Certainly argues against coloured products. A bike will have many more nooks & crannies than a car too

I always use it, rinse, apply snowfoam and then give it a good rubbing with a sponge and rinse off.
If you just leave it as they suggest you don't get very good results.

Mate of mine swears by it.

However, why use it on a Ferrari?

The poor sod can't afford to pay the £5 to a an East European on a long derelict petrol station and now car washing site. :sad:

:thumbup: Exactly the same way for me , although I do use a hot wash of around 40c . Main thing , as said , is not to let it dry on the vehicle or it can stain .
I got my snowfoam and gun from a local pressure washer company (N.E.) and IIRC was around £60 including the fitting to fit to my Karcher pressure washer .

Last time I asked my butler to wash the car, he and the chauffeur both went ballistic, both stormed off muttering something about demarcation of labour and segregation of duties. :lol:

I bought my snowfoam on eBay, about £12 with a dispenser that allows it to be fitted to a garden hose. Much easier than dragging out the pressure washer.

A 5 litre refill is about the same cost.

You're right there , my Karcher is an old brute of a thing , diesel heater model :thumbup: .

i'm not sure if there are differences in quality or concentration but my snowfoam needs to be diluted by approx 20:1 so 5lt of snowfoam concentrate will do aroiund 100litres , enough for at least 100 washes

Lidl have their pressure washer on sale on the 1st March, £90

It includes pistol grip,
lance,
variable nozzle,
turbo dirt blaster,
foam nozzle with detergent bottle (snow foam lance)
rotating wash brush,
nozzle cleaning needle,
quick connector with garden hose adaptor,
10m high-pressure hose and a 500ml bottle of detergent

I've used snow foam on my bikes for years with a pressure washer (just don't go in close with high pressure) never had an issue with the electrics or bearings.

Rinse bike with pressure washer, snow foam, rinse off, 2 bucket method shampoo, followed by another rinse and towel dry. Then a little bit of polish and buff to the shine of a bald man's head at mid day in summer.
