I'm pretty strict when it comes to cleaning my bikes, But that's either because I used to detail specialist paint or I think it's a form of OCD lol

This is my method

- I normally use a brand called swissvax. But autoglym or maguires are good quality

- I Try to use two buckets one with Just water and the other with a quality product, after each time the wash MIT touches the bike I usually dip it in the bucket containing just water

- using my hand I just scratch the MIT to help remove all the dirt that was on the bike now on the MIT before putting it back in the bucket with the soap.

- Never use a sponge but a micorfibre wash MIt, so it pushes stones to the back and doesn't scratch paint, and leave swirls in the paintwork.

- I rinse all the soap off and dry with a micorfibre cloth, never a chamois

- I avoid using hoses as well, like you said I'm not a fan of soaking but just old fashioned elbow grease

For all the bodywork, including wheels, forks, darn it, everything, I use Plexus plastic cleaner. If the wheels get super grimy, simple green and water, then spray Plexus over it. works great.

I basically will not hose water over a bike. It collects in the engine and will corrode, or mineralize. I try religiously to blow out water with an air compressor.
