How often do you wash your car/get it washed?

Never really thought about this before but I've recently encountered someone who washes his car twice a week, full on polish and hoover inside as well, without fail. He doesn't do much mileage either. Just a standard commute and he does a few days from home now with Covid ongoing.

I've always just done it as and when. Look at the car and think "Probably needs a clean at the weekend, that."

Even for car enthusiasts twice a week must be excessive?

I can't remember the last time I washed it. It's dirty at the moment but is due a service and MOT before the end of the month, so I'll tidy it up before it goes to the garage.

Every couple of weeks weather permitting.

It has to be spotless inside as well - always do it mesen as I find it therapeutic.

Minted the wife’s car about July - it’s a fucking hen shed again and it can stay that way. She can pay the Latvians.

About once a year I get the urge. If there isn't a queue at the car wash, the car gets washed. If not, it'll have to wait until the urge comes again.

I'm a bit suspicious of folks who keep their cars too clean. Twice a week is the 4th point in the Macdonald Triad.

If it’s a car I like and I’m proud of, once a week or once a fortnight. If it’s a car I don’t give a fuck about, never.
