    Default Finally orderd my snow foam lance!

    Ive finally been able to justify getting one.....(i was bored and my car has a bit of dirt on it plus pay days just gone by lol)

    just wonderd if anyone has any tips for using one? do i leave the foam to sit for a certain time? Do i adjetate it once its on like get my mitt on it, or just rince it off?

    havent heard a bad thing about them so they must do somthing! lol


    Btw i got it from http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/ who i cant recomend enough. everything you buy you get points that convert into a dicount next time you shop with them, which is usefull seems im turning into a young detailing geek lol but hey i do really enjoy cleaning cars for some reason.... even other peoples!

    Will post pics when its delivered and the weather holds out!

    ta for any advice, Will

    Strangely enough I stopped using them when they ditched the discount code in favour of the loyalty scheme.

    Rain or shine you will be out there playing around.

    Normal method is put about an inch of snowfoam into the bottle and then top up with warm water.

    Then Snowfoam the car and leave to to do it's stuff which is to loosen the dirt, some of which will fall off with foam. I would not agitate it all as there will still be a lot of grit present but it is a good idea to get a soft round brush and work the foam into the areas inside and a round the badges.

    After 10 minutes or so PW the remaining foam off making sure to keep the lance at an angle to the car.

    Then it can be washed.

    I've ordered a lot of stuff off Tim at CYC and have always had great service too.
