I never even switch to water, just 100% spray wax. The place I go to uses clear spray wax so doesn't need rinsing. I doubt it does much tough.
Lucky you. I went to the In & Out Car Wash and Detailing Centre and their spray wax setting wasn't clear, was a white colour wax. If I didn't switch to water, I would have been left with white residue on a black vehicle. Wish the wax was clear as you experienced.

I use the foam brush to lather on soap and clean the windows and side mirrors but only after spraying it down with the pressure washer.

I never use the foam brush on any other parts of our cars. As others have said, only high pressure soap, high pressure rinse, and spray on wax.

Another option to safely wash the car in the winter. I ordered one and waiting on it to come in the mail.

I wouldn't even use their soap. Just spray it down. Their soap tends to be on the more corrosive end. Spray down the salt. If you want to get extra clean. get yourself some WATERLESS wash and go to a heated public underground garage and give it a quick wipe down (with something like this https://www.ammonyc.com/shop/ammo-frothe-hoseless-lift/).
