Dodo Juice Snow Foam Kit
This Dodo Juice Snow Foam Kit Contains:
1 x Dodo Juice Snow Commotion - Snow Lance with Karcher K
1 x Dodo Juice Apple iFoam - 1 litre
The Snow Commotion is made of brass, with a 1 litre dosing bottle and adjustments for mixture (top knob), blade compression (twistable nozzle) and even spray orientation (vertical, horizontal or anything in-between).
There is a Karcher K-series connector as standard (buy a different adaptor separately and in addition to the K-series one if you need to) and also a special quick release mechanism. This works with a lot of stubby pressure washer guns, or just use it to quickly detach the lance for fill ups etc.
Being a v2 lance design, it also features a wide mouth for easy filling of the 1 litre bottle, graduated markings to the bottle inc dilution ratios, and it's more stable with a wider base, too.
Attach it to a decent pressure washer (we have a Karcher K2 as a basic machine in our bay and this 110 bar machine works well, assuming good water pressure/flow as input - 130 bar machines will do even better), and it will result in thick, shaving-cream-like foam - assuming the right snow foam (Apple iFoam, iFoam Max) and the right lance settings. Soft water will foam even more.
- Choose between the standard Snow Commotion, a Snow Commotion and 100ml Apple iFoam tester, or a Snow Commotion with 1 litre/2 litres of snow foam (Apple iFoam pH-neutral foam or iFoam Max intensive TFR snow foam for max cleaning).
- If you do not have a Karcher K-series pressure washer you will need to buy the right connector/adapter IN ADDITION to the K-series one, or source one yourself from eBay etc. (female G1/4" fitment required).
Some assembly is required but we include PTFE tape and instructions with all kits. Just grab a spanner/wrench to carefully tighten everything up.
Please note: if the foam is watery and your lance settings, snow foam concentration, pressure washer and water supply seem fine, check that the lance diptube is properly attached and not blocked by being stuck against the side of the lance bottle. And after every use, rinse the foam lance thoroughly by running 1 litre of water through it as if it was snow foam solution - this is critical if any sealant or drying aid is used (we do not recommend the use of lance based sealants and drying aids for this reason). Hard water, sealants and other contaminants can block the mesh filter (spare part available at extra cost, contact us for details).

Snow foams are fantastic to use as a pre-wash or for contactless washes on lightly soiled (but heavily protected) cars. With a rich, thick lather, snow foam has far longer to act on the bodywork than traditional shampoos (note that a specialist snow foam lance will be required for best results, but some standard foam guns may prove adequate).
Apple iFoam is pH-neutral to preserve previously-applied wax or sealant layers, and helps to loosen, soften and remove dirt BEFORE the main wash. This is another step towards eradicating swirl marks from your detailing regime, as there will be less dirt on the panel when you make contact with a mitt or wash sponge.
You can see the dirt removed by checking the thick, white lather turn brown as it pulls dirt from the vehicle. But do not expect heavy soil removal – considering using a more aggressive caustic snow foam for more cleaning performance, and even then, a careful twin bucket wash will usually be required on daily driven cars.
If attempting a contactless wash, please note that a full contactless wash may only be possible if the vehicle is heavily protected, has little contamination on it and is then going to be rinsed with filtered 0ppm water or a contactless drying technique (like an air blower). We don't recommend contactless washes as a general rule, whether snow foam is used or not...
For heavier contamination, use a caustic snow foam as mentioned previously, or step up to Crudzilla citrus TFR as a far stronger pre-wash - applied by spray to the lower half of the car, or heavily soiled areas. Snow foam has its limitations. But then again, those TFRs won't be nice to previously applied wax layers...
