Undercarriage Cleaning

With all the dirt and mud that accumulates on a Jeep's underside from wheeling
I like to occasionally get under there with a high pressure washer and clean it out the best I can. In researching cleaners, I ran across this stuff called Bare Bones Undercarriage Spray and Detailer and was wondering if anyone has ever tried it. Apparently, it is good for other parts as well, like bumpers, wheel wells and other plastic items.

Any reports on the stuff, or alternatives, would be appreciated.

I know a lot of people have said they place a sprinkler underneath but I can't imagine how that can do anywhere near as well as a power washer, with or without any kind of cleaner. It really works well for you?

i was skeptical at first, but it works good especially for the red mud we have down here. a power washer may be faster, but im usually not it too big a hurry.

I routinely use a sprinkler on all my vehicles underneath. A good fresh water rinse can cut down on corrosion. This is good up north where they salt the roads. The cool thing is you can set and forget it. So you can have this sprinkler eating away at the dirt and grime. I'm lucky though, I have access to the wash rack where we wash our helicopters. The water is strictly PH controlled to prevent corrosion and is also heated to 180*.
