    Question Snow foam

    Does anybody know where I can get snow foam in N.Ireland, obviously can be got from autobright but I'm to tight to pay near £6 for 5l. Would be willing to club together with other's locally and bulk buy but am running out of ideas, currently using mix of turtle wax and meg's gold class not a bad result but not foamy enough (dosn't last long) .

    If your having trouble getting snowfoam have you tried Megs Hyper Wash? At £24 its not cheap, but for 1 US gallon diluted 400:1 your on to a winner every time. I used 10ml in my foam bottle this weekend and it was plenty enough.

    Its good enough for the pro's mate, also many Snow foams have no cleaning abilaty, there just a way of forming a stable foam which holds water for a pre soak.

    Appreciated but surley the foam also would lift away surface dirt in prep for main clean thereby making the chance's of schratching less.


    Is that a paddling pool for cars??

    The perfect foam would lift the dirt and then run it off the car. So having the foam cling is good as it dissolves and then it must break down and run off the surface and take the dirt with it. There is only a couple of foams out there with proper cleaning abilities one is the BH stuff, then there's the Autosmart stuff which by all accounts is very good but a bit harsh on wax, there are a couple of others but essentially most foams aren't really renowned for there cleaning abilities even if they do loosen and lift some dirt.

    Re the bath, I believe its for environmental purposes mate, as he has no dedicated drainage. I'm actually looking for a similar thing as the new drive is getting ruined as i'm washing all he sand away from in between the bricks and the drive is on a slope.
