Mine has never been washed with water. I always spray on a wet coat of ICE DETAILER or similar automotive finish detailer. You want to wet the surface well enough to lift the grit so it won't scratch when you wipe it off. It works very well. I'd take compressed air and blow off as much as I could before I sprayed the detailer though.
You can also clean the belly with SCRUBBING BUBBLES bathroom cleaner once you get it flying. Spray it on, wait a few minutes and wipe it off. It works better than you can imagine. Use PLEDGE furniture polish on the canopy and wipe off with a soft cloth.
