The cars around here are covered in it - both me and my neighbour have black cars but over the last few days both have looked decidedly brown-beige :(

Washing as frequently as you can is the only cure I feel. :roll:

A lot of the pollen reported in papers is stripping the paint, and is very course so scratches paintwork easily so be careful on removal and cleaning.
Best keep her in the garage while this is happening.

Yes pleanty of running water from house hose, not from a jet washer as this can blast the fine grit into the paint, so use water hose on slow shower spray at first then on slow centre this should more it nicely. ;) will be out doing mine again about 12.00am then again in the morning i would not advise to try and polish the car while this is going on as no sooner you have washed it the process starts all over again with in 30-40 mins what a nightmare. :-x :hissyfit:

I wondered why mine was covered in an orangey dust yesterday, less than 24 hrs after I'd washed and polished it - thought it might be sand blowing over from the Sahara, like we had some years back :panic:
