Is it the pollution or what? I have noticed that I am constantly having to go through the car wash and it seems that I am getting more dirt inside as well.Do you wash your own car or do you drive through and have it done?

I don't tend to clean my car because as fast as I clean it the fast it gets dirty, so I just cut out the middle man, me! It's a chore I hate doing and dare I say it, I let the rain clean it for me, the rain is great for washing cars and it doesn't waste my time either, it's natural, it's clean and it does the job, probably better than I can because whenever I used to clean my car, or attempt to clean my car, there would be smears and lines running all over! I hate cleaning the car windows as well! I have never put my car through a drive through because I am too stingy and once you have done it, the car soon gets dirty again, so there's no point!

We do not do the car wash, as hubby sells dri wash and guard. It is a waterless car wash.I think if you are in a very dry area, you will find more dust, or if you have to drive rural very much. That will make more dust inside your cars as well.

Wash my car? Nah, I buy a new one when it gets dirty! LOL Just kidding! Even if I could afford to do that, I wouldn't. That would just be silly and a waste of money! I wash mine myself, usually. I'll go through a carwash occasionally but normally like doing it myself. It can be fun, especially when you're able to grab someone else to do it with! I do it with my husband and son now... we all wash each other's cars together. Doing it that way makes it go faster and doesn't seem like work! Of course, we usually end up getting soaked in the process, but what fun! In the winter or just when the weather is cold, I'll go to a carwash. I do that a few times over the winter because of the salt they use on the roads getting on the car. A good wax job right before winter begins is a good idea. It puts a barrier between your car and the salt.

Now you are on to the right answer, I need a good wax job, before this weather gets completely nasty, but I like your idea, just get a new one everytime it gets dirty...lol thats too funny...good one ....
