    If it's the Autobryte one it's about an inch of Snowfoam and the top up with warm (not hot) water.

    Dwell time is around five minutes. If the car is really dirty. Snowfoam it twice. The first time rinse off with the lance upwards (The foam will be "blown" into all the nooks and crannies) and the second time rinse downwards as normal.

    You can spray the foam onto the wheels and arches but remember to reduce the pressure when rinsing wheels and bumpers. Try and keep the lance at an angle. Not head on onto the paint when rinsing.

    Also clean the wheels as you would normally before snowfoaming. They are normally have the most dirt on them so if you do them second you'll be blowing crap all over the car when you come to clean them.

    I done the wife's Astra today. I used about 1/4 ltr of soap and 1/4 ltr of water in the foam bottle. And away you go. I let the snow soak in for about 10min's then jetted the car from the bottom up to get the all the soap in the nuck's and crany's. Then used the normal bucket and mit method.
