I just hand washed my car for the first time in years. When you wash your car, do you it by hand or go to the car wash?
Ah yes those were the days. But now it's more relaxing just to be outside no one around and become one with the sponge in soapy water.
In the summer by hand
Hand. Gets it cleaner
Do it by hand. It's my stress reliever! Wax on wax off!
By hand. I can do a thorough job and it keeps me aware of the condition of the paint etc.
Car wash, I make a terrible mess in everything I do
I don't do that anymore. I don't care enough about the improved results over automated washing to warrant the effort. :-(
I use to do it by hand. I discovered that life is too short to waste time things that don't matter. Drive through when needed. My last two cars sold for over bluebook and looked great!
I haven't done that since I was a young devil dog, single, stuck on base on Saturday without anything to do or money to do it with.
I used to hand wash it back in FL, but out here in TX it gets dirty almost on a daily basis. So I just have a monthly pass to an automatic car wash.
Machines in the winter, hand in the summer.
I'm 5'2 and drive an SUV. It takes a stepladder for me to reach a lot of areas. Car wash is easier.
It was a family event this evening, for me and my girls.
Do you let a machine was your kids? Or your puppy? I think not.
I usually do it by hand. However, when we sold my car, Swervin took me through my first car wash ever. It was pretty cool.
I would if I could....
Only I wash my car the right way. Hand wash always and forever.
I don't even park by trees or plants and my car seems to be covered in pollen every morning. Hate it.
Neither.......once a week at my local detail shop which hand washes. I can't imagine doing it myself, nor putting it through a car wash
Both, and I do it once a week
Hand wash. It's the best way to check it closely for chips or other areas that need attention.
My husband hand washes our vehicles.
Impressive! I wish I had that kind of dedication!
Yeah, I didn't realize how many scuffs and scratches are covered by grime!
Nice poll, I was just thinking of this as I hand washed and detailed my wife's car yesterday. I guess it's a hobby. Can't stand dirty cars. And it's a lot of work to keep them clean in Colorado.
