Step 1 - Choose Your Snow Foam
The first step in using snow foam is to choose the right product for your car. There are various brands available in the market, but some of our favorites include Carplan’s Demon Wash Snow Foam Shampoo. This is a high-quality snow foam that delivers excellent results at a great price.
Step 2 - Rinse the Car
Before applying snow foam, it's important to rinse your car to remove the top layer of dirt. Grab your pressure washer and give your vehicle a quick rinse to prepare it for the foaming process. This step helps in maximizing the effectiveness of snow foam by eliminating loose dirt and grime.
Step 3 - Fill Your Lance
To apply snow foam, you'll need a snow foam lance. This is the container that holds the foam mixture. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for diluting the snow foam with water. The water-to-formula ratio may vary between different brands, so be sure to check the packaging. Getting the right consistency is crucial for achieving maximum foaminess.
Step 4 - Connecting Your Lance
Once you have your snow foam ready, it's time to connect your snow foam lance to your pressure washer. The snow foam lance should come with a connector that fits your pressure washer model. Double-check to ensure you have the correct connector to avoid any connectivity issues.
Step 5 - Spray, Baby!
Now comes the fun part! Begin spraying the snow foam onto your car using a good fan spread on the lance. Start from the bottom and work your way up in a horizontal line. This method ensures efficient coverage and allows you to keep track of the areas you've sprayed. By starting at the bottom, where the car tends to get the dirtiest, you give the snow foam more time to work its magic. Continue spraying until the entire exterior of your car is covered in a thick layer of white foam.
Step 6 - Wait...
After applying the snow foam, give it a few minutes to penetrate and loosen the dirt and grime on your car's surface. Avoid leaving it on for too long, as the foam can dry and become more difficult to remove. While it's recommended to avoid direct sunlight, we understand it may not always be possible.
Step 7 - Spray It Down
Once the snow foam has had some time to work, it's time to rinse it off. Detach the snow foam lance and use only water from the pressure washer to spray your car, once again starting from the bottom and moving upward. The snow foam would have softened and loosened the dirt and grime, making it easier to remove. You'll be amazed at how effortlessly the dirt washes away, leaving your car looking fresh and clean.
Step 8 - Follow Up
After rinsing off the snow foam, you can continue washing your car using your preferred method. Whether it's shampooing or applying ceramic wax, the choice is yours. Finally, dry your car using a microfiber towel.
And there you have it! Using snow foam to clean your car is a quick and efficient process that yields excellent results. With just a few simple steps, you can have a grime-free and sparkling car ready for the summer.
