Joe’s Auto Sales has an awesome selection of used vehicles that look like they just rolled off the assembly line. Why do they look so nice? In addition to being thoroughly inspected by Joe’s Auto Sales, the vehicles on our lot were well maintained by their previous owners. And one of the best ways to keep your vehicle looking great is washing it.

How Often Should I Wash My Vehicle?

The frequency of washing your vehicle greatly depends on how much it comes into contact with nature. Throughout the spring and summer, your vehicle will be the target of bugs, and then salt when winter comes around. These elements are extremely corrosive and can damage your vehicle very if neglected. That is why we recommend washing your vehicle at least twice a month to keep it sparkling!

Bathing your vehicle should be considered an art form if you choose to do it yourself rather than take it to the local car wash. During the heat of the summer, plan on getting up early to wash your vehicle so that it won’t dry off too quickly, or else wait until the evening. Use a trusted brand of vehicle shampoo and washing mitts (make sure to use a different washing mitt when scrubbing the wheels). Wash your vehicle in sections and rinse as you go along. Remember to wax your vehicle twice a year to protect the paint!
