Is it safe to use my electric outlet in my car for an electric pressure washer?

The Matrix alternator is rated 80A (12v), so you've got 960w max continuous, but of course a ton of that is used by the engine itself. A 12 amp pressure washer is going to pull 1320w continuous, so even before you worry about the inverter spec (and Thurman is correct, it's 100w) the answer is no.
