      Car Wash Survey!!

      Hello fellow car enthusiasts...

      I was washing my car yesterday and got interrupted like 5 times in between; couple of phone calls and other household interuptions.

      Just got this thought of putting up a survey on 'car washing'

      1. How often do you wash your car?

      2. Do you wash your car yourself or assigned person/watchman or professional car wash?
      • If you wash your car yourself - which method of car wash you do?
      • If a assigned person does a car wash - does he use car wash shampoo and wash mitt?
      • If you go to professional car wash - how much does he charge or how much is worth investing in a car wash?


      3. How much time do you take to wash your car?

      4. How often do you wax your car after a car wash?

      Wanted to know your opinion guys, your valuable insights will help me maintaing my new car in the future and might help others too.

      Looking forward...

      I wash everyday with normal water. Weekends, shampoo wash.

      Everyday wash(no shampoo)- 15 mins
      Weekend wash shampoo + interior cleaning + sometimes pressure washer - 1hr

      Wake up at 5:30 in the morning and wash your car. No one will disturb you. I follow this

      Plain water wash.

      Half an hour if I'm not doing the wheels. With wheels, it takes around 40 minutes - and this is my biggest gripe.

      QD - maybe once a month. Proper polishing & waxing - around once in every 3-4 months.

      I dont wash regularly . Used to have a guy who washes daily. Post the polishing and waxing, no one washes it any more. I wash it occasionally on weekends whenever i get time. If it gets too dirty during weekdays, i use QD and wipe off.

      Time taken for full wash and quick wax - 2 hours with by bro helping for buffing off.

      Time taken for QD wipe : 30 Minutes.

      And i dont wash my alloys regularly. The dogs in my area dirties them within few minutes after i wash them. So i just leave it like that.

      Wash Frequency: 2-3 times a month
      Washed by: Self
      Wash Method - 2 bucket method using Megs Nxt shampoo
      Washing time: 2-3 hours
      For time between washes: Use Jopasu duster+home-made detailer with wet MF for general cleaning
      Mostly after every wash. Megs UQW used till now. Will expand the process the next time I wash as now I have got most of the detailing kit stuff.

      I wash my cars myself once in a month with the diluted ONR in a two bucket method. Had fired the car wash guy after my first detailing session with kmoh around 2 years back. During rains i have to wash more frequently. It takes me approx 1 hour per car.
      I apply a wax once in 2 months or sometimes earlier also, if needed.
      For daily cleaning i rely on my jopusa duster. If there are some marks then i use my trusted detailer (diluted ONR) with the blue MF cloth.

      Car 1:
      3 times a week. washed only externally by a guy in office parking. Plane water only.

      Car 2:
      Once in 2-3 weeks with plane water. Once in 2-3 months, i use Formula1's car shampoo.
      washed by myself.
      Each wash takes about 45 minutes including interior and exterior cleaning. No tyre cleaning.
      US MF towel to buff it dry.
