Just Curious: How do you folks wash the roof of your Pilot? Do you stand on something, like a chair, ladder, inside the door, or on the back tires?

One of three ways:

1. Originally purchased an ext. sponge and got to the whole roof.

2. Stood in front door and rear door.

3. Got running boards for the Pilot and used those. For the rear someone suggested the rear wheel, that was a great suggestion.

Sponge outfit

I actually have a sponge that fits over my body. I park my pickup and Pilot back to back and run out of the box of my pickup and do like a wet bannana across the top of the Pilot. It really gets cold during the cool months but does the roof ever shine.

Didn't know we had to wash the roof too!!
Has anyone done a study on gas mileage based on the coefficient of drag of a dirty roof versus a clean one?

That's one of the advantages of being 6'7" you can reach the entire roof from the ground!!!

If you can't see it, how do you know if it's dirty?

Actually, I use a step stool and an extension brush.

I stand on my running boards and I stand on rear tire. If you have roof rack, just grab hold and hoist your way up until you can jump up on rear tire. Once up, just stand on tire... Not a big deal. I can get the entire roof that way.

Climb up on the roof. Just step on front tire onto the hood and then up on top. Real easy once you get on the roof.

Use a mop. Something like this attached to a handle. No stools etc. required.

Hmmm. I guess you won't be investing in any cross bars on your roof rack..... :D
