Hey, Girlfriend!

❀ Making the World a Brighter Place One Friendship at a Time

You will need:

  1. Bucket of Warm Soapy Water
  2. Cleaning Cloth
  3. Hose To Rinse Car
  4. Towel for Drying

Rinse car thoroughly.  Wash a section at a time with soapy water.  Rinse.  Wash again. Rinse.  Clean inside gas cap.  Clean around trunk opening and door openings.  Clean windshield wipers.  Detail wheels.  With tweezers, pick pine needles out of rubber seals around windows, from inside trunk and hood openings, and from the gaps around side mirrors.  Spot wash car once more.  Rinse.  Dry thoroughly to avoid spotting and streaking.

Temperature:  33˚F or above

Time:  Minimum 1 Hour


Get in clean car.  Drive 3 blocks.  Slow down for mud puddle.  Get out to take picture of a Little Free Library.  Get back in car before realizing you have stepped on a pile of fresh dog pooh.  Blame the terrible stench on the free book you just scored.


Drive home.   If it doesn’t rain, repeat instructions.DSC04438

    I love it! What do you do when a neighbor has a tree taken down, and the grinding takes place right next to your car – which then gets covered with dust – and then it rains to make a paste? XO, Janea


    1. What a mess that would make! I think you would need to saturate it well and use soapy water and a soft cloth, being careful not to grind the wood paste into the paint. Yikes!

    Haha, you crack me up! I think you might like a hose on full pressure as opposed to tweezers for the pine needles, but you clearly take very good care of your car. I remember being paid 25 cents by Amy to wash her car when I was little.


    1. Amy! That’s funny. Sarah, the more pressure I used, the deeper the needles went.

    You crack me up! I’m supposed to be sitting here quietly at work, looking professional. I couldn’t help laughing out loud… So sorry about the dog pooh part. That stinks! I also owe Sarah an apology for being so cheap back in the day, but I always thought of that deal as a win win! 😉 Love you sisters!


    1. That’s one of the perks of having younger siblings! 😉💗👸

    To add to your car washing experience I do recall with my first car which I was a proud owner of a ford pinto , color blue . I thought I would be so smart and buff my car, only to realize I probably didn’t read the full instructions on the waxing procedure. It was a hot summer day in Yakima I lathered my car all up with the wax let it sit for awhile and then proceeded to wax it with a buffer. Only to find it buffed my paint all off of course in spots. Then to top it off, I had rubber lining on the floors inside my car, so I decided to take a hose with high pressure and blow that sucker good, really… OMG … what was I thinking.


    1. I am laughing so hard right now! Hilarious!


We love to hear from you!
