"Maiden Voyage" IN November?

I use just water from the hose without the nozzel on it 1st and let it run over the surface, then use my hands to loosen up the crud, then with a neutral cleaner such as dishwashing detergent and an old cloth diaper.. It works fine for me.. (Got tons of old cloth diapers b 4 they came out with the toss away crap that fills up the landfills full of slightly coloured re-cycled FOOD)
Using an air powered blowgun may imbed particles in the fresh paint tho.. Lotsa clear cold water 1st..

What's the proper way to wash body after long term storage

My street rod is almost ready to come out for it's maiden voyage, but I need to wash the accumulated dust as well as grinding debris off the car. The paint is just a few months old and was color sanded. I'm afraid that if I try to clean the paint improperly, I'll be back into re-buffing it again, or worse, I will imbed particles into the surface. There's no wax on the car. I will blow the major part of the "crap" off, but wasn't sure if I should use soap and water, or some other method. Thanks for any replies. Dan
