Collection: Snow Foam

Snow foam is a popular choice for car enthusiasts as it aids in loosening and removing dirt and contaminants from the surface of the vehicle.

To apply snow foam, you'll need a snow foam lance, which is an attachment that connects to a pressure washer and helps produce a thick foam that can be applied to the vehicle. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to apply snow foam using a snow foam lance:

  1. Prepare the Snow Foam Solution: Begin by mixing the appropriate amount of snow foam concentrate with water in the snow foam lance's dedicated bottle. The recommended dilution ratio can usually be found on the product label. It's important not to over-dilute or under-dilute the solution for optimal cleaning performance.
  2. Attach the Snow Foam Lance: Connect the snow foam lance to your pressure washer's wand. Make sure it's securely attached and tightened to avoid leaks during application.
  3. Adjust the Foam Thickness: Many snow foam lances have adjustable settings that allow you to control the foam's thickness. Choose the setting that suits your preference; thicker foam tends to cling better to the vehicle's surface.
  4. Pre-Rinse: Before applying the foam, it's a good idea to pre-rinse your vehicle with plain water to remove loose dirt and debris. This step helps prevent scratching the paint when applying the foam.
  5. Apply the Snow Foam: Start spraying the snow foam onto the vehicle, working from the top down. Ensure even coverage, and allow the foam to dwell on the surface for a few minutes. This dwell time allows the foam to encapsulate and loosen dirt and contaminants.
  6. Agitate if Necessary: For stubborn or heavily soiled areas, you can use a soft detailing brush to gently agitate the foam, helping it lift dirt more effectively.
  7. Rinse Off: After the dwell time, use your pressure washer (without the snow foam lance attached) or a regular hose to thoroughly rinse off the snow foam and the loosened dirt. Start from the top and work your way down to avoid dragging contaminants across the paint.
  8. Proceed with Wash: Once the snow foam and dirt are rinsed off, you can proceed with the rest of your car wash routine. This usually involves using a gentle wash mitt or sponge along with a high-quality car wash shampoo to further clean the vehicle's surface.

Remember that snow foam is designed to be a pre-wash step, and while it can effectively remove a significant amount of dirt and contaminants, it might not remove all traces of grime. Using proper washing techniques, quality products, and soft materials during the actual washing process will help ensure a scratch-free and thoroughly clean finish.

Lastly, make sure to follow the specific instructions provided with the snow foam and snow foam lance you're using, as different products might have slightly different application procedures.
