        This is the culprit. https://www.autoglym.com.au/products...oss-protection
        Isopropyl Alcohol. If it's been on there for ages and has soaked into the plastic a little, IPA might not get it all off.

          Usually for a couple of days.

          If you miss out, you may have to wait as long as another few days before it's all on sale again.

            Can't see anything about Bowdens stuff being on sale on their website, would like to get some more of that foam stuff for the snow cannon, but $100 a bottle is a bit spendy.

              Check Autobarn and Repco . It’s like a Discount Centipede between that lot.

                I think the SCA sale was only on Saturday. On Wednesday I had already bought $150 worth of bowdens shit which wasn't on sale.
                Big bottle of Snow Job was $60 I think.

                  Return it if you can. It's terrible. Thin, watery foam no matter how you mix it.......and that's with the Bowdens cannon. I use Dodo Juice Apple iFoam, far better.

                  YMMV I guess.

                    Buy something else, it's one of Bowdens poorest performing products, along with their 'new' formula wheel cleaner. If you were local I'd drop off the remaining 2/3 full large bottle I'm unlikely to ever use.

                      I used it yesterday and it seemed fine. Thicker than the meguires stuff I used in the past. Didn't stick to the car as much as I've seen some stuff do but it was ok for me. Contributed to the car looking fantastic.

                        Hmm it seemed to go on thick here, but we were using pure rainwater with it. I only used the initial sample bottle. Someone said the Bilt Hamber stuff was good? Where can you get that dodo stuff from affordably? Otherwise I'll just toss some of my old meguiars soft wash gel in the foamer bottle.

                            Yep, Bilt Hamber is excellent, far better than Bowden's.

                            That guys has heaps of excellent comparison videos, including several foam ones. The BH foam has always been his go to though a more recent video shows the wax planet 8 below probably pips it.

                              Is there any stockists in the Newcastle region for it? Or is it an online only thing?
