Time to complete

You can have your car washed and vacuumed at an automatic or drive-through car wash in about 15 minutes. A professional hand wash may take longer.

How often?

Most experts recommend having your car washed at least every other week. If your ride gets more exposure to the elements, you may want to wash it more often.

Pay as little as $3 for a basic wash at a drive-through provider, while a premium wash usually costs in the $10 to $20 range.

Watch out for
