a car wash, what is that? i have not washed mine in the 11 months i have owned it. white always looks white! the only place the dirt is noticeable is just above the windshield.
(why bother washing it, i live on a dirt road. but i have kept my windows and mirrors clean)

I get a bucket of wash soap that's not supposed to streak. That is sometimes more claim than fact. I have a soft brush with a makeshift handle extension and a six foot step ladder. I start from the top and wash and rinse as I go. The windows are the last to get washed and rinsed. After I dry the windows and other water spot potentials I wipe down the sides.

I 've washed my white van twice since I bought it last August.

some in past threads about washing have suggested to take it to a truck semi trailer wash, there is a truckwash near me, the sign says 50 dollars for truck and trailer.

(a search for truckwash brings up this thread: "Car" Washing Tips)

i think the thread link said around 30 dollars elsewhere besides here, and that price is for a 52 foot trailer and the truck tractor pulling it, it might be worth checking the cost for a much smaller vehicle such as a high roof transit.

Truck washes will usually do a Transit as a “panel van” $25-35 will usually get the outside done.
