Car cleaning ‘must be done on a regular basis’

It is important that drivers wash their cars regularly rather than waiting until they are caked in mud, it has been claimed.

According to an entry on the blog, the benefits of doing this are two-fold.

First is the fact that the motor will look better if it is washed with car shampoo on a regular basis, while the second advantage is that it will make subsequent washes easier.

"Very dirty cars are harder and take longer to clean. They also have a higher chance of having damage to the paint, as dirt acts as an abrasive to the wax, polish and even the paintwork," the source added.

Another way to protect a vehicle is to cover it, as this will stop the sun's UV rays from fading the paint and also guard against damage from rain, the article noted.

Rich White, executive director of the Car Care Council, said recently that keeping a motor clean fosters a sense of pride in the owner.
