    Default How Often Do You Clean Your Truck?

    I think I probably clean out the "trash" about once per week in our vehicles, then depending on what the weather is like I wash maybe 2x or 3x per month.

    There are all of these great $3 drive-through car washes that have popped up around here that do a pretty good brush-free job of washing and they usually offer free high-suction vacuums at the end.

    I continually clean one is allowed to keep garbage in my truck GIGO ( garbaege in, garbage out ).....I wash it at least
    once a week, and in the Winter, sometimes I pressure wash the crap off it twice aweek ( only costs $3 each time ). I do need to do a
    good vacuuming, but it is -10 today and windy. Hope everyone had a good holiday.

    I pretty much wash it when it needs it. I don't like riding in a dirty vehicle. Since I don't drive it that much it stays fairly clean.

    Wash it whenever it needs it with clear weather ahead or after visiting my sister when sap, pine needles and bird poop gets all over it, plus there is a good car wash on that side of town.
