Product Description

The Griot's Garage Foaming Surface Wash allows you to safely wash your vehicle, without hurting an existing protective layer! Griot's Garage worked hard to formulate this shampoo for ideal maintenance washes. The pH balanced formula is safe on existing waxes, sealants and coating, yet strong on dirt and grime. The dual layer foam technology works in two ways. The primary foam clings to the surface softening road film and organic contaminants, while the secondary foam releases and carries the abrasives to the ground. This rich foam helps you reduce and avoid ugly wash-induced swirls and scratches. You can apply this shampoo using a two bucket wash method, or for the greatest amount of foam, the THE BOSS Foam Cannon. Don't remove protection when you wash your paint, use the Griot's Garage Foaming Surface Wash and only remove dirt and grime!

THE BOSS Foam Cannon Application:
  • Select the appropriate tip: Pink Tip - Gas Pressure Washer, Purple Tip - Electric Pressure Washer, Aqua Tip - For Maximum Foam.
  • Then screw the bottle to the foam cannon. (Tip choice using a Foaming Sprayer - Pink Tip, then fill the reservoir with concentrate.)
  • Mixing Option 2 - MANUAL-MIX: For a traditional RTU (ready-to-use) option, add the corresponding amount of Foaming Surface Prep concentrate to the equipped reservoir, then fill with water.
  • THE BOSS Foam Cannon: 1.6 oz, Foaming Sprayer: 2.0 oz, Pump-Up Foamer: 0.5 oz, Air Foamer Sudsing Gun: 0.25 oz.

From The Label

Product Description

Gently lifts and releases contaminants maintaining a Best of Show finish

  • pH-balanced to retain existing waxes, sealants, and coatings
  • Rids surface of abrasive particles to help prevent wash-induced scratches and swirls
  • Dual-layer foam formula extends dwell time and enhances cleaning action

Foaming Surface Wash is a pH-neutral snow foam for pre-washing designed to rid surface of abrasives, as well as synthetic and organic contaminants, eliminating the potential for wash induced scratches. Its dual-layer foam technology is designed to gently loosen, lift, encapsulate, and release contaminants. This super concentrated formula prolongs the life of all waxes, sealants, and coatings maintaining that Best of Show finish.


Useful Directions: Paint should be dry and cool to the touch. Select desired application equipment and mixing option. Maintaining a distance of 3 to 4 feet, apply from the bottom up using slow, deliberate, overlapping passes. Allow to dwell for 5 to 10 minutes. Do not allow to dry on the surface. Using a high-pressure rinse from the bottom up and top down, rinse all surfaces free of foam. Should road film remain follow preferred wash method. Dry using Griot's Garage PFM Drying Towel.

Phenomenal Product. The most foam I've seen from any soap. The paint feels very well lubricated when hand washing and it removes grime very well as a independent prewash. My only complaint is with the bottle itself. The neck of the bottle is prone to snapping off when using it screwed into the foam cannon. I wouldn't complain about it if it was a one time issue but its happened twice now. You'd think a bottle that is made for the Boss foam cannon would be robust enough but apparently not. not the largest deal because you can just fill the reservoir instead but the whole point of the boss system is to have interchangeable concentrated soaps so you don't have to empty and refill the reservoir frequently.

Liquid itself 5/5
Bottle structural integrity: 1.5/5

Another good Griot's product. I first tried it to deal with a ton of road salt and filth, and after making sure I had enough product mixed with the water in my pump applicater and rinsing before application, it worked very well indeed. I now use it weekly to deal with the effects of the New England winter. In gentler weather there's no need to rinse the car before applying, as the directions state.
