Snow Foam Vs Car Shampoo Which Is The Best Product

Snow foam is a product used to cover your car in a film of foam using a snow foam lance connected to a pressure washer. An alternative is to apply snow foam through a sprayer type bottle. Snow foam is designed as a wash agent and a pre-wash agent, Snow foam is used to soften dirt, car shampoo is not. Car shampoo can dry out and leave marks on the bodywork and windows which will need more work later on to remove. Snow Foam generally is cheaper than a good quality car shampoo. A dirty car is covered in particles, some stuck tightly to the surface. Scrubbing the car risks smearing these particles into the body work of your car.

Snow foam latches to the surface and helps to lift the dirt off of the surface thanks to its cleaning properties. When the foam is rinsed off, there will be much less grit on the outside, so you don’t have to worry as much about scratches while washing. As the foam gently breaks down dirt and debris, your wash is much less abrasive. This is the most effective way to pre wash your car.

A high quality snow foam will cling to the surface of your car and provide a thick coverage of foam ,if it clings to the surface longer it will break down the dirt and will lead to a more effective clean.Most Snow Foam products advise a ratio of 1 - 100 but if you do put an extra 50 ml in it will not hurt.
