Tips for the DIY Washer

1 Use a hose with an adjustable nozzle to conserve water. Using a nozzle will also create more pressure that will loosen dirt.
2 Be sure to rinse before the scrub so that sand and dirt particles are washed away, as they could cause damage to the paint.
3 After the soap wash, rinse well and dry with a clean chamois.
