  • Do you rinse off the snow foam?

    Random question, but before you start cleaning with a mitt and shampoo, do you guys tend to rinse off the snow foam (after letting it sit for 10 mins or so) with water? Or just leave it on as extra cleaning solution when washing with the mitt?

        Rinse, the snow foam removes a lot of grit and dirt, if you clean it without rinsing you are just rubbing all that dirt and grit all over your paint

          I think the whole purpose of snow foaming is removing the road grit grime etc away from the paintwork without touching/moving it across the paint therefor slapping UR wash mitt into the snow foam is going to trap it between the mitt and paintwork. That's my thoughts anyway.

              Tip of the day...haha

              Rinse off the snow foam and with what is left over in the mixture bottle (if any) use it on the car before you wash it

                          I only leave the snowfoam on the car for 5 mins otherwise it drys out and leaves marks. Theres also autobrite direct for foam lances and chemical guys no touch snow foam is very good.
