When  Is The  Best Time To Wash Your Car?

Grime, dirt, mud,  and even pollen  can all take a toll on your vehicle's paint. Washing your car regularly not only keeps it clean but  also reduces the risk of corrosion, rust, and damage to the body. But when is the best time to wash  your car?


One common misconception  is that you should wash your vehicle around midday during summer months. But midday  is when temperatures run the hottest, so the soap will dry  before you even have the chance to rinse off, leaving water spots and soap stains. Washing your  car in direct sunlight also makes dust and grime more difficult  to see, so dirty areas may be  left uncleaned.

Even in moderate temperatures, wind gusts can blow dust and pollen onto your vehicle before it has even dried, causing it to stick to the paint. Pollen's high acidity can facilitate rapid oxidation of the paint and even just one single grain of pollen can lead to noticeable scratches. If you live in an area with lots of trees and plants, you'll need to clean off pollen and dirt regularly to prevent exposure to rust and corrosion.

For the best results, wash your car  in the summer during moderate temperatures in the mid-morning, evening, or on a cloudy day when there is little direct sunlight and  low winds.


While pollen is a problem  in the summer, road salt,  ice, and excess moisture  can cause rust to develop in the winter. During the  cold season, the best time to wash your car is earlier in the day when temperatures are  above freezing. This will allow your car to dry as temperatures begin to rise.
