Pre-detergent King Carthur Control Snow Foam
Been running ValetPro Advanced Neutral Snow foam for quite a while now, wanted to give KC Control SF another chance and must admit it cleans a bit better than ValetPro Adv. It doesn’t foam as well but still stays on the paint long enough and cleans. It doesn’t smell bad but I would have liked it to have smelled better, preferably as good as ValetPro Adv.

“I’ve never polished before, how do I do it and what should I choose?”
Dare to try. Make it easy, it’s not that hard. We recommend starting with an oscillating polishing machine such as Tokyo OP5. With this it is difficult to make mistakes and no matter how you polish, it will be better than before. This complete polishing package includes everything needed to get started. Start with the mildest combination of polishing wheel and agent. If it doesn’t bite the scratches, switch up to a coarser pulley, if it’s not enough, try a coarser polish. You learn the basics very quickly!
It is also possible to just buy the polishing machine separately here !

Polisher Tokya OP5is an affordable oscillating polishing machine. It has an ergonomic design, is relatively lightweight and is therefore also easy to handle. The Tokya OP5 has a 15mm eccentric movement, meaning it has a sideways ‘throw’. The throw makes it easier to get good results faster on large surfaces. The machine is well suited for beginners as it has a wide choice of speed, which makes it possible to start polishing gently and thus also safely. The surface temperature is kept low and it is easy to get started. Very comfortable and easy operation of the machine. It has a soft start function, which starts the machine in a smooth and controlled way at the selected speed. It keeps a constant speed, even if the load increases when you press the plate against the paint. It actively monitors and compensates for the effect – a type of ”
Padboy’s foam pads are designed in a unique way that differs from most other polishing pads in the store. They have rounded edges, which means that you avoid sharp contact with the parts you don’t want to be treated and you get a smoother transition in the places where the surface is not completely flat. The hex-shaped pattern reduces unnecessary extra smudges, catches excess polish and takes care of the polish dust that is created.
King Carthur Reshine Cut (1/3) is a silicone-free, effective slightly coarser polishing agent / rubbing, which works well even for the slightly harder paint surfaces. Used together with wool, foam pad or microfiber. When used with a polishing machine, you get an effective sanding of the paint up to P1500 sanding grade.
King Carthur Reshine Polish (2/3) is a silicone-free, medium-coarse polishing agent / rubbing, which is suitable for all types of polishing machines. Good choice for “one-step” treatment.

A polishing agent for removing holograms, polishing roses and other polishing defects. Leaves behind a very nice and shiny surface. The product is intended for final polishing. Used as the last step in polishing.
Padboys IPA (isopropanol 50%) is a very effective alcohol-based cleaning agent. IPA can remove stubborn grease and dirt stuck to the paintwork.

KING CARTHUR’S POLISHING SYSTEM:
Wax-dissolving pre-wash agent King Carthur Total Snow Foam
Very powerful alkaline degreaser for pre-wash and other cleaning. Effective solution-based properties.
Seems to work well, good foam and smells good. Not the same cleaning power as bilt hambers auto foam, though.
The winter crap disappeared without me having to rub.
Dissatisfied product is not so good
Seems to foam well, but a one-liter cork was a bit too small
Frequently asked questions about the product
27.10.2017 K , Hello, 2 questions: Is it ok for the varnish to use this product and then not shampoo. So that you lather on, rinse off, okay? Does this agent affect ceramic paint protection? Sincerely
Hey Kia! Yes absolutely. That is the idea of the product. “King Carthur Total Snow Foam” is a pre-wash agent that is used before hand washing to remove the loose and coarsest dirt. If the car is not very dirty, it is often enough to do a maintenance wash with just the pre-washer without hand washing. If you have a ceramic protection on the car, I recommend “King Carthur Control Snow Foam” instead, it is more gentle on the paint protection.
Autodude’s Quick Start Manual
With the use of pre-detergent in the foam lance, the agent does not need to be diluted beforehand, but the agent is poured undiluted into the foam lance’s container. The foam lance mixes and dilutes the agent with water directly.
Depending on the size of the vehicle, it takes about 1-2 dl of detergent for one wash. King Carthur Total Snow Foam works best when the foam is semi-thick, when it can sit long enough to dissolve the dirt and slowly drain off the car. Use the adjusting screw to adjust the dilution and thus the thickness of the foam. Spread the foam on the surface to be cleaned. Add from the bottom up. Let the product sit as long as possible without drying. Then rinse thoroughly with a pressure washer or garden hose.
If King Carthur Total Snow Foam is used as shampoo (for thorough cleaning), then mix the agent in a washing bucket, 1-30% strength, depending on the degree of soiling. Wash with a wash glove and use the two-bucket method . Distribute on the car a portion at a time. Rinse thoroughly.
Recommended mixing ratios:
1:100 – 1:200 = Cleaning on sensitive surfaces, interiors
1:50 = General cleaning, more resistant interiors
1:5 = Cleaning of stubborn dirt
