I do. I try to at least once a month. I got through the the automatic car wash. I usually choose the ulta wash were it puts wax on after the wash. How about you?

We have stopped going to the car wash for many years; we usually wash them at home. But we are both so lazy, that I can't remember when was the last time they got washed. Actually it's rather easy - hose, shampoo, sponge, then hose again! But you know laziness!

I dont take my car in the winter, since it would be dirty the next hour...but during the summer I probably take it to a car was every month... at least once. I may end up washing my car this year with my 2 kids out in the back yard... but it is nice to just drive through one car wash and 1 minute later your car is completely done...LOL

I take my car to the car wah during the winter too! I do that to get the road salt off! I try to do it after a snowstorm but that doesn't happen all the time!

we have one guy who comes to the house once a month to wash all of our cars but sometimes my car gets way dirty before he's scheduled to come so i wash it on my own.

No. I wash my own car. I got my own materials. Microfiber towels, wash mints and car shampoo.

nope, i don't take my car for car wash...i find it total waste of money. I wash my car on my own with soap and water and later wax it nicely. My car looks awesome after the wash and waxing. For the interiors I use hand vacuum to clean the leg area and seat covers. I find lot of satisfaction washing my car on my own. Actually , its quite feasable in the tough economic times, where every dollar counts, what say??

I take mine to the automatic wash when I can't stnd looking at the dirt on it anymore. That may be a week or a month, just whenever the mood strikes.

I usually watch my car at home because it is cheaper and I have a hose and well water. I live out in the country there is not even a carwash close by so there are some problems with that. I like to be able to wash my car at home and it is a good thing that I can.

Sometimes I take my car to the car wash. I don't take my car that often. Maybe once during the summer or something if my car is really covered in pollen and stuff then I take it so I know that I'm really getting everything off. Otherwise, if my car needs a rinsing, I turn the hose on and rinse my car off that way. It saves me money on going to the car wash since we don't have to pay for water.

I have taken my car through there maybe once.. It does a horrible job and never cleans more car right. But i mostly always clean my car with a bucket and rag about once a month.. But I love my car so that's why i do it so much.

Heck no I dont take my car to a car wash. Why do that and spend money when I can get a water hose and bucket and wash my car myself. Every once in a while, I may drop by a manual car wash but I never go to the automatic ones or to the ones where people run up and start washing it for me. I just wait for a nice day get a bucket of soap and water hose and start washing it. Well, if i have time anyway. I usually wash my car about 3 times a year. I do keep the trash out of the inside, but the outside get really dirty before I actually wash it...Oh well, we are not all perfect!!

I do sometimes. The kids love going through them. We go to one where it has 3-6 different colored soaps so that makes it that much more interesting. Other than that I will wash it at one of those self service places and the kids like to wash it sometimes too. They like to do it when its all hot outside.

My car gets washed one time a year. Yeah, I know that's lame, but it gets dirty so fast, I just can't be bothered to wash it all the time. It seems like everytime I wash it, it rains the very next day. It's a no win situation.
