Tips for Using Soap with Your Pressure Washer

If you’re using a pressure washer to clean your car, sidewalk or deck, you may want to add soap to the mix. Soap can help loosen up tough dirt and grime, making it easier to remove. Here are a few tips for using soap with your pressure washer:

However, if soap is used too often, it can damage the pressure washer pump. Most manufacturers recommend only using soap with a pressure washer every 30 days or so.
