Yes - probably obvious stuff to most - but I, for one, have definitely been out there washing my Onto EVs more in the last 9 months than I did my previous ICE over 6 years and the one before that over 12 years!!

(Before that I had a couple of TVRs, the first black - God did I used to get sick of cleaning them :joy::joy::joy:)

My top tip?

Choose a car in a nice bold colour - or a nice shiny black…. :thinking::joy:

And get out there cleaning down in the rain whenever it comes!

I so enjoyed one evening this week washing that Saharan dust off the black roof while it was raining around me…… is that too odd? :man_shrugging:

I did the same thing. Soaked a sponge in car shampoo, a quick wipe over and let the rain do the rinsing. My neighbour’s were looking out of the window laughing at me!

This has strictly nothing to do with me being on a water meter. It’s actually very quick to do, as you’re not messing around with buckets and/or hoses.


Me too.
Grandmasuec thought I was mad but asked if I would wash the front bungalow windows as well and yes I did.:older_man:
