There are a lot of reasons why a vehicle cannot be cleaned regularly – kids, super tight schedules, and a busy life. But there are also a whole lot of reasons why a vehicle owner should endeavor to keep his car tidy.

Carwash.org came up with a long list of why car owners should regularly wash and tidy up their cars.

“Protect your investment. The better the condition of your vehicle, the higher the resale or trade-in value. Depending upon the vehicle, regular cleaning can equate to thousands of dollars in value. Acid rain, road salt, bird droppings and sun damage are just some of the threats to your car’s condition that can be addressed by regular car care.”

It is Counterproductive to keep a dirty car

In its official website, Farmer’s Insurance reminded its clients and readers about the consequences of not cleaning their vehicles regularly.

“Resale Value – Even if you couldn’t care less about what your car looks like (rusty, yellow, dirty, whatever), you probably still give a hoot about its resale value. And it goes without saying that good looking, well cared-for cars sell for more than old rust buckets. So besides just causing damage to paint, or spreading rust, a dirty car could eat into your pocket down the line too!”

The website Your Mechanic meanwhile shared to its readers the many reasons why cars should remain clean especially during the winter season.

Once it starts to snow you should wash your car as often as possible. Maybe as often as every other week. If you plan to wash your car at home, grab a few five gallon buckets and fill them with warm water. Use soap that is specifically made for cars, not dishwashing soap as so many people do. Dishwashing soap can strip off the wax you worked so hard to put on, and even more importantly, the clear protective coat that was sprayed on by the manufacturer. Using warm water to rinse the car will not only keep your hands warm, it will melt away road grime.”
