What Is Snow Foam?
Snow Foam is a Pre-Wash product that helps to break down and remove dirt and grime which accumulates on your cars paintwork.

A proper snow foam formula will be design to cling to the car and work much better than a shampoo. The chemicals need to be strong in order to soften and decompose the oils, bugs, general road grime. At the same time it cannot be too strong that it damage any part of the paint. It’s important to go for a “true PH neutral formula.

Spray the car until it’s coated in foam, and leave it for a few minutes. During these few minutes, the foam should lift off the nastiest bits of dirt, taking the grime with it when it’s power-washed off. If you have a decent layer of wax (checkout our Deluxe or Exterior Detail package), the car may be clean enough to not warrant any further work, meaning you’ve achieved a ‘contactless wash’.
Snow Foam is not a short-cut to speed up your detailing sessions, rather an extra step to introduce if you really want to look after your car’s paintwork. Have a look at our swirl mark article earlier and you’ll understand why it is important to Snow Foam.
