Thumbs up Snow Foam Test

I received a sample of snow foam from K80 THANKS . The look of snow foam is a watery pink solution a bit like megs deep crystal wash but thinner.

I didn’t have any usage instructions so I just added 2 capfuls of snow foam to my bucket of warm water and used the hose to mix up the wash. The snow foam mix foamed up more than the nxt wash. I dipped my hand in the mix and found the wash to be very slick. I used my megs wash mitt and found the suds to disappear when I started to clean the car but the surface that had just been cleaned was very slick. The wash worked just like nxt wash with its deep cleaning power.

I had collinite on the car prior to washing and when I flood rinsed the car the beading reappeared. Drying the car was very easy and a nice slick finish was left once dried.

I will be ordering the snow foam as soon as I run out of nxt wash. I was very impressed with the slickness of the snow foam wash.

I would love to hear other user experience with the snow foam wash as I might have got it wrong

Thanks

I too recieved a sample from K80 (thanks mate)

I put 60ml into the Karcher Foam Gun (an empty sample bottle I got from Serious Performance) and filled the gun with warm water. Shook the foam gun to get it mixed.

Sprayed this over the L200 and got a good coat of foam, on a par with Meguiar's #62. The foam dwelled for a similar amount of time as #62 does too.

Had a coffee, then came back and rinsed. Wow, this stuff does a great cleaning job. Only a couple of areas needed mitting to get clean. The Snow Foam cleans very well, slightly better than #62.

Rinsed off, and the coats of #21 & of #26 both sheeting just like normal (so no wax stripping detergents in this shampoo) and it left a nice spot free and slick finish.

The best bit though, have you seen how much 5 litres of this stuff is, it's cheap as chips.

The #62's getting saved for the summer, for handwashing, this Snow Foams going to see my Foam Gun washes through winter just fine.
