Default Washing the car

How often do you wash your car?


I wash my car every other day I guess that is why all my cars the paint job looks pretty new. Plus I find all the chips and i fix them before they get worst.

Well my car is a daily driver. So, this time of year (winter), it's very hard to wash my car as much as I'd like.

But, when there is nice weather (spring, summer, fall), I actually don't wash it that often. When I do, I usually use a rinseless wash such as DP's 4 and 1.

I do use a lotttttt of Poorboy's Spray and Wipe though. It's a very good waterless product. It's basically inbetween a quick detailer and rinseless wash. Good to lift light dusting, fingerprints, etc. etc. It adds no protectant (or very very minimal), so usually I apply something afterwards.

I wash my car once a week, but I do give it a good going over. A good wash of the fenderwells, wheels,tires, interior vacume. Then I spray the fenderwells with the ArmourAll tirefoam. Tires with Meguires,Insane Shine and windows with Stoner's Invisable Glass. And A good wax once a month. Also forgot to mention I use Meguires
products for the dashboard and other interior plastics ,door trims console etc.........

I wash my car at least once a week. I work in the recon department at a car dealership and we have an automatic car wash, so I have been spoiled for a while. Even when I quit that job for a while, I still tried to take the car to the car wash every week. It's a daily driver, but it's also my baby.. lol.
