What Do I Need to Pressure Wash My Car
Pressure washing is a great way to clean your car. It can remove dirt, dust, and grime from the surface of your car. Pressure washing also helps to remove any built-up wax or polish from the surface of your car.
When it comes time to pressure wash your car, you’ll want to make sure you have the proper supplies on hand.
- Garden hose with a spray nozzle
- A car wash detergent
- A bucket
- Chamois or terry cloth towel
- Electric pressure washer
To begin, attach the hose to the pressure washer and turn on the water.
Next, add the detergent to the pressure washer according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Once the detergent is in, point the nozzle of the pressure washer at the car and begin washing.
Start at the top of the car and work your way down, being sure to move the nozzle in a back and forth motion.
After you have finished pressure washing the car, turn off the pressure washer and rinse the car with clean water from the hose. Once the car is rinsed, dry it off with the chamois or towel.
How to use a pressure washer safely
When using a pressure washer, always point the nozzle away from you and anyone else in the area. Make sure that the area you are washing is clear of any loose objects that could be blown around by the force of the water. Start with the wand close to the surface you are cleaning and gradually move it further away as you work.
To avoid damaging the paint on your car, do not hold the wand too close to the surface for too long. Move it back and forth across the area you are cleaning. When you are finished pressure washing, rinse the car with clean water to remove any remaining detergent. Dry the car with a chamois or terry cloth towel.
