3 Easy Steps on How to Make Your Own Pressure Washer Detergent
Step 1 – Combine the dry components
Before you start mixing, make sure to protect yourself with a mask, goggles, and gloves. The first thing to do is to combine the laundry detergent powder and all-purpose household cleaner powder. The ratio will be 100 ml of laundry detergent to 200 ml of the all-purpose cleaner powder. Mix them thoroughly and allow to set overnight. This is to make sure that the two components are combined properly.
Step 2 – Add in the wet components
Mix 1 liter of bleach to 5 liters of water in a large bucket. Add the previously mixed powder to the bucket while constantly stirring with the wooden stick. Make sure that the contents don’t settle. Be careful not to stir the mixture too fast because this will result in the formation of soap suds. If your mixture happens to have too much soap suds, then leave the mixture overnight to get rid of the bubbles.
Step 3 – Proper storage
Now that you know how to make your own pressure washer detergent, using them will be even more rewarding. It is best to use your self-made pressure washer detergent right after mixing them, provided that it’s not too sudsy. Otherwise, you will have to wait the next day to use them to allow the bubbles to disperse. If you are using your stored pressure washer detergent, stir the mixture first being careful not to mix it too fast, then simply load them up in your pressure washer.
Take note that bleach may be harmful to plants, so make sure to cover them before you start washing. After washing with the detergent, make sure to rinse it with water. Your garden hose may come handy in washing off excess grime and detergent. Don’t hesitate to use garden hose reels to make rinsing even easier.
