    ages ago i saw a vid of somebody pressure washing his sleeves .the amount of ingrained crud that came out was amazing [compared to normal washing in a washing machine. ]

    anyone else do this? if you do,how powerful does the PW need to be to do a proper job.?

    I always use a customers outside tap (only the ones with mental pressure). Down side is wet legs and feet but so much better than washing. Also cleaning T bar is great until you get a wet face.

    Didnt blast it with the highest pressure, but it become very clean.

    You don't need a lot of power. I do mine regularly with an ordinary (Hozelock) variable spray handle set at jet.
