This "vs" post was purely accidental. While pressure washing the driveway, we ran out of time and finished with Wet & Forget sparking this accidental pressure washing verses Wet & Forget comparison!
Let me back up to the "why" we ran out of time. Last fall, we decided to keep ourselves busy while Mac, Steph's greyhound, was at the vet for some dental surgery. Greyhounds aren't like most dogs as the use of anesthesia is tricky for them. We needed an easy, mindless activity to keep ourselves occupied as to not dwell on "what could happen"--pressure washing the driveway was the perfect activity!
Luckily, the procedure went well and the vet called sooner than we expected to come get her! That was good news, but meant we couldn't finish pressure washing the driveway. That's how we ended up with this accidental "vs" post!
This project started routinely with the use of a Ryobi pressure washer. As I normally do, I added pressure washing soap to the concrete before cleaning. I've found it really helps to do this extra step as it helps the pressure washer to clean the concrete more efficiently. I leave it on a minimum of 10 minutes making sure to keep it wet the entire time. The Ryobi battery powered garden sprayer or Milwaukee tank sprayer makes it easy.
The Milwaukee tank sprayer has interchangeable tanks so we swapped out the chemical tank for the water tank. We wet down the grass before and after applying the Wet & Forget as it can cause temporary browning of the grass if it gets on it. The tank switch was quick and effortless! Much easier than dragging out the garden hose.
We thought when we cleaned the driveway it would be a post all about pressure washing. What a happy accident to be able report on the cleaning power of Wet & Forget. This has given me the proof that I need to Wet & Forget my entire driveway since it is a real chore to pressure wash. We'll let you know how it goes. My driveway has a lot of shade and is much dirtier than Steph's. It will be interesting to see how it does.
