    soap for pressure washer

    Can I used Meguiar's Deep Crystal car wash in a pressure washer? I am purchasing a Ryobi 2300 psi electric machine. If not Meguiar's, do you have a recommendation?

    yes you can use deep crystal. It is not as concentrated as some of their other soaps, so you may have to use 4-6oz in a foam cannon. Gold Class soap works well as a soap too. Hyperwash in their detailing line is most suited for pressure washer and foam cannon use due to its concentration.

    Make sure with the pressure washer that you are using their 40 deg tip and not the turbo nozzle or the 0-15 deg tip(s) so that you don't damage your car's paint

    Meguiar's Car Wash Concentrates are primarily designed to be diluted in a bucket with water, for use in a traditional, ideally two bucket wash method. That said, many of them work very well in a foam cannon, especially our Gold Class Car Wash. That said, we do not really have any info whether or not they are safe for use to go into your actual pressure washer. You really would want to research that a bit more with the manufacturer of the pressure washer. Overall, we would really recommend looking into a foam cannon, there are several out there, they are more popular than using soap through a pressure washer likely because they work differently. A foam cannon is an attachment that would go on the end of your pressure washer wand.

    Re: soap for pressure washer

    I think it is a good idea to use deep crystal. It iwll be better thatn using other soaps woth higher concentration. Also keep high attetnion to the water pressure in your washer if you do not want to damage the car paint.
