CG Wash & Gloss mix in a snow foam lance

Used my AB snow foam lance for the first time on sunday, using CG Citrus W & G. Didnt quite get the foamyness I expected.



What dilution do people use when using this in a lance?

Gonna try again this weekend and want to get it right...

Thanks
Amit

Haven't got any snow foam yet. Was planning on using the W&G.

Produced the thickest foam when the mixture setting knob was slightly turned from the furthest negative point.

Maybe I'll try more shampoo in the bottle.

I'm guessing it's a foam lance not a gilmour as there's a pressure washer in the above picture..

I wouldn't recommend usin CW&G too often. The glossing agents mayeventually clog the lance, leading to it needing to be taken apart and cleaned. If it is something you use in your lance regularly, flush it out after every couple of uses with water.

I use CG CW+G through my foam lance when doing details where I want as much muck and TF removed as possible. For maintaining a finish - no. Foams up pretty good IMO.

I mix 2 oz + what's left in the pump-head when tightening it, with luke warm water in a 946ml bottle.


Kind regards,

Ebbe
