    Karcher All Purpose Detergent Clean Tabs?

    Hey all,

    My karcher came with a box of "all purpose detergent clean tabs". What are they for? Do I use them every time to prevent limescale? Or is it for to clean the washer now and again? Or have I got it completely wrong and it's a form of soap for whatever you're cleaning?



    What are these for?

    The instructions seems to suggest that it is a product to clean the car/patio etc. So how do I use this along side my Megs NXT car shampoo? Or do I use one or the other?

    OK thanks. So the detergent suction hose, I dunk that into the bottle of the car shampoo or is it too thick?

    This is what I have:

    just use the karcher to rinse unless you have a foam lance. its good shampoo and is very thick, just use it in a bucket.

    Thanks mate. Could I mix some say 50/50 with water and use that with the suction hose?

    could do but no need to as with the little suction hose you wont get a foam just a slightly soapy water solution which will make no difference.

    Cool I'll look at it next month. I get paid tomorrow, but £50 is LOT for a pressure washer adapter, especially when I only get ~£450 a month (before insurance, petrol etc!).

    To be fair, I'm owed nearly £300 in tax, so I may treat myself then!
