I have to confess to being a bigger fan of green star than snow foam. I think it cleans better and doesn’t have any noticeable effect on LSP. Living out in the sticks the roads are disgusting from all the farm traffic. I often just green Star then pressure wash and blow dry. It’s almost a touchless wash.

Yeah im going to go for greenstar and a pump sprayer. I'm not interested in the look of the product, Im trying to find something that cleans very well as my black car has paint that shows unidirectional wash marring very very easily.

Best place I have found for GS is in2detailing with Discount Code it works out very cost effective for 10l. I’ve bought a 7l pump spray from screwfix for not a lot of money and a lot cheaper than a snow foam lance. I think mine works out at about 25p per wash. I can’t rate its cleaning ability higher I’m a big fan.

Aye i've just got 1L for now. £5 for a litre aint too bad and worth a shot to figure out whether its right for me. Also bought a pump sprayer as per a recommendation from forensic detailing Also ended up with about 10 other items in my basket haha (and my car has been in the shop for about 3 weeks and I am stacked with work but at least ill have something to look forward to in a few weeks from now!)

like shine said avoid magifoam if you don't want it lying around after, I've had some on my drive for days after and only went when it rained! the worst foam I've used so far didn't clean the car at all just a 'show foam' imo

You could try using a pump sprayer rather than a foam lance to apply your snow foam. With BH Auto Foam, I find this method just as effective. Also, you'll be far less likely to get any on other vehicles, which could be a bonus with a shared driveway.

Sorry, didn't notice your earlier post . I've not tried Green Star but it does look interesting. Think I might just have to get some as well!
