Mission Impossible: Cleaning stock GSR rims.

I guess these rims are made with tiny baby hands in mind because I can't fit my (average sized) hand between the spokes to clean them with a wash mitt. Anyone have any suggestions on how to wash off all the brake dust from the entire wheel without much effort?
Any specific product work really well for anyone?

I personally use all Chemical Guys Products. Both of there wheel brushes slide into the spokes easily.

Get a Speed Master wheel brush or some wheel woolies and a good wheel cleaner like Sonax full effect.

I use sonax full effect when my wheels are very dirty. For my weekly cleaning, I use autoglym wheel cleaner mixed 50/50 with water.
