JetWet portable pressure washer review

by 6

The JetWet portable pressure washer could mean the end of dirty car interiors but is it any good?

We’re very much in the grip of Autumn now, and we all have to come to the reality that we will be riding in wet or muddy conditions from now until March-April 2020 (perhaps later ?).

Riding in the wet and mud isn’t actually too bad though. We get to hone our wet weather riding skills, we get to uncover new trails that may have become overgrown in the summer, and we can look forward to cleaning our bikes at the end of a ride again… oh.. wait…

It’s that time of year again.

I’d like to think that we’re all now competent at cleaning our bikes. We should all have cleaning equipment, brushes, cleaner, oil, lube and at the very least a hosepipe but ideally a pressure washer.

But what if your ride doesn’t finish at home but instead ends at a carpark? What if you have one of those awkward cars you can’t place a bike rack on? What if you don’t want to coat the interior of your car with Britain’s patented ‘wet dust’?

No eBikes will be going on that roof!

Take me for example. I have a Fiat Panda 100HP, and because it was designed as a ‘sporty’ car it isn’t compatible with a tow bar. Even if I could fit one my insurance would be void because it wasn’t designed to be used with one. I could still put a roof rack on the car, but I don’t fancy plonking a 50lb ebike up there, so my only option is to place the bike inside, and after a muddy ride that means a muddy interior! Or at least it did.

    As I was reading, I thought “it’d be great if it had a shower head”. I can see myself buying one of these when the human washer version becomes available

    Sixty notes seems pretty reasonable, almost tempted to get one of these.

    If you check the US website it shows a shower head.

    Just checked the website, as I thought £60 why not, only to see it at £80, which crosses the talk to the wife threshold. Strangely the american and UK versions appear to have different spray heads on them. The american one appears to have the same spray attachment as the mobi V15. This does look like it solves some of the problems with the mobi washer.

    Why a bag? I can picture it getting soaked and then having to put it in something waterproof to get it home.

    @potiriadis yup, just received a message stating the price is actually £85 now.
