Why you should “NEVER” use mitts or sponges with Snow-Foam application.

Article by AUTO VALETS:

Snow-foaming a car and then leaving the snow-foam on the vehicle and washing with mitts or sponges is disastrous to your vehicles paintwork. Snow foam is primarily designed as a Pre-Wash Product, that is applied to the whole vehicle and most importantly, left to dwell for up to 5-15 minutes, depending on weather conditions & vehicle condition.

The Snow-Foam is designed to agitate and lift the grit from the vehicle and trap it in the foam during the dwelling period. The mistake many car valeting companies and forecourts make is to use the foam to wash the vehicle thus washing with mitts or sponges that will be full of grit and this is how the swirls are introduced to your paintwork.


Swirls Introduced by poor valeting standard.
