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

That sounds good to me. Cheers. The guy at the ventureshield in solihull sold me some polish called rejex. It's on the internet. It doesn't leave white build up on the awkward places like decals etc.

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.
