Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: Do you wash your own vehicle(s) or do you go to a carwash?
Of all the things we don't do well, keeping our vehicles clean is one of them. Sometimes we wash them in the driveway and other times we go to the car wash. We don't do it nearly often enough though.

  1. What is this washing your car thing that you speak of?

    You should see mine now... covered in pollen. srsly. My Dad hoses it off all the time but at this time of year we have a few months of pollen. It's awful.

    I hire someone, usually Al's neighborhood kid so he can earn a few bucks. And Al can teach him the value of doing a good job and the value of a hard-earned dollar.

    Have a lovely day. big hugs from me and the Gs. xoxo

  3. a little of both. In the summer I normally wash it myself but in colder weather we go to the car wash. I hate to have the car covered in all that road salt and gunk in the winter but I'm not about to stand outside in the wind with a hose :)

  4. Woof! Woof! My dad loves and enjoys washing our cars (weather permitting) and I supervise cause I am a frequent passenger. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. My husband prefers washing our vehicles himself but will go to a car wash in the winter when it's below 50 degrees.

  6. Both. Certainly, when I am going to wax the car, I will wash it myself. Other days, I may run it through an automatic wash.

  8. I can't wash my car, it has all those cute paw prints on it and we sure can't wash them away. But probably they would be right back on there in no time at all. I wash the car every few years whether it needs it or not. Take care.

  9. I like washing it myself on a nice warm sunny summer day. But in the winter I take through the car wash. Since we moved down south, I don't have to do that nearly as much as I did up north! :-)

  10. Yes. Weather dependent.

  11. I get the car cleaned and washed alternate days by our servant and pay him on monthly basis. Once in a way I give the car for routine service and maintenance to my mechanic's shop for a nominal charge.

  12. I wash them in the summer, but in the winter I use the dealer and gas stations that offer it. Too cold here in the winter and the hose is in the garage for winter. I live at 6000 feet and there's still a couple of feet of snow.

  13. Before I got up this morning, I was lying in bed, and thought- Today is Sandee's ? day. lol

    We have a neighborhood guy do it. He cleans the outside for $5 and the inside for $5. Does a great job and he needs the cash.

  14. That's an easy one for me I do't have one but if I did I would definitely go to a carwash cue song

    Have a cleancartastic day ;-)

  15. When Walter is home he usually washes it himself and gives it a good cleaning on the inside too.

    I always make a mess when I am out back roading and chasing birds and things.

    I like to go through the car wash. I go to McDonald's first, and get a nice very large iced coffee, and then get my car washed!:-)

  16. Thanks for the reminder to hit the car wash. I've had my jeep for a year and it needs some serious detailing. When I got it from the kids, it was gently used, complete with grandbaby crumbs. LOL!

  17. Definitely the car wash, for Mrs. Chatterbox's car anyway. I never wash MY car.

  18. Car wash, and an occasional professional cleaning inside and out.

    Big sunny hugs, honey...

  19. okay- before we moved from the metro area of Portland Oregon we took our car to be washed on a regular basai (when it got dirty it got washed) now that we live in the hinterlands of the Mt Shasta California area there are no car washes that do a decent job for 20 miles. I have to plan my car getting washed around having enough errands/shopping to warrant the 20 mile drive.

  20. Usually wash my car about twice a year unless I have to attend a funeral then its 3 times.

  24. I wash it myself, but not as much as I should.

  25. I generally wash the cars. I wash my Mustang a lot and like to keep it looking nice for 'Top Down Days.'

    It doesn't like to go out in the rain but once in a while it has to. If it gets wet I towel it down. I also wipe the garage dust off with towels.

    The Mustang now has 99,6xx miles on it. It is 15 years old (a '98) but when I got it at age two it already had 49,000.

    Mrs. Jim's Car, a.k.a. The Family Car, I generally keep washed too. But not nearly as good as the Mustang. Occasionally Mrs. Jim washes it but I have to go over it with a towel and sponge because she leaves spots.

    Oh yes, we/I wash in the driveway.
