clean cars, driveways and houses. To use a pressure washer, you must
connect a water hose to an outdoor spigot and then to the water pump.

material. Start by spraying the engine area, then work your way around
the automobile. Be positive to spray the automobile down with water one
time the automobile is soaped up.
