Is car paint fit for purpose, everything damages it. Don't use a sponge, you'll damage the paint, use three buckets or you'll damage the paint, use pH neutral soap or you'll damage the paint, everything damages the paint. I watched a YouTube the other day that said to avoid using any normal cloth on a car or you will damage the paint. If a cloth being rubbed on a car damages the paint work, I would argue that said paint shouldn't be on a car that drives upto 70mph on UK roads. I wouldn't paint a bedroom wall with something that would be damaged by a cloth, so why do we cover our cars in these puny paints that get damaged by an apparently inappropriate soap!

Not worth a £1. Only good for cleaning the shower or house floor. Bucket is a joke. Got this free last year, wasn’t worth that.

Saw this in Halfords. Its also on their website. Looks like it has good reviews and it's 5 litres! So I think worth a punt for anyone looking to get some more snow foam.

I bought 2 for £20 on eBay from turtlewaxeurope

oldskooladdict

Thank you very much. So this snow foam, do you use this as you would usual shampoo, or does it need a pressure washer or something? Not looking to spend ages on it or anything, but just get good results from the time invested. Your steps sound sensible, thanks

suhayb1009

To be honest one part of it is the snow foam but I'd make sure you follow some other basic tips. Don't use a sponge. Get yourself a wash mitt, ideally a lambswool one if you can. Use two buckets to wash the car. One for clean water one for dirty water. Rinse the mitt each time you reach for the soapy water. Dry with a waffle towel or microfiber cloth. Make sure you wash it when the sun isn't directly on the car and in a cool shaded area whenever possible. Keep the car wet constantly in hot weather to avoid water marks on the paint from forming. Follow these and you should have yourself a decent car wash.

suhayb1009

I can vouch for this too. I'm hoping the turtle Wax is a cheaper version that works just as well.

Just got a new car and looking for some cleaner, is this a good bet?! Old car we just used anything to hand but nice new shiny golf gte want to use something half decent!..

Sonus make some great products, just go easy.

TJS271182

Sure it did, that’s why they go to great lengths now to say it doesn’t on the latest product packaging.

TJS271182

Your not touching the paint, cutting compounds only affect the clear coat. If you burn through that it’s respray time.

Ciaran_Treanor

Tbh it depends on so many things. Some paints are harder and softer that others. Are you doing it by hand? Something like Bilt Hamber cleanser polish is excellent for masking light swirls by filling them and cleaning the paint without any real abrasive action. Scholl S20 Black finishes down very well and can achieve some good correction depending on the pad.

That's my day job XD when I bought my Black Range Rover Sport it was horrific with swirl marks. I'd have another black car just so I can machine it and tidy it up but they really are a handful to look after and keep nice.

Depends on how you wash and treat your car, as well as which products are used. This is generally used after a car has been fully de contaminated and waxed, to top up the shine and protective properties. But even just a basic wash and using one of these products will bring an element of shine and water repellency to any car. But it won't last very long, maybe a few weeks tops. There is no definitive answer. It's a case of trial and error. Hope this helps

Bradleigh

Water beads off if applied correctly and hardly anything to dry , mainly the roof (y)

You could apply it using a pump pressure spray bottle with a wand attachment to direct it exactly where you need it. Run the engine afterwards which will generate heat and evaporate anything left over.

I used about 400ml, which is quite a bit really, however my car is large (X5) and was absolutely filthy! I completely smothered it in the foam. The foam was £9.99 for 5l and so I should get about a dozen or so washes out of it...that works out at around 77p per wash :-)

Jaybeam

That’s interesting, did you use much of the stuff?

scad

Received mine today and used it this evening on the car. I bought a cheap(ish) 5l bottle of CarPlan foam wash and wasn’t expecting much, but to my surprise it actually worked really well. I had a nice thick coat of foam all across the car, left it for 10mins and then washed it off...car looks as good as when I take it to the local car wash. I can only assume that the negative reviews are from people using a cheap/incompatible foam shampoo.

cactusbrandy

Jetting dirty paintwork causes scratches if loose dirt isn't removed first. #1 schoolboy error in using a pressure washer. Same as when a sponge on a car scrapes dirt across the paint. They both contribute towards swirl scratches. You can't eradicate them entirely, but snowfoaming etc can help reduce the likelihood of swirlies.

For general traffic film, grime etc.. try using a citrus pre wash. Leave it on to dwell and even agitate with a soft detailing brush. If that doesn't work for bigger/stubborn spots try a tar remover. You can get wax friendly ones or Autoglyn Intensive Tar which is paint safe but not wax safe.

The snow foam and lance sell for £43 the pair. On Ebay, 5 cloths and 2 mitts is £20, so £10 for those. Meaning the jetwasher is about £60 for 135 bar.
