    Found out that a $1.00 toilet brush from dollar store will clean spokes and rims nicely. Long handle will go around the rim up the fender. Try it you will like it.

    Then I use my compressor to get the water. When I'm in a hurry and don't want to wait for the compressor I use the blower for the leaves and then wipe the wheels and tires.

    Luster lace, you use it like a shoe string. I find it easy if you don't let the spokes get too bad and I use pledge on them, they look like new.

    LUSTER LACE, POLISH STRIPS
