I wash my car once a week. How often does everyone here wash their car? How long does it take you? Just wondering.

at least once a week. sometimes two. but this week i haven't been driving the car so it won't need a wash
my neighbors think i am psycho because i wash the car more than i wash myself. oops too much information.

the wash ususally takes about 1.5 hrs (includes tire refinishing). if i detail and wax, add another 2-3 hrs. but that is usually no more than once a month.

atleast once a week. usually wash once a week, dust everyday, and rims every few days or so. a wash for me takes about 2-3 hours. dusting takes i would say 20mins and for the rims, it takes me about 20-30mins (including tire dressing)

if the car is "strictly" dusty (like pollen etc, this does not mean dirty) i use one of those swiffer micro pocket dry cloths. I do it very very gently and let the cloth do the work. One cloth can pick up a whole car amount of dust.
