    Default snowfoaming??

    I know a lot of people here love snowfoam but is it really as good as they say. All the demos on you tube show clean cars to start with..why??.
    Before investing in lance and foam I would appreciate honest feedback from you guys.Also any recommendations on lance/foam..

    You still need to clean your car with a washmit after, it's a pre wash what's lifts the dirt saves you rubbing it around your paintwork when your cleaning causing swirls etc.

    I have had mine around six months and would recommend them.

    I was sceptical too, but having bought one a few months ago I have to say I am now a convert!

    It's really meant as a "pre-wash" I believe, purpose being to float away large particles of dirt or grit that would scratch your paint when you set about it with a bucket and sponge etc. To be clear, just snow foaming the car will get it clean, but it's not a substitute for a real wash. I tend to snow foam and pressure wash mine each week, but with a bucket and sponge job still being done every second or third week.

    As for type, I think you'll find many of us on here would recommend the Autobrite lance with their Magifoam. Thats what I have, and I can't fault it. There is a thread on here that will let you order it from them with a handy wee discount.

    Oh, one last thing. It's worth having one just for the looks you get from your neighbours and passers-by when using it!

    Totally agree love the stuff if you have a good coat of wax also helps the snow foam to remove and lift the grim. also it won't strip the wax I waxed my car in October and it is still beading yet

    Never even heard of SnowFoaming until reading this thread. YouTube shows some cool SnowFoaming - so cool in fact, I've now ordered the bits and bobs for my Karcher. Can't wait! Never seen a white Signum before! LOL
