What's the deal with using the wipers? I don't get it.

Easy, I clean cars every day so my solution is to just not wash my car. Makes life so much easier.
I enjoy the rubbish the kids leave in the back, the wife's rubbish all over the passenger area. My area in the car is clean so all is good, in actual fact my area with the steering wheel is the only area I clean.

Everything! Get away from my car! Arrrrgh!

Washing the windscreen, glad to find it's not just me.

High speed driving - nice dirty drops of spray collecting on the boot.

Birds, passengers, leaves from trees, shutting doors/boot.

opening windows and leaving streaks (my passengers are learning that windows are for looking through, climate control is for cooling down)

Oddly, the one I don't mind, even though all my non-detailing friends like to point out that it's happening after I just washed the car, is rain... Doesn't really do any harm, and I can admire the beading while checking I haven't missed anywhere. As long as I don't have to go anywhere, that is. Dirty spray!

Not that I want you to leave or anything, but are you sure you're on the right forum?

The wipers one is a biggie for me.

When you've just got the car nice and clean, then you're driving along a see a massive puddle that you know you can't avoid

Also, girlfriend's make up covered hands. I've noticed all girls leave make up finger prints after them. Like the way a dog keaves it's scent

Couldn't you save up a collection of her hair and clone her?

Not trying hard enough!


Post clean things I hate are, back ache and not having a cold beer in the fridge.
