Growing up through the age of super-trucks, wild paint jobs, humongous 17" wheels, etc... I thought most of this information was just common knowledge. Apparently, the proper way to wash a vehicle isn't just something everyone knows. While you can get away with running through the high-pressure car washes once in a while, you're gonna need that hand-wash deep clean at least twice a year to keep that familiar grime-film at bay.

Yes, it's a ton of work that will most likely take you the better part of the day... but it's also something you don't have to do often. If you like your vehicle, take care of it the proper way. That doesn't mean you need a pro-grade pressure washer and foam bomb... You can do the same with stuff you likely already have. Just hit play, take notes, and do work.
