How do you deal with the POLLEN!??

Ok,

Being new here to GA, I gotta ask you guys. Whats with the freakin pollen?

i mean, I looked outside one day and my truck (normally midnight blue) is freakin yellow. So it had been awhile since it had a good wash and wax, so I took it to the alpine spa right down the road. $40 for a full wash and hand wax (including interior windows/vacuuming). Not too bad a price, to be honest.

But here we are a week later, and my truck is yellow again. Is there some secret I need to know, or do I need to keep cleaning my danged truck every week?

You paint it yellow !!!!! Then you only have to keep the glass clean.


Is there some secret I need to know?
Not really anything I know of, If we could come up with a product to do that we would be millionaires !!!!

Patience is the key word here. It will pass with time. Most of what you are seeing is Pine Pollen. I wash and wax my rig good once a month and then run it thru a cheap wash once a week during the pollen season.

Looks like he will not have to wait. The warm winter didn't kill many bugs. I primed the hood of the Bronco Saturday, and when I got through it looked like a large piece of grey Fly Paper. Not exactly the look I was going for, but dead bugs do not rust.

When pollen season hits, just go to a $1 spray off wash.
