Use a lite spray on yur hose and wash/dry one section at a time. It is simple and it is a Jeep, so the interior can get wet.

I do it all the time since I'm anal about cars and we rarely have our doors or top on. Mather technique is simple, you just need to go to a wand wash.

1. Get the Jeep sudsy with the soap spray, just be careful to direct the water away from the interior.
2. Use the soapy brush. I always clean it out before using so I don't scratch the paint and I go from top to bottom and do the tires/wheels last.
3. Rinse with the high pressure, again directing water away from the interior.
4. Rinse with the no spot.
5. Dry with microfiber.

Hand wash, the old cloth and bucket method

x2 except..... carefully hose as much as possible first, and use 2 buckets for wash. One to wash the (whatever you use - I use a mitt with lots of little strand things), scraping it on the bottom of the bucket (that has a thing with slots in it made to coral the dirt and keep it low in the bucket) the next bucket use to dip your now clean mitt into to wash.

Repeat above for rinse......

Put the doors and top back on first, then wash.

This is much faster in the long run. Sort of like taping everything off before you paint your living room...might seem time consuming but then you can grab the paint roller and fly.

I do it in my driveway all the time. Is it really that big of an issue to aim a hose? :rolleyes:
