Work van cleaning??

Got a new work van which, with the nature of my job, is pretty dirty after 2-3 days.

I get some downtime at site every few days which gives me the chance to give it a quick wash. however i dont have an outside tap for a hose, and dont have the time and enthusiasm to dry it after every wash, but still like it to look presentable.

Basically i am washing it with a bucket and mitt then throwing buckets of clean water over it to rinse

What i'm wondering is there a cheap/value for money/bulk quick detailer style product out there that you can, after washing, spray on (with a hand pump sprayer) that will pretty much make most of the water run off/dry?

P.S if anyone has any suggestions of any other products out there that would be of use to me for cleaning a van please suggest!

Its a work van and I like it to look clean most of the time, not too bothered about being anal with the paintwork/swirls...


Cheers!

Something like CarChem Rinse Aid might do the trick?

http://car-chem.com/store/instant-pr...inse-aid-500ml

It sounds like a wash and wax shampoo might be worth considering to leave that bit of protection on the vehicle that would then make subsequent washes easier. Car Chem have one http://car-chem.com/store/car-care-e...mpoo-wax-500ml.

As with all things CarChem they are available in bigger sizes if you want.

I am sure Autoglym Pro and Autosmart would have similar products, I'm just not that familiar with their ranges.
