Is Snow Foam just a gimmick?

No, Snow Foam is not a gimmick. Using Snow Foam as a part of your washing process significantly reduces the risk of scratching the paint on your car because it helps to soften the dirt on your car and make it easier to rinse off.

The key to be happy with Snow Foaming your car relies on your expectations – you can’t expect a touchless watch. Snow Foam isn’t magic. It hugely assists in the washing process, not replaces. It is crucial that you let your car sit with its snow foam applied for at least 10 minutes and in the shade.
