There are endless arguments in the detailing industry as to whether or not "foaming" a vehicle is necessary as part of the washing process. Does it add lubrication, or is it all in our heads? Does it help dissolve the heaviest dirt and grime, or is it simply a placebo effect?
After spending some time with Actifoam Energy, we can say for certain that this step enhances the washing process and this particular formulation breaks down grime, leaving the car ready for a gentle hand wash. This works especially well on coated cars to help restore water behavior properties.
Actifoam can be diluted 1:30 and used as a pre-wash treatment combined with an MTM PF22.2 Foam Cannon. Interestingly, it can also be used as a bug remover or - believe it or not - a wheel cleaner for coated/protected wheels. For wheels, we recommend a dilution at 1:20 in your wheel bucket.
Actifoam is one of those products that seems unnecessary in your arsenal, since you likely already have car shampoo. If you give this a try, you'll understand why we love it and why it's so versatile.
