What about all that water freezing on the ground afterwards (or during)? Sounds a recipe for an accident...

Put simply, it needs to be in the morning and in milder conditions, like 8 to 10 degrees.

I have a car left with me where it may be sat for a day or so before I come to first touch it and the whole car may end up being completely frosted over. When I clean it (forgive my terminology with the word clean), the water will freeze as will the bubbles from the shampoo. Also I've found in the past that the product I use for the sealant and also the glass cleaner doesn't react very well with the cold temperature.

What would you recommend?


Thank you.
I'd recommend waiting til conditions are better and not risk tarnishing your reputation doing a half assed job.
I understand work is work but the negatives far outweigh the positives in this situation.

There's to be no frost or bitterly cold conditions for the next 6-7 days in the UK. Go to the met office website and check your location for yourself. If these jobs are to be completed in the next 6-7 days then frost won't be an issue.

As soul boy 68 said you need to be looking for 8-10 degrees. Anything below and simply wiping off QDs etc becomes damn near impossible. It would be ok if you were doing your own car getting salt or muck off of it however doing a car for someone is different. You’ll not give yourself a chance of doing a good job and it would cost you in the long run. If you’re selling yourself as better than the local supermarket scratch and shine then you need to make sure you are so it’s not worth it.
