    As title says, can you use snow foam with a Karcher pressure washer, which has the lance pipe and nozzle? Is so, is there a particular brand that should be used?

    Just wandered if it might be a bit harsh using the Karcher, although of course you can adjust the pressure with the lance nozzle.

    I use my snow foam lance with my Karcher Pressure washer.

    It plugs straight into the Gun that the hose goes into, not the actual pressure lance that goes onto the gun.

    If you do go for snow foam, make sure you get PH neutral . The one in sparky's link looks like the stuff I use.

    With snow foam, once its on the car and washed off, is that it or do you still have to wash it with a sponge?

    Basically im asking is it as simple as just get the snow foam on then wash it off after 5 mins and that it?

    Snow foam is a pre wash to try and get rid of as much dirt as possible before you have to touch it with a wash mitt to reduce marring...

    look through this handy website it tells you step by step the process of cleaning your car properly..

    Trying to figure out how much of this stuff to actually use, per wash. I know what the ratios are, but how many washes would you expect to get out of, say, a 1 litre bottle?
