Does anyone on here use snow foam when cleaning their car? Does it really make much of a difference?

Never used snow foam, but used snow before.

Only works in winter though


Sorry, seriously though, they say it's really good stuff.

Use it with a foam lance and use warm water.

you need a lance for it but as mickie has said its supposed to be good stuff.
however most snow foams are more a traffic film remover - snow foam was designed for washing wagons and aids the cleaning by sticking to the paint long enough for you to wash it off ;) - rather than an actual shampoo so can strip off waxes, sealants

as for does it make a difference not really. it more for non contact cleaning.
hose the car down with low pressure
snow foam - its supposed to lift the dirt off the paint work
rinse off

means your not rubbing the dirt off or scratching it off with the pressure washer

I've used snow foam a few times, i use Karchers own lance (which isnt brilliant).

But as said previous its good for getting rid of the main dirt and grime.

Get a small bottle from ebay and give it a go
