So I mixed optimum no rinse in my snow foam...

Postby 3t3p » Sun Jan 01, 2017 10:28 pm

I always snow foam but found it more to be fun than help remove dirt. Till my new discovery;)

I put in two capfulls of optimum no rinse (its a waterless-wash polymer suspension) into my usual snow foam.

The car had heavy winter dirt on which I normally wouldn't expect snow foam to do anything on.

Except this time after the usual dwell time the power washer was actually visibly removing copious grime and dirt before ever touching the paint.

Try it, it worked especially well on the wheels.

This stuff gets under first, encapsulates it and lets it slide off without damage.

I'm now adding a couple of capfulls to my usual soap bucket too.

Try Bilt Hamber Autofoam as a foaming agent.

Actually cleans as opposed to "show foam".

Cheers I need more snow foam now as technically used chemical guys citrus wash and gloss as the snow foam in this instance.

Most of the dirt on car at the moment is actually salt. Even my local petrol station jet wash does a great job of removing it.
