Best to do it when you can in this weather to get the worst of the salt off. Trouble is you have to use a lot of water to get the grit off as well = even more ice!

Just make sure the water goes in the gutter if poss and is not left over the drive/pavement.

Yeah, Canyon Red doesn't look too good when covered in salt does it?

It kind of goes a dusty pink colour !!

Still my favorite colour when clean though. Not too many of them about either.

Oh and yes.... you are a madman washing a car during a snow shower.

Oxford, if your cars not Canyon Red, sadly you're not welcome on this thread.

Only kidding mate. it is frustrating when you don't have time to clean.

Glad to hear you've finally resolved your next car dilemma.
