I do love having a clean shiny car. I like even better having a clean shiny car that’s also possible to get into without climbing over bags of rubbish and dog associated hardware. I’m not sure why some folk treat their only vehicle as a dust cart – I’ve seen no end of vw golfs that look fabulous from the outside – a definitive outline . . . only to reveal the very spacious interior is completely submerged in school books, lunch bags, cartons etc. I take my car to a local cleaning company – they deal with automotives all the time and have a real grasp of the time it takes to do the skimming off of the dirt, rinse with hot spray, then 2 shampoos with rinses. After that they deal with the tyres and underneath the sides of the car. This is followed by a brisk hoover out of the boot space and very careful spry clean around the light clusters. Ah perfection!
