Alps, photo below of my recent effort with the same ebay kit. Works really well and dropped all dirt off car. I'm no expert but your Karcher should be connected to water supply and on, the ratio I used in snow foamer bottle was 1/3 snow foam and 2/3 warm water. As far as I'm aware, the flow from the Karcher draws the product out of the bottle, agitates it and creates the foam! If you have a faff about with the adjuster on the gun you'll find a decent setting there somewhere, it might just need setting up from new Also an an adjuster on the nozzle itself worth looking at.

Thanks guys.

So if the water from the mains has to be connected to the Karcher I'm doing it right. I also adjusted the dial on the lance. I think I'll just add more liquid in the lance next time.

My car is embarrassingly filthy right now so the foam most definitely should stick. But it just ran straight off the car.

Yeh should stick for a good while. They say that you can snow foam instead of bucket washing but I bucket washed as well just to make sure lol One area the snow foam really made a difference was in the arches and the underside of car. Took shed loads of of road dirt, grime and salt off the body work and chassis.. That's where the angled lance in the ebay kit came in handy to blast it all off..

Absolutely no way then did I do it right. Once I snowed the car, left it for a few minutes and then hosed it down, it looked exactly as it did before I started... actually, even worse as it now has water stains too
