    I started off with a jet wash to remove some of the surface dirt, and there was a fair bit, not washed the car for a few months. So a good opportunity to try snow foam.

    It went on ok, and I let it sit for 5 minutes.

    But, when it came to the two bucket wash there was a lot of dirt that the mitt was picking up.

    So after using I am not sure if using snow foam made much of a difference, I've even got some patches on the bodywork that have dried a little dirty. I know there are many mixed view on this, maybe the snow foam helped lossen some of the harder to reach areas?

    I will try another time when it is not so dark and wet.

    If it’s not been washed for a few months I’m not too surprised to be honest- quick Q? Did you jet the snow foam off before the two bucket wash?

    Yes John. Some on Youtube said not to get wash but to rinse, but I jet washed.

    I just turn down the pressure Andy but use the Karcher
    Guess your car was super dirty- the snow foam would definetely have helped

    Just a little gratuitous snow foam shot from the summer . I think it's important to remember that snow foam will remove some of the dirt to help your next stage of washing and help prevent some of the scratching , but it doesn't fully clean the car by itself . In the summer on a dusty car it makes a good job just by itself as a quick wash .
    I treat it more of a fun thing to do when cleaning a car .
