I have a modest Karcher which I think has a tube to draw on fluids :?

No you really need a Lance that you can control the flow of the foam similar to this

You need a proper attachment for your lance...…….. I bought this one https://www.shopnshine.co.uk/collection ... foam-lance
Then snow foam, I'm currently trying this one...…… https://www.shopnshine.co.uk/collection ... -snow-foam

Tried the Valet Pro stuff initially, but found the Bilt Hamber snow foam better; doesn't look as 'foamy', but just cleans betters.

I like using the snow foam, but sometimes find that it leaves a thin soapy film that can be difficult to rinse off.
This is particularly true when using it on cars that are ceramic coated.
I end up not adding any soap to the wash bucket, and effectively use it as a rinse.

Never thought I'd be discussing this :roll: Taking car maintenance much more seriously now I have time.
Thank you all for the info.
