    I recommend Valet Pro pH neutral foam.

    Avoid 'Slightly Alkaline', pH neutral is the way to go.

    I have some Bilt Hamber you can have, bought a large tub but not a fan of it.

    I have a very basic review somewhere on the Valet Pro ph Neutral and it is very good. Very good panel time (how long it stays on the panel without running off) without drying.

    One thing that will affect whatever Snow Foam you use, is the quality of the snow foam lance. Even with a decent pressure washer, a cheap lance is no good. If you get a Karcher pressure Washer, I would NOT recommend their snow foam lance, as it's really not that good (I bought one and was very disappointed). Rather pay a little more for a quality product. Let me see if I can find the review I posted of the bottle I got...

    I use Autobrite magifoam, I think it's great but I've never used any other products so I can't compare.

    There's a Smiley Suggestions thread, so please feel free to add your requests. We're due for another update soon. I'm not sure how long it will be for the next one after this!
