To Finish On Winter Washing

Recommended Posts

Tried to send this yesterday, but Bothy broke sound barrier and messed up Forum.......

Went on to Autobrite Magifoam page to order up trial amount, coz my stuff may be widdle. Instructions for use were to pre RINCE vehicle then apply blanket of foam, leaving it for at least 10 minutes before rinsing (so at least spelling corrected). It then goes on to say the longer the foam is left on, the "more it will penetrate" fgs.......penetrate whit?......the blessed wax......? Try leaving any foam too long on a warm day......you will be rinsing it for a week......!

My point.........have seen Charlie's results.....I will be applying it to a DRY UNRINCED car forthwith, may try the WARM wash method in the hope ma pressure washer does not emulate Chernobyl.........

I've tried both methods on both cars and I much prefer the results for foaming a dry unrinced body. I tend to overuse the foam and I'm down to my last half litre now. Yesterday I put a capful of shampoo in as well with hot water and the results were good.

I only have cold water available for the pressure washer.

Crickey Kev, it's only a car, stick it through the local car wash it is a lot less hassle at £1.99 or whatever currency you will be using in a year or so :)

I just thought the foam still clung but slid better on a wet or damp car, David..........let's face it, how many times is a car in Scotland dry when ye start fgs.......? Will try Charlie way and report.

I went off on a bit of a rant this morning and nearly threw in my post as a mod - thinking that somebody had been interfering again. However, there is a banner at the top of every page saying that there are technical problems and some data has been lost.

For that reason we cannot make assumptions about what has happened.

After the server work I understand that the back up failed so the last one was up to the 22nd.

Hopefully the data can be recovered as there were some good posts over the last few days and on a personal note I had 4 thank you's lost in the crash :crybaby:
