How clean is your car?

Published: Thursday 23rd of May 2013 | Author: Naidre | Category: Servicing

The long summer days are starting to creep in (slowly) so now is the time to dig out your bucket and sponge and get washing. According to the, “Men care more about cleaning a car's bodywork and women worry about the interior”… sounds like the perfect combination!

When men take to the task of cleaning their dirty car, they head straight to the bucket and sponge to tackle the car's exterior, according to, while women are far more likely to ignore the outside and instead dive inside with a hoover. If however you have the sole responsibility of cleaning the entire car it’s worth remembering, cleaning your car not only makes it look great but can also help maintain its value.

There’s nothing more rewarding that looking at your gleaming car after spending most of the day washing, polishing and hovering – but you need to make sure you’re not doing more harm than good.

“Imagine that your cars paintwork is the skin on your face. Then imagine what your face would look like if, every time you washed it, you used the cheapest soap, applied it with a bottle cleaning brush from the kitchen, rinsed with cold water and dried it using your hair dryer. Chances are it would rarely look its best!” (

Interestingly, “men put far more effort into ensuring their vehicle's bodywork is gleaming and pristine, with more than a quarter washing their cars on the outside once a fortnight”, according to the Telegraph website. By contrast, women strive for a fresh and welcoming interior with nearly 57% hoovering the inside at least four times a year. 

As well as the aesthetics, your car needs some TLC under the hood too, which is where Concorde Auto Centre can help.
