Autocar product test: What snow foam cleaner is best?

Nilfisk 3 Step Premium Car Cleaning Kit

Price: £40.61

Buy from: Amazon

Capacity: 500ml x3

Like Autoglym, Nilfisk has taken a three-step approach with its snow foams, but the difference here is that you get all three in the same box set, which is claimed to be good for around 20 full treatments. We like the foolproof “add a capful to your foamer bottle and top up with water” instructions for use, and cleaning results were pretty good – if not quite up to the standard set by Bilt-Hamber’s excellent Touch-Less.

Karcher Ultra Foam Cleaner

Price: £9.49

Buy from: Amazon

Capacity: 1000ml (one litre)

This Karcher foam cleaner comes ready to go. You don’t need to measure it out and dilute it, or mess about figuring out the right strength, as you can use it straight out of the bottle. In fact, if you have a Karcher pressure washer with the right nozzle, the bottle simply screws on and you’re all set. Alternatively, just tip it into another foamer gun. In use, the cleaner is effective and easy to use.  It’s not cheap, though, as you’re only getting around 7.5 litres of foam.
