Agreed, just get a garden hose on it and some Muc-Off.

Jet washers are ok if your careful with them and don't start blasting the bearing points, but be ready to give it a good service afterwards as well. Bucket and a sponge/brushes works best for me, then a rinse with the hose.

Take it from your initial query you must live in a flat, as no garden or outside tap available..

As mentioned above, using a high powered jet anywhere near the BB or pivot points and bearings will destroy them very quickly, just if you have to use one do so with care., As your next post maybe to ask where the best LBS is to fix said knackered bearings :-)
