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…
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’?
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.
