    My hubby just got me my car (2006 H3) for my Birthday last month, so I have been really OCD about keeping the garbage out of it. I REALLY want to take some armor all to it, though. Sadly it’s raining right now, so I would probably look weird cleaning out my car in the parking lot. haha.

    My old car had those really icky spots full of crumbs. I could never get them all out!

    I clean it more than I have with any other car that I’ve owned.  It’s the nicest car I’ve owned so it gets treated a little better.  Now if I bought a newer car and/or was leasing, I’d clean that baby so much.  It’d be spotless.

    I rarely clean it, although the mess drives me crazy. I got all the trash and crap out of it today, just needs swept now. Smile FI will be thrilled, he’s been nagging about it for like a month.

    I get it washed once a month. They vacuum the inside and throw out the trash, but as far as cleaning out the junk that’s accumulated in there, never Embarassed Let me put it this way, if there was a homeless person living out of my trunk I probably wouldn’t notice it.

    I rarely clean it. I am more likely to clean it when I know that other people will be riding around with me in my car since I normally am the one traveling the farthest so people usually won’t let me drive since I usually have been in the car for about 2 hours before then.

    I SHOULD go to the car wash and get it washed.  Need to get all the winter stuffs off of it. Talking about salt, sand, etc from snow storms.

    @SweetRose2011: That’s just gross! I can’t believe he left it there! I haven’t seen anything too horrible yet, thank goodness! Your car doesn’t sounds messy! Darling Husband leaves all sorts of junk in his.
    I want to get mine washed, but it would be sort of pointless. It’s balck so everything shows. Haha.

    I clean my car usually 3-6 times a year or whenever I have gone on a road trip. I barely clean it in the winter because I hate cleaning my car when its cold outside!

    I clean and rain-x my windows maybe twice a year… but never get a car wash.  I let the rain or heavy snow do that.

    I get it washed and cleaned out at least twice a month. I very rarely wash it myself b/c it’s a full sized SUV and it would take a while. I usually make sure all of the “junk” gets taken out of the car as soon as we get out of the car. The console under my arm rest is full of sunglasses, my Bible, etc but that’s it.

    I keep my car pretty clean in the first place. I hate trash everywhere, so it’s usually out within the first 3 hours or day that it gets there. I was thinking about washing my car today… it’s been such a beautiful day! I walked to my car and noticed… gross film everywhere on the INSIDE of my windows. From what? My dog who loves to lick the windows when we go on road trips. EVERY window… gosh I’m anonyed. But I also am holding off because there is pollen everywhere on my car and I want to wait for the count to get down. Probably won’t happen again for a while 🙂

    I get my car washed like once/month. As for the inside I keep it pretty clean anyways, but maybe wipe it down twice/year or so?
