The pre wash phase of car maintenance enables the safe removal of bigger pieces of dirt. This type of dirt can often induce swirl marks if not removed before your contact wash phase using a wash mitt. Pre wash car cleaners will soften traffic film, dirt, bird lime and insect remains. Products are frequently ready to use, but application via a pump sprayer or foamer is also an option.
Snow Foam is also in the prewash stage, but this has a focus on getting into panel gaps and joints lifting of grit and sand. A PreWash is design more for chemically breaking down TFR and other greasy contamination found on primarily lower seals.
