How do you wash your car?

Other than the hosing and splashing and scrubbing and then wax on and wax off pampering?  ;D

I love to do manual car wash whenever I have time, but that is becoming a thing of the past with my current busy schedules. mainly because I do not want to be at the car wash alone at the ungodly hours or the car wash self-service places are closed already by the time I am done with the work and chores.

I do not have time to park my car at the PAID full manual car wash and detailing services because it can take hours even though the outcome is fantastic! The price is high for a quality wash and detail, but I do not mind the rice fitting the outcome quality! The problem is TIME!

I have tried Chevron's alike full car wash services. I like them. Depends on my needs I can choose the package I want, but I always go for at least the package with undercar and wheels wash. Then the extra polish and shine service package if available (but that is rare with automated services). What I like here is REAL FULL SERVICE - washing to free dryer machine!

My dad's recently referred to a partial-service car wash service. The price is similar to full automated services. How it work is, you line up near the washing machine - well, not the washing machine machine but you get me point  :lmao: - and a staff starts hosing your car body and probably even scrubbing your wheels. Then you go into the machine. After that, drying is on your own but they do provide towels.  :idk: I am no slacker but just weird drying the car my own when it was not even me who washed it, so to speak. If I feel like so to dry my own, I would have also scrubbed and washed the car my own too! I do not trust the machines 100% and is looking forward to "scratches from the machine:, but if the person would have scratched or made something loose during scrubbing, call me weird, but I would have been more  :facepalm:  >:(  :CRYING:

How have you been washing your car, if or when you do?!

Nope. I am the worst. I've had my truck for one year and when Ford came here and serviced it the guy said my truck sure was nice looking and I told him it hasn't been washed since I left the dealership. He could not believe it. I do use a pressure hose when it needs spraying off, but it almost always looks clean.

Yep, I am terrible about washing my vehicles. :lmao:

:lmao:  :rock: to the solid long term shine!! I think even 1-2 washes prior or newer cars since years ago come with coating that makes it glossy or keeping the shine or clean look (reflecting through dusts  ;D  )!

I was worried and had biased view of the partially-automated, but here, I found Delta Sonic Car Wash. Actually nice! Washed after that 5 days trip!

Well, more than good enough for me!
- So you pay and line up
- staffs do hose your wheels and what other parts they can
- all automated for the wash!
- drive out and a dedicated staff who wiped your whole car few times manually with towels! (I tipped)
- and go and park at one of those huge vacuum section, kinda sci-fi feel and have a blast on your own!  :rock:
