Clean Your Car in a Drought

California has been experiencing water shortages for the last few years, so residents have been left searching for ways to control their water usage. While washing your car usually takes quite a bit of water, we have some tips on how to clean your car without using any water at all.

Keep Your Car Waxed

One of the best ways to keep your car clean is to keep a nice coat of wax on your vehicle since dust is less likely to stick to a clean, polished surface.

Use a Duster

If your car does happen to pick up a layer of dust, avoid going straight for the car wash or hose. Instead, grab a California Car Duster to wipe away the dirt. If the dirt or mud is a bit more serious, there are still plenty of detailing products out there that will remove the dirt without scratching the surface of your car.


Of course, preventing your car from getting dirty in the first place is the best method of all. Although it can be a bit of a hassle, some people use car covers whenever they park to prevent dust from blowing on their vehicle.

Another strategy is to avoid parking beneath power lines and the edges of buildings, which is where birds like to sit.

You will certainly have to make use of a traditional car wash from time to time, but these tips will help significantly in limiting how often you have to turn the hose on your car.
