This is from the dipyourcar.com web site:

- How/Can I wash the dipped areas of my car? Dipped items/cars can be easily hand washed with regular carwash soap. Usually a good washing with soap, water and a soft mitt is all the dipped area will need once a week to stay looking brand new. Car washes that use high pressure washers or harsh brushes should be avoided.

On the other hand, the website shows Fonzi showing how to presure wash plastiDip. I guess I will take my chances and try it out next time I wash my RL.

I guess that makes sense. I read another thread where someone removed the bumper/grille to paint it. A good tape job would be a lot easier...I may do that tomorrow.
