    Some people may rinse first mate but i choose not to so the foam sticks to the car for longer. I always find if i rinse the car first the foam runs off the car so theres no contact time

    Best bet which is what i use get a karcher pressure washer i have the k3 or k5 series cant remember! then you can buy off ebay a snow foam lance to fit k series washers then its just a case of buying snowfoam again you can get it off ebay and away you go. I think theres some deals on here someware.

    Great, nice one. So you still hand wash after snowfoam im guessing?. Also do you blast the foam off or use that as the soap for the hand wash?

    I paid £50 for my snowfoam bottle and a 5 litre bottle of snowfoam. Quick tip ive been told if you fill half the bottle with snowfoam then top it up with warm water it helps give better foam.

    The foam disolves most of the dirt you can just blast off the excess with a non foam attachment from the washer if its really dirty you may need to hand wash bits.
