Winter time bath!

It was 30 degrees here today but what the hell. I have not had any free time or a sunny day to spend hand washing the Jeep and today was the first chance. Cold or not I took it!

Your Jeep looks good! I did the same thing the other day on my daughter's 04 Liberty (192,000 miles!) but used my soft bristle boat brush so my hands would not get cold; would definitely not use the brush on my Limited though, too cold it has to go to the car wash I guess. Dave

Got my hands cold and everything... I used warm water with the car wash so my hands wouldn't get cold.

I did it once and never again. My hands were so cold. Now I go to the touch less during winter.

I do too but the touch-less cars washes don't clean very well especially with Maximum Steel lol. I had a silver 2010 GC (kinda wish I had gotten silver again) but I love Max Steel so oh well. The touch-less car wash worked for it, but for max it's a whole different story.

Looks great! Hand washing when it's that cold is rough, nice job.

Like you, I went for the Maximum Steel & like the color when clean.

Had a zen like moment yesterday with hand wash and polish here:

Of course, this morning it's snowing so it won't stay clean for long!

Looks great. When mine are real filthy in the winter, I'll run them through a touchless, underbelly wash. Then, I'll pull into the garage and do an ONR (Optimum No Rinse) hand wash. My garage always stays above freezing.

The houses where I live are real close together and don't have a garage :-(
Good thought though. ugh and a late thought I should have multi-quoted lol
