    Default why is my car the dirtiest in the street?

    o.k. I will come clean, Its nearly 3 weeks since I washed it, but no ****** else in the street ever gets out there and washes theirs, and theirs are all cleaner than mine?
    Looks like its been raining sand?! just on my car?
    Ah well, lets hope its dry Sunday for me to wash & wax..........

    but surely ( and no I didnt call you shirley ), if its washed & waxed regularly it should be repelling half of the crud?
    To make matters worse , I cant use a hose , so I rely on the 12 bucket method!

    Had the same dusty rain over here in Gloucester. Mind you, it just meant there was a dusty residue on top of the existing winter crud!! Must get the bucket and shampoo out!!

    Well, cleaned the inside tonight when I came home from work, so tomorrow I can give it a good wash n wax.
    It looks as though the dirty rain beaded, and left spots of the reddish brown dirt ....nice look on a silver car!!!!!
    Maybe nobody else in the street had enough wax on their cars to get the same effect?????
