Hints & Tips
The patio and garden furniture can look a bit grubby after the winter and need a good clean if they’re not to let down the rest of the garden.
A good pressure washer can save hours of time with bucket and sponge on the furniture and will be a godsend when it comes to cleaning the patio of the all the grime which have built up over the winter.
Greenworks, a leading American company which manufactures equipment powered with the latest lithium-ion batteries, has three such machines which will prove ideal for the task – and for washing down mud from cars and cycles.
The first is the Greenworks 120 Bar Electric Pressure Washer, like the others in the range exclusive to Mowdirect, delivering 120 bar pressure with a 1600 watt motor, and ideal for cleaning furniture, cars and bikes.

This one has six metres of high-pressure hose and a brush and soap tank which attach to the spray gun.
There are also two extra nozzles set at 2 degrees and 25 degrees to help you get at the more difficult bits.
These are all easily connected thanks to the company’s quick connect system – they simply click into place. And they are made of brass to eliminate corrosion.
The maker’s recommended retail price is £199.95 but we have a whole £100 off that as our price is only £99.95.
