Is there a pattern in the maddness :) ?

Pure curiosity kind of a question to those who are obsessed with their cars being spotless. Is it just your cars or does it apply to other things, i.e. shoes, garden, desk etc?

Re: Is there a pattern in the maddness :) ?

I like neat and tidy everything if possible but I'll tolerate mess. But my car is important to me and I look after it inside and out. If you do things properly and use the right gear, you don't have to spend every waking hour cleaning the car. With a good surface finish and a good wax coat, it's easier to keep clean than a grotty car that gets dragged to the £5 bucket boys every couple of weeks. It seems odd to me to spend thousands of pounds on a piece of automotive art (which is what every AR is) and then not look after it.

Cheers,

Nigel

So, it looks like for most of you it`s cars only. Weird... or maybe not - I have to say I like things clean, tidy and in order but it`s only when it comes to my car I actually DO it, as for other things it somehow never happens
