Talking Am I sick???

My wife says I have some kind of sickness because I am obsessed with washing my car and keeping it clean. I am now starting to think she's right I actually woke up early today and washed my car at 7 am before I had to go to work......

Are there any others out there with this illness?

I park outside, so it doesn't really matter. But man we had a flash flood last night around 11pm, then it just stopped raining and dried up for the morning commute. The weather this year is nuts. I don't know where the water is on my building so I can't wash it when I want to. I know there is one, I just need to find it.

But washing a car at 7 in the morning is kind of crazy.

<----- sick also i guess. I keep bottle of armorall in truck with shamie. The sad thing is i live on a gravel driveway now. Does that make your skin crawl (lol) does mine. I cannot stand for my car to ve dirty, anywhere. That includes inside doors, hood are hatch. The door jams get cleaned everytime i clean outside. Fenderwells around tires stay clean also, well when i clean them that is.

You mean black only looks clean for one day. black does not like suck up dirt like a vacuum. Why would you only clean your car when it "looked" dirty. People who dont buy a black car soly b/c they dont want there car to be "dirty" all the time....are just lazy. All colors get just as dirty as every other color. You should clean your car when it is dirty, whether it looks that way or not. Just my two cents.
