What spray on cleaner do you use on your buggy ?

I don't normally use a cleaner, just my pressure washer but on occasion I will drop some warm water and some auto wash & wax like Turtle and give it a light rub-down. I also use SC-1 after words to make it shine and to help keep stuff from sticking so much on the next ride.

I'm pretty much the same as NMK. Armorall or whatever I have does help keep dust off. Remember low pressure by the radiator.

ok, I did try some "muck off" on a small area around the rear diff, cleans it up a treat but it took the shine off some of the paint (after I sprayed it with duck oil the shine came back)

I'm just thinking if there was something like it but less aggressive

I always take mine to the car wash down the street and wash it like a car.  I always make sure to take the seats out first though.

Pressure washer, and maybe a little dawn dish wash liquid in a bucket, then "tire wet" or "hot shine" stuff on all the flares and underneath, shocks, etc. on the paint I used up all of my pledge (for electronics) can't find it anywhere worked awesome on the paint.  Many recommend pledge, SC1, Honda makes a good detail spray, turtle wax ICE, and meguires platinum detail spray.

Should never use Dawn Dish wash soap to wash cars or ATVs. It'll rust metal faster than you can rinse it off!

1)  Spray off the thickest stuff with the pressure washer.
2)  Grab the foam cannon and mix a cup of Zep Industrial Purple and a cup or two of Tide (depends how foamy you want it).
3)  Make it snow using the foam cannon/pressure washer.  Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to let the degreaser do its thing.
4)  Pressure wash thoroughly again.  This will get it pretty clean with no scrubbing, but if I really want to shine it up I'll go further.

OPTIONAL

5)  Turtle Wax Ice wash/wax and wash mitt.  Just wash it like a car.
6)  Chamois cloth it off and spray on some tire foam or SC1 if I have any.

The Sun Joe pressure washer I've got is surprisingly good for an electric pressure washer.  My dad's got a DeWalt gas one and it's outstanding, but I didn't want to spend $700+ on a washer so I found the Sun Joe on eBay through a wholesaler for $90 and so far, so good.
