Hand pump pressure washer.

Ebay for £15.

I like using this on the bike as it has enough pressure to rinse off crud and after a clean with Muck Off, but it is not going to blast the bike and damage electrics. For £15 or less it has done me proud all winter with regular use. I delayed doing this review to make sure it was not going to break after a couple of uses.

One fill is easily enough to clean the bike. I wet it first to get off the grit, then Muck Off and a rinse. I pump it about 20 times and then again for a couple of times every 30 seconds or so as I am going.

Nice one!!
I was considering digging a trench up my garden to my garage to lay a water pipe for a hose to hose my bikes down.
This might just have saved me a lot of digging!!

Never seen the attachments for these but I have one of them

they are great for winter to keep full of water to quickly hose the bike down to get the salt off after each ride

Just ordered one with a shower attachment so I can also use it to shower off the dogs when they get all muddy :)

I've got one. Its a great bit of kit but the water runs out before I've finished. At least twice!

Its also good for keeping cool when camping.

Get the one from ebay with the shower attachment and it works a treat. Not what you would call a "power shower" but plenty for cleaning off poo covered mutts!
