I know there's no 'right' way , but , I'll keep doing it like I have for the last 50 ish years without a problem or the aggravation of zip ties or special 'spoons' . The only time consuming thing is grabbing the dish soap as I pass through the kitchen and remembering to put it back .
As for not using water , that's a joke isn't it ? If it were true , you should never go through a mud puddle or even think about washing the bike , let alone leaving it in the rain . ;)
