How Jimmy Saved Time When Cleaning Aiko’s Car

If you care about the environment and your time you should wash your car with a power washer because it uses 5x less water than a garden hose and sponge and you’ll complete the job in less than half the time. Jimmy was lazy in the movie so he did this and so should you. Let’s look at how and which one to use by looking at pressure cleaner reviews website tips.

Steps to washing your car with a power washer:

1. Park your car on the grass in the front or side yard. When you wash your car all the water ends up going down the street storm drain, not cool stuff. You should park your car on your grass so that the discharge gets absorbed into the landscaping. Especially if you plan to use soap or hot water you will risk fines if you just allow it to go down the street storm drain. You do know all that water ends up (untreated) in streams and lakes in your area, right?

2. Use a 40 degree nozzle in combination with the correct size pressure cleaner for car washing, you’ll want to do that to avoid damaging the paint on your car. Start by spraying the entire car down from about 30cm away and then use soap and it should be clean.

3. Ensure you get into the wheel wells to clean all the dirt and prevent rust.

That’s it. It should only take about 10 minutes and you’ll only use 40 or 50 litres instead of the 250 you’d use with a garden and washing by hand.

Did You Grow Up Mowing Your Parents Lawn?

In the movie White On Rice (2009) Jimmy moves in with his sister and instead of paying rent helps around the house. He does the dishes, mows the lawn etc. Here I wanted to focus mowing the lawn and look at the options for purchasing a lawn mower to not only mow your lawn but other peoples for money… Jimmy could have done this as a job and had money to take out his girlfriend.

Growing up I mowed my parents lawn with a heavy petrol lawn mower. It wasn’t self propelled and my lawn had slopes so it was a good workout. There’s also electric lawn mowers – some with cords and some with batteries.

Anyways, let’s look at some lawn mower reviews to see how to know which is best for your situation.

Petrol Mower – In short you should get a petrol mower if it will take you longer than 1 hour to mow your lawn or if you have thick tough grass. A petrol is also ideal for remote lawns that have no access to electricity.

Electric Mower – Electric mowers are best suited for more residential, smaller lawns in the suburbs. They’re quiet and don’t require maintenance.

Reel Mower – A reel mower is the most silent and most affordable and clips your lawn instead of tearing the grass. Many people prefer reel, but be sure to know that it requires you pushing it to turn the blade.
