    Streak free cleaning

    Followed instructions and hey presto 5 litres of wash n wax. Followed instructions with my Karcher using the brush for washing the car, (which I don't particularly like) made up a bucket of hot water also to finish off as brush tends to miss areas where the sponge can get in easy. Rinsed with pressure washer and left to dry naturally. Car was streak free which is a pain if not as very noticeable in black.

    Super product

    This is a super product so much so that this is the second lot that I am about to use since having my Karcher pressure washer. The finish is great and is so easy to use just follow the instructions and you will have a super shine on your vehicle.

Is it safe to use with the plastic and the roofing material?

By warrior3213 - wigan - 01 February 2010
  • You really don't want to be using the wash&wax on a conservatory roof. I'd recommend the universal house and garden one for that sort of task. By TerryC - Sheffield - 08 April 2010

    This detergent is safe for us on paint work as long as it is well diluted. I would think it would be safe to use on the surface you've described, perhaps diluted a bit further than the 5 litres of water suggested...

Answer this question

23 March 2016 My Karcher Pressure Washer is a K2 (2000M Plus). It has a very basic 'syphon' pipe for introducing detergents to the pump. There is no adjustable mixer control facility on this model. Presumably, it has a basic 'one-setting-suits-all' regulator built-in. Further, there is no flow control on the brush-head attachement. The only means of controlling the flow of the mix to any attachment is adjusting the water supply tap. Consequently, I have found that 'bags and bottles' of detergents do not provide enough washes to make them economical. Can anyone suggest a 'fix', by way of a adjustable mixer control facility/accessory, for this model? Thanks

    There is no control available for the detergent pick up but it will only dispense when in the low pressure mode ie when the spray nozzle is removed. By using a Karcher vario lance the detergent can be turned on and off as the spray is adjusted.

Will it just do for one car wash or a few of them?

By Maddie - Staffs - 08 August 2011
  • It will do for at least 15 washes, based on you using 1 litre per wash. But you can control how much is used per wash by turning the mixer control down to medium to low By Alan - Halifax - 07 September 2012

    Hi there. This detergent should always be diluted down to 5 litres, regardless of any other stipulation!
