Without driving,

Gave mine a Xmas clean ready for leaving in the garage for a few weeks, however couldnt take it on the roads, as they are covered in sh*t, and it would have been a pointless excersise cleaning.

I have driven back and forward hard on the drive a few times to try and clean the brakes, and also left the heater on full blast in the garage, however am i going to give myself binding problems, if I dont give it a squirt b4 going away, the roads still look bad.

Leaf blower - one with a big motor - seems to do a pretty good job.

I dont think rolling it forward and back will do any good. You need heat in the brakes as its the inside of the discs that rot the worst, so they have to be hot to dry all components out. I usually wash the wheels, then drive round the block, then wash the rest of the car. If you are careful with the hose then no water gets on the wheels and hey presto dry brakes!.After cleaning the car then I just use a MF cloth to wipe the smallamount of dirt that is there from the short drive.
While on this subject, what about all the cars outside the dealers that are washed (probably daily) and never have the brakes dried out?
