Car covered in dust!

After just cleaning & polishing my beautiful black Bella to a lustrous gloss, builders decided to start stripping the roof next door!!!
Total waste of time, car looks as if someone has just dumped a bag of sawdust all over it

I had a similar incident at work, next door was a sweet factory, Haribo, they cleared their sugar filters one afternoon and my brand new motorbike was covered in sticky white sugar powder.

I went around to the office and while I was complaining a security officer came out and wiped my petrol tank with a paper towel

He was appropriately reprimanded. Dunce.

Easy solution to that, don't clean and polish it

I feel your pain. I'm currently driving into Manchester every day as there are no trains (3 weeks into a 2 week hiatus whilst they switch to electric). The whole place is a building site so wherever I park, my car is covered in **** when I return.
