    A Way to Properly Wash Your Vehicle in Cold Climates

    If it is snowing where you live AND you want a way to wash your car without swirls AND you don't want to do it in your garage (might be too full of other cars) AND, well, here is how we like to do it in our Michigan Winters

    Marc takes his GF's car to the quarter wash DIY bay with some good products from home and washes this Saab 9-3 in about 40 minutes at 25 degrees F. We hope this provides some good ideas for any of us who's OCD is affected by the weather.

    You COLD weather guys are just hardcore.

    Here in GA it just get's cold.

    For me, it's the garage with ONR, 2 buckets of warm water, and a forced air propane heater.

    Luckily, we pushed our annual snowmobile trip back one week this year. Where we are going next week is going to be -36* tonight. 36 degrees below zero with windchills in the -50 to -60 degrees.

    Forecast Conditions
    High °F -4
    Low °F -36


    That is hardcore and my vehicles will stay dirty until it warms up.

    Nice how to video.

    I would not usually be able to that around here because there is usually another vehicle in line behind me waiting to use the wash bay and the car washes all have signs stating no bucket washing while other customers are waiting.

    That would be a nice way to properly wash your vehicle in the winter if you can do it, though.

    Great video! I like how he explained all of the products in the beginning of the video. Most of these DIY car wash places have signs posted (No Bucket Washing).
