Hey everyone,
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to and not to do when washing your car with a pressure washer? And also anyone have a clue on what is a good PSI to wash your car with?
Thanks in advance!

Hi, just make sure you use a car washing nozzle, otherwise you'll be stripping the poor thing bare! And spray from a distance, not fewer than 18 inches. Don’t just use a hose. Enough pressure will spray your paint off AND also don’t use the brushes as they will scratch your paint.
You may use 2400-3000 psi pressure washer and I’m sure it will work fine. I found excellent reviews about the best pressure washers selected on their characteristics at Pressure Washer Characteristics (http://www.best-pressure-washer-reviews.com/pressure-washer-characteristics.html) , hope this will help you.

Pressure washer are good but the diameter of pressure should be more and also don't put pressure on any part for a longer time.
