Iíve used this today. Has a really long dwell time but isnít shaving foam thick clings really well and brought loads of muck with it when I jetwashed it off. Smells nice too. Iíll definitely be using this again.

What sizes does it come in? I'm interested in trying it but don't want a full 5L container

yes i have used it
http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...=401456&page=2
only trouble is it stays on the ground for hours after! but other than that a good foam

taken from autoglym site...

Before you start, check that the bodywork and wheels are cool to the touch and out of direct sunlight.

Polar Blast can be used at various dilutions depending on the density of foam desired. A good starting point is 100ml product to 500ml water in your foaming bottle. Adjust foam gun settings as required to increase or reduce foam.

Spray Polar Blast onto the vehicle, starting at the bottom, ensuring all exterior surfaces are covered, including glass and wheels.

Leave Polar Blast time to dwell and loosen dirt for up to 10 minutes, although do not allow it dry on.

Finally, rinse thoroughly from the bottom up.

Unfortunately I'm skint at the moment due to house Reno, otherwise I'd have liked to try magma.
