How does a Michigander like myself manage keeping my car clean in the winter if it is a daily driver?
Wait for a day above 32F, and head to the quarter wash place with the two buckets like just mentioned above. One with sudsy car wash soap, and the other for rinsing your mitt.

My Camaro get's parked for the winter, but I do the two bucket thing a couple times a month on my Silverado 4x4 when a warm day hits in the winter. Works great as long as it's above freezing.
