    Well Tuesday and wednesday this week are looking to be nice sunny days with a temp of 21c. Loveley car cleaning weather, if any southerner would like to come up north and buy some water I'm selling tap water from a pump for £1.32 a litre and £1.38 for water with additives.

    Shame on the hosepipe ban! (giggles)

    Hot days are the worst for cleaning cars!
    Have to rush everything to avoid water marks, polish drying out, you get hot etc.

    Much prefer an overcast day. Though i generally do all mine inside at work, with free water, jetwash etc ;)

    As I live down south, I am able to afford to buy premium mineral water with which to clean my car.

    200 bottles of Highland Spring does a great job.

    Tap water for washing cars is so last year!

    Dear Northers, Keep your water as us southerners can afford to buy water at £7 a Ltr as we got Jobs, Money and a winning football team!
