottle that you've labeled. Flush the sprayer with clean water, let it drain out and dry. In the past we've used the champion one for several years with out issue. Now we've switched to a on-demand system for more high volume usage.

This is an unpopular opinion here, but generally don't by equipment from fancy hobby car wash suppliers, they're generally over priced rebranded stuff. It's not like there's a factory in China that makes brushes/towels/etc. just for youtube car washer celebs.

Mix roughly 60% baby powder to 40% isopropyl alcohol in a big spray bottle. The alcohol will evaporate leaving the baby powder coating.
Wash off with water after scanning.
Otherwise you can use an off the shelf spray like this.

Here's an example:


This one has an overpressure release at 60 psi, though that's tank pressure and not what's coming out of the nozzle.

For light cleaning I just use a sprayer bottle, the kind that go for a couple of bucks at the hardware store.

First off, congrats on the new car and congrats on taking pride in keeping your vehicles looking nice!

This is a good start I think. I use a lot of the same products. Your wash method seems good. As others have said, you may consider doing the wash using the "Gary Dean Method" as it's called. Just do a search on YouTube for it. Basically, you use several microfiber towels to wash with ONR instead of a wash mitt. This keeps your wash bucket from getting contaminated at all. In fact, I only use one bucket with this method. Very easy, especially in the winter time. For a traditional wash with a hose I still obviously recommend using two buckets and grit guards.

You may not even have to presoak the car depending on how dirty it is. If it is just a light layer of dust, you can get by without presoaking. If it is heavily soiled, caked on road salt, dirt, grime, then yes definitely spray it off first to remove as much contamination as possible.

As for sealant, I always recommend going with a synthetic sealant and not a wax. 845 is very good, but I actually use the Meguiar's M21 on my cars. It lasts about 6 months on my daily drivers. I've heard great things about Jescar Powerlock, but haven't used it so I can't vouch for it personally. My bottle of M21 has lasted over a year so far and I use it regularly on two cars.

The trick is to apply sealant and wax very thin. Just 2 or 3 pea sized drops on an applicator pad and gently rub onto the surface to make a slight uniform haze on the paint. Wait 10-15 minutes, use your fingertip to swipe off a tiny portion and if it comes off cleanly without streaking, then you know its time to remove, if not wait another 5 minutes. Buff off with a microfiber and that's it. Less is more.

As for APC, I use Simple Green all the time. I use it around the house, to clean the garage, my carpets, everything. It's pretty versatile and gentle. I dilute it 10:1 for vehicle interiors. It doesn't need to be very strong unless your vehicle is totally filthy. You can use it to clean tires and rims as well, just dilute it about 3:1 (3 parts water to 1 part concentrate). Personally, for exterior parts of my car I switched to LA's Totally Awesome from the dollar store since it's so ridiculously cheap and I can burn through tons of product and not cry about spending too much. But again, a gallon of Simple Green diluted will go a LOOOONG way. For the engine bay, you might want to use it 1:1 or even straight. It's pretty gentle stuff, so depending on how bad the engine bay is, you might just want to go all out on it. Just make sure you have a ready source of water because you will definitely want to rinse the APC off.

Since you said you don't have access to water, I'd suggest getting a pump sprayer. I use that during the winter in my garage to presoak my car before doing an ONR wash. You can also use it to rinse off APC on your tires/rims, and under the hood. These Smith sprayers are fantastic. Just use the high volume fan nozzle to rinse things off. Not as fast as a hose obviously, but it's portable. https://www.amazon.com/Smith-Contractor-190216-Herbicides-Insecticides/dp/B002YNSAGM

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have questions.

It can be a handheld sprayer. But, the cheapest sprayers will just have the solution come out in a cone shape, and you won't get even coverage. Just make sure It comes with multiple spraying tips. Specifically you want to use a fan tip to get even coverage.

This it's what I use and it's only $35, so it's still cheap.

They are extremely helpful, and they sell the same stuff the pros use. Make sure you get a nice sprayer.

I use this one for quick spraying around the house:

Look into it? LOOK INTO IT?!?! I've got my eye on you, A-A-ron. But seriously, as far as pump sprayers go, I'll grab the link to [the best pump sprayer on the market for the money](Smith Contractor 190216 2-Gallon Sprayer for Weed Killers, Herbicides, and Insecticides https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002YNSAGM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Bz-RzbSFYHBQP)

I use them in my carpet cleaning biz. I'm sure they'll work great for staining a fence. Spray a bit, then back roll it and move on to the next few pickets.

Some are poorly designed and don't last long, but I've had great luck with this one by Smith that's sold on Amazon.
