cleaning your jeep

So I got the jeep to look like this (on its first off road adventure ever)



So I just spent 6 bucks at the local car wash (self spray) and didnt get very far. I got all the major chunks off but its still got a good haze of brown on it. Our hose at home has no pressure (I can piss harder). Am I doomed to the double wash (self spray and then rewash at home) Or is there a better method.

thanks

My wife got me a 1700 psi electric power washer. Only takes about 2 hours to clean mine now.

mine looked the same way 2 days ago...

went to a wash it yourself place and got all the major mud off, but you really need a bucket and washclothe/sponge to get all the dirt filled water spots out....make sure you get under the fenders and stuff....you wouldn't believe where that mud can get (oh and at the wash it yourself place, make sure you get all the suspension and steering stuffs with the high pressure washer)

I spent $8 in quarters at the local wash after a day playing in the mud. The high pressure sprayer works wonders...get all up underneath and the fender wells too. Have you opened your hood?

It's not the pressure that matters, its the quantity - in fact I noticed that I have better results on the interior with garden hose than a pressure washer. Just use buckets at home - fill one up, throw it on one part of the car, and go over it with one of those car-wash mittens really thoroughly. 4 or 5 10-qt. buckets usually gets mine sparkling clean after the main chunks have been hosed off.
