When I run out of car soap and do not want to make the trip I use dish soap. I also noticed the white residue. Heavy rinsing cured the problem for me. I use a garden hose with no nozzle and run it slowly from top to bottom. I also polish and wax the tins and wheels 2-3 times from April-October.

Either it's the soap or the sun. Left water spots. I usually wash my vehicles in early morning or sun set. But I'm still going or my ride.

Just do it the easy way and buy some good car-wash soap. Gold Class works very well and rinses clean. The bicycle cleaner "Muc-Off" works like magic on the wheels and brakes, no nasty chemicals in it, either.

Do mine every two weeks. I like it, sort of meditative, and it's a good way to catch any problems.
