Do you spend hours washing your car only to rinse it off and get water spots? Learn how to turn hard water into soft water in eliminate hard water spotting.
Things You'll Need
- 5 Gallon Bucket or Hose end sprayer
- Water Hose
Use a mixture of about 1/2 cup Borax to 5 gallons of water and rinse your car. The Borax is a water softener and will eliminate hard water spotting. Works best with warm to hot water since the Borax is a powder. You may also mix in a 5 gallon bucket and rinse that way by making the mix and dumping the mix onto your car.
I use a hose end applicator and a garden hose, this will automatically mix for you
You could also siphon the mix out of a 5 gallon bucket using your pressure washer and the black chem tip.
Tips & Warnings
- Mix using Warm Water
- Borax is a powder and could clog the nozzle of your applicator if not well mixed.
