?    Tire Cleaner
?    Roof

Windows

Use your squeegee to clean in vertical and horizontal strokes. Take your washcloth and soak up excess water from the window frames and corners.

Tires
Splash some water on the tires with your hose pipe to get rid of loose mud and dust. Apply your tire cleaner and scrub using your tire brush. Splash more water to rinse and leave the tires to dry.

Sides
