Valet PRO pH Neutral Snow Foam:

I'm a relative newcomer to detailing and wish to share a problem and hopefully learn from the experience.

I first used this product with my HD Foam Lance and Kärcher K4.600 PW in mid-December before our second major snowfall. I experienced extremely poor results with it, which I put down to using a low concentration of foam mixture (only 1" of product in the 1 litre bottle).

Having read various articles about snow foaming, I repeated the foaming of my car today, but with about 2½" of product in the bottle topped up with warm water. The lance produced huge amounts of excellent thick foam which stuck to the car beautifully for around ten minutes but that's all it did! The dirt removal was absolutely ZERO, rien, nichts, nada!

Clearly snow foaming is an excellent procedure for cleaning cars, but not with the product I have bought, I am disappointed to put it mildly.

I'm planning on buying either Meg's Hyper Wash or Autobrite Magifoam, but I want to assure myself that I'm not doing anything wrong before I proceed further.

Alright mate,

You need around 2" of snow foam then topped up with eithr warm water or warm water with some APC like G101 or Megs APC. Autobrite Magifoam is the top dog or Cleanyourcar.co.uk have some on their site which is good!!

Hope this helps.
