Default your Tire Cleaning Jigs

What contraptions have some of you come up with for quick cleaning of tires at the track? Ive seen some people with a bucket with some kinda crank to turn the tires on a brush, but didn't really look too closely. What do you use? pics?

Glue a brush in the bottom of a tupperware container. Fill the container with water until it is half way up the bristles.

If you're really motivated and creative you can build something like this.

I just stack all four tires in a tower and put on the edge of table. brushing down the stack with water/cleaner, getting all tires at once and rotating the stack. Try it and you will see how quick it is
No need for a jig.
I will clean a whole set before you are done with one tire with a cooler/bucket

And I will be done way before you as I leave my tires on the car, and just clean them using my Tupperware container with a brush glued to the inside. I'll be done before you can even have all the tires off of your car. What say you?
