Smile I fancy a change, what do you recommend?

I'm getting very close to finishing my Auto Finesse Avalanche snow foam and I fancy trying something that I haven't used before I have created a poll so you can cast your vote as to what you think I should use next based on your experience. Please suggest any other product that I may have not added. There are so many snow foams out there and these are what I have in mind.

I go between BH Auto Foam and KKD Blizzard - BH is my preference over the winter

I voted BH Auto foam. Then the results popped up; and i saw just about everyone else so far also did....

I can't lie; i've only tried the Valet Pro amongst the other choices. But bought the BH based on great reviews the web over and the fact its very reasonably priced. And will continue to use it because it flat out does what its supposed to.

I’ve been a valet pro fan as the foam always seems to be thick and dwell for ages. Tried some BH at the weekend and it’s a much thinner foam for me. Still cleans as well but I like thick foam

Will stick to using bh as a pre wash I think

I note that Aldi, at the weekend, had a final markdown of £3.49 for 5 litres of pressure washer detergent. I don't imagine it would do much worse than AutoFinesse Avalanche.

I've got BH Auto foam and se it via a garden sprayer and works very well - going to try it via foam gun over next month or so.

Used and liked Auto Allure snow foam - but you can't get it presently...

Tried and like AG new Polar blast

Not tried AF Avalanche, so can't say if any of the ones I've used are any better...

I voted for ValetPro, but have just started using BH. Using it currently from pump sprayer as it is only lightly soiled. Being fair I think they are both performing the same for me.

I'll put forward obsession blizzard based on its dilution ratio of 15-20ml per application its hard to beat and even with the lower dilution ratio you still get a nice thick foam that will have cleaning ability of other foams with higher dilution ratios, the initial purchase price may be a little more than others but when the small 500ml bottle will see 25 applications even from the higher dilution

I’m most recently using Piste and Snowtime, both have a nice smell and give a good foam but can’t say I’ve seen a huge amount of dirt being carried off the car - then again with the summer we’ve had there hasn’t been much visible dirt. Both foam well , piste even more so, but when I exhaust my current stocks I’ll give BH a try.
