I recall cleaning my car on real icy day earlier this year. Noticed that the pre-wash that I'd applied by a pump sprayer hadn't dried at all, even after 10 minutes. In fact it had frozen solid. Melted with a blast from the PW and I had to use warm water in my wash bucket, which is something I never normally do.

A barmy 19°C outside today at Soft 99 HQ, just right for lunch in the grounds of Osaka Castle! =]

I do hope it lasts until next week, which will be spent testing our LSPs and glass treatment products at the R&D centre...

Can you fully submerge these in your wash bucket rojer?

My missus says I'm crazy for spending 4 hours per car when I do a wash day.

Warm water in buckets though in this weather!

Needs must, just remember to get all the water out of the jet wash when finished to prevent damage

No weather will stop me playing with my car. Been changing down pipes in the rain at 21:00 in the dark. Changed rear brake calliper today. Washing is the same rain or shine. Just adjust method and products to suit weather.

Out again this morning, 3c when I started. Just back from a 50 mile round trip, and looks exactly as it did before I started! Love this time of year

Weather's mild tomorrow! I'll be spending the day on the car, with warm water mind.

I will be out later today to give mine at least a rinse, but if I get time it will be a full wash normal.
