    just lower the pressure on the washer and you shouldnt remove any paint , what i normally do is prespray with chloras , let it soak in for 10 mins then rinse

    dont be afraid to use it , if you get some on the glass just it a thorough rinse , ive never had a problem with it yet , it melts the dirt off straight away especially green algae , its brilliant on concrete drives and paths etc

    How much would you charge on that Mr Shine ? Do you do it per square meter or set rate per side ?
