When Is the Best Time to Wash My Car?

man washing car wheelsWashing a car might seem like a simple task that can be done anytime provided that you have water, soap or car shampoo and a sponge or a soft brush, but like with any cleaning jobs, there is a best time for it as well – here are a few tips about how to pick it:

  • In summer, wash your car in the morning – when the weather is hot, water tends to evaporate faster and the car body may also become too hot, processes that may leave behind stains.
  • Choose a day that is not too sunny – strong direct light might prevent you from seeing stains that you need to remove and it makes polish and wax more difficult to apply in an even layer.
  • Choose a day that is not windy – wind carries particles, such as sand and dust, that may stick to the washed surfaces of the car, causing scratches if you don’t notice the deposits and you scrub too vigorously.
  • In winter or in colder periods, pick a day that is not too cold because the water used for the cleaning may freeze and transform into a thin layer of ice on the surface of the car body, causing more harm than good.
