The good news is it may just be a simple case of cleaning your foaming pump to get it working again - just follow the instructions below and you will likely find you are back on the road.  

If cleaning your pump does not solve your issue however, please get in touch with us at and request a replacement.

  1. Foaming pump
  2. Distilled white vinegar
  3. Warm water
