1 inch of foam with about a cm of citrus pre wash in a snow foam lance mixed with warm water, essentially a touch less wash as no dirt is left behind!!

I snow foam first with citrus and let that drip off and then use snow foam and then jet wash of.

Used Valet Pro Advanced Neutral Snow Foam for the last year, 2 inches of product mixed with warm water to the top of my lance bottle. Spray on, walk round the car and agitate and harder to reach areas (Grills, around bages and sills) then spray any left over product on and leave to dwell for few minutes before jet washing off.

Been reccommended to try Bilt Hamber Snow Foam by alot of people now so will be my next purchase.
