    You can experiment with different mixtures, If I am stripping the car of wax I use the following: 1 Inch snow, 1/2 inch Shampoo, 1/2 inch Bug and tar remover and 1/2 inch of G101. Then fill the rest of the 1l bottle with warm water. It is a big case of trial and error to see what works best.

    Depends how bad the car is mate, If it is just a quick wash on mine then probs not, I try and do a touch less wash as much as possible so if it is not that dirty I will just snow foam and rinse off. If I am going to wax the car after then Ill put all of the above products in.
