Preload your body with ibuprofen, add Watkins Red Liniment to the wash water, etc. Put the vehicle in park/exit and wash the top, then drive it up on a set of ramps for the lower part.

...or just slug thru it and go in the house and moan for the next day or so.

Even putting Jet Dry in the rinse water and using a leaf blower still leaves residue. Less than a commercial spray wash, but non-zero.

What we need is someone with a 3D printer to produce a soft plastic product that can take changeable diaper inserts that fits into the entire honycomb and out in one swift pass.
