    Water first, soap, then a short burst from the hose to mix the soap with minimal suds.

    When researching the 2 bucket method I came across the recommendation to fill with water then add soap otherwise you get too many suds, not enough water. So I tried it out, like it, and continue with it.

    All plan on how I am feeling and weather or not I have the soap right next to me. If I do not have it right next to me I will fill with water and then put it in and mix it up. Other times I will put some water in and then soap and then more water.

    I like some suds but NOT like when you pour a root beer and get tons of suds with 1" of drink at the bottom.

    When I fill up the bucket, I put the water first and then the gold class car wash.

    Soap first 5 gal bucket,place hose( without nozzle) in bottom of bucket and fill
    The pressure from the hose will mix the soap and by having the hose end under the water during filling you will get some suds but a full bucket of washing liquid and not have foam all over.
