Polar Blast is by far the thickest foam I have used so far.
It's literally like shaving foam.
Dwell time and cleaning ability is fantastic! The second picture is after about 6 minutes dwell time. The only negative is that it is so thick it don't go away! It's still all over the floor an hour later!

I think it is 100ml foam to 500ml water so I went with 150ml to 800ml water. Next time I will just go 100ml to 900ml water!

Yes the cleaning power is brilliant!

Cheers mate, be interested to see if diluting it some more effects the cleaning power from it, other than just the thickness of it ?

I think the dwell time clearly helps with the cleaning! The longer something sits on the panel the more it will soften the dirt/grime on the car.

I like it!

Cheers.

On my list to try out - think I'll wait to see when Halfords have a 3 for 2 and pick some up with some of their other new products to try outs

Iíve used Polar Blast for the first time this weekend and Iím massivley impressed. I used 100ml with 500ml of water. The cling time was impressive but I know thatís not the ultimate aim, it gave me enough time to prepare my buckets and other products. I rinsed it off after about ten minutes and found very little muck left behind. Iíd go as far as saying itís the best foam pre wash I have used. As others have said, it did hang around on the drive for a while, I always drain the hose anyway so after stopping the flow of water into the hose, I used the remaining water in the PW to rinse the drive which got rid of the foam 👍🏻
