    Default Snowfoam

    Just Got My Lance/Foam From Autobrite Yesterday..Got Told This Foam Will Only Last 5/10 Mins On The Car...So Does This Mean That It Wont Do As Good A Job As A Foam That Will Stay On The Car For 30 Mins ?

    What Snowfoam Do You Use ?

    Yea, SSF only lasts 5-10 mins top's. The idea with this type of foam is to run off the car and take the large particles of dirt with it. Personally I don't find that SSF has very good cleaning abilities, so I always added some car shampoo to the mix. The idea with magifoam if to totally loosen the dirt so after the pressure wash its looks pretty much done. There has been many comments on DW stating its Wax/Sealant safe, but personally I think its a little harsher to your protection.

    So its swings and roundabouts really. Now the summer is here I'll be using Megs Hyper Wash for my foaming needs and keep Magifoam for the winter.

    Have you tried Magifoam khalid?

    PM me your addy and i'll send you a sample mate. My favourite thing to do with magifoam is to spray the wheels with Very Cherry then magifoam over the top, you should see the dirt it lifts.
