Reminds me of a joke. We're all adults here right? Right. Ok.

"I got a really heavy sweater for my birthday. I was hoping for a moaner or a screamer, but this is better than nothing"

I know the first thing they both need to do is clean their own bikes WAY more often... like after every ride. But they just dont.
First of all, how is it that you care more about their bikes than they do?

Something is wrong with this picture.

Personally, I sprayed WD40.

Add me to the list of folks who thought this thread was about cardigans and other cold weather casual clothing.

Just hose the bike down after a sweaty ride. I'd skip the time consuming wet rag wiping. Maybe do that once a week.

If a hose isn't always conveniently hooked up to the spigot, buy a 2 gallon sprayer and use that. Just spray the bike down, bounce it a couple times, and let it dry.

Solo makes a great sprayer. They have a model that holds about 2-3 gallons, develops great pressure and an adjustable spray pattern.

My drivetrain is clean. THat and the moving suspension bits on the mountain bike. The other stuff when it gets kinda groaty enough for me to notice.

Rheem is apparently going to be offering a HotWave sprayer unit to attach to a regular garden spigot.
It will reportedly raise water temperature up to 110* F. for typical household chores.

Seems like it might be a good accessory for cycling enthusiasts:

Best practice for heavy sweaters

Wash in woolite, cold water, lay flat on towel to dry..

Ride in the rain. We only have 2 conditions for most of the year - hot and 100% humidity and rain. Normally you get both in the same afternoon. Leave when it's sunny and come back in a torrential downpour - the bike is clean and you are nice and cooled down.
