Clean everything with baby towels
What kind of wipes should I use to clean a bicycle with disposable wipes?
I'm the guy who doesn't have time to clean my bike after every ride in the rain. It struck me that there are probably "bike wipes" like the ones there are nowadays for everything else that can help me get the bike super fast. There are, but then I started reading that a lot of people use baby wipes to do the same thing.
Are baby wipes the way to go, or should I buy motorcycle degreasing wipes etc? I plan to lubricate parts that will need it later.
Ideally, I'd like a wipe that can be safely used on the frame and that can also remove dirt from the drivetrain.

Of course, you can use wet wipes. Although it is certainly no faster than very quick and gross techniques, such as simply pouring water over it.
Using cloths is certainly less effective than pouring water over the bike, whipping it with an old rag, and wiping the drivetrain with another.
A thorough cleaning can be done in three and a half minutes.
Finally, there is the amazing panacea for all of our dirt-related problems, the Jet Wash!

Simply wipe the bike down with a rag or disposable paper towels, making sure to wipe the chain (without overdoing it). The bike does not need to be washed or cleaned perfectly.
The ideal for daily washing is Jetwash, it's relatively cheap (there are places in France where you can do this for 50 ct), it's ecological, it's fast and there is no problem for the machine.
For more drastic washing, I go straight to acetone. You don't need a lot of it, but it's great for the grease / brake dust build-up, wheels too (you might want to remove the tires before you make the wheels, but otherwise not a problem). It's less costly than wipes, less complicated (because wipes tend to tear in some places which is difficult), and you don't need a lot of it, so it's not that bad for the planet (as it is for the annual / semi-annual Cleaning is)
