I use a Garden spray most of the time if it starts to dry just mist spray over it with water. I use it as Foam now & again but don't try to get a thick Foam as other's have said it doesn't give a thick foam I cant be a***** calculating how much pressure goes through the lance. Saying that though I've still been impressed. I think it's great stuff

Only trouble I’m finding is people stocking it? There’s a few products I need a top up with but all the companies I’ve looked at the BH AF is always out of stock.

40 ml BH per litre of warm water in a pump sprayer, 2 litres is enough to go round my car twice. Then a quick layer of a decent dwelling snow foam to stop the BH drying out. Works every time.

Pretty much spot on.

Have yet to try anything anywhere near as good as a pre wash.

Pump sprayer for BH AF everytime

Have you actually tried using other products at the same dilutions? The vast majority of people go an compare at vastly different strengths. The difference between a 5% and 1% PIR is absolutely enormous.

If you have and achieved similar results that would suggest the manufacturers instructions for other products are very wrong?

This product is so dependent on individual things, PW/ Lance/Mains pressure, so working out your correct dilution rate to obtain the 4% PIR is essential for it to work as the manufacturers state.

I will be working mine out again as I now have a Karcher K7 so has a completely different flow rate to my old K2.

Once done, and yes it is a pain, it is still the best on the market.

BUT, it does not foam like others, and it actually doesn't need to.
