Snow Foam & Pre Wash Advice

Running low on snow foam now so looking at what route to go down next.
Have been using Valet Pro Advanced Neutral Snow Foam for the last year or so and found it pretty weak, doesnt seem to shift much and also sems to dry on the car in minutes leaving streaks behind even after the car is washed and dried.

I'm after some advice on which foam to go for next and also whether I should get some TFR or Citrus Pre Wash to mix in with it aswell for extra cleaning power?

I have a black car so looking to remove as much dirt as I can before I have to touch it.

TIA

Try Bilt Hamber Auto-Foam, cleans so well you'll be fine without a prewash. Doesn't produce loads of foam but is very effective cleaning wise.

+1 for Bilt Hamber Auto-Foam, as said it doesn't produce vast amounts of foam, but you can see the dirt being removed if you watch it. I personally would only use a prewash if the car is heavily soiled, or just use slightly more snow foam, maybe a second hit after the first has been rinsed.

Bh snow foam is safe mate.
I have used it for years though a lance but now use it through a pump sprayer. Seems to clean better though the pump sprayer and you use less product as well.

All in all i think it is the best foam by along why.
