An easy way to clean the salt from under your car!
on 22 February 2012
I purchased this item to clean the salt off the underside of my car. First impressions are that it is very easy to use. I used this attachment with a Karcher K3 series pressure washer. The connectors feature a locking nut to ensure the structure remains rigid once assembled. You need to ensure these stay tight, as otherwise the structure flexes and goes off in random directions when you attempt to move it back and forth under the car.
I used this on a standard Ford Focus ST. There was a little room to spare between the washer and the underside of the car. Use on tarmac is extremely easy, but surprisingly it's not too annoying to use on a gravel drive if you use two hands. The product includes an attachment to shampoo the underside of the car, and also to apply a liquid wax as a final step - I guess this is intended to protect the underside. The rinse attachment is similar to that of the patio cleaner in its use of jets that spin in a circular motion.
I'm hoping that using this product will prevent the suspension bolts seizing, which causes problems when it comes time for a wheel alignment. Time will tell!
