I do love my MINI, but the first and last time I washed it, it looked worse after than it did when I started!

Come on Nik, it's not hard - rinse it with a couple or buckets of cold water splashed over, then rub a sponge all over it, not forgetting to drop the sponge on the ground a few times to pick up extra grit - you only need to use one bucket of scalding hot water with some Fairy liquid. Then use a chamois to dry it off - rub it HARD. Then if there are any stubborn spots left, try using one of those washing up sponges with the green tough scouring side - works a treat! Don't bother rinsing, it will rain soon.

Like most law-abiding citizens, I am just not on the lookout for such things. You noticed earlier cos you have stuff to hide Wink

My brother's a policeman so I recognised the 'outlook' and disposition Wink
