I don't have anybody else wash my cars. Only me.
And I manage to do it only once in 2 months, I need to improve :-)

Thanks. Now will see if I can wash it this way. Problem is drying it in my place.

Post Re: How often do you wash your car ?

Lucky enough to have engaged 2 of our apartment complex's security guards to wash our cars in the morning. As a result, all our cars get a bath 6 days of the week i.e. Monday through Saturday. Sundays they get a quick dry wipe down from me.

I also ensure I get the interior vacuumed once a week from him.

Once every 2 months or so, a thorough wash and interior shampooing from the professionals is in order.

I get my car washed by a guy (used to be 3 times a week). now after some water shortage issues in Pune, our society has made rules that cars can be washed only 2 days/week. I support that as I see car-washing as a very wasteful activity - especially when people just dump buckets of water and then wipe it rather than wiping with a wet cloth.

Often though on his designated days my car isn't parked at my home so I end up cleaning (nor washing) it myself.

The car is washed daily by the building guy, not bad at Rs.600/- bucks a month.
Once a week, the car gets pressure diesel wash to get rid of the grime at the hard to reach places. Usually, I'm never happy with this kind of wash especially for the shoddy job done to the interiors. However, can't expect much at Rs.350/- so then I have to go over the interiors myself. When the car was not being used daily like 2 years ago, it was twice a week.

My car gets washed by the 'washing boy' once a week, for 200/- a month. Though it's inexpensive, quality of the wash is poor. I once saw him drop a wet towel onto the floor (unpaved), he picked it up, shook it a couple of times and resumed his wiping! I continue with him because it is very difficult for me to find the time to do it myself. Car gets a professional pressure wash every 4-5 months.

Mine is once in every 2 weeks because of the fear of hard water damaging the car. Get it done outside always. Previously it was once a week and I did it myself
