How Do I Make Snow Foam Car Wash in Seconds?

Many of us feel as though keeping our car clean is as important as keeping a clean home. We spend lots of time in our cars and want them to shine. But, car washes are expensive and don’t always do the job as well as we feel the price tag should reflect. And hiring a professional car detailing service can be really expensive. 

Luckily, there are more and more products on the market for those of us who want to wash our own vehicles but still get the professional car wash shine.  

But even these products can set us back some cash and we may end up buying something that doesn’t work the way we’d hoped it would, and it will end up just sitting on our garage shelf, taking up space and the remaining will go unused.

One important part of car washing is the pre-wash, which is called snow foam. Snow foam is a thick layer of foam that helps get the surface dirt off your car before the actual wash starts. It also helps keep down swirl marks, which oftentimes occur when you try and wash a car without first using a foaming agent before the regular wash period starts.

Learning to make our own snow foam car wash quickly is not only affordable but easy to do. Let’s see what you need to make snow foam.

1. Mix Together Dish Soap, Water, and Baking Soda

Two common household products that work great to make snow foam are dish soap and baking soda.

The brand of dish soap you use most likely won’t matter, as most dish soaps are made with pretty much the same ingredients. What you are looking for is ones that are effective on grease and are gentle, not abrasive.

Same with baking soda. All baking sodas have the active ingredient sodium bicarbonate, which is a mildly abrasive compound that will help release the preliminary dirt and grime off of your vehicle before you begin the main cleaning of it.

To make snow foam, mix together half a cup of dish soap and 1 tablespoon of baking soda in a large bowl or bucket. Add to that mixture about 2 cups of water and then decide how you want to apply this to your car.

2. Decide if You Want to Use a Spray Bottle or Power Washer to Apply

The easiest way to apply your mixture to your car is either through a spray bottle or power washer.

Let’s look at both.

Spray Bottle

Spray bottles are easy to use and are inexpensive pieces of equipment to have on hand. They come in a variety of sizes and can be ordered online or at many local retail stores.

They can also be reused for other projects, especially if you are using them for snow foaming your car because the ingredients inside snow foam are all quite harmless.

Once you’ve put your snow foam mixture in the spray bottle, shake it for about 30 seconds to allow for all the ingredients to mix together. As soon as a sudsy broth begins to formulate on top of the liquid, you’ll know you’re ready to go.

Power Washer

If you own a power washer (or can get your hands on one) these are great tools for a job such as applying a cleaning mixture onto a car for a good, do-it-yourself snow foam job.

Power washers come in all sorts of sizes, strengths, and price ranges. Whether you use them for intense cleanings, like getting mold and mildew off your decking, or you use them for jobs that don’t require quite as much pressure and power, like snow foaming your car, a power washer can really come in handy.

Each power washer has different settings and specifications for power washing an item, based on its size, power, and how it runs (gas or electric). Using the same formula above for the foam wash mixture, fill your power washer according to the manufacturer’s directions and set the pressure according to what they suggest for snow foam washing a car.

3. Use a Certain Technique for Power Washing a Car

Once you’ve mixed up your snow foam mixture, and have decided whether you want to use a spray bottle or a power washer to apply it, begin the job by working from the top of your car and moving downwards.

This is important because you don’t want the foam to set too long before you start to remove it. You also want to avoid double-layering it, because the product on the underneath side could end up leaving soap residue if not removed soon enough.

If you are using a power washer, this situation is easy to avoid. Power washers remove the soapy residue left over from the snow foam more quickly than the spray bottles can.

Regardless of which you choose, be sure to work from the top to the bottom, trying to remove as much of the foam as possible. 

Remember…you do not have to remove all of it. That’s the job of the rinsing stage. But the more of the snow foam you can wash off your vehicle, the easier the next stage will be.
