  1. It is not worth the risk of potential damage by using a high pressure unit. Stay in the 1500-2000 psi range.
  2. I would not soak towels together if the plush ones are used with the ceramic products, as that product can get transferred into other towels. And vise-versa, you would not want interior products like the conditioners getting into your paint towels I separate towels into different loads by what they are used for. Plush towels used on paint in one load, drying towels, interior cleaning and conditioning towels in another load, glass towels in separate load to avoid cross-contamination that can lead to streaks on glass, and wheel towels in a load by themselves since they will be dirtier and can have embedded brake dust that I do not want getting into any plush towels used on paint. To avoid having too small of loads, I will hand rinse towels after use, and then hang to dry. Once dry, I put them in lidded totes until there is enough for a load. You can store the used towels until you have enough for a load, just as long as you hang them to dry first before storing them. Use a tote with a lid, and not an open laundry basket, to keep them from getting contaminated if stored in the garage. The only exception to this method is towels used for ceramics products or H2) Guard and Gloss. The towels used with ceramic products should be habd-washed with Revitalizer to keep the ceramic from fully curing into the fibers of the towel. HGG should also be hand-washed right away with Revitalizer since this product is water-activated, it is importation to get the product cleaned out of the towels immediately after you are done. Do not let the product sit in the towels and cure. My process is to rinse them out in the sink really good with warm water, to get most of the ceramic or HGG out, then spray all sides of the towel with full-strength Revitalizer, and really work the towel in your hands to get the detergent into the fibers. Then I rinse them out, and repeat with the Revitalizer. Hang to dry in a safe place, and once dry, I store them in a sealed tote until I get enough for a load in the washing machine. Detailing towels should always be washed with Revitalizer. Regular laundry detergent is not strong enough to remove many of the products used. Run the washing machine on hot water, with an extra rinse.
  3. I notice this issue on my neighbor's asphalt driveway. It could be either product, but I would guess the Tire & Rubber Cleaner is worse, since it is going to affect the oil in the asphalt. Wetting the driveway may help dilute the product on the surface, but it might not resolve the issue. You could run the hose near each tire so that there is a flow of water to help with dilution. Also, if you live in a climate with winters, you should have your driveway seal-coated to make it last longer. The seal-coating helps keep water out of the pores, where the water will freeze and cause damage over time.
  4. Been too busy on house projects. Home Theater wall is done. Workshop coming along, took a long time to get all the cabinets with them being out of stock. Landscaping almost finished. Hauled in lots of good dirt. Record setting heat this summer has not been fun. Next project is the detailing area. Cabinets and sink are in, but need to get the pressure washer, hose reels and deionizer transferred from my cart to the wall. Once that is done, I can focus on getting this thread back on track with detailing posts!
  5. The method that I use on a large truck: Start with good pre-rinse to get the loose dirt off, preferably with pressure washer. Foam the whole truck so that the foam can start to loosen the remaining grime. Using the wash mitt, starting with the top sections. Rinse the wash mitt in the Rinse Bucket, then move to the next area on the vehicle, foam it up, wash with mitt, rinse the media, and so forth. Work from top to bottom with the mitt, as the lower sections will have the most dirt and grit, so you do not want to bring that scratch-inducing material up onto the more visible portions of the truck.
  6. Installed the Workshop flooring. Same LVP as the house, durable and 100% waterproof. Next up is cabinets and benchtops, then get the woodworking tools set up. Interior is finished. Exterior almost done, just waiting on the asphalt driveway. Will be doing all the landscaping myself this summer, since the builder charges $6k for very basic front yard landscaping.
  7. I drilled holes for the hose reel. The CR Spotless was a little more tricky, as the mounting holes in the filter head were wider than the cart shelf, so I had to add some 90 degree brackets. The pressure washer just sits on the bottom shelf. Good news for you, I am building a new garage and switching to wall-mounted equipment, as I will be able to wash indoors. As such, I am going to be disassembling this cart. If you are interested, I would make you a good deal on the cart and CR Spotless, and you could add a pressure washer and the same hose reel, or I can leave the hose reel. Where are you at in Washington? My little bro lives in West Seattle, so maybe he could haul the cart when he comes over to visit this summer, if you are closer to that area.
  8. After putting up a plank accent wall in the house, I decided that it would be a good product to use in the garage where the sink and pressure washer equipment will be mounted. It is vinyl plank, so impervious to water. And the house wall where the Home Theater will be:

  10. New garage build is underway! The last 10 months have been super busy, getting the old house ready to sell, and then starting on a new house build. Yeah, the garage will have a house attached to it, but the priority is the garage! In the old garage, I had a pretty good setup for detailing and also woodworking, but the lack of separation between the two hobbies was a bit of a hindrance. I needed more room around my truck, to be able to open the doors wide. I also wanted to be able to wash inside, to avoid the constraints of weather, but the shop tools cannot get wet. A few pics of the old garage, all cleaned up for the sale: I had hoped to find a buyer who would want the shop tools along with the house, as I spent many hundreds of hours getting this shop setup. The buyers ended up being a couple older ladies, and they had no need for tools, so I spent another hundred hours disassembling the shop and getting all the tools moved to a storage unit. The new garage will have room for three vehicles, and I made it wider, with an 18-foot double door and 10-foot single door. First order of business was floor drains for washing inside, and also for all the winter lush that ends up falling off the vehicles in the heated garage. With the trench drains in each parking stall, and the floor sloping to each drain, all the winter crud will fall off and run under the vehicles, rather than across the floor to the doors. The builder on this house is an engineering client of mine, which gave me the fortunate opportunity to do some work myself during the build. I installed the drains and piping, with a small catch basin just outside the garage to collect the dirt. The pipes drain to the rear of the lot to a small swale, and also pick up the rain gutter downspouts. The new layout has a Workshop area off the rear of the garage where some of the woodworking tools will go, and then there is a basement below the Workshop which is accessible from the back yard, and some tools and storage will go there. While it is not ideal to have tools in two different locations, the size and layout of the sloped lot would not allow for the main garage to be any bigger. The Workshop will get flooring, and some cabinets with workbenches The table saw will go under the duct dropping from the ceiling, with the dust collector down in the basement. Building a garage from the beginning gave me the ability to get it roughed-in for dust collection and compressed air, pick the locations of all the outlets, have wall mount garage door openers, and get blocking installed for the fans, hose reels, and pressure washer shelf. A few pics of the house, which will be completed by the end of March.

  12. I need a little bigger Rolling Wheel Stand for these monsters!
