    I think I do mine too much. I wash by hand once a week. I wax by hand once every two weeks, I clay bar one a month. Only in early spring to early fall and winter months I wash and wax once a month at a spray wash and rinse when dirty.

    I wash my truck twice a week, but wax it every two months. I detail the inside once a month or more if needed. As for the wheels well, lately i've cleaned them every other day.

    I hand wash as often as I feel necessary based on bugs, dirt, debris, etc. I wax/detail twice, annually (spring and fall, basically). I try to beat the pollen fall with my first wax of the year, as it's heavy here -- meaning things are covered in yellow powder for nearly a month. Said yellow powder combined with water is bad mojo for paint -- hence waxing before it hits.

    I then wax again in the fall before it gets too cold to hand wash much. I wait as long as I can before doing it so that my wax gets through to spring, again.

    I will detail (without claying or waxing) 4-5 times per year depending on weather and travel.
