Mine gets it about once a week with the MR.Clean kit. Then it gets waxed. In the winter I take it to a Car wash and then run it home to nice warm garage to dry out. I love how it stands out in the winter because everyone elses vehicle is just sick.

about 2 times a week, each time i wax the outside with NXT, she never has a chance to be dirty unless i go wheeling, which i did this weekend, was out all day wheeling got home at 4 and washed her and finished around 9, she was a very dirty girl, inside and out...

Washing my black truck in the winter in new england is an exercise in futility. It will be white within two days tops.

usually depends how often i drive it but i try to wash it once a week, sometimes twice. if im in school, i come home firday and leave sunday, ill wash it before i leave and maybe once during the week.

in the winter i try to wash it once a week no matter what. sometimes if its salty ill wash it.

i hardly ever hand wash it, i just use the car wash. sometimes ill just rinse if off if its dusty or just rained.

after i wash it, if im home, ill let it dry and quick wax it. then ill sweep the interior and calif. dust the interior. and of course ill calif. dust the outside whenever it needs it.

hmm...about once a month...at the most...i am sorta lazy about that, and with a black truck its dirty the next day, usually do it after a mod so i can get some pics, or if the inside starts to smell...then time for some shampoo...
