Question dirty undercarriage prevention tips??

Anyone have tips on types of things you can spray on the undercarriage of atv's, prior to riding them, to help the mud come off easier when weashing it. Do ya'll think spraying the undercarriage (frame, shocks, wheels etc..) with wd40 would help with this without damaging rubber bushings or other things? Any tips or things that you do would be appreciated. I know its an atv, but would like to maintain it and keep it as clean as possible when done riding.

I use Pam cooking spray or WD 40. Both work well.

Pam sounds like a good one. Just don't want anything that may harshly affect the rubber cv boots or other items. Can't see how Pam would hurt them.

Any cooking spray...its only vegy oil. Makes the mud slide right off.
WARNING!!! May cause an increase in appetite while on the trail!

I like the PAM idea. WD-40 isn't bad, but one of our guys in the shop said he likes to put marine grade grease on the bushings, seals and anything else rubber before spraying his down. No hard evidence that it WD-40 would break down your rubber parts, by why chance it?
