I was looking at my car, standing outside on the drive as usual and right now, after many weeks of no rain (yes really - my water butt is almost empty) down here in the SW UK, it's covered in ..... sand. I guess I'll have to go out and wash it - is that allowed, or 'non essential' :smile_big:

I wash mine twice weekly and spent Good Friday giving it a wash and polish and detailing inside and out.Its on my driveway so doesn’t count as going out.Also as a postman I’m a key worker so still going in every day.
Stay safe 😀

With sand it pays to just rinse it off with a hose thoroughly before washing as it prevents the sand from damaging your paintwork

I invested in one of these, which when connected to a 3lt coke bottle is enough to rinse off an deposits (sand or seagull).

With one of these in order to use a bottle:

But if your the type that balks at a £64 battery charger it's probably not for you.

But cleaning (although my car is ceramic sealed) takes a mere 3 mins with my car :)
