I dunno where the missus got it, but you can get washing brushes for most power sprayers--just be careful with the sprayer itself and never use too fine a point as it will remove decals, trim, etc.
As for drying, I use the same step stool, but have discovered that a leaf blower works really well for removing all but the last few drops. From there, a chamois or even synth chamois gets rid of the last and preps it nicely for waxing--where I'm still struggling with semi-liquid nanowax or good old fashioned carnauba.
