The washing and drying of an airliner can be a long process, sometimes taking between 8 and 24 hours to wash and dry. Because of the sheer scale of even smaller aircraft, using an absorbent material such as sawdust or shavings will make the process a lot more streamlined.

The location for washing aircraft is often determined by which airport they will laying over at for at least eight hours at a time. For example, a global airline such as United Airlines has wash locations in fourteen airports around the world including Houston, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sao Paulo.

For a widebody aircraft, a crew of three to five people will be required to a clean the plane with a mixture of an extension pole, cleaning detergent, high lifts and aircraft brushes.
