New Nilfisk and Turtle Wax Snow Foam

As some of you may have seen in my last post i have hardly been handwashing my car let alone polishing in the last 5 years due to various injuries. Now I'm back at full health again I'm really loving getting the car clean again.

I bought a nilfisk c110 and got a 18 quid snow foam gun from Amazon and managed to get turtle Wax cherry snow foam and turtle Wax "wax it wet" very cheap from euro car parts

Pretty happy with the results considering I have ran round the car as it's getting dark.

Cannot wait for some better weather to get some proper protection down.

Looking good...

Think the only thing that’s out me off the turtle wax snow foam is having to use neat, so not very cost effective, but how did you find the cleaning power ?

I didn't use it neat, I put about 300ml into a litre foam bottle and felt it was pretty thick and effective. It looks quite runny in the pic because it was towards the end and I was messing about with the knobs on the foam Lance

Oh, so 300ml and topped up with 700ml water and it was still thick and effective - good to know

I did put in a wee bit of cheap shampoo too but don't think it would make a massive difference

Going to try the TW snow foam again tomorrow so might try this amount as opposed to neat. I did 100ml to 500ml last time and it was very watery. Glad you got on ok with it.
