The Snow Job clean
If you have a pressure washer and our Snow Blow Cannon, follow the steps below. If you do not have a pressure washer, scroll down to the hand washing steps.
The first thing we do is snow foam the vehicle with a strip wash solution using Orange Agent and Snow Job. This creates a thick, luscious foam over the entire vehicle that breaks down dirt, grime and loosens harder, baked on contaminants. It also removes any waxes or silicones on the paint, to ensure a clean surface for the following steps. NOTE: You DO NOT do this every time you Snow Job the car! You only do this maybe once or twice a year when you are doing a full cleanse, clay and seal. For regular Snow Jobs, use 900ml water and 100ml Snow Job solution.
Set up your pressure washer directly in front of your car and connect the power and your hose/water to it. Don’t turn it on yet! We use a 9:1 ratio of water to foam wash and have made this super easy to work out.
Simply fill the Cannon’s bottle to below the “Fill Water to Here” mark (that’s around 800ml of water), then measure and pour in 100ml of Orange Agent, then top it up with the Snow Job foam formula to the “Fill Snow Job to Here” mark (100ml of Snow Job). We put the Snow Job in last so it doesn’t foam up while you’re filling. If you're not using our Snow Blow Cannon, each capful of Snow Job is 50mls, so two capfuls is all you need to make up to one litre of Snow Job mixture.
Attach the bottle to the Cannon’s screw in intake, being careful to not cross-thread it, then shake it well with your thumb over the adapter tip to stop it splashing out.
Now attach the Cannon to the pressure washer, turn on the water, then power it up.
For the thickest foam possible, turn the Cannon’s top blue air adjustment knob clockwise towards the “-” symbol. If you desire less foam or wish to use less foam solution, turn it the opposite way towards the “+” symbol.
Squeeze the trigger of your pressure washer till the foam starts coming out.
Adjust the Cannon’s blue end nozzle to find your desired foam arc. We like it around half to two thirds of the way between full fan and powerful jet.
Keep the Cannon about a metre away from the cars’ surface to cover it in a lovely, thick foam. Starting on the lower sections and rear of the car, working your way around the car, from the bottom to the top, allowing the foam a longer dwell time on the dirtier, lower areas. Let the foam sit and do its work for 4 to 5 minutes, gently dissolving the grit and dirt from the surface. Do not let it dry.
Remove the Snow Blow Cannon attachment and insert your pressure washer nozzle.
Pressure wash the whole car starting from the top and working to the bottom, cleaning the very back of the car last so the foam has the longest dwell time on it.
Don’t let the jet of water get too close to window and door rubber seals or other delicate parts like fabric tops, or emblems on the car. A distance of 30cm to 50cm away is always recommended so no damage can occur from the water jet.
Once the foam is completely washed off, use your best judgement on whether it now needs a hand wash or not. If it does, you can follow the steps below - if it doesn’t, you can go on to drying.
