Good performance but requires more foam solution than expected
on 21 April 2016
This product gives an impressive foam, with decent hold, but not at the dilution ratios listed on the bottle. I'm using roughly double the volume of snow foam in my foam/water mix to achieve a foam which is thick enough to cling to my car for around 5 minutes. I'm using a good quality foam lance from Autodirect connected to a Karcher K2 pressure washer.
The foam does cling well if used at a higher concentration, and seems to lift dirt well. I've used cheaper foams in the past and found that they often don't lift as much dirt, don't cling to the car for more than a couple of minutes or leave a cloudy film on glass & paintwork. Although I'm using more of this foam than expected I still think it's good value because it produces much better results than the cheaper foams.
As with all snow foams, this should only be used as a pre-clean to soften stubborn dirt and helps to remove grit without using a sponge (which would create swirls & scratches). Don't expect snow foam to be an all-in-one cleaning solution. My washing routine is to pressure wash the car with plain water to remove large debris, snow foam and leave it to soak, pressure wash again to remove any remaining foam and the dirt which it has lifted, wash with a decent car shampoo & sponge before leathering. This routine is effective for me, some may find it excessive, while others will spend much more time detailing.
