Never really have unless the carwash I go to has an underbody cleaner..
Speaking of which, should get this thing washed soon.

I've always relied on driving when it was raining to clean the underbody.

Of course, my Blazer has only been "washed" two times in the last 13+ years. One of those washes was with the pressure washer just to knock off all the mud it had acquired during a rather wet and muddy hunting season. The other was a charity car wash.

I hit the car wash and use the wand after all the crap is off the roads. You can also put a sprinkler underneath the vehicle and let it go. I would also say a pressure washer would be good. I have been going to buy one for 31 years and never got around to it. lol

+1 on using pressure washer especially on those that didn't come off using a sprinkler.

I put an oscillating sprinkler under the front, then middle, and then the rear and it gets all the mud off. I usually put it there while I am cleaning the interior so it can run for a while when its real muddy.
