Wash often

When it comes to cars, there are two types of people: those who keep their motors spotless, clutter free and regularly cleaned, and those who let dirt, rubbish and stains build up until a passer-by finally writes ‘clean me’ on the bonnet. Heavy mud, gravel, bird droppings and falling berries can damage the paint job on your car, and if they aren’t removed in good time, they could leave a mark. In winter months, salt on road surfaces is great for traction, but when it flicks up from tyres onto the underside of your car, it can cause premature rusting. Keep on top of dirt build ups to increase the longevity of the paint finish on your car, and the mechanics underneath. If you drive regularly with exposure to bird droppings, salt spreading or park under trees, get into the habit of a weekly clean. If you don’t do many miles and tend to keep your car in a garage, aim to clean your vehicle 1-2 times a month.

The authorities stress that this is a standard that all vehicles should meet all the time, it should not be thought of as a standard that is met only in order to pass the test before the vehicle is allowed to lapse into a poorer condition.
