Just to clarify, you do still wash by hand...using sponge, mit whatever you want. All the Flash system does is rinse, soap, (then you do the hand wash bit), rinse again, then a final rinse using it's de-ionised water setting.

Personally, I always preferred washing with a hose pipe and attached brush. Washing with things such as a sponge or mit makes it more susceptible to getting scratched. Using a water fed brush is always flushing the dirt away, so less likely to scratch.
