    Agree with the above comments. There is no way you would catch me using a brush on my paintwork!

    Never use a brush, or a sponge as they harbour to mush dirt and grit which will scratch your paint work. Get yourself a wash mit for best results. Take a look at the detailing guide in the detailing section for more info.

    Better of using the 2 bucket methode, with a wasmitt. 1 bucket with clean rinsing water (rinsing the wasmitt) and 1 bucket with washing water (shampoo).
    This way your washmitt and washing water will keep clean and you will reduce the danger of scratching your paint.

    As mike said :P

    Possibly get yourself a foam lance & pressure washer? Good soak with foam and a blast with the pressure washer brings it up pretty good usually with pretty minimal effort.
