    Also his opinion on Valet pro Advanced snow foam is wrong as l have used it for years and it's one of the highest foaming products l have seen..... I tend to agree with Jons opinion on most topics but on this one as l find the cheap skate Bilt hamber snow foam is not very USER friendly as it's seriously low foaming and hits the deck within seconds of it hitting the paint the least foaming product l have used... l have used dozens of snow foams... For best results l mix snow foams and cpw with each other now..... And l use different mixes depending on how dirty a car is

    I haven’t tried VP Advanced snow foam, but if it is anything like Pre Wash or their other products like bilbery wheel cleaner, it will be good!

    I quite often over winter used VP prewash, rinse down and then snowfoam. Some may say unnecessary but to me came up cleaner using both as opposed to either

    The two of you agreeing to something @Bristle Hound and @jassyo06 - that's like agreeing on that Brexit saga

    IMO reviews can be helpful as long as you approach them with a degree of critical thinking. To me any review that starts I'm testing a new product sent to me by a manufacturer increases my scepticism.

    Similarly reviewers who never criticise a product get the same treatment as well as those who hail a major breakthrough. Most products are an evolution and we seldom see real ground breaking innovation. Even if we do copy cat products appear fairly quickly.

    What I think some people do is fall into the trap of confirmation bias. That is find a review that supports their decision to make the purchase. This doesn't only apply to detailing products

    The forensic Detailing Channel doesn't do product placement or is he sponsored by company... He spent 5/6 months getting this review ready to go a difficult one to review to be honest

    I can never understand why people want a cleaner that foams more as to make it do that manufacture's must add chemicals , the Bilt Hamber is water based and is the best on the market and used by all the detailers i know, i for one prefer results and the BH is the best, i have used it on all my cars for the past 5 years and i am very happy with its performance, i am not connected in anyway to the company by the way......

    I think people like the theatre of snow foaming, for them the thicker the better rather than focusing on what he product is intended for

    There are two types of people who use snowfoams, one who use it for its cleaning ability and are least or not concerned about the 'foaming' capability of it. And then there are others who like Facebook likes and Insta followers and for them 'foaming' gets them the numbers they are after

    Since trying the BH via a garden spray I haven't used any of the snow foam I have! It works better than snow foam and leaves less mess on the ground to wash away. It is a spray on wash off product, I'll always buy it from now on.
