I knew about the advantage of brushless washes. I have been going to brushless washes for years now.
Very interesting info about the winter washing and the effects of pressure washing. Thanks, I didn't know about that.
Unfortunately I have no choice but to go to an automatic car wash, since my condo associaton doesn't allow, nor does it have the facility, for hoses.
I will see if they hose cars down first in winter, before they go through the wash.
Thanks for the info about what is corrosive; I guess that is what I was getting at. I wasn't sure (until I read your reply) how corrosive, if at all, "plain" dirt is.
Of course, it shouldn't be left on too long, but at least it isn't going to harm the finish nearly as quickly as dried up salt, tree sap, tar, bird shit etc.
I knew salt, tree sap and bird shit/crap was not good for the finish.
