Its just me and not just because I absolutely love doing it but there is no help around. My wifi refuses to do it and says I will take care when we get our next brand new ride.

Do it around twice a month both insides and outside and every quarter with professionals.

Post Re: Who cleans your car(s) ?

Only three people clean our cars : I, Me, Myself!! My father does it at times but he is usually busy under the hood. So it's like me cleaning the outsides and interiors while my father takes care of all the stuff inside the bonnet.

The jopasu car duster cleans it on a daily basis . If it is washing, only I am authorized to do it. Once in a few months, even the 3M Car care guys are allowed to work on my car.

Default Re: Who cleans your car(s) ?

My washing guy is trained by me to use MF cloth, a proper washing mitt, carwash shampoo, and then top it up with wax I used to clean the cars myself and this fellow used to sit there and watch what I do, how I do and so on. These days, he does it himself except that I hose down all the dirt first as I have a water tank four floors high which gives a blast of water and its fun! Then he does everything else and hands over all the stuff back to me. Washing frequency depends upon how dirty the car is. If there is just dust it is removed by the duster. However, if there is mud or other stains then a proper hosing is done Waxing is done once in a month by both me and the washing guy and so is vacuuming and interior cleaning.
