    One thing that's always bugged me is how painful it is to wash the roof on large SUVs and 4x4s.

    I have a Prado and an X5, how is everyone here getting to the roofs of these sorts of vehicles?

    I've been using the two step ladder but can be pretty unstable trying to reach the middle of the roof. One day I'm gonna crash the ladder into the door.

    That work platform might do the trick actually

    Have a look at the Gorilla safety step. Nice and stable and the top surface has good grip even when wet.

    I have a large plastic tub, heavy duty as it has to hold me (125kg), and an extendable pole noodle mitt, like the one below. On the plus side, when you've washed the roof, you can put your wash buckets on the tub, so you don't have to bend down.
