Clean a holic

Is it me or does anyone else wipe their car down with Detail spray after they drive it?

I drive mine everyday, and unless its raining. I wipe the dust and bugs off of my car when I get home. Who else does this?

yep wash it once a week rain or shine, california car dust it daily between washes and dress the tires. And yes I get the same eye roll and a "what are you doing" comment from the wife! Glad I'm not the only one.

When I was a kid, I used to wax my battery, exhaust and differential.
I still hand wash wheel wells and insides of the wheels and tires.
Another member on this forum also does this to his Camaro. Let's see if he replies.

Whewwwwwwwwwwwww......glad to see that I'm not a cleanaholic for doing this. My wife also rolls her eyes and says, it still looks like a car. The day she owns a Camaro, she will understand, but it will probably be me cleaning hers too.
