    Just bought a pressure washer and I'm wondering the best way to go about washing the car WITHOUT using mitts and a bucket etc.

    Snow foam wash followed by a shampoo/wax through the washer?

    You need to touch the paint im afraid to get a decent wash... you need to touch it to dry the car anyway..

    I think a lot of 'car people' are fussier than I am when it comes to the finish. I've been satisfied just using the jet washes you pay for and can't be arsed going to as much hassle as that.

    The main reason why I bought the pressure washer in the first place.

    Touchless wash is possible.....but you need to do a lot of preperation before hand.

    For example, the car needs to be clayed and polish then a good wax or sealent.....

    With this you should be able to do a touchless was with a pw and snowfoam....I know this as i do it nearly everyday on my van and car.....
