RE: Wheel washing

My first choice would be to drive in to one of the do-it-yourself car
washes. But if that's not feasible in your situation, how about this: for
about $15 (maybe $20) you can purchase a two-gallon, plastic garden
sprayer. Fill it with water, pump it up a bit--and spray away. One filling
ought to last most of the winter.
