I need to get all the salt and sand off the bottom of my X (due to the snow and ice we have had recently) and I do not think that the local car washes do a good enough job. So, here is my thought:

Since the temperature will be in the 40's for the next few days, I was thinking of putting the lawn sprinkler under the X for 10 minutes or so and just let it run. Can anyone think of anything that might be negatively impacted by this?

No, actually, that would probably work well. Might not get it super clean as it wouldn't be high pressure, but you know what, I might just try that when the weather warms up a bit.

I know people that have had good results doing that. It works really well on rock hard mud. It is a "presoak" cycle!

I did just that after a spring trip through "Dry Creek" in WV. Worked well to loosen things up. Not to mention it was fun to watch the brown river rolling down the driveway.

I do it every time I wash, which is about once a week, whether or not it's muddy. Works great.

wouldn't all the salt kill your lawn?? sounds like a good idea...though...i usually just spray the bottom w/ my hose for a few mins..... while parked on the drivway
