How to wash your bike w/o a driveway

http://svrider.com/tips/wash.htm
"Just wanted to pass this tip along to people who do not have driveways to wash their bikes in and or hate using pressure washers.

Go to home depot and get a liquid fertilizer sprayer you know the type ( the top screws off and you fill it with liquid and pump it up to get pressure). The cheapest ones run around $15.00, they can hold a few gallons of plain water or a solution of water and wash. After the bike is all soaped up just refill the sprayer with plain water and rinse the bike off. I usually take the spray nozzle off so that I just have the hose part to use. It's really great for getting into the hard to reach parts without using a lot of water pressure. Usually I just use plain water with a bucket of wash water and one fill up is all it takes.

Once I'm done I just tuck it under the sink until it's needed again. Since I live in an apartment it's the only way to actually wash the bike with soap and water
