Power hose

Post by antcagoule » January 28th, 2019, 7:46 am

This weekend it was due to rain all of Saturday, so I took this as a perfect opportunity to power hose the patio in the garden. I had such a great time. Of course this required rainwear. I chose a pair of blue Peter Storm trousers and my olive green Peter Storm over head cagoule. Of course I had it zipped up and the drawstring pulled nice and tight. Wow, what a swishy outfit. Out I went, the rain coming down nicely, and something growing in my trousers. I had such a great time, water, mud splattering everywhere, rain and rainwear. I was also pleasantly pleased when I was volunteered some help....

I know what you mean, I do it every year in front and back gardens. Lovely excuse to get togged up in favourite gear and wellingtons and rubber gloves. When I've finished [done over several days] I power wask myself to remove all the dirt from my gear, oooooh!"

I always get my peter storm cagoule out (i have lots) and some regatta over trousers to wash the car in, great excuse to get all soapy and wet and no one even suspects why you take so long washing it :) x

I also gear up in full waterproofs (cagoule and raintrousers) and wellies to jet wash and clean the cars. My neighbours just think I'm very sensible in what I wear.... Little do they know...

The best part of power washing the patio, or car, or anything at all, is wearing your gear.....and trapping the power washer hose between your legs. Better than a washing machine.

Me too, on comes the wellies, complete with my Peter Storm cag, and matching trousers. I love washing the car, and getting soaked

I use Guy Cotten waterproofs for this. A blast in the crotch works wonders but don't wear anything else under the trousers.
