I arrived home from work and it was very overcast overhead and it was raining a small amount. It looked like a heavy shower was on the way. My car was very dirty and in a desperate need of a clean. It seems that every old car garage or car car dealer has turned into a handwash car cleaning company, charging £5 or so.
Instead of waiting for a dry day, getting out a bucket of soap, hot water and hose pipe, I decided to clean it there and then. Here’s what I did, I simply used a sponge and went around the car removing the dirt and letting the rain (now getting heavier) to wash off the lose dirty water. Whilst the result wasn’t exactly a showroom finish, it took only a few minutes and no doubt I have saved somewhere in the regions of 500 litres of mains water. I also saved the £5 as well.
