Perhaps turn it inside out. How did the inside get wet? You didn't machine wash it did you? Is it wet just from use in the bucket? I think mine stayed dry inside. Can I put any more questions in this post? What do you think? Can I keep going and going...?

I soon got tired of my wookie and went back to a Megs microfibre.

yes i put the whole thing in the bucket , next time I will try and keep the inside from getting wet, I tried turn it inside out but the neck is to tight and i cant do it. oh well I guess it will just have to sit on the radiator untill it dries out.

change of subject but how the hell do you get the inside of a wookies fist dry?
Ive used mine once dried the outside ok but the inside is taking forever, 3 days since i used it and it started to smell like someone has pi**ed in it, ive had it on top of the radiator etc


Same problem with sheepskin mitts, a bugger to get dry on the inside.
I've no experience of the Wookiee's Fist :blink: but the best way to get a sheepskin mitt dry is to keep it open with something like a roll of sellotape inside the cuff & hang it up to dry. Still takes days to dry though.

Hi everyone,
I've decided to splash out on a snow foam lance. Could someone suggest a reasonably priced one and some snow foam solution to go with it?

I thought this was ok... does anyone have any thoughts on it?
I4D Lance

Thanks

From what i've read he recommends the snow foam and citrus somethingorother from 14d themselves.

I think that's what Dan uses also :)

<whispers> that is the autobrite lance, but under I4D's banner...

It's a cracker.

It's also more expensive (but after FOCX discount its 44.35)... it is in stock though :D

Which snow foam do you use Dan?

(I'm gonna buy a foam lance next month *sigh*)

I use two types - both I4D's own. The citrus one is harsh enough to irritate un gloved hands, so I use that only for arches, under the car and wheels. For the paint I use their pH neutral one, very nice it is too.

I have some 3D wax red foam I'm waiting to try also, will report back.

Thanks for the advice, Dan :) I've ordered the I4D lance and the standard I4D snow foam solution (not the citrus one). Just got to wait for it to arrive..... I wanna play with it NOW :P

I would go with Blue Velvet, but generally, any of the DoDo waxes would suffice.
