    Hahahaha bunk how much have you shelled out for professional detailing......

    snowfoam plays a part. The least amount of physical contact with the top coat the better. Yes its best used by obsessives. On anything boggo with poo paint just wash with 2 buckets and save the time. Or foam and aggitate. BUT ifs never going to be a foam wait winse and stand back in awe experience. The purpose is to loosen not clean

    Dont use a butt as a source without a decent filter. Otherwise you are basically sand blasting your car

      I'm not so sure. If the car's paint still has a coat of wax on and isn't caked in muck, many times a good snow foam left to sit for a few minutes and a rinse is all the car needs. Wheels will need the usually clean of course.

          Thanks Daveboy!
          I doubt I'll see you among the flock of 14 in another restaurant
          I've been told mixed stories about Reflect, but I must convince myself to at least visit the shop in the near future...

              Me too, never visited their shop but usually hijack (not literally) their van which calls to the local service station on monday afternoons. The lads are always sound to deal with and
              know their products very well. Also cheap for nitrile gloves too !

                Snow foam use on an old car not cared for is a waste of time.

                But for those that regularly polish and maintain the bodywork its a godsend. I had a white TME three day detail to take back yellowing paint to original shine..the snowfoam nearly cleaned the car itself forever afterwards.

                      bilt hamber snowfoam with an autobrite snow foam lance

                      Detailing Shed should have the bilt hamber in stock and a suitable lance based on your pressure washer. If not, autobrite lances from the UK are very good. but generally they are all the same. just dont waste your money on the karcher snow foam lance. as useful as a chocolate teapot

                        Yeah, BH Auto Foam is excellent. I'm nearly finished my second 5L bottle. It doesn't have a spectacular foam like some would use as a selling point, instead it is just a good cleaner. I've bought it off Detailing Shed. I think I'm going to try G-Techniq W4 next.

                          Also been using BH autofoam for awhile, very good cleaning power as KevC has said, let me know what W4 is like Kev, handy that D&D are selling it too.

                            Will do. It's very handy indeed. Half the reason I'm going to try it.

                                If you are looking for a snow-foam that actually does what snow-foam is designed to do i.e. clean, then don't bother with anything else other than Bilt Hamber Auto Foam - http://www.bilthamber.com/auto-foam There is no better cleaning snow-foam on the market in my opinion.

                                If you are looking to play with lots of foam and bubbles and not actually clean your car then have a bubble bath or buy/use any other snow-foam as Auto Foam doesn't foam up like traditional snow-foams.

                                The dilution is very important to get right for it to work properly. It depends on the flow rate of the pressure washer being used so will vary between setups. Bilt Hamber recommend between 4% and 5% but this is needed at the car panel, not in the detergent reservoir. Exactly how much you need will depend on how dirty your car is, I use between 3% and 5%. You need to fill your detergent bottle full of plain water. Turn the detergent feed on full then discharge the lance into a container until the detergent reservoir is empty of water. Measure the total amount of water collected. Work out 4 - 5% of the water amount collected. This amount is the the amount of auto-foam you need to use in your reservoir. Calculations for my particular setup are below -

                                13.5 liters needed to empty detergent reservoir

                                Converted to milliliters: 1,3500 ml

                                Based on 1 liter / 500 ml mix
                                3% = 405 ml / 202 ml
                                3.5% = 472 ml / 236 ml
                                4% = 540 ml / 270 ml
                                4.5% = 607 ml / 303 ml
                                5% = 675 ml / 337 ml

                                Usually a 500 ml mix will do one car for me.

                                In relation to where it can it be bought - I buy my detailing supplies from Dave @ The Detailing Shed - http://www.detailingshed.com. Couldn't recommend him enough - top bloke, advice and service. He'll sort you out with all the Auto Foam you need.
