Also, one reason why I wash after I drive all the time is that I spray it off while it's still wet (which makes it easier than when it dries onto the paint - sort of like washing a dish when the sauce on it is still fresh than when it's been sitting in the sink and the sauce dries to the dish).
Cheers on the tip, I think the slow movement and proper angle is key, maybe by the end of this winter I'll have it mastered.
