It can be very dirty but if dirt or mud is caked on you need to rinse it first. Heavy dust and dirt are no problem...you just have to have a couple of wash mitts on hand and possibly change the wash solution midway thru the wash job. Do a pre-rinse if it very gritty or sandy but you wipe the solution on with a mitt and wipe it off with a microfiber.
I use one mitt on the upper parts of my truck and another mitt on the lower ⅓ and when I use ONR on my wheels I use a dedicated mitt just for the wheels.
It takes me 20 minutes to do my black truck so it's easy to clean it more often with no water hose and I drive on Firebreaks almost daily.
Just remember the dirtier the vehicle is the more you may need to change (or wash out) mitts or solution.
