My car is definitely a babe....i mean dust magnet!

MrTackalakalaka Jun 28, 2012

  1. Cleaned my car last week, spent all day doing the outside and was very happy with it.

    I have only been in my car once since i cleaned it and drove about 5 miles (it was dry as well)

    Woke up this morning and couldn't believe the state of my car, its depressing! haha

    Same thing down here in Plymouth, heard reports of it happening in Bristol and wales.

    I think it happened to most of the UK.

    I still got my bucket, big yellow sponge and tesco value washing up liquid.

    Im in SE Kent (ct18 area)

    Thanks though as I just remembered I need to go and buy a big yellow sponge :)
    well 2 actually- 1 for the car and 1 for wheels! Lol
    my car is also like yours OP so it's not personal ;)

    It's been mostly over cast with the odd spell off rain every now and again...23 degrees down here ATM so a quick wash later and she should be back to the babe magnet instead of dust! Haha

    My car lives infront of a row of trees.
    I washed it and whilest i was doing the inside i could see the sap forming on my windscreen.
    Less then 24 hours later, bird **** all over the bonnet.
    The frustration and pain like you are suffering is constant for me. Time to get a car cover.
