But despite the foam being good I still wonder what the alternatives have to offer, even if it's just colour / smell or something "super"
Rachel has a few different snow foam products available. Give her a bell.....

You could always try the Yellow one with was posted above.

Tempting

I have 5L from Clean Your Car to try out next as I needed a few bits from them and stuck it on the order but I may go back to Rachel for the next lot just so I can try a few out.

I suspect I'll be busy with it on Christmas day, I'm on call, can't really leave the house and insist on it being a white Christmas

Megaboost,

Do you notice a diiference in the SSF from Auto Rae and CYC, or have you not used CYC yet.
I purchased 25 ltr from Autobrite of SSF and not really impressed with it, possibly could be the dilution ratio, have tried various differences though happiness not yet come. I also add some Mequires Gold Class shampoo as IMO that is all that shampoo is good for.
What ratio do you use?
Unfortunately my foam lance has a 2litre foam bottle, so probably have to apportion the ratios to compensate for this.

Suppose this could be the excuse to buy another car and not a black one.

I haven't had chance to try the CYC one yet, I plan to at the weekend though, lots to do

It's this lance (that's L200's but mine is identical) - same as you I think but mine is 1L ?

http://www.megaboost.co.uk/supra/min...7/P1100357.JPG

I've been putting about 15mm in the bottom, top up with warm water, slight shake and then away I go - seems to work a treat. I tried a bit of Costco wash & wash in it last weekend but didn't notice a huge difference, I only used a bit though, more playing needed with the mix.

Yes, adjustable spray, black knob on top - Autobrite call it the "HD" I think, the eBay seller called it the same, pic above

Thanks for the speedy order BTW sir, most appreciated - I just need those hard to get Megs buckets now!

Doesn't seem like one of our products mate we have never done a 'yellow' one?? Sure your cat hasnt ****ed in it?

The new 'pink' SSF is a great product and as Rorton says 'it has great cleaning ability'..

What pressure washer you running mate? Remember a good (litres per minute) through your pressure washer means better foam

Mark, you handed it to me yourself, in a white 1 Litre bottle (think it was a trial version or something). Looked a little like flat Lucozade.

Maybe our cat just has funny smelling ****!
