What do you folks use to reach the center of the CR-V's roof when washing and waxing it? (unless you are seven feet tall ;))Some folks say you should use the rear wheel as a step, but that is quite a step and I doubt that I will be able to reach the windshield side of the roof from there.

I use an inexpensive 2-step, step-stool. Got it on sale at Home Depot many years ago.


You MIGHT be able to use a single-level one, though, depending on how tall you are, and what your reach is.

Thanks, Nice step stool! I also like it because it you can move it without having to bend too low;). Probably just add some pood noodle type covers to the back legs to prevent it from accidently banging against the car. As soon as we are free to shop.............

You are more likely to hit the car with the toes of your shoes than the stool. :rolleyes:

BTW when drying/waxing the car, the 'handle' makes a convenient towel rack. When finished, you can fold it flat with one hand and a 'shake'.

I do reach to the center of the roof with a sponge but a long reach brush is more convenient because the sleeves get wet trying to reach with a sponge.

In summer it's sponge only as there's tree sap and other stuff that require more rubbing.

I went by Harbor Freight and picked up a FRANKLIN 40 In. Lightweight Aluminum Work Platform. I think that Home Depot and Northern Tool have similar items.
