I splurge a bit...

I know, our car is small enough and would take only probably 45 mins. to some or the max would be 1.5 hour to do a regular car wash but I feel big money today so I help support the local mobile car wash/detailer owner in my area
Heres the result and not bad for $35 (I decided to just put the result, not the whole process)

You should get it full exterior detailed for ~$250... If you have the money to spend $35 on a single car wash, I'm sure you can spend that on a detail job :P

And a good quality wax will last a few months, or even a year if its stored inside. And if you wash it frequently enough, it will appear the same as it did when you picked it up from the detailer.

It's actually my first time getting a mobile car wash. I usually wash my own and if not, I take them to AJ's Hand Wash.

when it comes to detail, I do them twice a year (before the change of season) and clay bar it once a year. I mainly use Griots Product and learned most of it from Perfectlap

Lately my knee and back is acting up due to snowboarding accident few years ago, so I start looking for a mobile service

+1 on AJ's. Great place for a hand wash or full detail.

Before I got the car repainted few months ago, I have the same thoughts as you are..feeling guilty as I didn't really give her the TLC she needed for almost 6 months due to workload. Almost all summer long last year, I car wash it 3 times only
