Post travel car cleaning

Postby DR KOKIL AGARWAL » Wed May 17, 2017 11:44 am

After even a small journey the car becomes dirty and messy. Cleaning your car can be a major task that requires a lot of energy and hard work.

This is something that I dint enjoy doing at all. But if I own a car and travel with it then I have to do the cleanings as well , both the interior as well as the exterior.

Do you enjoy cleaning your car?

When I used to own a car cleaning it was something I never looked forward to doing as it takes too long for me. Maybe I would need a strategy for the process to go by faster or maybe time seems to go too slow since I don't enjoy it at all. Cleaning a car is one of the toughest chore for me, I sometimes wish they cleaned themselves haha.

Yes it is not kind of enjoyment for sure. Though we have to go for it, lol. Normally I do clean on next day as I don't want to do it on same day after getting tired from the travelling. So I do it on next morning, I used to do it with water pipe so it make the whole process fast and easy. Sometimes if car is quite messy from inside and outside, I used to put it in service so that it can get cleaned from inside and outside properly. We can't clean our car from inside properly so better to use such paying service in that case.

LOL, I am yet to meet someone that enjoys cleaning, but it's something we really need to do, because there aren't many people who feel comfortable living in a mess either. So let's say I do it gladly because I want to keep my car clean, but it's certainly an obligation.
I love most outdoor activities!

It may seem strange (at least that's what my family, my friends and my girlfriend say to me :lol: ), but I love washing my car. I feel good because it's an activity that gives me a great pleasure.

If I have to wash my car after a long trip, I feel even more pleasure because I just did something else that I really like: traveling.

It's tiring (I can't disagree with that), but I really like it.

I have to be honest that I don't enjoy cleaning our car. But I am lucky because we have 2 housemaids who can do it for me. All I do is to hose down the dirt of the car and apply shampoo. The drying is the chore of our housemaid. But when we come home from a vacation in a beach resort, it is my habit to bring the car to a car wash for thorough cleaning because salt water can cause corrosion of the metal.

After a long travel especially one through rough terrains or desert regions our car would go terribly rough out and in especially on the outside. I do not like seeing the car dirty. I always make sure to wash the body and interiors clean. It could be a bit of labor, I just like seeing my car clean and well kept always

Same for me. Cleaning the car always sucks and I always end up in a bad mood after doing it. It would be really a blessing if we had a robot doing the stuff for us. Travelling by car is real fun buy cleaning up the car is the deadliest thing especially for me.

Of course I would also start with the cleaning with the cleaning process the next day only. For me what is difficult is cleaning the inside of the car. The outside can be easily cleaned by water but cleaning the inside is what sounds really tedious.

Yes cleaning from inside is not that easy, that's why I used to put my car for paid service where it can be washed from outside and inside both. But yes we can't use that paid service for all time. Rarely it is okay.
I know few people who used to wash their car immediately after any journey. I wonder how they handle all those things. I mean do it just after travelling is surely tiring stuff for me.
