Welcome to the Forums...

How about a bucket of soapy water and a soft sponge? I wash my AS from time to time, and that usually works just fine. I've also used my 3000 psi pressure washer, which worked fine as well, but mine no longer has paint/clear coat on it, so there isn't much damage I can do other than blowing water past the window seals, which I avoid.

I usually pressure wash it down using the nozzle that's used for car washing and not etching concrete. I only do it at the start of the season. It sits in my shop so its mainly dust. Mine is painted and it hold up just fine. I don't usually wash it after that except for the front when it catches enough bugs to warrant it. Just soap and water does the trick but my paint job is old so it mostly about the bugs.
