Clean Car

Car Wash IMG_3586_1

It’s spring. Already for days beautiful sunshine from clear blue sky. Days about 8 degrees Celsius. Nights still below zero. The roads and streets are free from snow. It’s a delight to walk again, No need for spikes for the next six or seven months.

Last Monday we were visiting friends in Hämeenlinna. Our car was incredible dirty. You could not see, not even guess, what color. Why oh why hadn’t we washed it. I was ashamed, It was  annoying and embarrassing. I had Leif to park the car so our friends would not be able to see it from their place.

All week long I have daily been talking about taking the car to the automatic car wash. Every time there was some reason we could not. Yesterday I told hubby I refuse to go anywhere if the car looks like we have dipped it in mud. I’m going to wash it by hand right now. At first he said no. In his opinion the roads are still wet and dirty and the car soon will look the same again.

Well, anyway, I had made up my mind, I didn’t listen. I went for buckets with water. He finally gave in and promised to help. He did the roof as I’m too short to reach all the way up. I did all the rest 😉 Today or tomorrow I will take the steam cleaner and clean the seats.
