    Foam big or go home: PB beta foam soap review

    Poorboy`s Beta Foam Sample Review

    Thank you for giving me the chance to try this new beta foam soap sample.

    I had to dig up my ag foamster gun. Haven`t used it in close to 2 years.



    I get a lot of foot traffic when I`m working outside. One of my neighbors literally stopped by the other dau when i was working on the orange super bee and he dropped today for a 1step + wax detail and interior steam cleaning. So I thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to test the soap.

    I need to frame this review properly first... I have used this foam gun less than 10 times in my lifetime. I have tried only DP xtreme foam and I honestly don`t remember much about using it. I wasn`t a true Autopian at that time.

    How much to use?
    All of it! (4oz)

    Filled almost to top with tap water.

    The test subject.


    Rinsed then foamed. Had to adjust the slider to get most foam.

    Wala!

    I don`t know if that`s a lot but it sure worked well IMO. Grape scented foam, very nice.











    Thoughts-
    Smells FANtastic, I hope the scent doesn`t change but I`m sure I will like any scent they change to.

    Foam amount seemed quite sufficient, good enough I decided to skip the 2bm.

    I only added 1 bucket with a grit guard. I kind of washed with an omage to the Accumulator wash method, except not nearly as thorough I`m sure.

    The foam provided good lubrication for my lc wash wedge, foam block and regular chenelle mitts.

    Cleaned up pretty nicely. Rinsed off in typical Poorboy`s easy fashion.

    Good stuff.

    Should it be thicker? I don`t know. If making it thicker means ot has more foam, then sure I`m game for more foam.

    I used 4 oz because The Guz said he thought 3 would be better from his review. I didn`t really know what I`d do with an extra 1 oz so I poured it all in and filled to tol with water. Still have a little less than half left and i felt i used A lot of foam too.

    This made me remember foam guns are cool and fun. Yes I`m sure a lance is better but I make it by with what I got just fine.

    Thanks for viewing.

    Re: Foam big or go home: PB beta foam soap review

    Interesting. I`ve always wondered whats the difference between foam lance/gun soap and regular car soap (other than the smell and color)?

    I`ve been using regular car soap in my foam gun and foam lance the entire time. If I want thicker foam (like shaving cream) I just add more than 1OZ of soap to my foam lance and turn up the concentration. I always found the foam gun didn`t produce very nice foam more like soapy water (equally good for washing, but not as good for decontamination, IMHO).

    Thanks for the review.

    yeah definitely not shaving cream style foam

    but provided good lubrication and didn`t just run off the paint quickly

    I saved enough to foam my SRT (covered in Natty`s) later tonight or tomorrow
    I will try to get the video`s uploaded to photobucket and share tomorrow
