Worth mentioning that on a windy day, the fine mist from a pump sprayer can blow back into your face. So if it's windy, I put AF through a foam lance. It's not quite so efficient with product (although if you're careful with your technique and just "wet" the car, it's not too bad) but that's a tradeoff I'm willing to make to avoid getting it in my eyes and mouth!

Lance I added about 2” off foam to hot water in the lance,,it foamed up better than I expected,not as much as the valet pro but it worked better.

I can't praise this highly enough since I moved to a pump spray bottle, the dirt removal is staggering and has really kept things simple during the winter muck. Now that we are supposedly heading to spring I plan to cut down on the snowfoam use for obvious reasons again and keep it for especially dirty driving weeks.

It’s more effective in a pump sprayer for whatever reason.

I have to agree, I was all for getting rid until I tried it I think it comes down to the dilution and controlling it where when I used VP PHNeutral foam it was far more forgiving in the lance.
