I think at the car wash you can use the "tire cleaner" spray on it and let it sit for a couple min then spray it off with water. Worked on my Subaru

I have an electric pressure washer that i use after off roading. it works pretty well and it's 1800 psi... more than a spray bay, but still safe if i'm careful to not go too close to the paint.

i got it after two $25 trips to the spray bay and figured it would pay for itself pretty soon.

i load it up with simple green's high strength product and it works really well so you could probably just get it and scrub it on. it's purple not green

I use Suzuki wash on my dirt bikes and it works well. It's a spray on, let sit then rinse off product.

I ALWAYS forget to clean the engine compartment. I just spray lightly with water and scrub with soapy water a soft bristle brush.

Spray your undercarriage with tire shine before going in the mud, makes clean up easier because mud won't stick. Not good for the engine or electronics, but you can wipe down any plastic bits under the hood first.

I used the purple stuff on my polished wheels and it started to pit them. Glad I was paying attention and rinsed and washed it off fast, before it did too much harm.

In high school we used Pam cooking spray on the rims, fenders and head lights.
