Angelwax is one of many companies I have heard great things about over the years but never got around to trying any of their products. Recently I found myself in a position where I needed to replace my current SnowFoam (Gtechniq W4 Citrus Foam ) and was looking for something a bit different.
I have found the Gtechniq Foam very good and effective in its cleaning abilities, but this time around I was looking for something priced a bit lower, as I find the Gtechniq stuff to come at a bit of a premium – and at the rate, I go through products, this is likely to get expensive.
I Spotted a reseller in Ireland so I decided to contact them about getting a bottle of the foam to try it out. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Angelwax – Angelwax is a Scotland based manufacturer of products.
They offer a range of different products, from wax to shampoo. Angelwax is only one of a few manufacturers from Scotland!
What’s unique about Angelwax is that the company was set up by chemists who worked together for over 25 years in the chemical industry.
Angelwax Fast Foam – How to Use
1.Before applying FastFoam ( Or any other snow foam for that matter ), always rinse the vehicle with a pressure washer using cold water to remove any loose dirt.
2.Fill up your foam cannon with some of the Angelwax Foam solutions. The recommended dilution ratio for Angel Wax Fast foam is about 1:9 ( 1 part to 9 parts with water )
3.Using a foam cannon on your pressure washer, apply a generous layer of Fastfoam using the stated dilution ratios and ensure that the foam remains on the vehicle for a minimum of 10 minutes before removing with a pressure washer.
The longer the foam remains on the vehicle the more effective it will be at breaking down dirt. ( However, don’t leave it TOO long either –especially in direct sunlight – as you may risk the foam drying into your paintwork )

Angelwax Fast Foam Review – Is it Good?
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the fast foam! The foam, despite the lower dilution ratio than some of the other forms on the market was quite thick, clung onto the paintwork well and looked very good indeed. ( it seemed a watery mix at first but it certainly clung on and helped to lift the dirt )
I much preferred the consistency of this stuff when compared to the Gtechniq product I had used previously to this.
Note: Angelwax Fast Foam IS PH neutral so it is safe for you in conjunction with whatever protection you may be using on the car ( Wax, Sealant, Coating etc ). When rinsed, I was impressed with the cleaning power of the Angelwax fast foam.
What impressed me the most about this snow foam is that It’s well priced compared to some of its competition (it also looks great for those snow foam pictures you might want to take)
Give it a go you might be able to find a ‘better’ cleaner or a more ‘clingy’ foam but for a good all-rounder, I think you might struggle to get better – especially at the price.
Cleaning Power 7/10
Overall Score 8/10
I will definitely be picking up some of this stuff again – but more likely in the 5L bottle next time!
