In order to start with this particular maintenance activity, you need to find an appropriate location for the same. Moreover, if you clean your car in direct sunlight, the soap applied on the car will dry out instantly before you start washing it. So, morning or evening is considered to be the most appropriate time to wash the car as the intensity of sunlight is quite less as compared to afternoon. We must always avoid washing the car under the tree as leaves, twigs and other things might get stucked to it. After this, you need a hose with enough pressure to clean off the sticky stuff or mud dumped in your car along with a stopper to save water. Also make sure you carry soap, a big sponge, clean rag and extra water full of buckets.
