    To hot to wash!!!!!

    Might be just me or maybe not BUT
    I hate washing the car in the sun mainly due to the water drying of the car to fast.
    Hosed down, Snow Foamed, went in to get my bucket filled. Came out and car is dry.... So another hose down, do one side then round the other side DRY.!!
    Fighting a losing battle. Even worse trying to dry it so no water spots appear.
    Just as well I could get the car inside to dry it.

    sorry for the long story but sometimes washing the car in the winter is easier.

    I always wash my car in stages in this weather from the roof down. Never use snowfoam in this heat though, waste of time!

    Haha don't worry Sandra, I never jinks anything it will get Warner now

    The main reason for snow foam was to blast off all the bugs. Never done to much good though. After a wash and polish its all dusty again grr..

    Take it to a car wash and ask the owner if you can hand wash it in there.

    Best done in cool of the evening, or if you're an early bird, at dawn. Some mornings at 6am the air and light has been perfect.
