I use meg's hyper wash. It works out to be really cheap, foams great but cleaning power isn't super strong. If your only cleaning dust or mud of the car this works great, anything like bugs and i have to mix a little traffic film remover with it. Problem is this then strips the wax off but you can't win everything

I've used supa snow foam from autobrite direct and also the snow foam that autorachem sells.

I've also used megs hyperwash as a snow foam too.

I found the autobrite stuff very good, the autorachem seems a bit thinner.

But suprisingly the megs hyperwash is very good.  And as it can be used as a car shampoo (its main purpose) I'll probably stick with that in future!

So most people think the megs hyper wash is best?

Yeah. You can get versions that directly couple with your hose pipe, ones for your pressure washer (not just karcher), ones with a hand driven pump.

Well worth the money IMO.

Megs Hyperwash gets my vote. Expensive (22.95 for 5 Litres) but really thick foam that clings well.

For a cheaper alternative super snow foam (14.95) is pretty good.

I get most of My stuff from www.cleanyourcar.co.uk

Spent most of Yesterday cleaning my ride.

This is the order I did it in and the products.

I think I did it in the right order ?

Still getting to grips with having a car I actually want to polish !

Rinsed off with Pressure washer.
Snowfoam with Hyper wash.
Rinsed.
Hand washed with lambswool mitt (Hyper wash as shampoo).
Hand dried with Microfibre towels.
Clay barred whole car.
Rinsed off lubricant again.
Hand dried again.
Polished by hand using Autoglym SRP.
Waxed by hand with Collinite 476S.

Took the best part of a day and now I know why the pros charge so much to do it I was knackered by the end !!

Super Snow Foam is fine and makes a lovely thick foam. But after using the Bilt Hamber Auto Foam yesterday I will be sticking with it as it removed more dirt.

Some people argue that you should just attack the car with snow foam when the car is dry rather than pressure washing it first because
1) the snow foam clings to a dry car for longer
2) using the pressure washer solely on a dirty car could force the grit in the dirt to scratch the paint further.

but I think its a matter of opinion.  I usually just snow foam it dry.

Silly question Nr 1 - Once you've sprayed with Foam, and it looks like it's snowed, once rinsed off, does the foam rinse away easily or does it linger on the drive/road for some time?

The Polished Bliss offer is pretty good to be fair so may well invest.  Need to get some polish too.

Id foam it dry, let it soak, rinse, then foam again and with a mitt wash it off, rinse and microfibre it dry.

Yep, but is there much rinsed foam left on the ground?  Does it actually rinse away or just sit there eventually evaporating!

It goes away after a bit, I never bother rinsing it off the drive.
