If you have to use the brush at the jet wash, why not remember to use the high pressure lance on the brush before letting the brush anywhere near your car - it helps ensure its as clean and grit free as possible.

Don't let a high pressure washer anywhere near your paintwork if you have any stone chips etc. It lifted lacquer the size of a 50p piece off my bonnet! Doh!!!

Wow, you guys are experts. Is a pressure wash under the car damaging in any way?

I always do that, seems kinda obvious although I got some funny looks last time ;)
