Best snow foam car cleaners 2022

3. Chemical Guys HydroSuds – RECOMMENDED

Guys HydroSuds

Price £17.99
Buy from or
Capacity 473ml

Nearly £20 for less than half a litre of cleaner may seem steep, but this stuff is uber-concentrated. We got great results from a miserly 0.9% solution, which is what using 2oz of the product in a foamer bottle of water, as the label suggests, gives you. As well as being good value and a joy to use, HydroSuds is a one-stop shop, tackling tough grime while leaving a protective ceramic coating.

2. Farécla G3 Pro Snow Foam – RECOMMENDED

Farecla G3 Pro Snow Foam

Price £7.99
Buy from
Capacity 500ml

G3 Pro Snow Foam neatly undercuts its competitors, which is great news considering what a good all-rounder it is. Technically, it’s a pre-wash, but it’s also very much a shampoo as well, and can even be sponge applied. It’s not a complete treatment like Ceramic Blast or Hydro Suds – Farécla recommends applying a separate sealer or wax periodically for full paintwork protection – but if you want a fast, very effective and pH-neutral foaming shampoo, this is tough to beat.

1. Chemical Guys Maxi Suds II – WINNER

Chemical Guys Maxi Suds II

Price £7.95
Buy from or
Capacity 473ml

Chemical Guys does a wide range of snow foams – with strong scents as diverse as Beer, Watermelon and Honeydew available – but this hybrid shampoo/foam is something else. We could enthuse about its ease of use, great cleaning power, mouth-watering strawberry aroma and perfect pH neutrality. What amazed us most, though, was how much cleaning power the tiniest heavily diluted drop provided. This modest bottle, with a very modest price tag, produces up to 120 litres of highly effective foam. In our tests, it was a clear winner.
