I have BH Autofoam in a cheap hand pump sprayer from Asda. It does not 'foam' at all. Does it still do anything or does it need to 'foam' for it to be effective?

Using leftover C5 on headlights/rear lights?

Hi,

A few months ago I coated my wheels with C5... I have about a 1/4 bottle left over.

Assuming the stuff doesn't 'go bad', is it a terrible idea to use the last of it to coat the head lights...

I'm in my late 30s and remember everyone washing their cars when I was younger. I barely ever see it now!
