    Hey guys, just looking for a bit of advice really, my dad bought himself a karcher K 2.54 this weekend, had a test with it today with the pressure washe on some garden furniture that needed cleaning etc, but haven't tested the brush head yet.

    Would the brush head be best used with some car shampoo in the bottom clear container (Not sure what Shampoo is best in this case?)

    Also, what would I need to full a full snowfoam on the car? I know the karcher would need an extra thing or 2, but I'm really not sure what, so any links would be appreciated :)

    The container on the Karcher will be a waste of time for the likes of snow foam and car shampoo.

    Buy your a snowfoam lance which are about 40-50 quid and 5l of snowfoam from valet pro, autobrite, bilthammer etc etc.
