hi all, i greatly enjoy washing and detailing my car but im still confused after many years of washing my car. does using a pressure washer damage the car's paint work by removing the lacquer that is the shiny top layer of the paint surface??? a lot of my mates and neighbours have cautioned me of using a high pressure washer, but during the winter months all that salt sticks to my car and when it comes to washing time a normal hose pipe fails to take away the salt and dirt off the bodywork.
then the dirt and road salt leave swirls and scratches on the paintwork when im shampooing my car, as i believe that by pressure washing i remove more dirt from the bodywork then the my wash mitt picks up less dirt then theres less chance of swirls or scratches to the paintwork!!
i would like all your advise and opinions to this matter.......thanks
