    Bucket and spong will do shop awnings? You will need at least 3000 psi 21lpm if you want to clean drives, patios etc properly.

    Dependant on the material of the awning you could try using bleach? If it's a stain that's been on for years sometimes you'll never get them off and if you do there will be a witness mark underneath anyway lol

    That might work on the awnings if they are the PVC type but drives will be heavy going!

    Well said peter. To say you NEED 21L machine to do the job properly is nonsense. I have a 15L Briggs and Stratton machine that does a perfect job every time :)
