    I use a Micro Sheen. Just get it wet and it will take off grass, dirt, and grease. It will make your machine look like brand new.

    I use Wesley's Bleach White. You can find this at any automotive store or Wal Mart. It's made to clean tires and wheels. I spray my equipment down then spray with the bleach white. I use a pressure washer to spray down again and it looks like new.

    Pressure washers never should be used on a mower....unless you like to change spindles and bearings prematurely.

    All my equipment is blown free of clippings and debris at the end of each day. Then at the end of the work week, car wash here I come. All the equipment is also waxed monthly.:usflag:

    always rememebr to grease after you wash, that way you can force out any water which may have gotten into the greasable points.
