Mines black so its dirty 2 secs after I wash it, so I was mine once a month just to get all the crap off it.

If it snows I immediately wash it to get the salt off.

I wash once a week in the summer. During winter, once a month. We don't get salt on our roads, we get crushed cinder rock. Does same thing without rust damage to vehicles.

When it rains is the only time it gets washed.

If I spray it with a hose the rust falls off, so then my driveway looks like is rusty for a week.

I think black is the hardest to keep clean.

Once in a while in the winter (I've washed it probably 5 times now) and every weekend in the summer.

I washed it the night before I left for work for the week. Sucks being loaned to another area but overtime is plentiful and free breakfast haha.
But I've washed it twice in about a month of ownership.
