Ah that's better.
Incidentally - something I had not anticipated. I recently bought myself one of that microfibre mitts for washing the car (always used sponge before). I used the hose to get most of the bird dirt off and then washed it with the mitt, and it left the car perfect (even in the sun) so no need to hose it down again after - just a quick wipe round with microfibre towell to remove the odd smear. Much quicker and no water spot marks. I am a fan of microfibre mitts now.
