Lived in my current home for 11 years now, and have power washed the house exterior 2X and the driveway/garage floor/sidewalks only once. I bought a pretty nice power washer last year though, so I suppose I'll have to justify the expense and use it more often. It's currently on loan to my boss...brownie points anyone?

In error I wrote that I pay to have someone do it every year, when in fact I power was it myself once a year. I have interlock.

We had a commercial grade power-washer where I used to w*rk, complete with a kerosene-fired boiler to supply HOT water and a small pump to supply soap or solvent. We used it to wash all of the vehicles (including personal cars) and it did a GREAT job!

You could drum up some extra cash by turning your driveway into the neighborhood carwash and hire some bikini-clad girls to attract customers.
